At Diamond Shine we strive to 'be the best' when it comes to cleaning and restoring your roof in Cheltenham. Our roof cleaning is carried out using specialist professional pressure cleaning and low pressure soft washing equipment. This means that the roof tiles will be fully deep cleaned in the minimum time possible with little disturbance to you or you neighbours.

The roof cleaning process will remove all moss, algae, lichen and any other dirt residue that has contaminated your roof over time. Throughout the roof cleaning process, we will make sure that downpipes and gutters are fully cleaned out and left clear of any residue from the roof. Once your roof has been cleaned, the walls, windows and perimeter of your home will be rinsed down and left in the same condition it was prior to the work commencing.

The Roof Cleaning process:

  • Prepare site - For some jobs we may need to erect scaffolding

  • Professional pressure washing (Or low pressure ‘bio’ washing – see below)

  • Replace any cracked or broken roof tiles

  • Re-point any broken mortar joints

  • Apply an anti-fungal solution to the roof

  • Clean all gutters and facias

  • Apply first coat of roof coating (if required)

  • Apply second coat of roof coating to seal (if required)

  • Tidy site and remove all waste.

There are 2 different methods to cleaning a roof in Cheltenham. The more common and popular way is to pressure wash the roof as it gives a much better, all over even finish and removes all dirt, moss and lichens (white spots) quickly and effectively. The second way is by ‘soft washing’ or ‘bio washing’ the roof. This is done by manually scraping off all the moss by hand followed by spraying a chemical on the roof at low pressure similar, to that of your garden hose. This chemical will kill off the spores and clean the dirt off the tiles.

Both options have pros and cons and if you are thinking of having your roof cleaned it’s probably best to give us a call and we can come and meet you at the property and take a look. Once we see the roof we can give you a much more in depth explanation about the two different ways to go about the it and advise you on which is best for your particular roof.
