Don’t let your cracked tiles cause problems

Broken and cracked tiles are a common sight on roofs throughout the UK. The main issue with this is that when your tiles are cracked or have slipped apart from each other and created gaps, rainwater will be able to find its way inside the breach. When moisture finds its way into your home, you may experience a host of problems, some of which are much more serious than others.

The most immediate danger is water damage to your loft or attic area and the possessions you have stored there, including structural damage to the interior ceiling, rafters, joists and wall frames. The water may be able to access the rest of the house and cause even more issues, including peeling paint and plaster, bubbling wallpaper and damage to electrical equipment and wiring, which is not only frustrating but could also cause a fire hazard. Your property will also be susceptible to mould and mildew, which is difficult to get rid of and can be harmful to human health.

Cracked and broken roof tiles can be caused by many different potential factors, such as heavy storms and harsh weather conditions, people climbing on the roof to carry out installations and repairs, natural wear and tear or even overly harsh roof cleaning. Thankfully, when you are working with our team of talented Surrey roof cleaners, you will never have to worry about your tiles getting broken.

We understand the importance of preserving your roof tiles and slates by using gentle, careful and non-abrasive cleaning methods. We avoid jet washing, as this can be damaging to tiles and encourage the growth of moss and algae. Instead, we carry out manual cleaning, which is gentle on your tiles and provides superior cleaning results. Our thorough service will reveal the original colours of your roof tiles and get them back to their best while simultaneously protecting them from damage.
