    Cleaning & Coating The Roof-Tiles of Your Home will Increase the Perceived Value of it!





    Take a look at the before and after images of this property in Dorking.

    We deep cleaned the roof tiles, applied a biocide (to kill of any rhizoids hiding in the tile itself) and then applied our breathable, water-proofing protective coatings, using airless spray equipment in a clear finish.

    In my humble opinion, I think a lot of “perceived” value has been added to this property.

    Roof Cleaning Surrey Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    Compared to London, roof cleaning in Surrey is generally more affordable. 

    However, you should take note that there are several factors that a roof cleaning company should consider in providing you the actual cost of roof cleaning. 

    To calculate the cost, an inspection team will visit your home to look at the condition of your roof. This is a good opportunity to ask about the factors affecting the roof cleaning quote. 

    One factor that is always taken into account is the condition and the size of your roof. 

    A 2-bedroom home with roof tiles installed in the last five years is generally cheaper compared to a much larger, detached property with roof tiles that haven’t been cleaned for 10 years or more. 

    In addition, if your roof has heavy growth of moss and algae, then the roof cleaning company will calculate the time it will take them to eliminate the dirt. Manual scraping takes more time compared to power washing. 

    The best way to obtain the cost of roof cleaning for your home in Surrey is to request a free informative quotation from a reputable roof and driveway cleaning company. 

    The most common chemicals used for cleaning roofs include bleach or sodium percarbonate solution. We do not use any of these – these are for the DIY brigade! 

    However, this is risky because it may cause damage to the roof and to your health if you fail to prepare the right solution. 

    Therefore, it’s best to hire a professional cleaning company to do the job. 

    Even then, you should choose to hire a company who uses environmentally-safe cleaning products that are effective and safe. We certainly do.

    Before you even begin cleaning your roof, you should climb up to assess the condition. You need to know what kind of outgrowths are present in your roof such as moss, algae or lichen. 

    Then you need to see if your guttering is clogged with moss, leaves and twigs. 

    If you think you can do the job yourself, then you have to purchase tools such as power cleaners and manual scrapers. 

    You also need to buy chemicals and prepare the solution yourself.

    And don’t forget to buy a safety harness to make sure that you will be safe while cleaning a slippery roof. 

    Prepare to spend at least 3 whole days from sun up to sun down, because roof cleaning is not an easy job. 

    Doing the job yourself will cost you hundreds of pounds, and this doesn’t include the time you’ll be spending on preparations, shopping for tools and chemicals, actual cleaning, then tidying up. 

    Why spend so much time and money if you can just entrust the job to professionals? 

    It is time to clean your roof if you see the following signs: 

    Obvious Moss Infestation 

    Moss grow fast on roofs, especially if you are residing in a temperate climate like Surrey, with its abundance of trees and other foliage. 

    Aside from looking tired and neglected, moss, overtime, will “eat away” at the the roof tiles and shorten their useful lifespan. 

    Moss infested tiles absorb water on the roof tiles surface. The freeze and thaw cycle of winter, will eventually start to weaken the tiles and will quite possibly fracture and split them.

    Tired Look 

    Can you still recognise the original colour of your roof? If all you see is dull grey or black, then chances are your roof is filled with moss, dirt and grime. 

    This ‘tired’ look can be really uninviting and significantly reduces your home’s kerb appeal. 

    Too many leaves and moss 

    Clogged gutters are the most common cause of water ingress into a home. The first you will be aware of it, is quite possibly damp patches appearing on your interior walls.
