SO, YOU MIGHT BE THINKING WHY CLEAN MY ROOF?
If roof moss, algae and dirt are left on roof tiles, it can have a number of negative impacts. Moss absorbs moisture easily, which not only adds weight to the roof, putting it under stress but can also result in moisture entering the roof space. Roof tiles cannot dry in the sun, as the moss, dirt and Lichen act as a protective barrier, keeping the tiles moist, which can lead to moisture soaking through into the roof. This can and will damage integral parts of the roofing structure, causing timber rafters to rot, which leads to long-term damage. Additionally, moisture can cause cracked roof tiles leading to further problems.
DAMAGE TO ROOFING STRUCTURE...
Roof tiles made from clay or concrete are particularly susceptible to moss growth. This is because their porous surfaces and frequent exposure to rain and damp conditions make them the perfect environment for moss to root down and spread very effectively. This means that it often grows on the bond that joins ridge tiles, apex tiles and the roof. Growing up in these places can cause significant damage, agitating and breaking bonds that are key to the structure of the roof.
The presence of moss, algae or dirt on your roof tiles can also result in blockages to your gutters The build-up of moss and other materials can block the guttering that runs along the tiled roof, causing water to run down the sides of the building, which can lead to efflorescence staining on brickwork, but also result in damp and black mould within the walls of the property, which can be expensive to fix.

Roof Moss Removal
The work was carried out expertly in a professional manner, and despite a huge amount of moss and dirt being dropped onto the temporary ground cover sheets, the paving round the house was left in an exemplary state.
Removal Of Moss Off Roof And Spray Treatment
Picked up this company off previous reviews, they were not wrong. Overall experience was fantastic. Alan came to quote, explained what would be done and then followed up with a competitive price. Two of his guys arrived on time on the date for the work and did everything Alan said they would. Attention to cleaning up what is a messy job was fantastic and the roof looks brilliant. No hesitation in recommending A&R.
I really am glad I hired A&R to clean the roof of my new (old) house. They were all incredibly polite, on time and very thorough in doing the clean and they kept me updated throughout. Within an hour of their guys leaving, I had 2 neighbours come up to me and say how great the roof looks now that it has been cleaned, so for me that's the biggest compliment! It was great that their guys took the extra time to clean up the mess generated and wipe down the windows and they also made sure I was totally happy before leaving. 👍
I have nothing but praise for A&R as a company, and for everyone within the business with whom I had any contact. Alan (the A in A&R) arrived on time to talk me through the options, the process and a schedule. Other companies that I contacted simply priced the roof cleaning using google earth. A&R was not the cheapest, but neither was it anywhere near the most expensive. The team arrived on time, was very friendly and the work was carried out to a high standard in slightly less than the estimated scheduled time. If you need roof or gutter maintenance, I wholeheartedly recommend A&R.
