Why Should I Schedule a Roof Wash?
PROTECT your INVESTMENT! Roof cleaning can
ADD YEARS to the life of your roof! The dark staining on
your roof is BLUE ALGAE & FUNGUS which feed on the limestone in your shingles. If left untreated your roof will deteriorate, costing you money in repairs. Maintaining your roof regularly will PREVENT PRE MATURE ROOF FAILURE.
Did you know, new roofs come with a 10-30 year shingle warranty? Insurance companies may REQUIRE THAT YOU ROUTINELY MAINTAIN YOUR ROOF when submitting a claim. No need to worry, WE ARE HERE TO SERVE YOU!

Your Roof is what protects you from the elements. It does its job 24 hours 365 days a year. We never think about our roofs health until it is too late. Then, we are left dealing with repairs and maybe even a new roof which can cost upward of $15,000. OUCH! The pictures you see above are roofs that have moss and algae growth. Most of us ignore the black streaks on our roof, even though we are disgusted with the look of it. I was guilty of this myself before I got the proper education. The worst part is most people even believe their roof needs to be replaced. If your roof is under 20 years old this is usually NOT the case. Unless moss overgrowth has already eating threw your shingles.
Did you know that we can safely and effectively wash your roof? Most roofs will last between 20-30 years as long as you take care of them.
(That's why they come with a 20-30 year shingle warranty.)
The first sign of a problem is the black streaking you can see on almost every house in Delaware that is more than 5 years old. Unless, of course, they were already washed. Our humid climate in Delaware is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. The limestone filler in your shingles are the perfect food. That combination, unfortunately, makes an ideal setting for algae, moss and lichen to grow.
Second comes moss. Moss is the green chunky grassy looking stuff. Sometimes it isn't visible from the ground. Moss can start growing between the cracks of your shingles. The bad part about moss is that it has a root system that digs deep into your shingles. This process allows water to penetrate below your shingles causing roof rot and pre mature roof failure. This is no joke.
It is important to be proactive, treating your roof early at the first sign of black streaking.
Your roof is the single most expensive part of your home to replace. Think ahead and schedule regular maintenance roof washing to prevent any damage cause by bacterial growth. Not only will your home always stand out from your neighbors, but you will get a full life out of your roof. The average cost of a roof wash is around 5% of a new roof price tag. This means you could actually wash your roof 20 TIMES OVER before you matched the price of a new roof!
