Roof cleaning and protection solutions for the 21st Century

Have your roof cleaned and treated - prevention is better than cure.

Protection Process

Step 1.

Initial cleaning of the roof. Careful manual extraction of moss with scrapers and brushes - no pressure washers are used by our company. Roofing experts warn that when cleaning the roof with a pressure washer, the force can damage the roof tiles and loosen mortar thus making it prone to leaking and also pressure washers make the tiles  very porous, enabling moss sores to develop and take hold. Our process is therefore much kinder to your roof and your pocket!

We make sure to clear out the gutters of all moss debris at the end of this step. Did you know we also offer a gutter clearing service?

Step 2.

The roof is treated with a moss repellent solution which is applied manually by sprayer. This step is optional, and is not always essential, although it is recommended as this kills the moss spores. 

Step 3. 

Copper strips are fitted on the roof ridge by A2 corrosion resistant stainless steel screws. Rainwater, mixed with the oxygen in the air, produces copper salts which are released from the strip onto the roof, reducing moss growth. 

The copper strip may need to take time to establish itself - for the sulphate to protect the roof. This will depend on the type of roof and the weather conditions. Some signs of moss may still be evident before the copper prevention is fully effective.

All moss gone

A very thorough job carried out by two hard-working, polite and friendly guys.
Our very mossy roof now looks almost as good as the day it was built.
All done in just two days and now we wait and see if the copper strip does its job - the theory's good so fingers crossed!!

A job well done

After suffering with moss on the roof for years, I decided to do something about it. Coppertop came and assessed the problem, gave me a price to clean the roof and another to clean and protect with copper strip. I decided to go with the combined quote. They came and quickly sorted the roof and sprayed it. Next day they finished off and installed the copper strip, cleaned the gutters and removed all the moss. I was very impressed with work and would recommend the company. I am now looking forward to a clean roof for the foreseeable future.
