Advantage Roof Cleaning posted a blog entry in Advantage Roof Cleaning's BlogMost homeowners don’t realize it but cedar shake roofs need to be periodically cleaned. Believe it or not a well maintained cedar roof will last a minimum of 40 years. But again the key is to keep the cedar roof cleaned. It is similar to our teeth. If we don’t periodically have our teeth examined and cleaned, we get buildup on them. After a while, our teeth start to discolor and decay hence cavities. It’s the same principle with cedar shake roofs. Cedar has natural properties to protect it from rot. However if organisms are allowed to infest the cedar, those organisms start to break down the cedar causing it to rot and decay. Go here for the rest of the story.
I was on Angie's List reading customer reviews of roof cleaning companies. I came across this customer review which once again illustrates the wrong way to clean a roof. Out of respect I will not mention the company name. I am not so interested in speaking out against a company but do want to speak out against a bad practice. Customer quote: "I wasnâ€™t too pleased with the service. They cleaned the roof. Instead of spraying something onto it to clean they used a power washer and left a mess behind on the back of the house. They knocked off the pebbles that were on the roofing squares and they are still coming down the gutters. I have had to clean off my patio deck and the furniture from the pebbles." This customer is concerned about the mess due to the dislodged granules "pebbles" from the asphalt shingles caused by the damaging water pressure of the power washer. Unfortunately this customer now has much bigger concerns which include a shortened life span of the shingles, a shingle warranty that is now void and increased utility bills since the shingles ability to reflect the suns energy has been compromised. All caused by power washing. All this damage could have easily been prevented if the contractor used a soft wash process. The need to educate homeowners cannot be stressed enough about the importance of selecting only roof cleaning professionals trained and certified by the Roof Cleaning Institute of America in the art of low-pressure soft wash cleaning and restoration.
