Extend the Life of Your Roof

Thursday, March 24th, 2022 by Alexis Smith


Roof cleaning will help you pro-long the life of your roof and prevent any repairs up to a couple of years. Why is roof cleaning so important for the longevity of your roof? Well, there are a plethora of benefits as follows:

 

  • Protect your shingles from organic growth
  • Eliminates unhealthy mold and mildew
  • Prevents leaks in your home
  • Prevents water damage to your home and yard
  • Improves the appearance of your house
  • Easier to sell a home with a clean/new looking roof
  • Prevents big repairs and huge expenses 

 

Many roof repair problems come from moisture, water spillage, weather, or having an older roof in general. Cleaning your roof stops fungi from forming. Preventing patches and streaks of growth on your roof should be done regularly, even if it isn’t visible. These problems can be difficult to spot visually, especially only looking from the ground up. Usually, by the time you recognize these issues, they’ve already settled in and done their damage!

 

Routine cleaning will help your roof stay clean and free of organic growth. It will also help prevent future growth from grabbing hold of your shingles. You even invest in algae-resistant roofing shingles with special metallic coatings that prevent the fungi and streak formations. The best part is, roof cleaning is inexpensive and gives you and your family peace of mind. What are you waiting for? Schedule an appointment today with Klaus Larsen Roofing!
