Roof Pressure Washing

Your roof takes a beating. It protects you from everything mother nature throws at it. Debris carried from severe weather, birds using it as a bathroom, and flowing water negatively affects your roof. Take a look at your roof. Does it look like a ugly painting? If so you are in dire need of a roof cleaning. It is of the most important aspects of a home, so why not give it some special treatment. Neglecting to pressure wash your roof will only cause issues in the future. This article will explain how your roof became so dirty and how a good cleaning benefits you and your home.

How Did This Happen?

Your roof is constantly exposed to the elements. Some homes are more vulnerable to algae, mold, and mildew than others. Algae thrives in humid areas; roofs that are shaded from the sun develop more moisture which creates an area perfect for mold and mildew to grow. The main cause of a filthy roof is neglect. Too many people overlook this small but significant problem. You must pay attention to its condition before moss begins to overtake your beautiful roof.

Avoid Future Expenses

A great way to save money is by anticipating a problem. This is especially true when dealing with maintaining properties. Companies implement preventative maintenance to avoid equipment failure or facility damage which, in time, saves them from ordering replacements. The same thing can be said about your home, specifically your roof. As time passes, mold and algae form on the roof’s material and can eventually damage individual shingles. The roof’s structure is then exposed which can lead to decreased insulation and even water leaks. Soon you will have to repair your home’s interior all because of some stains on your roof. A scheduled roof cleaning allows you to defend your home from damaged surfaces and avoid expensive replacements.

Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Next time you drive through your community take a look at some of the houses. Are their roofs  stained as well? A home with a dirty exterior is unappealing. If you are trying to sell your home, unsightly marks and mildew may deter potential buyers. Not only is it an eye sore, but it also reflects that the structural integrity may be compromised. A simple roof cleaning can dramatically change the image of your home. Your home’s curb appeal will improve and possibly increase property value. To maximize this opportunity, tell your neighbors about the benefits of cleaning your roof. Soon your community will be filled with homes that look brand new.
