Roof Valeting in Plymouth

Roof valeting
Why does my roof need cleaning?

Lots of people in the private sector and the commercial sector now regularly have their roof cleaned. It’s not a vanity thing, however, it does improve the aesthetic look of the building, but the main reason is to clear the roof from unwanted and unnecessary vegetation growth such as algae, moss and lichens.

Ultimately if left it can eventually have a detrimental affect on your roof such as:
  • A build up of growth can absorb & retain a lot of water leading to your roof supporting a lot of unnecessary weight. (Approximately 1 tonne per cubic meter)
  • Unnecessary stress to the roof leading to damp roofing battens and roofing timbers subject to an increased weight load will ultimately warp, twist and buckle
  • Constantly wet roofing tiles will let water in eventually as they become porous
  • Damp wet sand and cement will crack and crumble
  • All roofing timbers and roofing battens will deteriorate and rot
  • Wet tiles crack and split when a frost hits
  • Ridge, hip, bonnet and roof tiles can move and be displaced
  • All of the above results in damp penetration where further issues will occur if left

Is like with most things in life, if you fail to maintain something so when it eventually goes wrong it will cost you a lot more to put right. I can explain this with one of my own personal experiences. Not to long ago I had to book one of our vans in to have the cam belt changed as part of its service maintenance plan. I left it and kept putting it off, as I needed to use the van. Then one day while driving it the cam belt snapped and the engine was ruined. It cost me £1500 to rebuild it where a cam belt change now overdue in its scheduled maintenance plan would have only cost £200 meaning I would have saved £1300. Silly me, and boy did I learn a valuable lesson.

Roof valeting

Well it’s the same scenario regarding your roof if you just put it off and ignore it. Prevention is better than the cure. If you leave a roof with a lot of moss and algae growth on you are asking for trouble. Not only will it prematurely degrade you roof coverings halving its lifespan but may also invalidate any guarantee you have that still may have significant years on it to run. It can cause damp penetration, which can lead to dry rot or wet rot setting in and beetle infestation. You need to ask yourself, 'is it really worth it?'

Over time moss and algae can build over your tiled roof. This moss and algae can lead to a deterioration of your tiles. Acorn Roofing Solutions (ARS) provide a service where a specialist team will come to your property to valet your roof. Our team will remove the moss and algae and will also inspect the tiles and pointing, making repairs where necessary, thus aiding your roof to last longer before a whole roof replacement is needed. At the same time our team will also clean all your guttering and fascia’s to leave you with a roof that looks as good as new.
