Roof / gutter cleaning by New Leaf Landscaping
When green growth spreads, it keeps the roof damp and forms the basis for more and more moss, algae and plants. Rainwater can no longer drain away properly. If water even penetrates under the roof due to the backwater, the roof structure can become infested with mould. Mosses store water and permanently pass this moisture on to the subsoil. Mosses, moulds and lichens on the roof will dissolve the protective layer on your tiles. Once the protective layer is attacked, the tiles become porous and water can penetrate. And then your roof tiles are the ideal candidate for cracking and chipping. And, of course, optical reasons: Moss, lichen and other plants on the roof make the house look unkempt. They disrupt the overall appearance of your house and lower its resale value.
We can help you keep your roof safe and clean!
Blocked gutters can cause serious damage to your home and property. They are difficult to reach and costly to clean. That is why homeowners often take far too little care of their gutters. Gutters have a very important function – they protect your house from moisture and storms. If you as a homeowner neglect the gutters for only a few years, this can drastically reduce the value and also the living quality of your house. Without regular cleaning, the gutters are constantly damp, full and heavy. They can become bent and are pushed away from their position towards the outside. If water then overflows, it can also flow behind the gutter and damage the roof edge and house facade. Moisture on your facade can cause consequential damage such as mould. And this is not only unpleasant, but also very difficult to remove.
