Determining Whether to Replace or Power Wash Your Roof

Many homeowners fear that the only solution to their dirty, faded roof is a complete roof replacement. This misconception can end up costing them thousands of dollars for a new roof, when a professional power wash could have restored their roof to like-new condition for much less. Perhaps your roof looks in need of cleaning or repair and you have been asking yourself if your roof needs to be replaced. But before you jump to a premature total roof replacement, consider the benefits of a professional roof cleaning.

PerfectPowerWash-Roof-Washing-Apr15Soft wash roof cleaning eliminates and removes those ugly black streaks on your roof. Black streaking on your roof is not dirt, but evidence of an Algae growth called Gloeocapsa Magma. Do not let that Algae growth convince you that you need a roof replacement—it is actually very treatable. An application of Algaecide during a soft wash roof cleaning will kill the algae and neutralize it so it cannot continue to grow and spread.

Soft wash roof cleaning helps to extend the life your roof. A professional roof cleaning, like the Low Pressure Soft Wash Roof Cleaning process offered by Perfect Power Wash, features a double application of Algaecide. After the first application kills the algae, a second application applies an additive that will prevent and protect against future algae growth and will keep your roof looking newer for longer.

Soft wash roof cleaning protects against weakened roof shingles. Algae growth thrives on moisture and, if left untreated, adheres to the shingles of your roof. This causes your shingles to lose their protective limestone filler, which weakens them and makes them more prone to blowing off your roof. Missing or damaged shingles is a major concern for any homeowner, as it leaves your roof bare and more susceptible to leaks or other damage.
