More Good Reasons to Clean Your Roof

100_1294There are many reasons why you you should maintain your roof, which includes having it professionally cleaned by a roof cleaning expert such as ROOF REAL CLEAN.

Reduce Your Energy Costs

To start with, those black streaks are soaking up UV rays, which heat up your attic. You then have to run your AC longer which costs you more money.

Extend the Life of Your Shingles

We’re not talking about making a 30 year shingle roof last 35 years. We are talking about making it last 30 years instead of 20 or less. Fiberglass shingles, which is the most common type of roofing shingles, have been made with limestone as a filler (in the asphalt). These shingles hold moisture and organic “Algae Food” material longer than the older paper/asphalt/ceramic shingles of 20 plus years ago.

Algae happens to love the limestone in these shingles and once the algae becomes noticeable, the stains will only get worse as each year passes. Most roof experts agree that algae is harmful to your roof when it is left untreated. The growth holds moisture within the shingles, which can cause rotting, granule loss and premature aging. Removing algae from your roof with a with a low pressure wash roof cleaning is possible and affordable.

Give Your House More Curb Appeal

If you are you preparing to sell your home, make sure the exterior of your home is as clean as the interior, otherwise you can lose a buyer in the first three minutes of them pulling up to your home. They may not even get out of the car to see the fabulous interior if the exterior lacks curb appeal. If the roof is dirty and dingy, the buyer will assume it needs replacement and won’t want the additional expense or at the very least, will lower their offer on the house. 

The truth is that roofs don’t need to be replaced because they are dirty. All they need is a little stain removal and they will look like new again. So, don’t leave money on the table or lose a potential buyer because of a dirty roof. Be smart and get your roof cleaned by the professionals at  ROOF REAL CLEAN.

Your neighbors will be pleased with how clean your roof looks and your pride of home-ownership will show. For a FREE roof cleaning estimate, give ROOF REAL CLEAN a call today at 703-973-1619. We get the job done right!
