What is roof cleaning?
Roof cleaning is the process to remove dirt, algae and moss from roofs. Cleaning your roof on a regular basis is a critical step to extending the longevity and appearance of your roof. At Oates Roofing Maintenance we provide a totally professional service to seal your roof specific to your roof type.
Why should I clean my roof?
Algae causes more heat to be absorbed from the sun, increasing your energy costs when you are trying to cool your home. Keeping your roof clean will prolong the life of your roof and lower your energy costs, reducing your carbon footprint and saving you money.
Moss and other forms of build often form on parts of the roof that are shaded and can reduce a roofs life expectancy.
Other dirt and debris such as leaves and twigs will also collect on critical parts of the roof and may cause leaking and overall long-term damage to your roof.
Should I clean my roof?
Cleaning a roof involves a slippery surface that can be extremely dangerous and should only be done by a qualified, licensed and insured professional that specialises in this type of work.
Top roofing manufacturers recommend safe, professional roof cleaning to remove algae, moss and lichen. Having your roof professionally cleaned and restored will help your roof last as long as it should and can save you a much greater cost in repair or replacement. After all, a 25-year roof should last at least 25 years!
How often should I get my roof cleaned?
The answer to this question typically depends on the area you live, the amount of shaded areas on your roof, overhanging tree and more. Our cleaning specialists at Oates Roofing Maintenance will advise you of all the factors you need to take into account when deciding on the frequency of your roof cleaning.
