    hey guys got 2 roof cleans coming up and was wondering what the best way to clean them is neither of them are that badly covered in moss just really dirty. The last roof I cleaned I just turbo it on really low pressure and it came up really nice but been toying with the idea of getting a water broom or maybe even a flat surface cleaner then just lower it down the roof bit by bit.? Thoughts please simon

    So a good stiff broom and lots of hypo is the way to go daveyboy.

    I would mate
    The way tiles are made the granular stuff they are coated with is designed to wear over the years
    You can literally take decades off their lifespan with a pressure washer
