Roof Cleaning

About our Roof Cleaning services

Just about any roof surface can be cleaned. This includes Tile Roof Cleaning, Terracotta Roof Cleaning, Colorbond Roof Cleaning and Commercial Roof Cleaning . Some roofs cannot be cleaned such as asbestos and thatched roofs.

Having your roof cleaned will not only improve its visual appearance, but can also increase the longevity of the roofing material. We are experts in roof cleaning and understand what works for each roof type. It is not just as simple and getting on a roof with a high pressure cleaner – nobody wants to blast water into their roof.

Before any roof cleaning activity is undertaken by Casey Roof Care, we thoroughly inspect the integrity of the roof. Where you have broken tiles or voids in your bedding and pointing, these need to be addressed first. On a Colorbond or metal roof, care needs to be taken not to blast water under flashing’s and capping. Where your roof has penetrations such as an air conditioner, solar panel, heating and ventilation units, proper care needs to be taken here as voids are generally present in and around the units – not to mention avoiding damaging the units themselves blasting high pressure water where it doesn’t belong.

The reasons why you should consider Casey Roof Care for your Roof Cleaning requirements:
– We use trade qualified roofing professionals for all our roof cleaning – not cowboys
– Our knowledge of cleaning different roofing systems is vast
– We have specialized equipment and processes for each roof type
– Our focus is on doing the job safely while having respect for your building
– We have $20 million in Public Liability Insurance

Roof Cleaning

Over the years a build up of dirt, moss and lichen will occur. How much so depends on the roof product, any coating it may have and the age of the roof. How bad it looks depends on the contrast between the dirt, moss and lichen and the color of the roof. Lightly coloured roofs will show the effects of dirt build up much more than say a black or charcoal coloured roof.

While moss and lichen build up is normal and a little can look appealing to some on say a slate tile roof, a major build up on a terracotta roof could lead to serious roof issues down the line. This is because the moss and lichen as it grows between tiles can crack grout and create voids. This can lead to water penetrating your roof.

Moss and lichen building up on a Colorbond Roofing left for an extended period can cause premature ageing of the Colorbond roof metal. This is because the moss and lichen eats into the bonded paint, damaging the coating and exposing the raw metal to the elements.

Casey Roof Care will assess the condition of your roof thoroughly before commencing any roof cleaning operations and provide you will an assessment detailing our recommendations.
