Is Roof Cleaning Necessary?

When’s the last time you took a good look at your roof? Part of increasing your home’s curb appeal is taking good care of your roof. Also, your roof can be the cause of several costly repairs that will drain your bank account faster than you can say “shingle”.

Your roof is exposed to so many things-the rain, snow, sleet, ice,hail…and that’s just the weather. Your roof gets dirty just like any other part of your house. Dirt can trap moisture which turns into damage and weakens your shingles.

Notice those black streaks? Some people think the black stains they see are just part of the aging process of their roof-but reality is those stains can be just the beginning of your problems. This is a type of algae that, like dirt, can cause damage to the shingles which exposes your roof to further damage as well. Algae, lichens, and moss are all things that can cause major damage if left unchecked. They will take years off of your roof life and could be the cause of other issues with your home.

Another reason to clean your roof is that when dirt, algae, lichens, moss, etc are just sitting on your roof, it compromises the UV protection of your house. Do you know what that means? Higher utility bills! Cleaning the roof helps you save money on your utilities.

Roof cleaning adds to the beautification of your home. If you are putting time, energy, and money into making your house look beautiful on the outside-invest in a roof cleaning. A dirty roof will make your house look older so don’t skip over it. It’s worth the investment to have a professional company like EasyPro to come and get your roof looking brand new again.
