Moss and Algae Removal

Is Moss and Algae making your home look a bit grim?

If you look at the roof on your home, you will probably see patches of plant life scattered across it.

This will be Moss and Algae build up, both of which can cause problems to your roof directly or indirectly.

Moss is a problem because it absorbs water and will keep the area of contact permanently wet which could cause the roof material to rot.

When Moss and Algae fall of the roof after a heavy rainfall it often falls into the guttering causing them to get blocked. The rainwater will then overflow the gutters causing possible damage to the guttering, fascia boards and the soffits.

If left un-repaired or un-checked, over a period of time the excessive rainwater running down the walls will cause far more serious problems that will become very expensive to repair.

Algae is carried by the wind and will “effect” other nearby house roofing so that a complete area of homes may have algae growth on their roofs.

Although algae doesn’t cause as much damage it does affect the look of the property and can decrease its market value, not good if you are trying to sell your home.

You may think that it would be a good idea to use a hosepipe or pressure hose to clean algae or moss of the roof yourself, however, this is a bad idea, the pressure will cause damage to the tiles and possibly the underlying structure of the property.

If you can see moss and algae on your roof then you need it cleaned as soon as possible.

Free Roof Inspection

Roof inspections are essential to protect your home from whatever the North East weather throws at your Newcastle property and you need to ensure that your roof is always up to standard and watertight.

People tend to get their roof inspected prior to selling their home or after severe weather has hit, but a roof should be inspected every few years at the very least to maintain its integrity and to help prevent other issues and problems that may be caused from water and wind entering your home.

At The Real Roofing Company, we offer free roof inspections and service any and every type of roof. We make sure to look at everything involved in making a roof function properly, including tile condition, gutters, pipes, and the chimney.
