Over time the elements and other environmental factors take their toll on your roof. This issue is amplified by the fact that from the 1950s onwards, use of traditional slate roofing files declined in favour of cheaper pre-cast concrete files. Often available in vibrant colours, architects favoured these roof files as they complemented their bright and modem designs. Unfortunately pigment and pre-cast technology was not as advanced as it is today and the roof tiles' original vibrant colours faded to the now familiar dull grey. In addition, quality varied and some files have proven to have a design life of only 25 years. Today in extreme cases the file surface can actually break down and become porous, resulting in moisture retention and encouraging the growth of unsightly moss, green mould and lichens. The retained moisture also increases load on the roof trusses and ultimately leaks to the inside walls, showing up as damp patches. In most cases a roof renovation, including careful repair of structural defects followed by application of Kolourseal, will restore the roof tiles' vibrant colours that originally made them so appealing, and re-seal them against future damage from the elements.
