Roof Cleaning

Roof cleaning is probably one of the home improvements that are furthest from a homeowner’s mind. By neglecting to take care of your roof, this may cause your roof to need replacing sooner than later. Also, it keeps your roof looking and functioning much better. So, in order to avoid your roof becoming damaged in one way or another, consider roof cleaning to keep your roof as clean as possible.

5 Reasons to Keep a Clean Roof

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.

Roof cleaning can quickly restore your home’s beauty. Your roof can develop various stains that attract the eye (and not in a good way), and it definitely does not help your home’s curb appeal. If you have intentions on selling your home in the near future, you must call in a roof cleaning company!
Re-roofing can be expensive, so by enlisting a company or contractor to carry out the procedure of roof cleaning, you are reducing your risk of needing a completely new roof within the near future. For a fraction of the cost, you can have your roof look new once again with roof cleaning.
We’ve discussed the late stages of harmful roof-staining organisms, such as algae, moss and lichens, but what about the earlier stages? These organisms can still do damage even early on, as these organisms use your shingles as their source of food. The longer that they stay on your roof and eat your shingles, the more damage that will be caused. As soon as staining is detected on your roof, a roof cleaning is beneficial for your roof and your home overall.
Further, as algae spreads across your roof, the shingle granules (used to reflect sunlight) are unable to properly do their job. Instead of reflecting the heat, the shingles will begin to absorb the heat from the sun’s rays. This means that you’ll spend more money each month on your utility bill, as your home air conditioner will go into overtime trying to keep the home cool. Roof cleaning can remove the staining and organisms so that you roof can go back to reflecting the sunlight efficiently.

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. Don’t spend money on a roof replacement when you don’t need one; please give us a call (256) 326-4232 or email us first to see if your roof can just be cleaned. Whether you need a new roof or you can just have it cleaned, make sure that you consider roof cleaning regularly to keep your roof and your home in tip-top shape.

I am very pleased with the services provided by C&K Roofing. I highly recommend them. Jim did the estimate and Beth... brought the contract to my house for me to sign. She also helped me in deciding the shingle color (which by the way, was an excellent choice). The work was scheduled and the work crew (a total of 8) showed up as promised. The crew put down tarps to catch most of the debris which made clean up easier. They were able to finish the roof in one day a ++. The new roof looks amazing. Cody from C&K Roofing was on site and throughout the process he constantly cleaned up by picking up loose debris and scanning for nails. Cody made sure the wind didn't blow trash into the neighbor's yard. He returned the second day to do another sweep of the area for nails. Never seen any company do a clean up this well. Thanks C&K Roofing!read more

They did a very professional replacement of our roof with a 50 year warranty. They also installed 2 skylights and a... solartube. They do high quality work at a very reasonable price. They are hard workers who don't stop until they are finished. They even added our chicken house roof to the contract without charging extra. I would recommend this company to anyone who needs roof or skylight work.read more

We just went through the process of getting our roof done. Prior to Choosing C&K Roofing we got 6 estimates. After... checking all the companies we chose them to do our work and THANK GOD we did! Their crew was fast, efficient, and more than professional. Now, as with any estimate their is always the "unforeseen problems" but this was not something they couldn't handle. Their crew had more than the skills needed to repair the substantial water damage to the rafters that was revealed. In addition to the rafter repairs needed, the soffit also needed to be replaced and this too was done impeccably. Last, and by far the most important thing, they worked with us on price!! I can't say enough about the work done, Beth & Jim and their crew in their professionalism and courtesy and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND C&K Roofing be your first call for any roofing work you need performed. One last thing. As a veteran, I have to thank C&K for donating their time and efforts to help the American Legion Post here in Huntsville!read more

C&K is an outstanding family-owned customer centric business. Brian spent several days prepping our leaky roof at... American Legion Post 237 on Drake Ave. Today their team of professional roofers sealed the roof. There are a few problem areas where flashing and special trim are being fabricated and will be installed. C&K is donating all of the labor and they teamed with ABC Supply to provide the materials. This is truly a great company. The owners, Jim and Beth Gentry, are honest folks who are dedicated to serving veterans and improving our community!read more

This is an excellent company! When I needed a new roof, I googled several roofing companies. The reviews for C&K... convinced me they were the right choice. Immediately after my first talk with Jim and Beth, I knew I had made the right decision. They are knowledgeable, supportive, and offer a tremendous roofing package. Beth was only a text away from answering a question or providing advice. This family-owned business is top quality. The new roof looks amazing! You can’t do better than this company.read more

If you want a reliable, do what they say company, go with C and K. Jim and Beth spend time with you to explain what... they provide, how the job will be done and are very professional. The crew worked around the clock, like nothing you’ve ever seen. A very hard working group and got the job done quickly. They took extra care to see that no damage was done to our yard and flowers. They took their time to ensure the yard was completely cleaned up. We are extremely pleased and love the new roof. #choosecandk.read more
