Why have it cleaned?
A really serious accumulation of moss and algae on your roof and other organic growth is likely to cause you serious issues with your roof and the life-span of the tiles will eventually be affected too. If you overlook your roof, you’ll find these organic growths will swiftly grow uncontrollably with their roots creeping their way into weak spots in the roof tiles, gradually widening them over time until cracks become visible. Like all living organisms they need water to survive, and once it has rained, they’ll behave like a sponge retaining as much water as possible. As it works its way through the cracks into your roof it could cause serious and expensive destruction to the rafters and joists. Lastly you could well find moss that has dislodged and rolled down the roof into your gutter which can result in overflowing rainwater from your gutter which saturates and damages your fascia boards. In truth, arranging to have a roof cleaned is a necessary service for a number of reasons.
