Why Roof moss and algea cleaning may be the most important part of House maintenance

Roof Algae Is Much More Than An Aesthetic Concern

With the years, lichen and moss continue to grow in the spaces between the roof tiles or shingles, causing them to lift, which makes the roof unguarded to wind and leaks. Roof moss removal will prevent leaches and algae feast off your roof tiles and reach the wooden roof construction. Not having a roof tile cleaning for long period, is number one reason for damages on roofs and roof decks. Roof moss and lichen preserve water, which causes the roof wood decking to rot, and at some point will cause a serious roof repair.

 

When the water gets in through the cracks, it creates an environment hospitable to mold growth. Moss on roof is proven to be one of the most common issues when it comes to clogging your gutters as well. 90% of the cases with clogged gutters are from the accumulated moss on the roof.

 

Even If You Can’t See The Algae, You May Still Need A Cleaning

In its earliest stages of development, algae is completely invisible. So even if your roof appears to be okay, there’s a chance that the best time to have it cleaned is now. This is one of the reasons that professional roofers recommend you have a roof inspection around once every three years–the earlier you’re able to catch the problem, the better it is for your roofing.

 

Every year, people choose to replace their roof when in reality, a thorough roof cleaning would have saved them thousands of pounds and added years to the life of their roof. So, if you aren’t sure about what to do for your roof, consider roof cleaing before you make a decision.

Even if your roof is looking unsightly, it might not be time to replace it. A thorough roof cleaning can give your roof a fresh look and add years to it’s life.

 

What is Roof pressure cleaning?

Roof pressure cleaning, also known as power or jet washing, is the use of high-pressure water for Roof moss stain and algae removal. Also can be used for most of the external surfaces. It rejuvenates the color and turn tired looking surfaces back to new. This is the fastest known way to clean not only roof tiles, but also patios, driveways, patio furniture, walls, fences, wooden decking and many others. We use a high quality Mosmatic rotary cleaning equipment, which provides equal dispersion of the water jet over the roof tiles, resulting in minimal risk of tile damage.

 

 

Roof pressure cleaning is usually done when a high level of infestation of moss on your roof is reached, and the soft roof cleaning might not be most sufficient to completely remove it. However GoMoss professional roof cleaners in Buckinghamshire can advise on what would be the best for you, and offer a combination of both – pressure, and soft washing cleaning of your roof if needed, to provide excellent results and help you completely remove any moss, lichen and algae growing on your roof tiles or external surface.

Our Customers say

  • I was dreading replacing our cedar shake roof for all of the reasons you’d suspect.  From dealing with salesmen to throwing a lot of money at something I don’t even get to play with, I was not looking forward to any of this.  Scott from Rock Roofing made my re-roofing project easy.  What I liked: He and his crew show up on time.  He responds to emails/calls quickly.  He listens and offers suggestions.  What impressed me the most is that I left my cedar shake roofed house in the morning (Typical Sammamish 3300 sqft home) and when I got home that same day I had a beautiful, long-lasting composite roof.  Scott came back the next day to double-check the work and pick up a few odds-n-ends and we were done.  No muss.  No fuss.  I now laugh in the face of rain.  And by the way…  Our roof cost less than all the other estimates I received.

  • These guys literally rock (no pun intended).  Had a bad windstorm which resulted in all the bath/dryer vents needing to be replaced.  They were swamped with other projects, but the owner was awesome and delivered on his promise to help me (and they came out the same day I called them).  The installer was extremely professional, explained what he found, and did a super job.  If you need someone to help you with your roofing, whether it’s a new roof or repairing and existing one, this is the company I would go to.  Top notch all around.  Thanks, Rock Roofing!
