Should You Pressure Wash Your Roof?
Pressure washing is a great way to remove dirt, grime, and organic growth. But is it the right solution for cleaning your roof? The answer really depends.
Hire a Professional Pressure Washer
We’re not just saying that because we ARE professional pressure washers. This is the most important factor. If you’re going to attempt pressure washing yourself, skip your roof. Without the proper technique, water and cleaning solution can get under your shingles and cause damage.
Roofing materials are costly and easy to damage. When you hire a trained professional, you know they’ll handle your roof with care. Different types of roofing materials require different water pressure. Too much pressure causes damage. Too little pressure leaves you working harder and not smarter.
So, if you’re going to hire a professional, the answer is yes. Pressure washing your roof is important. It offers many benefits to your home.
Removes Dirt and Debris
Pressure washing gets rid of items on your roof that can speed up deterioration. When dirt and leaves sit on your roof, they trap moisture. This leads to organic growth, algae, and general disrepair. Damage may be so small at first that you don’t notice it. In fact, dirt and debris can actually mask damage, so you can’t see it. When your roof is clean, it’s easier to do a regular inspection to make sure everything looks OK.
Once damage begins, it spreads quickly. This is especially true about moisture and organic growth. If the wood under your shingles gets wet, it can spread organic growth to the inside of your home. This puts your family at risk and also leaves you with costly repairs that may include replacing your roof entirely. You can avoid this damage by investing in a pressure washing service. And pressure washing isn’t just for shingle roofs. It’s also a great solution for other roofing materials, and gutter cleaning, too.
Elevates Your Home’s Look
Your neighbors and visitors may not realize how clean your roof is after a pressure washing service. But if it’s dirty, you can bet they’ll notice that. Instead of leaving leaves and stains on your roof, clear them away. Your clean roof will make your entire home exterior look better.
