If you’re a homeowner, you’ve probably seen it: dark staining, ugly streaking, and moss and mold build-up on your roof. Not only do these growths and discolorations look terrible, they can also be very damaging to the exterior of your home as they contain organisms that actually eat away at your shingles. Over time, your roof will decompose and its lifespan will deteriorate. If you have this problem, it’s time to let Ned Stevens clean your roof with its new soft wash system.
Why Clean Your Roof?
1. Longevity: Moss and stain infested roofs will lose as much as 50% of their service life from microorganisms. A clean roof will last longer and save property owners thousands of dollars on service and replacement costs.
2. Energy Savings: Cleaning your stained roof will save you as much as 40% on your monthly cooling costs. Stained roofs are darker in color and attract significantly more sunlight than clean roofs. Increased amounts of sunlight on your roof will cause your roof to age prematurely, as excess heat builds up in your attic (See Diagram 1). Consequently, a clean roof will reduce cooling costs and keep your attic better ventilated.
3. Aesthetics: A clean roof will keep your home looking great and increase the property value of your home. Additionally, cleaning your roof is far more economical and efficient than replacing it entirely.
4. Shingle Manufacturer’s Warranty: Most shingle manufacturers require property owners to provide adequate maintenance to their roofs in order to maintain their manufacturer’s warranty (See a sample Warranty, Diagram 2 which we have highlighted). Algae growth, staining and any other type of bacterial or fungal infestations are required to be cleaned or removed from the shingles in order to maintain their issued warranties.
To help homeowners avoid all the pitfalls of not cleaning their roofs, Ned Stevens Gutter Cleaning® is proud to announce its latest service offering: Soft Wash Roof Cleaning! The service does not include pressure washing; pressure washing is known to damage roofs and void existing shingle warranties. Instead, our soft wash roof cleaning involves applying an eco-friendly and biodegradable cleaning solution to a dirty roof with the help of a light pressure hose. Harsh scrubbing is not required as the cleaning solution does all the work. And, for added peace of mind, we only use environmentally safe biodegradable cleaners.
In addition to your roof being cleaned, all your plants, shrubs, walkway and non-movable property will be rinsed before, during, and after the roof cleaning process, along with the exterior of your gutters, fascia, and siding of your home. This guarantees that you home will sparkle as much as your clean roof.
