Moss Removal for Roofs

It is very important that any areas of your roof that are developing moss or algae are treated as soon as possible. Pristine Coatings provides professional roof cleaning services to eradicate moss on roofs, alongside the application of coatings to prevent moss from regrowing on your roof.

Moss on roofs can cause a number of very serious problems to homes and business premises, including dilapidation, wood rot and obstruction of guttering for drainage purposes

The Dangers of Moss

If you have any problems with moss growing on your roof, you could experience any or all of the following problems:

  1. Damp and moisture penetrating beneath tiling and causing structural wood elements of your roof to rot. This is because moss is very like a sponge in that it absorbs and retains water and damp, so your roof will be continually wet.
  2. Roof damage due to heavy, water-soaked moss as high levels of moss soak up the water that’s running off your pitched roofing when it rains, leading to the sort of problems detailed above.
  3. Moss attracts birds and insects to your property, and they could cause additional structural damage or other problems. Birds will break up moss and it could be dislodged into gutters or pipes and cause blockages.
  4. High levels of moss on your roof may eventually start to break off and block your gutters or downpipes – this can lead to blocked drains which will require clearing.

Pristine Coatings are professionals in dealing with these problems and can entirely clean moss away from roofing. Our specialist coatings provide a watertight seal that prevents any regrowth of moss.
