Some of the not-so-obvious factors that contribute to roofs getting dirty are “fallout” from jumbo jets (ask anyone who lives under a flight path how much more often they have to wash their cars), and the most common is mould and lichen growth.What most often appears to be dirt on a roof is, in fact, largely mould and lichen growth. This is especially the case with tiled roofs. Both concrete tiles, and terracotta tiles are a haven for the growth of unsightly mould. This is because, compared with a metal roof, they have a rougher surface.

The Basics of Slate Roofing Maintenance Slate Tile Roofing is a time honoured trade and one requiring a very unique skill set. It is highly recommended that slate roofs never be walked on by any other than licensed professional slaters. Unless one intimately understands a slate roof, walking upon them can cause slate cracking and breakages leading to roof leaks.
As your roof gets older, you may experience one or more of these common problems: Leaks and moisture Cracked or broken tiles and capping Mould Blocked gutters and down pipes Regular roof maintenance is the key to prolonging the life of your roof and preventing major repairs in the future.
A roof inspection is a way of determining the level of wear and tear on a roof, how much life it has left in it, and if there is a need for repair currently or soon in the future. Roof inspections involve looking for signs that indicate the wear on shingles and other roofing materials. A roof inspector does not need to remove any part of your roof. They are trained to correctly assess the lifespan of the roof visually.
A roof inspection also involves looking at your chimney and the flashing that surrounds it to assess the level of wear, examining gutters, downspouts, and anything else that attaches to the roof.
