Roof Cleaning Edinburgh and Roof Moss Removal Edinburgh
Roof cleaning companies in Scotland seem to be busier than anywhere else in the UK. Our roof cleaning contractors in Edinburgh receive many enquiries for all aspects of roof restoration, including roof repairs, cleaning and roof painting. They will carry out a professional roof cleaning service in Edinburgh and most towns across East Lothian. The prevailing weather conditions in East Lothian are often very severe, especially in winter. This can result in ongoing problems for porous roof tiles as frost, rain and snow can cause a gradual deterioration of the tile surface over time.
Due to adverse weather, many roofs in Edinburgh are in a poor state of repair and need an ongoing maintenance programme. Sometimes roofs in East Lothian and Edinburgh need totally replacing having deteriorated so badly over time. We can certainly help you do this but our preference is to carry out a roof clean and repair before complete replacement of the roof becomes inevitable. The biggest problem with roof tiles is that they are very porous, and a porous roof can often create the ideal conditions for many varieties of moss, lichen and algae to flourish. This is an ever-present problem for householders in Edinburgh and other parts of East Lothian.
If you are looking to have your roof cleaned then we can be of help. Damp roof tiles are extremely susceptible to the growth of moss and algae which can cause damage to a roof. Moreover, most homeowners do not have the necessary equipment or the desire to attempt roof cleaning themselves. This means that employing the skills of a professional roof cleaner is the best option when roof cleaning moss removal is required.
We provide a roof cleaning and roof painting and roof moss removal service in Edinburgh. The black streaks that you see on your roof are actually caused by algae, mould and other bacteria that are feeding, growing and spreading on your roof. Apart from being unsightly, this can shorten the lifespan of your roof and more importantly it can even present a health hazard. The moss and algae deteriorate the overall visual appeal as well as block gutters and make ground floor areas unsightly and slippery.
Roof Tile Painting Edinburgh
For a total transformation if you live in Edinburgh and would like your roof painted we recommend Smartseal's Climashield Roof Coating. It protects and makes an old roof look like new again. What's more, it restores the surface of concrete roof tiles giving them colour and the appearance of a brand new roof. Moreover, it will also protect from the harmful effects of UV light and leave it water resistant. Furthermore, it allows the roof tiles to breathe and flex and helps prevent them from cracking.
Roof coating or roof tile painting is just one area that can make a significant difference to the value of your home. If roof tiles are left too long without being looked after, they can detract from the look of a nice home. 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 always an option due to the expense and this is generally only required 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.

Surface preparation of a roof prior to cleaning is important to ensure the end result of the roof cleaning project is as good as it can possibly be. This often means pre-treating the roof first with a potent moss killing biocide, to completely kill off the moss and make it easier to remove during the roof cleaning process. After the pre-treatment has been done and left to take effect, the roof is cleaned off any ingrained dirt, grime and moss which may be present on the roof tiles.
