Moss and Algae Roof Clearing
Roof moss removal is a vital part of roof maintenance. A thick layer of moss can act like a sponge – holding moisture and preventing your roof from drying properly. Moss can damage the materials used to protect the roof and, in some cases, cause the structural roof frame to decay.
Moss and Algae can spread quickly over roofs, especially if they are often shaded. Once moss has grown, it will spread, causing harm to your roof as it grows. Moss will grow its roots into the granules of your roof tiles, loosening them, giving them a higher chance to fall off and making them a safety hazard.
Cleaning and removing the moss and algae from your roof is a great precautionary measure to stop damage to the tiles, reduce the likelihood of leaks, and prolong the life of your roof.
If your property is prone to growing Moss, it is good practice to get a regular roof clean. Moss can increase the chances of frost damage to the roof ridge mortar and roof tiles as moss holds moisture which freezes and expands in winter. Moss also blocks gutters and downpipes which can cause gutter flooding.
We can remove Moss from all types of roof:
- Flat Roofs
- Pitched Roofs
- Tiled Roofs
- GRP Roofing
Our roof cleaning team will leave your roof clean and clear of all moss/dirt/debris. The build-up of dirt and moss on your roof can cause damage and contribute to leaking gutters, eventually causing costly damage to walls of the property.
