Tile Roofs are quite popular in and around Vancouver.

Replacing a Tile Roof is extremely expensive, so depending on the age and condition of your roof this maybe be a good alternative to replacing it.

Roof Cleaning, Moss Removal and Moss Treatment Information for Different Types of Roofs
Remove Moss & Algae from all roof sections to add longevity to your roof. Moss and algae will deteriorate most types of roofing materials over time if not maintained on a regular basis. Recently, insurance companies have started to void home insurance if the roof has moderate-heavy moss growth.
Demossing your roof is extremely important in keeping the roof in good condition. If moss is allowed to buildup on your roof, it will eventually damage the roofing materials and will result in expensive repairs or replacement of your roof.
Remove all debris including dead foliage such as leaves, twigs, branches, pine needles and other organic growth from the roof. Dead roofing debris can affect the water runoff and drainage, so it is best to have your roof and gutters cleaned once every year or more if you have large trees surrounding your home.
Eco-Friendly Moss Treatment & Warranty for All Types of Roofs
To stop moss and algae from damaging your roof, we apply our eco-friendly Moss & Algae Roof Treatment to all roof sections after the roof cleaning and moss removal has been completed. Applying this moss treatment will remove the current moss on your roof and will dramatically slow any regrowth of any moss on your roof for years to come.
Our Organic, Hydrogen Peroxide based Moss & Algae Treatment is Chlorine & Bleach-Free and will safely kill all moss and algae on your roof. It is safe around all plants and vegetation and will not stain or discolor any surfaces. Our Moss & Algae Treatment is safe on all types of roofs and comes with a 2 Year Moss-Free Warranty
*All Roof Cleaning, Moss Removal and Roof Restoration Services include the Application of Moss Treatment to the entire roof.
WE DO NOT USE CHLORINE BLEACH/SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE DUE TO ITS TOXIC & DAMAGING EFFECTS ON VEGETATION & MARINE LIFE
Roof Cleaning & Moss Removal for Asphalt Roofs
Removing moss from asphalt shingles is crucial in preventing further granular loss. In time, moss will grow and become ingrained within the protective granular coating of the shingle. If left neglected even longer, moss will start to grow under and lift the shingle, resulting in damage and costly repairs.
Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material used in Vancouver and the lower mainland. It is crucial that moss does not get ingrained in the shingle as removing the moss will result in possible shingle damage if completed by an inexperienced roof technician.
Power Washing or Soft Washing asphalt shingle roofs should always be AVOIDED at all costs.
Roof Cleaning & Moss Removal for Durroid Shingles & Fiberglass Laminate Roofs
Durroid Shingles are very similar to asphalt shingles as they both have a rubber matting used as the base material of the shingle with granules on top protecting it from UV rays and other weather elements. These roofs should be cleaned in the same manner as Asphalt roofs
Much like Asphalt Shingles, Durroid is also manufactured basically the same, however it is no longer available as new roofing materials such as Fiberglass Laminate shingles have replaced it. To maintain a clean roof, a light brushing and application of our hydrogen-peroxide based moss treatment will kill and remove the moss and black staining from your roof.
Remember, Asphalt, Durroid and Fiberglass Laminate Shingles should NEVER be power washed as it will cause significant granular loss to the shingle.
Cedar Roof Cleaning & Moss Removal, and Cedar Roof Restoration
Depending on the age and condition of your cedar roof, it may have:
1) Rotting cedar shakes or shingles due to moss, algae and other organic material.
2) Dried out and warped shingles from sun damage.
Both can often leave aged cedar shakes and shingles extremely brittle and weak.
Cedar Roofs are installed by having a row of cedar shakes fastened down followed by another row of staggered cedar shakes on top of it. Think of it like a brick wall, bricks are not laid directly above each other; rather they are staggered so that the wall has more structural integrity. With that said, cedar roofs still offer numerous areas for moss and algae to thrive in.
The space in between each cedar shake or shingle (called a Keyway) offers moss and algae a perfect breeding ground. Other areas that can be problematic can be the overgrowth of moss on the butt end of the shakes and in some cases underneath the cedar shake. If moss is found underneath your cedar shakes or shingles you should try not to walk on the roof as moss grows outwards, creating unevenness in the shakes that may lead to splitting and cracking of the cedar shakes when walked on. If this is the case we have specialized equipment that will allow us to treat your roof without ever setting foot on it, ensuring no roof damage occurs.
Option 1: Cedar Roof Cleaning & Moss Removal, the process is to remove the moss with a light brushing followed by the application of our Moss Treatment.
Option 2: Cedar Roof Restoration includes roof repair, moss treatment, soft wash of the entire roof and application of our Cedar Shake Protector which will leave your cedar roof looking brand new.
Cedar Shingles and shakes are widely used in West Vancouver and South Surrey. Cedar is a premium roofing material, but if left neglected, dead foliage can break down and get packed within the keyways. The "Keyways" is the space in between the shingles and must be free and clear for proper drainage
Tile Roof Cleaning & Moss Removal, and Tile Roof Restoration
Tile roofs can be found everywhere throughout Vancouver and the Fraser Valley as it is a durable product that lasts for years-if properly maintained that is. The problem is that many of these roofs have moss buildup due to the climate we live in. Roof cleaning and moss removal should be done every year or two to minimize any organic growth such as moss that may be growing under loose roof debris such as dead leaves and pine needles etc. However, if you notice a fair bit of moss up on the roof and you haven’t had it cleaned or treated with a moss inhibitor in the last 3-5 years, then you the homeowner should not attempt to walk on it, nor should anyone else UNLESS they are an experienced roofer.
Remember, most companies out there offering roof cleaning and moss removal services have inexperienced, seasonal employees that do not have the knowledge and know-how to properly service and maintain a roof-let alone a tile roof. The reason I say that is because tile roofs offer some of the best breeding ground for moss growth since it is installed as a layered product which in turn leaves gaps/areas where moss can get up under the tile and grow, resulting in shifting tiles. If this is the case any inexperienced seasonal employee or exterior cleaning contractor who walks on the roof may end up cracking tiles resulting in water leaks.
Once our Tile Roof Technicians have removed the bulk of the moss on the roof, they will apply our organic, Hydrogen-Peroxide based Moss Treatment, that when applied will kill and shrink all moss growth on your entire roof. We can also apply this product most times with minimal foot traffic on your roof as we have specialized equipment that allows us to apply our moss treatment up to 25ft away if the roof is too steep to access. Our specialized moss spray application will ensure no roof tile damage will be caused to your roof and that the moss can gradually die/fall off and allow the roof tiles to resettle naturally in their original position.
Option 1: Roof Cleaning & Moss Removal method, the moss can be lightly brushed off and then the roof treated with our Moss Treatment.
Option 2: Tile Roof Restoration includes roof repair, moss treatment, soft wash of entire roof, and application of Tile Roof Protector (many colours available).
The first option is gradual as we depend on mother nature’s rain to gently clean the roof, the latter option provides instant curb appeal, however the cost is substantially higher
