Real estate and property professionals crow about curb appeal and how with the right look it can add up to 10% to the value of your home or investment property. Keeping the roof clean is not just for good curb appeal though there are very practical reasons for keeping it clean.
Debris and dirt can absorb moisture so your untidy roof can quickly become a damp environment where mould and fungus thrive; this can interrupt the proper drainage of rainwater. This problem is often worse with tiled roofs due to the rougher surface, which is easier for spores to hold onto. When left untreated this can cause cracking and deterioration of the roof tiles themselves. On a metal roof, eventually, this could lead to corrosion. This kind of damage can lead to further structural problems, maintenance complications, leaks, and energy efficiency decreases inside the home.
If you are tempted to complete the work yourself, remember safety is key and one foot wrong could spell disaster, Horizonline Roofing Adelaide not only has the expertise, but also the equipment. We are all for homeowners improving their properties however, the specialised and hazardous jobs like roofing should be left to professionals like us; it’s simply not worth the risk to your health.
Just because you can only see dirt and debris on one side of your roof, doesn’t mean only half the roof needs to be cleaned; the whole roof will still need to be cleaned. The reason? Airborne particles are hard to see, and if they are attacking one side of the roof, you can guarantee they will be on the other. If only one portion is treated, the unseen spores will quickly move along to the clean side and the cycle begins again. In the long run, you would be looking at further costs and upkeep to the roof, costs that outweigh having the whole roof cleaned at once.
