St James Roof Cleaning Services
Over the years a build-up of dirt, moss and lichen will occur. How much so depends on the roof material, any coating it may have and the age of the roof. How bad it looks depends on the contrast between the dirt, moss and lichen and the colour of the roof. Lightly coloured roofs can show the effects of dirt build up much more than say a black or charcoal coloured roof.
While moss and lichen build up is normal and a little can look appealing to some on a slate tile roof, a major build up on a terracotta tiled roof in St James could lead to some issues such as Chemical Delignification, Roof tile deterioration and roof leaks, as the moss and lichen can grow between tiles and over the bedding and pointing which can lead to cracking. This can create voids which in an extreme case can lead to water and rodents penetrating your roof and ridge capping tiles coming away.
Lichen and mould building up on a Colorbond roof that is not cleaned for long periods can cause premature ageing of the metals surface. This is because the moss and lichen can eat into the bonded paint, damaging the coating and leaving marks. Once the lichen has taken hold, stains from where it bonded to the roof will remain after roof cleaning St James. Therefore, it is important to have your roof cleaned when you see mossy cauliflowers forming on the surface.

Before any roof cleaning activity is undertaken by Powerdrive Roofing, we thoroughly inspect the integrity of the roof and the underlying structure. Where you have broken roof tiles or voids in your bedding and pointing, these will need to be addressed first. On any roof especially a Colorbond or steel roof, care needs to be taken not to push excess water under flashing’s or ridge capping. Where your roof has external penetrations such as an air conditioning, solar panel installations and ventilation units, special care needs to be taken as voids are generally located in and around the units –avoiding damaging the units themselves also by blasting water under high pressure where it doesn’t belong.
