Roof Cleaning & Sealing in Cumbria
A clean roof not only improves the look of your home, but it also gets rid of any accumulated moss and lichen that can cause damage to the structure of the roof in the long term. It is a quick and easy process and we can soon have your roof looking as good as new.
The use of high powered jet washes is not recommended as it can damage the surface of the slate or tile, thus reducing its expected life considerably. With regards to roof moss, they claim that: We DO NOT recommend pressure washing your roof covering. At Cumberland Roofing we use moss and algae killing detergents and all of our roofs are cleaned by hand to prevent damage.
The most common roof tiles in the United Kingdom are made from concrete and have a sandy/granular finish on the exposed side of the tile. This part of the tile is designed to gradually wear off until the tile needs to be replaced, usually after 80-100 years of normal weathering. Using a high powered pressure washer may strip the surface of the tile and shorten its life expectancy.
