FOUR REASONS TO CLEAN A ROOF

FOUR REASONS TO CLEAN A ROOF

Before we get to FOUR REASONS TO CLEAN A ROOF, be sure you understand roof cleaning methods.  Affordable Roof Cleaning of Texas advises all customers to never allow anyone to pressure wash the roof.  Instead, insist that your roof cleaning service use a SOFT WASH CLEANING METHOD.  This ensures that no damage occurs to the surface of the roof.  You will also want to insist on proof for complete pressure washing insurance coverage.  So here are FOUR REASONS TO CLEAN A ROOF.  

FOUR REASONS TO CLEAN A ROOF

CURB APPEAL

The roof is one of the first things people notice when they drive by or visit your home.  A clean roof projects a far warmer and more inviting atmosphere that welcomes family and friends as guests in your home.  And it even sends a positive community messages to strangers.  A clean roof enhances overall aesthetics, making the entire home look fresh and attractive.

LENGTHENS LIFESPAN

A clean roof prevents bacteria from digging into and eating away at your tiles and shingles.  If left unchecked, those black ugly streaks that appear will result in two things.  First, you’ll end up with leaks that will require costly repairs.  Second, the overall lifespan of the roof will be reduced.  So you will end up paying thousands of dollars in premature replacement cost.  Most roofs are designed to last approximately 15-20 years.  In addition, most roofs comes with a manufacture’s warranty with specific cleaning guidelines.  In most cases, the warranty is null and void if cleaning specifications are not followed.  So make sure you get maximum years from your roof by keeping it clean at regular intervals.

PROPERTY VALUE

A well maintained roof will not only save money over time, but it will add to the value of your home when it’s time to sell.  In fact, if the entire neighborhood maintains a clean roof, then everyone benefits and property values rise for all.  Usually, when the roof is not maintained, you will also notice the house, driveways, and sidewalks are also  covered with dirt, grime, and grease.  Property value suffers when neighborhoods don’t look their best.

ENERGY COSTS

The dark streaks and stains which accumulate over time attract heat from the sun.  This is heat is then absorbed and transferred into the home.  Unfortunately, your air conditioning is forced to work even harder, resulting in energy costs increasing.

ROOF CLEANING SUGARLAND

ROOF CLEANING SUGARLAND

We are glad to provide ROOF CLEANING SUGARLAND service for this beautiful suburb of Houston.  Just 19 miles southwest of downtown Houston, Imperial Sugar has headquarters here.  In fact, the Imperial Sugar crown logo is featured in the city seal and logo.  This fast growing community now has a population of over 120,000 residents.  Large scale master plan communities contribute significantly to population growth with as much as 46% job growth.  With all this fast pace growth, ROOF CLEANING SUGARLAND becomes a vital service to keep this beautiful community looking fresh and attractive.

SHINGLE AND TILE

With our ROOF CLEANING SUGARLAND we have noticed that there are, for the most part, two roof types.  The two most common roof types are shingle and tile.  Shingle roofing consists of two layers.  There is a base layer which usually consists of asphalt, and the top layer has granules.  These granules could be made of slate, quartz, brick, stone or schist.  Tile roofing is traditionally made from local materials such as terracotta or slate.  Modern materials such as concrete and plastic are also possible, and some clay tiles have a waterproof glaze.

MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY

It is critically important that any cleaning contractor understands the roof makeup.  There are strict manufacturer’s guidelines that void the roof warranty if not cleaned according to standards.  Most roofs include a warranty of twenty to thirty years, depending on the roof type and manufacturer.  Our ROOF CLEANING SUGARLAND service will not void your warranty and will prevent premature replacement costs.  There are many residents who end up replacing their roof when professional cleaning would return the roof to it’s original condition and color.  Keeping your roof cleaned over time will extend the life span of the roof by many, many years.

SOFT WASH METHOD

To ensure no damage occurs, we do not pressure wash the roof, nor do we ever recommend it.  Instead, we use a soft wash method and in most cases, do not walk on the roof.  With professional grade equipment and over twenty years of experience, we are able to spray the roof from ground areas.  We use environmentally friendly cleaning products that are safe for you, your plants, landscaping, and pets. Our soft wash method removes those ugly black streaks and returns your roof to like new color and condition.  In addition to the video below, here is a LINK to additional benefits of roof cleaning!

COMMON SUGGESTIONS

Family, friends, neighbors and real estate experts will most likely provide more suggestions than you can implement.  Here are some of the most common suggestions for preparing the inside.  Get rid of the clutter.  Remove personal photos.  And present an image that will allow the general public to visualize their own belongings and pictures there.  Of course, consider paint and removing scuff marks and stains one way or another.  Make sure handles and doorknobs are tight and all electrical and plumbing issues resolved.  Consider utilizing plants, and of course, clean and deodorize.

EXTERIOR CLEANING

But be sure to factor in the importance of exterior cleaning, since curb appeal is vital.  After all, the outside is the first impression they form of their potential new home.  In addition to a house wash and concrete cleaning, we highly recommend a clean roof.  CLEAN ROOFS SELL HOUSES because it is often the very first thing they notice.  If the roof is dark and dingy with streaks and stains, it is an automatic turn off.  CLEAN ROOFS SELL HOUSES because potential buyers often equate a dirty roof with replacement costs they will bear.  And CLEAN ROOFS SELL HOUSES because it really does add sparkle and shine to the rest of the property.

Financial Savings

Cleaning your roof means that it will last much longer, avoiding premature replacement costs.  When the roof is not cleaned regularly and properly, the darker stains attracts and retains heat.  This drives up the monthly cost to keep the home cool.  A roof with algae stains contributes to the possibility and a greater degree of sickness due to air born pathogens.  In fact, there is some insurance companies that threaten to cancel your homeowners policy if they discover you have not properly maintained your roof.  Over the long haul, the resale value of your home is higher when the roof is maintained and kept looking it’s best.  It serves both an aesthetic and practical purpose that results in financial savings.

PRACTICAL BENEFITS

Believe it or not, there are even more advantages beyond financial savings.  One of the most practical benefits is that neighbors appreciate the more pleasant visual appeal from their view.  In fact, in some cases they even become inspired to have their own roof cleaned, which benefits the entire neighborhood.  There is also the greater sense of pride and appreciation you have for your own home when you see a clean roof.

ROOF APPEARANCE ESTABLISHES CURB APPEAL

ROOF APPEARANCE AND CURB APPEAL

Homeowners preparing to sell need to know that roof appearance determines curb appeal.  Surveys show that roof appearance and upkeep shapes 40% of curb appeal perception. Many potential buyers make a decision not to purchase a home based upon the condition of the roof and its appearance. If you have your roof cleaned before placing your home on the market, you greatly enhance your chances of selling your home for your desired value in the timely manner. Let me repeat that 40% of curb appeal is based upon the appearance and upkeep of your roof!

POTENTIAL BUYERS VIEW OF YOUR ROOF

Stop and think about the vision of your roof through the eyes of potential buyers. What if they see dark stains, streaks and moss or lichen living and growing on the roof? If they see all kinds of evidence of wildlife settled in and enjoying residence on your roof, how will they respond? What if they see piles and piles of debris, pinestraw, leaves and branches gathered in corners and creating stains of their own? In many cases, they will not even take the next step to look at the inside if they see a dirty, neglected roof on the outside!

COST COMPARISON

Even if the rest of the house is in fantastic shape, they know that roof replacement is a major expense! In many cases, they will negotiate the cost of roof replacement into the final sales price of the home. So presenting a home with a roof that’s in great shape is paramount to making the sale! On average, the cost of cleaning your roof is 10% of the cost of roof replacement. Think about this for a moment. You can replace your roof for about $15,000, or you can have it professionally cleaned for $1500. We recommend having it cleaned!

Roof Cleaning in Spring, Texas

ROOF CLEANING IN SPRING, TEXAS

 

Spring, Texas has a very long and interesting history, which makes roof cleaning here a priority. This unique community has come a long way since its beginnings in 1836 when the town had about 150 residents. Farming was the main industry in those early years, which included sugar cane, cotton and vegetables. With the addition of a railroad, mills, a post office, a church and a bank, Spring grew.  By 1912, Spring had approximately 1200 residents.  Bonnie and Clyde supposedly once robbed the bank in Spring, Texas in the 1930’s.  Later, Spring, Texas became the home to Goodyear’s airship America, also known as the Goodyear Blimp. Today, Spring, Texas boasts a population of over 55,000 people with many older homes being fully restored. This quaint town with a rich history has attracted many tourists who enjoy the newly formed Old Town shopping area.

CHARM and BEAUTY

As tourists drive through Spring, Texas neighborhoods, roof cleaning becomes even more important.  It’s a priority of maintaining the beauty and charm of this unique community. AFFORDABLE ROOF CLEANING OF TEXAS can help protect the Spring charm and beauty with our soft wash approach to roof cleaning. We do not pressure wash the roof because of the damage caused by the high pressure “blasting away” of stains and streaks. The problem is this method also “blasts away” the surface of the roof itself, which shortens the life cycle of the roof and voids the manufactures warranty. ARCOT utilizes soft washing for roof cleaning, which does not damage the roof.  By gently applying cleaning solutions with less pressure than a garden hose, no damage occurs.  We allow ample time for deep penetration of the cleaning solutions to lift streaks and stains while killing algae spores.  These simply relocate and always grow back more quickly after pressure washing.  A clean roof looks much better to you, your family and your neighbors.  In addition, the folks flying overhead in the Goodyear Blimp will greatly appreciate it!

Take a look at how we get it done!

ROOF CLEANING ADVANTAGES

ROOF CLEANING ADVANTAGES

Are you aware of all the roof cleaning advantages like financial savings and practical benefits?  People are pretty committed to, and enjoy advantages of, regularly cleaning things that are important to them. Just think of how regularly we clean our clothes, bodies, the inside of homes, cars, and our pets. At the same time, one of the most neglected areas for residential cleaning is sitting right on top of your home. The roof seldom gets the kind of focused, regular cleaning that the rest of the property enjoys. We tend to forget about the roof and go about our business without ever noticing its appearance.  But roof cleaning advantages is something all homeowners should consider.

Roof Cleaning Advantages

FINANCIAL SAVINGS

Many families these days are looking for more and more ways to achieve financial savings. But what many families do not realize is how much money can be saved through regularly scheduled roof cleaning. You could potentially save thousands of dollars in pre mature roof replacement costs from our SOFT WASH process. This is because the life span of the roof is greatly shortened when it is not well maintained and cleaned through the years. Insurance companies have been known to threaten to cancel policies for neglecting roof maintenance. The dark stains and streaking attracts and retains heat, which increases energy cost and decreases efficiency. In addition, mold and mildew left unchecked results in greater sickness caused by air born pathogens. This slightly drives up health care expenditures, which could also contribute to the spread of mold inside the home.  So roof cleaning results in significant financial savings.

PRACTICAL BENEFITS

Aside from financial savings, there is also the practical side of roof cleaning benefits. Neighbors notice and appreciate the more pleasant view from their perspective. In fact, some neighbors are even inspired to them have their own roof cleaned, which benefits the entire neighborhood. The property values of the entire neighborhood is greatly increased if everyone has a clean roof!  If everyone does it, we’re all being good neighbors!  In addition, there is the greater sense of pride and joy you feel in your own home as you come and go. And, when you have regularly scheduled roof cleaning annually or every two years, it’s a NEVER DIRTY ROOF!  Subscribe to our YouTube channel today for more roof cleaning insight.
