We can clean and remove Moss from your Roof, then treat the surface to Stop the Return
There are different reasons to consider removing moss from your roof.
Is moss blocking your gutters, falling on paving and cars?
Is it lifting tiles?
If left untreated, moss will spread. Water trapped within the moss, will lead to dampness against the tile surface, this can cause damage especially over winter months.
Whatever the reason we can help!
We use scrapers that fit the profile of your tile to remove the majority of Moss / contaminates from your Roof, we do not use invasive pressure washing that can damage tiles, cause water ingress or make a mess around your property
We then Softwash* apply a Biocide treatment that controls biological growths – algae, lichen, fungi, moss and mould – that cause red, green, yellow and black staining
Over the following months, the dark coverings will die away, the surface will naturally rejuvenate and your Roof will return to its original colour**
“Many Businesses offering moss removal don’t understand biological factors and fail to treat the surface after, this allows growth to re-establish quickly, with a fresh clean surface to grow on”
