5 Reasons To Have Your Roof Cleaned

Tallahassee Roof Cleaning

Protect Your Home

Your roof is your first layer of protection against the outside elements, meaning damage to your roof can spread once your roof is no longer in good condition. By keeping algae, moss, and lichens away, you’ll help keep your roof in good condition for longer.

Once your roof is exposed to outside elements, other structures in your home will be vulnerable. This can lead to roof leaks and moisture seeping into the walls. These new problems will eventually lead to mold growth inside your home, creating an unsafe environment to live in.

Save Money on Roof Repairs

Once mold and other elements remain on the roof for too long, permanent damage can take place. Shingles have to be replaced, water can get under the shingles and rot the plywood underneath, which can cause further mold and mildew. Having your roof washed once you realize mold and other organic growth is taking place can save you thousands of dollars in repairs.

Extend the Lifespan of Your Roof

The goal is to get as many years out of your roof as possible while at the same time keeping your home a safe place to live. A way to get the most years out of your roof is to clean it when needed. Leaving organic growth on the roof can cause shingles to expand and separate from the top structure of the house. Also, leaving mold and bacteria can cause the pebbles on the shingles to detach.

Keep the Warranty on Your Roof

The roof is one of the most expensive parts of the home to repair or replace. Having a warranty on your roof is essential, but most warranties are only honored if you maintain your roof. If you don’t put any effort into roof maintenance, then you might have a challenge convincing the manufacturer to honor the warranty.

Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Having your roof washed is not only crucial in protecting the safety of your home and health, and not only important in saving money in future repairs, but also in its curb appeal. The roof is one of the first parts of your property that you notice when you pull into the driveway. You can wash the rest of the house, you can wash your concrete driveway, but if your roof is dirty and has organic growth on it, then it will stick out like a sore thumb. For all the more important reasons to have your roof cleaned, having it cleaned for its curb appeal doesn’t hurt either.

These are only a few reasons to have your roof washed when needed, but they are great reasons because they involve the safety of those in your household, saving money, making your roof last, and the way your roof looks every day when you pull into the driveway.
