Spring is finally here, and it’s time for a clean slate and a new start. While you may be cleaning out your garage and closets, make sure to not forget about your roof. Your home is the most valuable investment in your life.
There are 3 reasons you should give your roof some love.
1 – Wet leaves can cause leaks
April showers can bring May flowers but also lots of rain to the roof. Leaf accumulation in cracks and nooks can lead to roof leakage. They can build up in nooks and crevices and eventually cause water damage.
2: Mold and mildew can cause damage to your roof
Mildew and algae can grow anywhere in warm and humid climates like Florida. Dust and dirt particles from trees can build up on your roof, which can lead to mildew and algae on the tiles. Although trees are great for shade, they can also create a lot of debris that could cause problems.
Calling a professional to cut the trees and remove the branches from your roof is the best option. After that, you can hire a roofing company that knows how to clean any type of roof. You should ensure that the company is fully insured and has a good reputation. Pressure washing the roof is a job that they will be required to do. It is important that they are skilled and experienced in order to ensure that no tiles are damaged or cracked. Rolled tile roofs are also eligible for this double-duty.
- Your roof is beautiful. Make it shine!
Make sure to clean your roof as part of your spring cleaning. It doesn’t matter what kind of roof you have. It adds beauty to your home. It shouldn’t look dingy or dirty. Your home is your sanctuary. You should take pride in your home’s exterior and interior, maintaining the landscaping, trimming the trees, and taking care of the foliage. It is there to protect you. It should be kept clean, beautiful, safe, and secure.
