Roof Cleaning Yorkshire and surrounding areas
Need a roof cleaning Yorkshire? – Look no further.
Through years of experience in the industry EK Roof Cleaners have developed their own process of exterior cleaning. Developed by the business owner we use a unique blend of ingredients that will kill any moss, algae or lichen. This detergent is safe for animals and yourselves once the roof cleaning is complete.
Roof Cleaning Yorkshire – the process.
Stage 1. Application of a our uniquely developed high-strength fungicidal wash to remove and eliminate any remaining fungal spores. This will prevent further moss growth for approximately 3 years. This growth type is a common occurrence throughout Yorkshire.
Stage 2. After the wash has had time to work we then use pressure washer to lightly rinse off the wash, rinsing downhill only. Please be aware that using pressure from below the line of tiles can damage your roof. This is because water can ingress up under the lip of a tile. EK Roof Cleaners will always try to get above the apex of your home and we NEVER use excess pressure or rinse up to the apex of your home.
Stage 3. Replacement of any broken or missing tiles and any necessary repointing.
Stage 4. On completion we then spray your roof with a water sealant which is a high performance transparent water repellent. Specifically formulated to prevent water penetration on all substances such as Brick, Stone, Slate, ceramics, concrete, pebble dash and render. This makes it ideal for waterproofing roof tiles.
Stage 5. Thorough clean down of all surrounding walls, windows, gutters and complete removal of any moss.
What comes next?
Following the restoration there is an option of applying a high quality resin based clear protective sealant to the roof.
The sealant which is micro porous allows the roof to breathe and also insulates, waterproofs and weather proofs the tiles. This prevents water penetration, further moss growth for up to 6 years and prolongs the life of the roof considerably.
Having your roof cleaned will enhance the appearance of your home or business premises and prolong its life. Moss causes many problems on a roof. This is due to its sponge like properties which allow it to retain many time its own volume of water. Moss freezes during the winter months causing damage to the tiles, as well as giving an unsightly appearance. Your roof will be professionally cleaned by skilled workmen and repairs can be carried out, such as re-pointing or replacing roof tiles. The roof is cleaned with a our unique detergent and a lance for rinsing purposes.
