Roof Cleaning and Roof Painting Transformation by Registered Contractor Stuart Babbs

A dirty moss covered roof looks unsightly and can soon devalue the 'kerb appeal' of a property. However, once roof moss removal has been carried out, the transformational effect can be amazing. Whether you’re looking to stay in a house long-term or if you’re looking to sell, a clean roof can add value to your home.

Moss generally grows and spreads in damp and shaded environments and can severely damage the structural integrity of a roof. In particular, wet moss is heavy as it absorbs and retains moisture. If left too long, the roots of the moss will attach themselves to the tiles and start to degrade the protective coating on the roof tile. 

Roof painting totally transforms a property

If you are trying to sell your property, a dirty moss covered roof will certainly have a detrimental effect on the value. Furthermore, many surveyors will negatively highlight a moss covered roof in their survey and recommend roof moss removal prior to selling. Once roof moss removal has been carried out, this often results in a higher price being obtained for the property. It also follows that if a price has already been agreed and a condition of the survey is for the roof moss to be removed, then this often results in the seller having to lower the price.

Painting roof tiles with a high-quality roof coating like Climashield™ from Smartseal can give old roof tiles a total transformation. If roof tile painting is done by professionals it can make old roof tiles look like new again. However, the roof coating is only suitable for concrete roof tiles and cannot be used on slate, clay or terracotta tiles.

Having a roof tile paint applied can restore the surface colour of concrete roof tiles giving the impression of a new roof. In addition, the roof tile paint will protect the roof tiles from the harmful effects of UV light and leave it water resistant. Moreover, Climashield™ roof coating is specially formulated to allow the roof tiles to 'breathe' and flex which helps to prevent them from cracking
