Roof Cleaning

Roof cleaning, moss and algae removal is another service available for homeowners throughout central Scotland. Our professional contractors can pressure clean all types of roofs and remove moss and algae that could potentially damge the roof in the long term.

With many satisfied customers for our roof cleaning service across Fife, Perthshire & Stirlingshire, we are confident you will be more than happy with the transformation we can bring to your roof.

If your looking to just have your roof cleaned it does not have to be power washed. Our more preferred method of cleaning is to have the moss removed manually then to spray the surface with a chemical which will kill off any live growth (Moss, algae and lichen) on the tile . The trouble with power washing a roof is that you create a perfect breading ground for further live growth by leaving a porous tile which will hold moisture (unless it is to have a coating applied). Treating the roof with this kills the bacteria within 24hrs, the following weather cycles will then wash away the remaining dead growth.   

Although this doesn't have the immediate effect of power washing it is much less abrasive and will give just as good a result if not better,  and will last longer than a washed surface.

This process can also be used on asbestos roofs  

Our roof coating process is done in 4 steps:-

Step 1: Roof Cleaning - The roof is pressure washed first to clean off any moss, algae, lichen, dirt and other loose 'material'. Any downpipes and guttering will be kept free of any residual waste during the cleaning process.

Step 2: Fungicidal treatment - Fungicidal wash is then sprayed onto the roof to help kill off any moss and lichen spores that may be living on the tiles. This will help prevent and reappearance of the future re-growth and reduce further maintenance.

Step 3: Roof repairs -  Once the cleaning has been done we can survey the roof and then repair any damaged or loose tiles, also checking any flashings, guttering, and mortar.

Step 4: Roof Sealer - We then coat the roof with a quality roof sealer  (with a 10 Year life expectancy) to help prevent future deterioration. For a complete transformation we can even colour the tiles to make them look like new.
