Your insurance might not cover any damage if they can prove you have not taken care of your roof. All roof manufacturers will give you a booklet where you will find their recommendation of how the roof should be maintained. Insurance companies will take advantage of this if you don’t follow the recommendation.
Most homeowners think that the black streaking is normal shingle wear and tear and many replace their roofs prematurely. All the roof needs is a good roof cleaning. A proper roof cleaning will allow you to maximize the shingle life for up to 20 to 25 years, or more. Roof Cleaning is now an accepted part of home exterior maintenance.
An important part of roof maintenance is the routine cleaning, clearing and tidying of the roof and its related systems. Pay attention not only to shingles and flashing but other key components, such as overhangs, down spouts, installations (such as skylights, vents, chimneys, solar panels), and ventilation.
When you ever plan to lease or sell a house, having a clean roof will increase the value dramatically. A clean roof is safer and more pleasant to look at than a roof covered in debris. Houses that are clean are sold by 3-7% more than the ones that are ugly and unkempt.
Whatever is on the roof can and does make its way to your yard/garden eventually. A good roof cleaning keeps the harmful materials and droppings far away from your garden, pets, and children. Since we use more earth friendly products for roof cleaning, you don’t have to worry about chemicals ending up there either.
The cost for roof cleaning services is minor compared to the alternatives. Not only can roof cleaning improve the life of your roof, but our professionals can spot damage and potential damage while they are treating the roof. Which would you rather do; have roof cleaning done, or replace the roof?
