Spring is a naturally huge season for home improvement and cleaning projects as homeowners look to shake off winter’s cold and look forward to the heat and activities of summer. One of such projects to consider for this season is roof cleaning. This is because taking the time to engage in proper roof maintenance and cleaning provides your home with a number of benefits that you can appreciate for years to come. These include:
Ensuring the Lifespan of Your Roof
Not every roof has the same exact lifespan since there are many factors that affect the service life of a roofing system, including the roof materials, the weather conditions in your area and the maintenance level. Cleaning your roof this spring can help add more years to the lifespan of your roof, which in turn, can save you a lot of money in the long run.
Boosting Your Home’s Curb Appeal
Nothing kills the curb appeal of your property faster than an unsightly roof full of ugly patches and spots can. In fact, you might be surprised that in many cases, an unattractive roof doesn’t even need repairs, just a thorough cleaning to restore its former glory. Moss, algae and lichen cause dark streaks that look more pronounced on light-colored roofs and make it look like it’s in a sorry state of neglect and disrepair. So, before you schedule a roof repair job, consider getting it cleaned first.
Keeping Your Energy Bills Lower
The darkening of your roof due to long periods of exposure to the harsh elements and moss growth can cause more heat to be absorbed and trapped. This does not just shorten your shingles’ life, but will also increase your energy bills during summer as you try to keep your house cool. On the other hand, a clean, light-colored roof reduces heat absorption, which means less energy required for indoor cooling.
