Have you looked at a portion of your roof, especially on the north side of your home or under heavy shade, and found a tinge of green across shingles? Or do you have black streaks coming down the roof? Both are a sign of weakening of the shingles and their ability to protect your home and can shorten the life of your roof. You might want to take care of these issues before they become a problem, which can affect your house insurance and your standing with your homeowner’s association.
Both conditions are a form of mold. Mold can weaken the roof, make its way into your home and introduce bacteria into your home. Roof stains can affect your energy costs. There are products that can safely be used by professionals to clean roof algae and remove the stains.
Spectrum Painting is able to take care of these issues with their soft washing capabilities, which combines low pressure with special washing ingredients.
Maintaining your roof also provides the basic look of a clean roof, the curb appeal (important if you’re planning on selling your home) and the knowledge that you’ve taken important steps to protect your home. The small cost now to wash and maintain is much lower than the price of replacing a roof altogether.
Call Spectrum Painting today at 973-706-6033 to set up an estimate for a soft wash of your roof, as well as your home, walkways, fences, patios and pool decks.
