ROOFS DRY – CLEANED, (MOSS REMOVED BY WIRE BRUSH)
GUTTERS CLEANED, REPAIRED
We clean your roofs of all moss and algae and clear your gutters from leaves and debris which is vital in order to avoid water ingress and costly damage to the fabric of your property. We clean your roof using only wire brush, not water pressure which can damage your roofing and will penetrate into your roof cavity.
Roof Cleaning Process
The roof cleaning process will remove all moss, algae, lichen and any other dirt residue that has contaminated your roof over time. Throughout the roof cleaning process, we will make sure that downpipes and gutters are fully cleaned out and left clear of any residue from the roof.
Once your roof has been cleaned, the walls, windows and perimeter of your home will be rinsed down and left in the same condition it was prior to the work commencing.
Why We Clean Roofs with Wire Brush
Roofing experts warn that roof tiles should not be subjected to high-pressure washing or jet washing for many reasons which include:
- Removal of Lichen and moss by jet washing will invariably remove the granular surface finish and potentially damage the structural integrity of the tile, this process followed by a surface treatment application would invariably invalidate any tile manufacturer’s guarantee.
- Interlocking roof tiles are not designed to be walked upon, foot traffic can cause these interlocks to break opening the roof up to water ingress.
- Inappropriate pressure washing can potentially force water up between the tiles and roofing felt into the roof space. Bedded mortar and flashings can also be blasted off using this method, potentially leading to further costs for rectification.
This is why we clean all roofs by hand using a wire brush.
