What to Know About Your Roof
A roof is your first, last and best line of defence against the elements. Despite how important it might be, roofing is often neglected. With every day that goes by, there is debris falling and collecting on roof surfaces. This not only looks terrible but can lead to large-scale issues after a while. More than staying put, debris is carried by wind and rain, often ending up in eavestrough/gutters.
Leaves, branches, needles, seed pods and pinecones are all common denominators in a cluttered roof. On their own, these materials aren’t threatening but in a thick blanket, each piece holds onto moisture. Whether you have a peaked or flat roof, excessive moisture is not a good thing! A damp and covered environment is the perfect place for moss to take hold and spread.
No matter the type of shingle, roofs are susceptible to damage caused by moss. Whether this invasive growth latches onto hard surfaces like concrete, or weaves under shingling, softening decking and causing damage. Leaks, flooding, rot and even infestations are all consequences of a lack in maintenance.
Choosing regular roof cleaning services means avoiding the high cost and labour involved in roof replacement or repair. Any chore that involves heights is easy to put off, but gutter cleaning, window cleaning and roof care can all be left up to our highly trained Gorillas.
Gorilla Property Services: Not Your Average Cleaning Company
Taking a Do-It-Yourself approach to roof cleaning is an almost daily occurrence for property owners. Spotting a bit of moss on homes or commercial properties might mean hauling a power tool onto roof surfaces and pressure washing. This might seem like a good idea, but it can cause water damage when done around weakened materials.
Instead of relying on high-pressure sprays and wire brushes; a basic moss killer or chlorine bleach, our team of experts take a more technical approach to getting the best results for your space. Assessment and inspection are the first steps to a great result. Once any problem areas are identified, they are treated according to their condition and needs.
From here, any surface debris is brushed away and newly exposed areas are inspected again to assess any and all moss growth. Soft washing uses low-flow power tools to strip away buildup and growth without the threat of unnecessary damage. Instead of leaving a mess behind, materials and organics are packed up and carted away.
