Roof Cleaning Kent and Roof Moss Removal Kent
We provide professional roof cleaning Kent and roof moss removal Kent. The climate in Kent varies throughout the year from hot summers to warm wet winters. Most roofs, like any part of a home, have a habit of getting dirty. Damp roof tiles are very susceptible to the growth of moss and algae. This can cause damage to a roof if left over a long period. Furthermore, most homeowners do not have the equipment or the desire to attempt roof cleaning.
Can my roof tiles be painted?
Your home is highly likely to be the largest single investment you will ever make, so it certainly makes sense to try and protect its value. Furthermore, it follows that periodic general home maintenance is essential to keep a property in good condition. Roof coating or roof tile painting is just one area that can make a vast 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 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.
Whether you have slate, clay or the more modern concrete roof tiles, all can be effectively cleaned, repaired and treated. All sensitive areas are covered to protect them from water ingress. Guttering systems are disconnected to ensure heavy moss deposits are not left to block your guttering. Any roof cleaning Kent will be carried out with professional roof cleaning equipment.
