Roof Cleaning or Replacement?

Most roof contractors do not want you to know that your dirty roof shingles are dirty and need to be cleaned, not replaced. If you see black streaks on your roof, mold, mildew, lichens or moss, call Westchester Power Washing at 914-490-8138 first. More than likely, your dirty roof needs to be soft washed. Soft washing your roof will remove black streaks, mold, mildew, lichens, moss and of course, dirt.

dirty roof, roof cleaning, house cleaning, roof soft wash, roof clean, dirty roof, before and afterOften times homeowners think a dirty roof needs to be replaced. If you call a roof contractor first, more than likely they will tell you to replace your roof. Why? Roof contractors are in the business of replacing roofs, not cleaning roofs. Furthermore, roof replacement can cost as much as ten times the price of having your roof cleaned. If your roof is not more than 25 years old, then you may just need to have your roof professionally cleaned.

Black streaks are caused by  roof algae. The technical term for roof algae that cause the black streaks on your roof is Gloeocapsa Magma. Algae feeds on the crushed limestone used in asphalt shingles. As rain washes down your roof, it spreads algae down your roof causing the black streaks you see. Black streaks cause shingles to fail prematurely by not preventing the shingles from reflecting heat properly.

Research has shown 50% of dirty roofs are replaced because of black streaks not because they are damaged.

Unfortunately, when homeowners see a dirty roof, they think it is time to replace their roof. This is usually not true. Research has shown more than half the roof replaced in Westchester County, NY were replaced because of how they look and not because of their condition. Simply put, more than 50% of roofs need to be professionally washed, not replaced. In fact, this means, that people who replace their roof have simply wasted their money.

Roofs in Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess County, New York experience a lot of humidity, rain and snow. This moisture promotes algae to growth on the roof. The algae creates the black streaks and the roof looks dirty, old and damaged. As stated before, this is just a dirty roof not a roof in need of replacement.

How do you know when a dirty roof need to be washed or replaced?

5 Tips on Why Home Owners in Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess County Should Pressure Clean Their Roofs with Westchester Power Washing

We’ve all heard the saying before “home is where the heart is” and “there is no place like home.”

As I find myself browsing for a new place to buy, I have come across information on everything from mortgages to home insurance. But the one thing that took me aback the most has been roofs. That’s right roofs.

After having to deal with the workers who are fixing the roof at my parent’s place, I decided to look further into what would be best to do as a homeowner (or future homeowner in my case.)

Would it be better (and cheaper) for my folks to change their roof all together?

And then I learned about roofs getting pressure cleaned and I was hooked. Here is what I learned.

  1. Why should a homeowner do a pressure roof cleaning? Well, for starters buying a home is huge, lifelong investment, that comes with a lot of stress. After investing all that time and money in a beautiful home, it makes no sense to jump the gun and completely change your entire roof. An in-depth wash will give your home a nice pick-me-up. Moreover, my friends at WestchesterPowerWashing.com have advised me that a thorough pressure cleaning will eliminate black stains from any roof and other nuances including mold removal roof, moss, and magma. Once the wash is complete, the roof will look brand new and the biodegradable chemical used in the wash will keep any roof looking fresh and clean for at least one year.
  1. Let’s explore the difference between changing a new roof versus getting a pressure cleaning. Assume that your home has a 900-square-foot roof. A roof replacement for a home like that can easily escalate to a very expensive figure. A roof wash by Westchester Power Wash is far less in cost. That is definitely worth a Westchester roof cleaning !
  1. One interesting thing I learned is that the shingles on roofs are a food source to algae, lichens and moss. They love to eat the organic materials in the shingles. This unfortunately can lead to these little creatures eating into your roof, leading to wood rot. Once the wood rots, mold can get into your home very fast leading to health concerns. Calling Westchester Power Wash for your roof can save you this entire headache.
  1. Did you know insurance companies can terminate your policy if you have a nasty roof? It goes back to mold getting in your roof and home. Insurance companies are encouraging homeowners to maintain their roofs clean because roof stains and overall issues with roofs will cost the insurance more money in claims.
  1. Last thing that comes to mind, but definitely not the least, is that algae covering shingles are known to absorb heat and this causes your home to be hotter and your air conditioning bills to be higher. No one wants that especially in the hot summer months ahead.

If you are looking for more information on getting a pressure cleaning for your roof, make sure to check out my friends at WestchesterPowerWashing.com. Ask for Pete and let him know you read this blog. He will certainly hook you up because “home is where the heart is.”
