Roof Cleaning & Moss Removal

Roof Cleaning – the source.

Obviously, we prefer it if moss from your roof keeps filling up your gutters and you keep getting annoyed at picking the bits up and then call us to clear the guttering. However, if you find enough is enough and you want to tackle the source we provide a roof clearing service to.

We can clear most roofs by hand but we will always check and do an inspection first. Our process is to remove by hand so as to avoid chemical treatment. A biological solution is sprayed after to prevent regrowth as much as possible. This method should last a good few years. I drive past my first job an still looks good after 10. Moss growth favours north facing and shaded roofs especially if shaded by trees, that is why you will usually have one side really bad and the other not as bad.

The effects of brushing moss off the roof can be quite dramatic as the picture below shows.

Moss

Moss growing on roofs is, for the most part, unsightly and can provide a constant supply for clogging up your guttering. In serious cases, moss can help promote water ingress into roofs by diverting water flow and growing larger in roof tile ridges and gaps.
