It won’t just help prevent damage from roof stains, but will also enhance your curb appeal and keep your roof looking brand new.

Roof Cleaning FAQ

Over time, moss and algae build up is common on a roof after being exposed to humid Georgia weather. A roof cleaning usually takes care of this issue and restores the surface. However, sometimes the moss and algae are covering much worse structural issues that will require roof replacement. We can assess your roof and recommend the best option to have it looking like new again. 

Roof cleaning focuses on removing and killing any moss and algae that is growing on the surface. We use a light pressure washing machine that scrubs the roof and a solution that prevents further moss and algae from growing. 

While moss and algae aren’t likely to damage your roof shingles, they do prevent prevent shingles from working at their best to improve the energy efficiency and temperature control of your home. The discoloration of moss and algae also damage your curb appeal by making your roof look dirty or damaged. We recommend annual roof cleaning to extend the life of your roof and make your home look great. 

How Roofing Damage Occurs

Roofing damage is not something to take lightly, as it can cause severe issues to plague your roof. When you do experience roofing damage at your home, it’s important to immediately schedule roof repair. It’s common for harsh thunderstorms to cause roofing damage, as the onslaught of rain, hail, and snow may attack your roof’s structure. In these conditions, you may see snow cause ice dams, intense rain lead to roof leaks, and hail lead to cracking shingles. 

It’s also normal for roofs to deteriorate in condition over time, especially if you have neglected maintenance. Older roofs may develop holes and cracks easier when presented with severe weather conditions or extreme temperatures. 

Another common form of roof damage that most people underestimate is plant growth. Most people don’t understand how damaging this can be for your roof over time, which is why they let algae or moss run rampant on their roofs. Here are the types of plant growth to look out for: 

  • Roof Algae: Algae is attracted to warm, humid climates, and can quickly spread over the roof. Taking the form of black roof stains, it can easily harm the appearance of your roof, even causing streaks to appear. Algae can take root inside shingles, causing cracks and holes. 
  • Roof Moss: Moss can be found on roofs with damp, shaded areas. Moss can implant under shingles as well, where bacteria and mold flourish. This may cause cracks and leaks to appear in the roof over time.
  • Roof Lichen: Lichen is a type of relationship between algae and fungus. When they grow together, they can attach to the roof strongly. Lichen can quickly build up and spread, causing damage to shingles. Lichen is best removed with a very strong pressure washer.

Why Clean Your Roof? 

Any type of growth or build-up on your roof is not a good sign. Roofs need to be kept clean to ensure they can function properly and protect your home well. An accumulation of any kind of debris or plant growth may be detrimental to your roof, which is why we strongly recommend that you take part in soft wash roof cleaning. It’s as easy as scheduling service with the friendly Columbus roof cleaners at Perimeter Roofing.

Prevent Damage

The most important reason to schedule shingle roof cleaning is to protect your roof. Plant growth is one of the most destructive elements that can cause severe damage to your roof. Combat this by scheduling an appointment with our roof cleaners, where any build-up will be washed away.

Increase Curb Appeal

Keep your roof looking brand new with roof cleaning. We especially recommend this if you’re trying to sell your home. Buyers don’t want to see old roofs riddled with algae growth or roof stains. They want to see a strong, stable roof that will last a lifetime, which is why cleaning moss off a roof is important.
