Terracotta Roof Restoration Melbourne
Terracotta tiles are not all the same. Some Terracotta tiles are manufactured with a clear glaze coating, some don’t. Over time a Terracotta tile can deteriorate and start to soak water and become porous. This leads to moss and lichen growing on the tiles.
To resolve a terracotta tile growing moss and lichen we apply a hypo tile detergent designed to kill moss, lichen and algae on roof tiles.
After applying the treatment, we leave it for a period of 3-4 days to work. The roof is them cleaned using a high-pressure cleaner to remove all debris. This prepares the roof for a new terracotta glaze. This is a clear protective coating designed for porous terracotta tiles.
