Roofing should be a part of any successful maintenance program but it is often overlooked. It can be difficult to focus on something that is constantly out of sight but even a bit of neglect can end up meaning a world of trouble and a whole lot of unexpected expenses. Boost your curb appeal and overall condition of your space with one phone call.
Professional Ladysmith roof cleaning and moss removal helps to eliminate clutter, treat invasive growth and improve the overall look of your space. Roof clutter not only looks terrible, it encourages moss which wears down on vulnerable materials like shingles and decking. Avoid the heights by calling a Gorilla to handle your residential, commercial or multi-unit spaces.
The Importance of Routine Roof Cleaning Service
On Vancouver Island, the biggest threat to roofing materials is moisture. There is never a time of year that does not put pressure on residential roofs; heavy snow and rain falls during winter, humid temperatures during summer and damp springs and falls, all spell trouble for property owners.
British Columbia is known for its diverse plant life, all of which plays a role in the condition of properties. Tree needles, seed pods, pinecones and twigs are dense, falling onto surfaces and eventually into gutters. Organic materials are designed to collect and hold onto moisture, which is exactly what they do when they are sitting on your roofing.
Damp, covered environments leave moss growing on rooftops. Roof moss is known to weave under, over and around asphalt shingles, causing breakage and curling, exposing the decking underneath. A heavy-handed approach like power washing means wear and tear, creating pathways for water and pests to get in.
The Right Technique & Cleaning Method
In the same way that a proper house wash or exterior cleaning demands an experienced approach, so does roof de-mossing. Traditional methods like pressure washing or scraping with a wire brush can do more harm than good, so our Gorillas use a lighter touch to get the best results for our clients.
Eco-friendly cleaners and disinfectants are used to treat moss and surrounding areas. From here, a proper assessment will dictate the next steps around your space. Depending on the condition of your space, treatments can be catered to fit your space.
In order to get the best results for our clients, each Gorilla offers roof care for any and all property types and can combine services to have gutters cleaned at the same time. Whether you are looking for window cleaning, gutter cleaning or graffiti removal, you can trust a Gorilla to get the job done.
