Roof Sealing & Waterproofing

Why do I need my roof cleaned?

Having your roof cleaned not only improves the look of your property but it also can help protect the roof from long-term damage. Moss & algae can prevent moisture escaping from behind the roof, leaving it sitting on the roof membrane. This excess moisture can affect the roofing membrane and also lead to increased condensation within your attic, which could cause damp spots on your ceilings or walls.

Protecting the roof membrane and insulation is important for improving the life span of your roof and reducing the risk of damage to these important components.

If not protected it could lead to costly repairs such as requiring a new roof installed on your property.

What is a Roof Coating?

A roof coating is a protective layer applied to your roof that helps prevent against moss & algae growth as well as helping prevent leaks in your roof.

Waterproof roof coatings protect against small leaks that aren’t always visible to humans, which helps protect against future damage to your property.

At RoofTek we use an acrylic-based roof coating that is formulated to help fill gaps in your roof. This coating can be applied to both pitched and flat roofs and seals the gaps between tiles, slates, flashings and gutters.

The roof coating adds an extra layer of protection against the elements including rain, snow, ice and UV Exposure. It can also help reduce the change of slates or tiles being moved in high-winds.

How much does a roof coating cost?

There are many different factors that determine the cost of a full roof clean and protective roof coating.

Firstly, the size of your property. If you live in a large property your roof is going to be bigger than average size, meaning that more product and time will be required to protect your roof. Another factor will be the ability to access the properties roof. If you live in a detached 2 story house we would be able to access the roof with ease. If your property is a 3 story terrace, accessing the roof would be more difficult and may require scaffolding.

Repairs and preparation are also important aspects to consider when looking at the cost of a roof coating. Often we will find that when assessing a roof there are small issues that need fixing such as slipped tiles & slates, cracked tiles, damaged flashings or gutters. Along with roof cleaning & coating, we also offer a range of comprehensive roofing services.

If there are any repairs that need fixing we will happily give you a competitive quote to rectify the issues before any roof cleaning or coating commences.

Moss Removal & Waterproofing

What is Moss Removal?

Moss removal is an essential part of roof cleaning. Many roofs have a build-up of moss throughout its life. This is due to increased moisture and debris such as leaves collecting on the roof. Moss is not dangerous when on your roof but it can lead to issues with your roof such as moisture build-up in your attic and damage to the roofing membrane.

Removing moss from your roof is a job that you can do yourself, but if you are to clean the moss off your roof please make sure you do this carefully. Moss build us can cause your roof to be slippy and difficult to navigate. That is why it is recommended that you use a professional roof cleaning service.

Is Roof Paint Waterproof?

Roof paint, Roof Seals and Roof Coatings are all very similar. When painting a properties roof the paint used is typically a colour acrylic roof coating or seal. The roof seal forms a waterproof barrier on your roof and seals small gaps or leaks that you may have in your roof.

This will allow water to run down the roof rather than draining into small holes in your roof, improving the drainage and making your roof more waterproof.
