The damp British climate can create perfect conditions for moss, algae and lichens to establish and thrive on any roofing material. Biofilm growth can be unsightly; moss growing on roofs can block gutters and downpipes. The additional weight of wet moss on a roof can cause an unnecessary load and stress on the roof structure. And eventually, roof cleaning often needs to be considered.
During winter, the repeated freeze-thaw process can cause roof tiles to break or work loose. This in turn can lead to premature depreciation and a deterioration of the appearance of the roof. As the first line of defence against the elements, your roof will be subjected to a considerable amount of stress throughout its lifetime. In fact, there is nothing more damaging than the freeze-thaw cycle, and this natural weather phenomenon can be exacerbated by insufficient maintenance.
In order to solve these problems, roof cleaning is likely to be the most cost-effective solution if you want to prevent damage to your property or simply maintain its "kerb appeal" and exterior appearance.
The roof on the property featured to the right was pressure washed with a low-pressure cleaning system and then treated with a residual biocide to kill any remaining moss spores and lichen infestation. Ensuring the roof stays cleaner, for longer and isn't at risk from unavoidable freeze-thaw cycles. You can see the contrast between the tiles that have been treated and those that had not yet been cleaned. Regular re-treatment to prevent re-growth can be applied - at a suitable frequency to ensure it retains a cleaner appearance at a greatly reduced cost.
