Moss Removal Services Glasgow

When the moss cover is light then it isn’t much of an issue.

However when moss appears on your roof, it will eventually spread and the coverage will become thicker. That’s the point where you need to think seriously about having it removed. Moss can damage roof tiles – as it grows it can get underneath, pushing the tiles up and threatening the roof’s integrity.

Water can get into the gaps. Longer term, moss can start to degrade the roof tiles: it’s the natural predator of stone, after all. If that’s not reason enough, it does look rather untidy.

Moss Removal Techniques

When removing moss from your roof, we will never use power-hosing. Using such a violent method on your roof can damage the tiles and you should be wary of any company that recommends this. Power-hosing will impact the lifespan of your tiles as it removes their surface.

We’ll manually remove the moss using wire brushes after an examination of each tile. It’s completely effective for removing moss and won’t damage the roof.

How to Keep the Moss Away?

After cleaning the moss from your roof, we’ll then apply a safe but powerful bio-fungicide to ensure that any moss, algae and lichen will be killed. This helps ensure that your roof will stay clean.

Optionally, we can install a copper ridge onto your roof, providing a long-term solution to guard against moss. Over time, this will release a moss-repelling compound. It looks nice too.
