Your Roof Needs a Bath. . . It’s About That Time!

If your roof has ugly “black stains” and ugly “black streaks” or “algae growing on your shingles” or slate, the answer is “definitely.”  You probably have thought about it at one time or another but did you know that neglecting to clean your roof properly will eventually lead to you having to get a roof replacement?

The Staining on Your Roof is an Indicator that the Damage has Already Begun!

Choose now to eliminate the organisms that are slowly gnawing away at your roof leaving behind unsightly stains.  Algae, lichens, and moss are feasting on the organic materials in your roof shingles.  It’s true, these organisms can eat through your shingles and into the roof framework.  Most people see this as wood rot.  Over time, minor rot accumulates moisture which enters the lightly damaged areas of deterioration.  This process creates a process conducive to mold growth which can be very dangerous if left unchecked.

Your Insurance Company Can Cancel Your Homeowner’s Policy

 

 

 

In an effort to save money, more and more insurance companies are requiring homeowners to confront their stained neglected rooftops or face policy termination.  There have been cases reported where companies give a homeowner a very short time to comply or else. . . .   Your insurance company may or may not be one who is beginning these proactive measures.  The fact clearly illustrates though the importance of not taking the ugly stains on your roof for granted.

 

Lower Cooling Costs:  The Result of Roof Cleaning?

That’s right!  A roof covered with all those organisms has a heck of a time doing it’s job of reflecting sunlight.  Shingles covered with all kinds of organic material suck in heat thus making your attic a microwave.  (Not really a microwave but you get the pictureembarassed.)  Additional summer energy bills combined with the already excessive heating bills from this past winter just isn’t necessary.
