The Value of Your Home Can Increase
Your Home Will Be More Energy Efficient
Your Roof Could Last Longer
The fact of the matter is that curb appeal is a very essential part of how much a home will sell for – and how quickly it will sell. A home with a well-maintained roof is much more likely to garner top dollar than a home with a moss-covered, dirty and dingy roof. This type of roof instantly makes a potential buyer wonder what other parts of the home have not been maintained.
When you think of ways to make your home more energy efficient, you likely think of adding more insulation, getting new windows installed, or investing in an energy-efficient cooling system. While those are all great ways to improve energy efficiency, they are not the only options. In fact, cleaning your roof can go a long way toward lowering your utility needs.
Think of it like this: Roofs with tile or asphalt shingles have dramatic properties of heat retention. While this is great if the roof is clean, if the roof is not clean then it can work against you. Your roof can begin to absorb heat and it can be trapped. This will raise the temperature in your home and result in your utility bills rising astronomically. As this happens, your cooling system is also going to have to work harder, which can result in its lifespan being much shorter. Simply cleaning off the roof can prevent these issues.
Depending on what type of debris is on your roof, removing it via power washing can help prolong the life of your roof. For example, if your roof has mold or algae on it, that debris is absorbing heat. Underneath it, a moist, damp environment is growing. Eventually this can eat away at your singles and leave you with significant damage. If not taken care of promptly, this can take years off the lifespan of your roof.
