Roof Pressure Washing and Roof Cleaning: What’s the Difference?
You’re likely to see some early signs of roof pressure washing on your asphalt shingle roof. You’ll notice that your roof is no longer looking as shiny and new as it once did when you bought your home. Many homeowners do not realize that this is usually due to mildew and mold growth which can blossom after a single season of rainfalls. If left untreated, this type of mold will cause permanent damage, requiring costly replacement of the entire roof structure.
For homes built within the last 20 years or so, there’s a good chance that cleaning may be all that’s needed to restore its beauty and value. With the proper safety equipment, you can probably do it yourself. However, if your home is older than 20 or 30 years old, it might be necessary to bring in professionals at least every couple of years for the best results.
How to Tell If Your Roof Needs Pressure Washing?
If you notice that little black dots are forming on your roof tiles after rainfall events or there’s a bluish-gray tint to them instead of their original bright white color, don’t wait until these stains become permanent for life! Instead, contact us today and ask about our pressure washing services. We will come out right away and inspect your roof’s exterior surfaces for signs of mold growth. Upon inspection, we may make the necessary repairs to restore its original beauty.
There are many different types of roofing surfaces that can be pressure washed. While asphalt shingle roofs require gentle care, putting too much water pressure on metal or flat roofs could result in cracking and permanent damage. If you’re not sure what type of roofing material your home has, just ask us when we spray it down for the initial cleaning at no additional cost! We will provide you with a list of materials that work best with our equipment before beginning the process.
Why Use Roof Cleaning Services?
One obvious advantage to paying for roof cleaning services is to restore your home’s beauty after years of neglect. This can also lead to higher resale value for homes. If done on an annual basis, you can also protect your roof from damage that could lead to water leaks and other problems.
For both asphalt shingles and metal roofs, regular cleaning and power washing will extend its lifespan by several years or even decades. For homes built prior to the 90s, we highly recommend an annual cleaning because at this time most houses were not designed with roofs made of metal materials. While these roofs do last for many years if cleaned regularly, it’s best to avoid putting too much weight on them by having a professional power wash every year instead!
What if I Need Help?
In some cases, you may need help whether you have a flat roof or Victorian-style home with lots of surface area. In fact, pressure washing a multi-level mansion can be quite a daunting task according to most professionals! We will give you a free estimate of what is required for each level and our hourly rates before starting work.
The best part about pressure washing your home, aside from its improved curb appeal, is that it can save you money in the long run by protecting your investment. This process should only take a day or two to complete depending on how large your roof is and we even offer special roof cleaning coupons for residents! The faster we get started, the faster we’ll finish which means more time for you to enjoy your newly cleaned house!
