Four Reasons To Clean Your Roof Before You Sell

Be the first to comment!

 A home's roof takes a lot of abuse to keep homeowners safe and comfortable. In summer, the roofing materials experience constant exposure to the sun, wind, hail, and rain. In winter, accumulations of snow and ice, along with the constant stress of freeze and thaw cycles can make these materials brittle and more easily damaged. But in addition to weather, roofing materials also come under attack from dirt, leaves, and other materials. Luckily, having the roof cleaned can help to neutralize these attacks, as well as give the home increased curb appeal to impress buyers.



1. Roof cleaning can prevent staining and help the roof retain its original color and attractiveness Many types of trees and bushes that are commonly planted around residential homes have the potential to cause streaks and stains on roof surfaces from the pigments and dyes in leaves, pollen, and blossoms. In addition to plant matter, smoke, salt spray, vehicle exhaust fumes, and many other substances found in the air can build up on roof surfaces and make them look drab and old. Periodic cleaning of the roof surfaces can remove stains, streaks, and built up substances from roofing materials and help to keep them looking fresh and bright.

2. Roof cleaning can help maintain the roof's integrity and lengthen its lifespan
Another excellent reason to have a residential roof cleaned regularly is to remove materials that can settle or grow on the surface. Falling leaves, pollen, acorns, twigs, moss, and lichens, settle or grow into thick layers on the roof surface. When these become waterlogged from rain, they can begin to degrade the surface. If the accumulation becomes heavy enough, damage to the roof's structural support can begin to occur. Since this type of damage can be very expensive to repair, homeowners will find it much more cost-efficient to eliminate this risk by remembering to have their roofs cleaned on a regular schedule.

3. Roof cleaning can make a home more energy efficient
Many roofing materials are designed to boost the energy efficiency of the home by reflecting the heat of the sun, instead of absorbing it and overheating the attic space. When a roof becomes dull and dirty, it loses its ability to reflect hot sunshine. In addition to increasing cooling costs, this can also cause the home's cooling system to work harder, decreasing the lifespan of the unit. To help keep cooling systems working as efficiently as possible and enjoy the lowest cooling bills, homeowners will want to add periodic roof cleaning to their home maintenance plan.

4. Roof cleaning can help keep the home insurance company happy
Roof replacement and repair are frequent claims that homeowners make on their home insurance policies. Since insurers strive to reduce the numbers of these claims in order to limit their liability and allow them to offer homeowners better rates on their insurance policies, insurance brokers want to prevent these claims, when possible. Roofs that are dirty or covered with leaves and other materials are known to increase potential issues, such as leaks and roof failures. Because of this, some insurers regularly do drive-by inspections of roofing and alert homeowners when their roofs need cleaned. Failing to take these alerts seriously can result in rising premiums for policies or even cancellation. Regular, periodic cleaning is the proactive way for homeowners to make sure their insurance companies are happy and their rates are more likely to remain affordable.

Walden Lake Roof Cleaning

Be the first to comment!

Here is another roof cleaning we did today in The Walden Lake subdivision in Plant City Florida.
 This will be the last cleaning for this asphalt shingle roof, since it is 18 years old. We made it look as good as an 18 year old asphalt shingle roof can, so these customers could get the Walden Lake HOA off their backs. One of the reasons the homeowners association sends out roof cleaning letters, is to keep all the roofs in Walden Lake as clean as possible, for as long as possible. This black algae that discolors roofs has it's spores by the wind and squirrels. So, one filthy roof in a subdivision can infect all the close by neighbors roofs.  If you live in Walden Lake and need to have your shingle or tile roof cleaned, call us for an estimate at 813 655 8777

Non Pressure Roof Cleaning Plant City Florida

Be the first to comment!

Here is the second non pressure roof cleaning we did in Plant City Florida today 8-22-2017
We did a soft wash exterior cleaning, as well as a no pressure roof cleaning for this shingle roof.
 This roof was not as dirty as the first one we cleaned today, but the back of the house had really bad mold on it. Plant City has had a lot of rainfall this summer, and the algae and mold are growing like crazy, on many of the homes there.
Our customers were very happy. This was the first time they have used our roof cleaning company. They found us on a Google Search for "Roof Cleaning Tampa".  Even though they live in Plant City, these customers decided to look for Tampa Company, because they felt they would get a better job.
Call us at 813 655 8777 for a non pressure roof cleaning estimate. We offer service in a 50 mile radius of Tampa, and will travel further, if the job is large enough.

Here is a shingle roof we cleaned today 8-23-2017 in Plant City, Florida.
As you can see, this roof was pretty dirty, but cleaned up very nice. This job was a referral from the neighbors across the street, who hired us to clean their roof about 1 year ago.

 This home was in Walden Lake in Plant City, and they are a deed restricted community. Our customer got a letter asking him to clean  his roof, from the Walden Lake Homeowners Association.
