It is essential that when we insulate your roof, and you invest into a new insulation, that it will be protected from adverse weather and any displaced tiles in the roof that could cause a leak, we make this our highest priority because if your roof isn't water tight you run the risk of damp problems, damaging insulation and more importantly rotting of wood in worse cases.
some roofs are so covered in moss, algae, lichen that we can’t even see if the roof tiles are broken or displaced this means that to carry out are work to the best standard we may need to clean areas of you roof to insure to get a better visual of the led flashing, tiles, cement mortar to check it's all in good condition, and if work repairs need to be made we will carry out this work with our own roofing specialist team to prepare your loft to be a safe dry environment for the insulation to be installed.
Please talk to our representative, if your order exceeds a certain amount we can normally carry out small external roofing works at no added cost to you
Understanding moss, algae and lichen growth…
The growth of moss and algae is most prolific in areas of shade and damp, typically they are more commonly seen on roof surfaces that are north facing or where trees provide shading. The problem is also worse where roof tiles have partly-porous surfaces, more typical of ageing concrete tiles, this is why you tend to see more moss growth on older roofs.
Moss and algae growth is widespread in the UK due to our naturally damp and cooler climatic conditions. It is estimated that over 1 million homes have significant problems with moss and algae growth. YOURS could be one of them.
