Cleaning your roof on a regular basis is important for many reasons. First, regular cleaning helps to limit the wear and tear on your roof, thereby avoiding damage that may lead to expensive repairs or replacement. Second, a clean roof is an attractive roof—the cleaner your roofing materials, the better your home will look. Finally, routine cleaning of your roof helps to extend the lifespan of your shingles, helping you get the most out of your investment into your roof.
Leaves, branches, moss and general debris can all damage your shingles and roof structure. As these objects hit your roof and are blown around. They can spread rot-causing moisture and have the potential to puncture shingles. As rot or punctures increase in size and number, your roof becomes compromised and may require costly repair or even more costly replacement.
Routinely cleaning your roof of large debris, leaves and moss helps to avoid the potential damage and protect shingles and roofing structures from avoidable harm.
Dirty shingles tend to take on varying color patterns. Some dirty roofs take on brown markings, others green—all become visually unappealing. Cleaning your shingles on a regular basis helps to improve their look, thereby making your home more attractive from all angles.
Extend the Lifespan of Your Roof
When debris or dirt builds up on your roof or in your gutters, rain water cannot properly drain as intended. As water sits idle on your roof’s surface, it takes a toll on shingles and the structure underneath. A clean roof—free of debris, moss and dirt—is a functional roof. The more functional your roof is the longer shingles and structure will last. The longer your roof lasts, the more value you get from your investment and the better protected your home and property remain.
