Is your roof covered in Moss, Lichen, Algae, dirt and Grime?
If you are asking yourself like many other homeowners, What can I do to counter attack the problem, and get my roof back to it’s finer glory.
Is there a solution?
First i would like to educate you about the reason why roofs in a lot of areas have a thriving infestation of these organic matters in the UK these days. It is mainly due to different weather conditions and changing climates, plus, believe it or not, less pollution than previous years.
As climate changes have kicked in over the years, we are now experiencing hotter summer months twinned with warmer damp winters, these damp humid conditions are a perfect breeding ground for moss, lichen, algae and weeds to thrive in this environment.
Some of organic vegetation brings new problems and concerns to our homes and roofs. Mainly the roots that penetrate the tiles and cement works on the ridges, valleys and hips, Over time the cement loosens and degrades. As your tiles are porous they can split due to the expansion of the penetrating root systems and continual ice and thaw through the winter months. Water ingress follows and can seriously damage the timbers and structure of our roofs. Left unattended for long periods of time, it can result in costly repairs.
When the moss is left and creates a moss carpet effect which is unsightly on your beautiful home, this soaked moss can increase the weight of the overall roof, giving extra stress to an already fragile roof surface.
Many of these problems can be avoided with a good professional roof cleaning and sealing programme. It will pay dividends in the future if you get the job completed by a fully insured tradesmen that do this kind of work day in and day out. All our staff are trained in roof cleaning and also health and safety. All our equipment is up to date and we only use state of the art machinery.
We offer a manual Roof cleaning solution as we know that a pressure washing option is too damaging to the tiles of your roof. After the initial clean we use a soft wash process followed by a biocidal fungal wash to kill all the spores and organic matter. This treatment is to prevent further re-growth of moss, lichen and algae

We offer this Roof cleaning and treating service around the Nottingham and Derby areas. Moss lichen and algae can create expensive roofing repairs and problems if not dealt with accordingly. We can safely remove these unsightly elements from your roof before they cause roof tiles to split due to penetration from their roots and freezing over the winter months.
As your tiles are porous they offer a perfect breeding ground for Moss, lichen and algae. Once removed we can treat the roof with a biocidal fungal wash that will protect your roof from further re-growth.
It is advisable to get the biocide treatment every 5 years as a preventive measure to kill any new spores to prevent any re-growth and keep your roof in top condition. It all depend on the are where your house is situated, if you are surrounded by trees in a rural area this time could be reduced to around 3 years per treatment. Some unscrupulous companies will offer you a 10 year guarantee on re-growth for your roof, but i assure you these far fetched promises do not pan out in reality.
To be honest and fair it is very difficult to give you a price over the phone as there are many factors to take into consideration like the following.
The age of the roof and how heavily laden with moss, lichen, algae and dirt, has built up over time?
What type of roof that you have on your home and the tiles and material they are made from, clay, concrete, slate?
Does the roof need any repairs or maintenance work to be completed after the initial clean?
Does the roof have difficult areas to access and clean?
This is why we cannot price your roof over the phone.

Avoiding rogue traders
Unfortunately in this line of work there are many rogue tradesmen that will part you from your hard earned money. Posing as legit roof cleaners their work will be sub par to what a professional roof cleaner can do. Please be careful when accepting a cheap price from one of these so called companies, if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. A decision to get the work done by one of these unscrupulous cowboys could cost you dearly in the long run, and you have no comebacks if they are uninsured or do a runner. The damage they may cause can run into thousands of pounds and leave your roof open to the elements until repaired.
