Tips for Cleaning Your Roof

You want to get the most out of your roof, and that requires a little TLC. Follow these easy tips to keep your roof in tip top shape!

Remove Debris

Start by removing any leaves, pine needles, acorns, branches or other debris that has built up on your roof. Such materials can trap moisture on the roof, damaging your roofing material. If there is debris you can’t reach, use a rake or leaf blower. Be careful up there!

Handle Stains

If you notice discolored streaks on your roof, it could be algae or fungus growth. You can remove it with by spraying on a chlorine bleach solution. Do not use a power washer to remove stains as it can damage shingles.

Check the Rest

While you’re on your roof, don’t forget to check your gutters, chimney flashing, fascia and soffit. You can also check around windows for cracks or leaks. Clear out any debris, old nests or stains that you find.
