Replacing your roof is a major expense that you probably want to avoid for as long as possible. Although installing a new roof may become inevitable at some point, there are things you can do to prolong your roof’s lifespan.
One of the best things you can do for the longevity of your roof is to invest in regular roof cleaning. At Veteran Exteriors, there are several reasons why we recommend roof cleaning if you want to not only make your roof last longer, but make sure it always looks its best.
For starters, roof cleaning can remove algae, moss, mildew, and other organic growth from the surface of your roof. Over time, these organisms can damage your roofing material by retaining moisture, which can lead to shingle degradation and rot. By eliminating this organic growth from your roof, you can help your roof last longer.
On top of this, roof cleaning eliminates dirt, leaves, stains, and debris that can accumulate on your roof. These materials can trap moisture, prevent proper drainage, and even lead to roof damage if left unaddressed for too long. By cleaning your roof, you ensure water can flow off this part of your home properly, reducing the risk of leaks, rot, and other structural problems.
