a friend suggested i get my roof cleaned as it's looking a bit
Does anyone have an opinion on this?ie; is it a good idea?,will it
add any value to the property?does anyone know how much it costs?.
Thanks for any feedback.Regards
I don't think you're going to get much help unless you tell people a bit
ie: My roof is flat/pitched/etc and made of thatch/slate/concrete
tile/corrugated iron/asbestos sheet/etc and by grubby I mean..
Sloping with red tiles.
When i say grubby,i mean there's a bit of Moss gathered on it in it's 40
years.The colour of the tiles has also been washed out over the years.
Some of my neighbours have had new roofs,but mine is solid so i'm not going
down that road for cosmetic reasons.Regards.
I would leave well alone. If the moss was excessive and causing blocked
gutters and downpipes that needed frequent unblocking then it MIGHT be worth
doing something about it. The problem would be finding a reputable firm that
wouldn't rip you off or damage your roof.
Fellow near us had his roof pressure washed. He had Marley type concrete
tiles and the pressure washing removed much of the coloured coating from
them with the consequence that his roof now has a Mediterranean
"sun-bleached appearance totally out of kilter with his neighbours roofs. I
don't know if there has been any effect on the impermeability of the tiles
or of their ability to shed water but it looks a real pig's ear to me.
