With so much older style housing in the North East of England, it comes as no surprise to us that we receive many enquiries from homeowners looking for reliable and experienced roof cleaners. Although older properties often have roof tiles that are more brittle due to age, and repairs after roof cleaning are often necessary; these are challenges that we are happy to face. We always endeavour to keep damage and repairs to a minimum during pressure cleaning but sometimes it cannot be avoided due to the ‘weakness’ of older roof tiles. Older industrial towns around South Shields, Gateshead, Washington and Chester le Street are areas where roof repairs seem to be required more often than other parts of Newcastle.
Painting Roof Tiles
Roof tiles are very susceptible to continuous weathering and because of this, become more and more porous over time. As a result, this creates the ideal conditions for the growth of moss and lichens on roof tiles. Roof tiles which may have looked great to start with can begin to look very tired and grubby. Most people just accept that their roof will look dirty and are not aware of the options to create a better-looking roof. Replacing a roof is not an option because of the expense and this is generally only done when a roof is damaged beyond repair.
Roof coating or roof tile painting as some people call it is a much cheaper and more cost-effective alternative than replacing a roof. Roof coating is also a much quicker solution as it will only take a couple of days.
In addition to roof cleaning and roof repairs, we will also provide a roof coating and roof sealing service if required. Roof coating can transform the appearance of older roof tiles by making them look like new whilst providing a protective coating on the surface of the roof tiles. Roof sealing is also highly protective and leaves the tiles looking with no discernible change in appearance.
We can remove moss, dirt and algae from any type of roof. So please contact us and we will provide a FREE site visit and written quotation. For peace of mind, we have detailed what the stages of a typical roof clean below.
- Roof survey carried out to ascertain the area of the roof and identify broken or cracked roof tiles.
- Protect the areas around the property from overspray with tarpaulins.
- Spray fast killing anti-fungicides onto roof tiles to get rid of moss, lichen or algae.
- Clean the roof tiles downwards to avoid ingress of water into the roof void.
- Replace or repair any damaged, cracked or broken roof tiles.
- If required, apply a coloured roof coating or clear roof sealer to slow down re-growth of moss etc., and provide long-term protection from inclement weather.
Roof Tile Sealer
Having a clear roof tile sealer applied will help to protect any porous roof tiles from deterioration. Concrete roof tiles, in particular, are susceptible to moss growth, so making them non-porous can certainly help. Moreover, it is a much more cost-effective solution than the expensive replacement of a roof.
Another problem resulting from damp, porous roof tiles is higher energy bills due to the transference of heat from inside to out. Roof tile sealing can help reduce energy bills by keeping the roof tiles dry and preventing heat transference. Moreover, it will protect and improve the appearance of the roof as well as creating an invisible barrier preventing damp penetration.
Due to the very high levels of water resistance, Climashield™ Roof Sealer provides protection against dirt and grime. Using advanced surface impregnation it seals porous surfaces without altering the natural appearance. What's more once sealed the tiles will be protected against harsh weather conditions.
