Roof Treatments

Your roof works hard for you. When you think about it your roof is the first line of defense against the elements. It bears the brunt of the hot sun, wind, and rain. It protects the interior of your home or building. So ensuring its longevity is really important, so roof treatments should be on your yearly maintenance list.

Organism Buildup On Your Roof

One of the frequent problems with roof care tends to be the issue of algae, lichen, and moss build-up. We have seen severe cases, where the roof has been neglected for an extended period of time, the build-up has eroded the roofing material. This has caused leaks and resulted in the collapse of the roof.

Unfortunately, this is a more common issue than you might think and it can be easily avoided by regular roof treatments.

The Best Roof Cleaning Method

At YourLocal in most cases, we recommend a roof treatment over a roof blasting clean. Common techniques like high-pressure washing often do more damage than good. Our team uses a specially curated roof treatment that works on any roof type. This method provides long-lasting results that are not harmful to the roofing materials.

Our Roof Treatment Process

Our specially formulated solution removes moss, mould, and lichen from your roofing. We apply this treatment to the affected areas of your roof. This breaks down the moss and mould build up a very short period of time, allowing the natural elements and rain to wash them away.

We are so confident in this method for cleaning your roof, that we offer a money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied.

Our roof treatments also are environmentally friendly thanks to our eco-friendly solution.

Roof Care Is No DIY Job

Another very common issue is that people assume that roof cleaning is a simple job that can be executed by anyone.

Firstly working at heights is best left to the professionals. We are trained and certified to work at heights according to health and safety requirements. We identify the risk factors on any job first so that there are no accidents or falls.

Also, untrained people often miss crucial parts when cleaning, or they view the problem from down on the ground, often not seeing the dangerous patches of buildup that have the potential to eventually cause leaks. Which then forces you to pay for expensive roofing repairs that could have been avoided.

Recommendations From Our Team

Finally, the top recommendation from our teams is that the safest way to go about roof care is to have a professional do it. As illustrated above if you don’t know what you are doing there is always the risk of falling or an accident or missing something vital. If you have someone who knows all of the ins and outs of roof cleaning, the chances of them missing parts that have the potential to cause issues are very slim.
