Roof Surfaces

Slate Tile Roofs

Slate tiles are a very brittle tile and can break easily. Moss growing on Slate tiles looks unsightly and if left untreated can become thick.

Moss Roof Treatment is perfect for Slate tiled roofs as you cannot pressure clean them, as it can cause several issues. MRT will kill the moss, mould & lichen on the tiles, it will then wash off overtime.

Dead moss on ground- blown off roof


North facing sides clean quicker than south facing sides


Moss moving down the tiles – piling in areas


First 6 months you will notice little changes on roof.


12-18 months is where most of the changes are noticed

- Areas that are more exposed to wind and rain will clean quicker

- Sheltered areas will be dead, but may take longer to be dislodged by the wind and rain


Dead moss will crumble into dust and when washed away it will keep the gutters clean in normal rainfall
