When it comes to roofs, like any part of your home, they have a habit of getting dirty. Moss, algae and lichen are a common cause of these dirty and unsightly roofs. Moss, algae and fungi normally begin their life cycle as airborne spores that settles on roofs, the spores on the northern exposure of the roof stand a better chance of survival because that portion of the roof is the last part to dry after a rain or morning dew. This raises the humidity on the surface of the tile, thus creating a perfect feeding and breeding ground.
If your roof is covered in moss, we have the solution
As roofs become older, the original protective layer on the face of the roof tile is gradually eroded by the elements. This type of erosion increases the porosity of the tile, allowing moisture to penetrate easily into the roof tiles. Moss will only thrive on damp or wet surfaces, and the moisture retained in the roof tile enables moss spores to establish themselves and become ingrained within the tile. On the majority of properties, it is the North or West facing that experience the greatest problems.
The build-up off moss on a roof is not only unsightly but can lead to blocked gutters and drains. Because moss retains a lot of moisture, the roof will also be consistently wet, this creates far greater heat transference through the roof increasing fuel bills and damp growth within the home. We provide a professional roof cleaning and moss removal service.
