The Process For Roof Cleaning & Roof Moss Removal
- Initially, the roof will be treated with a powerful cleaning solution (our Green Clear) to eliminate the active growth of moss and lichen that many roofs in Middlesborough suffer from. This is highly important as not only can this harmful growth reduce the value of your property, but it can also physically damage the tiles, where the moss affects tile integrity causing breakage or complete loss of the tile. By leaving this growth to expand, your home is then put at a higher risk of water and debris damage, and it is less effective at retaining heat.
- The Roof Cleaning Middlesborough and Roof Moss Removal Middlesborough would then be carried out with specialist Roof Cleaning equipment. This will remove moss, algae, lichen, dirt and pollutants. Our contractors take the cleaning of any residential or commercial roof in Middlesborough with great care and can ensure that there are plenty of options available to you that will give your roof the original vibrancy it had when it was first installed.
- After Roof Cleaning, the roof can be inspected, and any long-standing damaged areas can be repaired. The defective mortar between crests, ridge and hip tiles can be hacked out and re-pointed using a fibre re-enforced polymer mortar. Also any loose ridges and crests can be re-bedded and damaged roof tiles replaced.
From Clean And Care To Quality: Our List Of Other Services
We can carry out roof repairs after the Roof Cleaning process has been carried out. The area can be fully assessed, and any long-standing damaged areas can be repaired. The defective mortar between crests, ridge and hip tiles can be hacked out and re-pointed using a fibre re-enforced polymer mortar. Also, any loose ridges and crests can be re-bedded and damaged roof tiles replaced. Once totally clean,ed the roof would have a biocide treatment to eliminate any remaining sub-surface moss spores and to prevent regrowth. All roofs would then benefit from the application of a protective coating or sealer.
Over the last few years several different techniques have been developed to allow existing roof tiles, fragile slate and clay tiles on properties to be cleaned without the need for the roof to be pressure washed. These methods include the application of advanced Roof Cleaning products and the use of roof ‘scrapers’ on telescopic poles that allow moss removal from the ground or gutter level. Once the moss has been removed, an inhibitor is then applied to keep moss and algae at bay. As part of the process, we always carry out gutter cleaning for our customers to help avoid leaking and overflowing pipes.
Smartseal Roof Sealer has been developed to combat the constant problems of moss and weed growth and to enhance the natural colour and aesthetic appeal of new or mature roofing. This sealed surface will increase abrasion resistance and also protect from erosion and weed infestation and provide a barrier to contaminants, thereby facilitating easy maintenance. A roof sealer will make any roof tiles water resistant, which will further help to slow down the re-growth of moss, algae and lichen. It will also help to prevent further deterioration of roof tiles and help to prevent costly roof repairs.
Smartseal Roof Coating is water vapour permeable, allowing a roof to 'breathe'. This importantly enables the roof tiles to expel moisture from the inside out. Smartseal roof coatings are 100% acrylic; they are also mixed with additional binders, which allow the roof tiles to flex with cold and heat as is normal.
In addition to providing contractors to undertake the Roof Cleaning and Roof Moss Removal, we also supply products directly for purchase, such as our Roof Sealer, Roof Coating as well as moss removal products such as Green Clear and Green Clear Pro.
