Why Clean Your Roof?
Eliminate fungi, lengthen the life of your shingles, and reduce energy costs.
What Should You Do If Your Roof Begins To Stain and Why Should You Clean It?
The answer is you should clean it immediately! Here’s why: As the algae and fungus grow on your roof, they eat away the base of the shingle and expand and contract with the outside temperature. This growth and movement loosens the granules, creating premature granule loss, dramatically shortening the life of your roof. A 25-year roof may not even last 15 years if nothing is done.
A fungus-covered roof not only is an eyesore but it is unhealthy as well; do you want fungus spores all over, around and in your home? This fungus can be tracked in to the home affecting people with allergies and respiratory problems. Also, if the fungus moves up under the shingle, it could create other problems such as leaks.
In addition, the fungus covered roof keeps under roof temperatures a lot higher by preventing the reflective capabilities of the granules from doing their job. These soaring under roof temperatures make your air conditioner work a lot harder and increase your electric bills sometimes as much as several hundred dollars a year.
Finally, homeowner associations are becoming more abundant, primarily to maintain and enhance value of the individual homes and neighborhoods. You are not alone in the appearance of your home, therefore, at the first sign of algae/fungus staining, it makes good sense to clean your roof.
Cleaning your roof adds value to your home, reduces energy costs, and extends the life of your roof. And with Brite Roof, we help you accomplish this easily and affordably!
