The roof of a home or business is often neglected. It’s not at eye level, and sees little to no foot traffic, so it’s easy to forget that your roof undergoes significant wear and tear over time from the elements, just like any other surface on your property. It happens so gradually that most homeowners don’t notice, and what’s worse is that the biggest threat to the health of your roof might not be apparent at first glance.
Algae and moss are plants that thrive on the moisture and precipitation in the air. If they find their way onto your roof, they can creep their way upward, discoloring and damaging shingles. Gloeocapsa magma, a dark colored algae, is particularly hard to spot, and feeds on the limestone present in the shingles . Lichen, an acidic combination of algae and fungus, has roots that can penetrate deep into your shingles. Our professional cleaning will take care of all these pests, preventing deterioration and preserving the life of your roof.
The price of putting off a roof cleaning could be huge. The cost of labor and materials for installation of a new roof can easily climb above $10,000. A professional cleaning from EcoPro Power Washing costs a small fraction of that price, and is guaranteed by a 5 year limited warranty against algae regrowth.
There are numerous other benefits to regular cleaning beyond extending the lifespan of your roof. Customers are often pleasantly surprised by the change in appearance, realizing that over the course of gradual wear and tear, they’d forgotten what their roof originally looked like. Regular cleaning s and maintenance will preserve value and enhance the curb appeal of your property.
Insurance companies know the value of good maintenance. That’s why many of them require policyholders to clean their roofs on a regular basis. A dirty or deteriorated roof isn’t just losing you value on your home and causing a safety hazard – it could cause your insurance company to raise your premiums or cancel your policy as well.
Resist the temptation to use DIY methods. Homeowners who use their own bleach solution often find that the runoff kills their plants and surrounding foliage. A pressure washer accelerates the aging process by eroding granules from their shingles, and will void the warranty from the roofing manufacturer. EcoPro Power Washing’s low – pressure roof cleaning method is ARMA approved, and uses a biodegradable solution that contains no degreasers, which can strip the adhesive that holds your shingles together. Give yourself the peace of mind that comes with hiring an experienced, insured, and professional company.
Regular roof cleaning isn’t just great for your building’s appearance. It’s an affordable way to protect and preserve one of your most important investments. Visit our website (www.EcoProPowerWashing.com ) today for a free estimate. “We are here to serve YOU!”
