As a new homeowner, you may be wondering why it’s important to pay attention to your roof. The bottom line is your roof plays a critical role in maintaining the structure of your home. It provides protection from rain, snow, and the debris that comes along with the forces of nature. If you’ve been living in our house for years and haven’t cleaned your roof, it may be time to start. A regular roof cleaning can prevent moss and mildew accumulation that can create a hazardous environment for you and your family. Clearing your roof of dirt and mold will also extend its longevity, as it won’t decay with organic matter build-up. It can also help avoid early roof replacement, which can be costly and a headache to work with.
