To some, roof cleaning might not seem like an essential service and we think that it’s understandable. But even though your roof mostly sits out of sight, getting your roof cleaned is about more than just aesthetic. If a roof can get dirty, it starts growing moss and lichen, and collects with debris, it could be wearing away at the material. Whether you have a shingle roof, flat roof, or a metal one, these things will all be able to cause harm in their way. You don’t want them to be the reason that your roof starts leaking or that it wears away quicker, so you are going to want to make sure you are trusting our team to get it cleaned.
Whenever we undergo a roof cleaning task, we always recommend to our clients that we clean their gutters too. A gutter that has been clogged up by moss, leaves, twigs, and other debris could be doing a lot of harm for your home. As the organic materials decay in the damp gutters, they’ll attract insects and flies, which could eventually lead to other pests coming to take shelter too. All of these could work their way into your home, and that is before even mentioning the damage that a blocked gutter would do in the rain. So, it should go without saying that gutter cleaning is just as important as the roof itself.
Moss and Lichen Removal
Moss and lichen both cause serious harm to roofs, especially shingle ones. They can grow between and beneath shingles, decaying the surface below and breaking individual tiles, one by one. Aside from looking terrible, that can cause serious structural problems for your roof, which simply isn’t worth the risk. So, you absolutely cannot afford to be leaving moss and lichen untouched.
General maintenance work for your roof is always advisable and it gets the help you get the maximum number of years from yours. Replacing missing tiles, reattaching flashing, fascia restoration, and all other minor treatments are going to be the things that make the difference over time. So, take full advantage of our cleaning and maintenance services and make sure you can guarantee that with your roof.
