Roof Cleaning Newstead Village provides a full roof cleaning service for home and business premises in Newstead Village and surrounding towns and villages in Nottinghamshire. Having your roof cleaned can be a quick way to improve the look of your property, by getting rid of dirt, moss, lichen and more that has accumulated on your roof.
As a roof becomes older and become more porous, many become affected by moss, algae and dirt. Keeping your roof clean and without moss and algae is often quite difficult for many owners and may become a source of issues.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have your roof look brand new again?
Why do it?
Large amounts of build-up of moss, dirt on roof tiles and other natural growth could well cause major problems with your roof and the life-span of the tiles will eventually be compromised too. If you neglect your roof, you’ll find these organic growths will quickly spread out of control with their roots finding their way into weaknesses in the roof tiles, progressively widening them over time until cracks become visible. Like all plants they need water to survive, and after it rains, they’ll work like a sponge holding as much water as they possibly can. Once it finds its way through the cracks within your roof it might well cause serious and costly deterioration to the rafters and joists. Also you could well find moss that has dislodged and rolled down the roof finding itself in your gutter which can result in overflowing rainwater from your gutter which saturates and damages your fascia’s. In conclusion, getting your roof cleaned is a necessary service for a number of reasons.
For many people though getting their roof cleaned is entirely an aesthetic decision and we can’t blame you for that! Roofs can become very unsightly because of organic growths like moss and lichen, and then a roof cleaning service is necessary. Roofs are also periodically discoloured and stained by a common place bacterium called gloeocapsa magma affecting the general appearance of your otherwise charming house. By all means, this bacteria growth is completely normal however it isn’t pleasant to look at and it can over time damage your roof. Comparing a clean roof and one that hasn’t been cleaned can be night and day. After months and years of watching your roof get dirtier and dirtier wouldn’t it be brilliant to see it looking as good as new again?
Maybe you’re wondering, “Is this a simple DIY job that I should attempt to do myself?” Let’s consider some evidence to propose what the best possible solution is here.
Should I just do this myself?
The biggest reason why most people don’t clean their own roof is since it requires working at a height where many of us wouldn’t feel safe or comfortable. At these kinds of heights any kind of tumble can result in a very serious injury.
Many rogue tradespeople who attempt this kind of work, think it is easy money or that it doesn’t need much skill. How true is that? A service like this requires a level of skill and attention that we can provide. Using the appropriate roof access equipment, the right tools and our skill and understanding we can provide for you a roof cleaning service that you are happy with without you needing to put yourself at needless risk.
How is it done?
We will survey your roof carefully before starting any work, to establish the best course of action depending on your roof. Then we will assess what’s growing there and the how best to dislodge the growth. Then we can start to work on eradicating the roof of organic colonising growths by getting right into the root system of the moss and eliminating the spores. You’ll notice an immediate improvement and continued change as time passes.
Some factors to consider.

- Size of dwelling and the size of the roof.
- How much vegetation is present on the roof.
- Type of roof – e.g. in the case of a thatched roof, no water is involved.
