Roof cleaning and applying a protective roof coating is becoming more popular among homeowners in the UK. Roof coatings are applied to prolong the lifespan of the roof and to enhance the look of the home in general. We provide roof cleaning and roof coating in Telford, Shrewsbury and throughout Shropshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire.
The biggest enemies of any roof are moss and algae. These cause:
- Increased stress on roof structures
- Roots of moss can cause hairline cracks to appear on the roof tile and allow water and frost to penetrate
- Lifting of roof tiles
- Water Retention, wet moss is very heavy
- Blocked Gutters
- Colour loss from UV rays
- Roof looks unsightly

General Schedule of Work
- Before any work is undertaken, a full roof survey including any risk assessment implications is always carried out. All of our quotations are confirmed in writing.
- To minimise any mess created whilst we are cleaning, all walls and neighbouring properties are protected and downpipes detached.
- Cleaning is carried out using professional cleaning equipment; once complete, your property is left clean and tidy.
- Once your roof is dry, any necessary repairs to the roof tiles and mortar are carried out.
- Prior to carrying out the roof coating, a potent anti-fungicide is applied to kill off any moss or algae spores.
- Two coats of ClimaShield roof coating are then applied, allowing drying time between coats. This will protect your roof and keep it looking good for years to come.
Roof cleaning can extend the life of your roof by removing moss and algae that weaken the tiles.
Roof coating can improve the appearance of your roof as well as helping to protect it from damage.
