Moss, lichens and/or algae that accumulates on your roof can begin to eat away at your shingles making its way to your roof deck resulting in rotted wood thereby causing moisture to enter and creating a hospitable environment for the growth of mold. Anyone – pets and people – is at risk for developing serious health conditions when exposed to mold. By cleaning your roof regularly, you avoid costly repairs, such as having the entire roof deck and roof repaired or re-installed.
Replace as a Last Resort
Research suggests that 50 percent of homeowners replace their roof because they look old or simply ugly. However, half of those roof replacements were not necessary and instead could have had a thorough roof cleaning to restore its beauty and efficiency.
