IBroken roof tilesf you are looking to sell your home, or even just have it valued, you want it to look its best. Your roof is like a hairstyle for your home – clean and well-kept or neglected and dirty. Keeping your roof surface clean and free of debris is essential to not only maintain the quality of your roof but to preserve the appeal and add value to your home.

Structural Damage

Moss and mould not only looks unsightly but can damage the structural integrity of any type of roof material. Or even worse hide issues that if fixed quickly will be a minor inconvenience yet if left could turn into a very costly fix. Moss commonly thrives in damp and shady environments, establishing its roots on the surface and starting the degradation of your home. Moss can lift tiles, resulting in holes and leaks into your home and constant moisture results in bacteria and mould growth.

Structural issues may not be obvious to buyers or property appraisers at face value but a poor inspection report due to faults in the roof material can cost you in emergency repairs or even losing a sale.
