You know your roof is designed to last a very long time, and you schedule roofing maintenance with Drew’s. It is a good idea and time to explain why roofing maintenance is so important. Besides the routine checks, we also help keep your roof clean and in good shape. This means keeping your roof free of algae, moss and other growths that can appear on your roof. It is a solid investment for the life of your roof. Here are a few reasons why cleaning your roof is such a strong idea.
Keeping your roof clean and in good shape makes your home look good. Keeping the outside of your home in tip top shape is paramount for a good and happy home. Besides, if you are looking to sell, having the roof looking nice and in shape will go a long way to help moving your home on the open market.
Some growths on roofs are normal and harmless. Others, however, can be detrimental to the life of your roof. Certain organic material can actually eat into your roof and cause structural damage, particularly if the growths get into the subroof and attic.
Not sure what to look for? Look for any odd shaped stains and discoloration on the roof. This is a sure sign that what you have could be doing serious harm and will need to be checked out thoroughly.
Mold and algae can be harmless, but there are times when they can be hazardous to health. Some can be serious allergens and cause real problems with family and pets. Keeping your roof clean and neat can keep these nasties at bay and extend the life of your roof for many years to come.
