Moss removal treatments
Moss and Lichen can take up residence on your tiles and contrary to the misguided information out there it does not harm the tiles. Yes it can cause leaks if very heavy. We provide an environmentally friendly Moss Removal treatment to freshen up your roof appearance in general. It is non-acidic and while it kills the moss and lichen straight away it can take anywhere from 3 to 12 months for mother nature to remove it.
Painting / Sealing Clay Tiles
This is not recommended. Because they have been fired it is total unnecessary as we are yet to see a clay tile that leaks due to it turning porus. All paints will peel eventually leaving you with a roof that’s highly unattractive and can take years of life off your roof.
Painting / Sealing Concrete Tiles
These can be coloured to give a fresh appearance. This will only benefit the look of the roof it will not stop a porus roof from leaking. In some cases it can trap water on the ridges if it is not sealed properly and cause further leaks. some painters even break more tiles than they replace. Be very careful who you use ask for references. It is worth noting that there can sometimes be little or no difference between the cost of a new roof and having it repainted.
