The Importance Of Keeping Your Roof Clean
Keeping your roof clean does more than improve the aesthetic value of your property. From a street view, the roof of your home or business might look cluttered but this debris is more than a sore sight. Branches, leaves and other debris sit on the surface of your roof and act as a foundation for other materials. This foundation attracts new materials and layers them instead of having them roll of the roof. These materials break down and rot if left over time. This break down can cause serious damage to your property and even lead to (the much dreaded) roof replacement!
Your Roof: What’s Up There Anyway?
This question is asked more often than you think! Unfortunately, there is no easy answer. Your roof is a victim of circumstance on a day to day basis. Strong winds and bad weather can make the surface of your roof a feast of unwanted items. The most common culprits are leaves, sticks and even branches. This sort of debris is easy to deal with, but it having collected layers of debris can invite plant growth, such as moss, and even rodents.
