Cement Tile Roof Cleaning
Why Clean your Concrete Tiles Roof?
1. Improve the look.
2. Prevent roof leaks
3. Protect your tiles & their coating
Our customers generally come to us with two reasons for concrete tile roof cleaning. Some are concerned with the aesthetics of their home, they’ve noticed the moss and aren’t keen on the way it looks. Others have had an issue with leaks. When moss builds up in the spaces between the tiles and at the edges of the tiles, water can become blocked from its intended draining pattern, causing back flow into the roof, resulting in leaks. The other thing the moss & algae will do is eat away at the tile coating, which results in loss of colour.
When we clean a concrete tile roof, we want to make sure of three things.
1. Your roof looks like new.
2. No damage occurs.
3. We completely disinfect the roof.
We clean concrete tile roofs by manually removing the bulk of the moss with tools, and treating the roots with solution that will completely disinfect the roof. Concrete tiles are very porous, and moss roots and spore can become deeply embedded. This is why a surface clean is not sufficient, and will have you re-cleaning your roof twice as often.
Why you SHOULDN’T pressure wash your roof.
1. Pressure Cracks.
2. Remove the seal (the seal is what gives the tiles their colour)
3. Water pushed up into the roof.
4. Pressure washing provides only a surface clean.
