How to soft wash concrete roof tiles


A customer wanted to know what, in our experience, is the best way to soft wash concrete roof tiles.

We told him that it’s important to first determine if the concrete roof tiles have a surface coating. Some do, some do not.

If they are coated, click here to learn the principles of treating coated artificial slates, which are similar to the principles of treating coated concrete tiles. 

If they are not coated they will likely have had a "through-colour" dye added during manufacture, as in the photo above, in which case soft washing them is straight-forward.

Nowadays we treat nearly all roofs with Bio Cleanze (click here to visit our roof cleaning page which explains in detail) unless a customer has a particularly strong reason for wanting rapid results, such as preparing to move home.

In which case we would tackle it with the more labour-intensive process of treating with Lighting Cleanze.
