How to Tell If Your Roof Needs Cleaning

Many people do not realize how infested their roof really is because the spores gradually take it over and a lot of times the color changes uniformly. A good way to check is by looking at your sewer flues and vents. Most of them are galvanized, which means they were created using electrolysis which coats them with thin layer of zinc. The zinc oxide acts as a mold and mildew inhibitor. Therefore, when you look at the vents and flues on your home, you’ll find the original color of your roof! If it looks like this picture, give us a call!


Why Clean Your Roof?

The algae infestation your roof absorbs more heat from the sunlight and traps it in your attic. This heat is radiated into your air conditioning ducts making your A/C work harder and less efficient. That costs you more money in the long run. Having your roof cleaned safely will allow your roof to do what it was designed to do and reflect more of the sunlight, ultimately lowering your energy bill and increasing your A/C’s efficiency.

An average shingle roof is designed to last 30 years. Unfortunately, most people only get half that because they are unaware of the maintenance required to see it’s full lifespan. Having your roof cleaned periodically can help your roof see its maximum intended service life.

Many HOA’s / POA’s require periodic roof cleanings. If not done within the given time frame, they will choose a contractor to provide service and bill you for it. How will this contractor treat your property? Will they walk all over your roof and cause damage? Will they use a pressure washer? Can you trust the people they send to your home? Will they warrant their work?

Don’t get stuck with a contractor YOU didn’t choose!
