We have put this section on here to make people aware of jet washing roofs.
This is advice from Marley tile producer!
The use of high powered jet washes is not recommended as it can damage the surface of the slate or tile, thus reducing its expected life considerably.
Moss and lichen tends to flourish in rural areas or where trees are nearby and where there are shady, damp conditions. Steeper pitched roofs are less likely to support moss and lichen growth as they shed water more quickly than low pitched roofs. By contrast, north facing and shallow roofs tend to remain damper longer and attract the growth of mosses and lichens.
In normal circumstances, the growths are not harmful to the tiles or slates. However, in some extreme cases this growth may affect the drainage of water down the roof. In such cases, they should be removed to avoid possible water ingress into the roof space. There are several methods for the removal of moss and lichen:
Spraying with a toxic wash Copper wire Scraping
Before proceeding with any remedial work to remove moss or lichen, we would recommend speaking to a professional.

I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for the work you
did for me on Friday.
The roof looks amazing now that the moss has been removed and it’s wonderful that the guttering is not constantly dripping above the back door after it has rained.
It was a pleasure to have a considerate and conscientious person working on my property and that the front and rear gardens were cleaned up after you had completed the work. Even one of my neighbours commented on how hard you had both worked and what a good job had been done!
