Spring is a huge season for home improvement. As we shake off winter’s cold and look forward to the heat and life of summer, homeowners like you are tackling landscaping projects, exterior painting, and maybe getting to that deck repair that Old Man Winter made necessary.
We’ve recently answered questions about the value of roof repairs, maintenance, and replacement, but have you considered having your roof cleaned?
Why Invest In Professional Roof Cleaning Services This Spring?
We should really start by saying that roof cleaning isn’t even on many homeowners’ radar. It’s a portion of the home that is out of sight, out of mind, until it’s obviously time for replacement or something goes wrong. Giving it a routine wash never crosses their mind.
This is unfortunate! As professional roofers, we know that a little TLC and maintenance can save you a lot of money in the long-run. For the same reasons you brush your teeth every day, roof care is certainly worth the time and investment.
With that said, let’s take a look at a few of the practical benefits roof cleaning offers:
1) Increased Curb Appeal
As you can see in the photos above, a cleaned roof offers a drastically improved appearance. This is always important, but especially so if you are planning on selling your home this spring. Why cover your property with a prematurely-aged surface?
2) Protects Against Moss, Lichens, and Algae
Have you ever wondered what those dark patches are that zig-zag their way across your shingles? They are typically caused by moss, lichens, or algae, and are more harmful than you might think. As they take root and grow, they will damage the protective granules in your shingles, shortening the overall functionality and lifespan of your roof.
3) Keep Your Energy Bills Lower
The darkening of your roof also causes more heat to be absorbed and trapped. Not only does this shorten your shingles’ life, but it also will increase your energy bills this summer as you try to keep your house cool.
Talk to a Professional Roofer About Your Roof Cleaning Needs
While you might be tempted to clean your roof yourself, we strongly advise against it. High-pressure streams of water will do catastrophic damage to your shingles’ granules, and can result in water damage to your home as well. Navigating and cleaning your roof is also a potentially hazardous project, and requires the right safety training, tools, and equipment.
At RoofPRO, we use an environmentally-friendly, bio-degradable cleaning formula that will not harm your siding, roof, or pets, and a low-pressure system that is gentle on your roof's surface. We also have a thoroughly-trained, knowledgeable team that can safely and effectively care for your home.
