    I am looking at giving my roof a good clean and wondered if anyone had any advice or good products they have come across to use?

    I have only used the Autoglym cleaner kit from Halfords... Seems OK to me

    Tut tut Neal, did you miss the sale at Halfords. I got mine for £16.99

    Autoglym cleaner is okay, not the best but does the job, Their ultraproofer is perfect though, can't fault it.

    If you want to get rid of the moss try the cleaners from renovo, they do a whole kit which includes colour for around £50 for the bm's

    I've used the Autoglym kit with good results but it sounds like there are a few other good products out there!

    Autosmart G101 to clean the roof, diluted 1:3 and agitated with a stiff brush then thoroughly pressure washed for best results.

    And 303 aerospace to protect the roof once its nice and dry.
