The climate in the UK 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 which can cause damage to a roof if left over a long period.
Roof cleaning is fast, safe and affordable
A 'carpet' of green moss growing on a roof can look very unsightly and can also lead to many other problems if left unchecked. Moreover, gutters and downpipes can become blocked and the extra weight of wet moss can cause stress on a roof structure. So during the winter months, the freeze and thaw process may cause roof tiles to break. This can result in premature degradation of your roof and it can start to look unsightly. Furthermore, if this is left to deteriorate further, it could cost you a substantial amount of money for roof repairs.
The good news is that our services for roof cleaning in Winchester and roof moss removal in Winchester are safe, effective and can be done very quickly for most homeowners. Additionally, the cost of roof cleaning in Winchester is also within the budgets of most homeowners. It can also improve the look and can add value to a property.
Our roof cleaning contractors can professionally clean your roof and transform its appearance. The roof cleaning moss removal process will vary depending on what our customers are looking for. Once a roof has been cleaned by one of our registered roof cleaning contractors, the roof tiles will then be treated Moss Clear Pro. This strong and effective biocide will impregnate the roof tiles, stop germination of any moss spores and inhibit any regrowth. Although Moss Clear Pro will continue to work long after the roof has been cleaned, for best results we recommend regular top-up treatments to keep the moss from growing back too quickly.
Moss Clear Pro can be used all year round as a preventative treatment as well as for general roof moss removal. For general roof cleaning in Winchester and roof moss removal, the product is applied in a more concentrated solution.
Applying a protective roof sealer can help prevent the growth of moss
Our roof tile sealer comes with 10 Year Guarantee and will help to protect the roof tiles from deterioration. The roof tile sealer will make roof tiles water-resistant which in turn makes it harder for moss to grow on them. Furthermore, there is no need to carry out the expensive replacement of a roof just because there is substantial moss growth.
Damp roof tiles also contribute to higher energy bills due to the transference of heat from inside to out. Applying a roof tile sealer can help reduce energy bills by keeping the roof tiles dry and stop heat transference. Moreover, it will protect and improve the appearance of a roof as well as create an invisible barrier to prevent damp penetration. Once the roof cleaning process has been carried out and the roof tiles have been left to dry the roof sealer offers further protection for the roof tiles without altering their appearance. A roof sealer provides high levels of water resistance, which in turn helps to keep the tiles free from the build-up of dirt and grime.
Painting roof tiles after roof cleaning
Some roof tiles can look old even after cleaning and other options may need to be considered. When this happens, a clear roof sealer will not help as it will not change the appearance of roof tiles. However, there is a solution that can make an old roof look like new for a total roof transformation.
An application of a coloured roof coating like Climashield™ can be applied to turn an old-looking roof into a new one. For complete peace of mind, Climashield™ also comes with a 10-year Guarantee. The durable roof coating restores the surface colour of concrete roof tiles giving them the appearance of a new roof. It also leaves the roof tiles water-resistant and protected from the harmful effects of UV light. Climashield™ Roof coatings also allow roof tiles to flex, expand and contract with changes in temperature, which helps to prevent cracking.

Roof moss removal can improve the look and add value to your home
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. So 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.
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.
Roof cleaning can extend the lifespan of your roof
Moss generally grows and spreads in damp and shaded environments and can severely damage the structural integrity of a roof. 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.
Apart from the growth of the moss, the accumulation of moisture can lead to bacteria and mould growth which can become a health hazard. Although these factors do not necessarily mean your roof needs to be replaced, it is a sign that the roof needs cleaning. It also follows that a clean 'moss free' roof will have a much longer lifespan than one covered in moss.
Can roof cleaning be carried out quickly?
There are some factors to be considered as to the amount of time it will take to clean a roof. The size of the roof is the key factor, so a sizeable detached house will take a lot longer than a small bungalow. However, if there is a 'carpet' of moss on the roof, this will take a lot longer to clean than if it’s just dirt, grime, and algae. Our registered contractors will provide FREE roof cleaning quotes throughout Wiltshire and Hampshire. If you would like to know the cost of roof cleaning and how long it will take, please get in touch by requesting a quote.
Roofs throughout the UK are a perfect breeding ground for moss, algae and lichen with our UK climate allowing them to flourish. Without treatment, the fungus on the roof will cause the tiles to become brittle and more easily crack while leaving the roof covered in a mossy green coating. This not only ruins the appearance of your roof but will also increase future maintenance costs, owing to needing to replace a large number of tiles. We provide professional roof cleaning Winchester and effective roof moss removal in Winchester.
Smartseal™ has a number of roof cleaning contractors based near Winchester.

After an enquiry has been made, we will get in touch with a local contractor and have them contact you directly to arrange a convenient time to visit and inspect your roof.
The roof cleaning process is the first step in a five-step roof restoration process, it consists of a deep clean that will remove any fungal growth and dirt that is present on the surface of the roof. During this stage any damaged tiles will be given attention and, if necessary, replaced. While the cleaning process will remove all surface fungal growth some spores may still be present within the pores of the tiles. Because of this, the contractor will treat the surface with a biocide treatment to eradicate any remaining spores.
For added protection, every homeowner is given the option to have their roof coated with Smartseal™ impregnating sealer or Climashield™ clear or coloured roof coating. These products, while entirely optional will prevent future growth and degradation. The coatings both provide UV light protection, freeze-thaw resistance and an increased lifespan while being water vapour permeable which allows the tiles to breathe and function as intended.
