A healthy roof is one of the most important parts of home maintenance. Why?  Most roofs should last 25-30 years.  Many only last around 15 years. Having your roof cleaned by a professional can literally add 10 years or more to the life of your roof.  The reason for this is that those dark spots and streaks on your roof are NOT DIRT. They are a living organism called Gleocapsa Magma.  These guys actually feed on the limestone (the aggregate) in your shingles. Once they start to breakdown the shingles, other more aggressive algae move in.  We safely kill and wash away the invaders using a low pressure soft washing process.  We will not power wash your roof. This is important because the goal is to save and retain the granules in your shingles, not blast them away! The average cost to replace a shingle roof in the central Ohio area is around $7000.00. Our average cost per roof is around $400.00.  You do the math! Having your roof cleaned will save you thousands or dollars! In addition, a black algae covered roof doesn’t reflect the sun like a roof should, adding to utility costs.  Not to mention a clean roof simply adds curb appeal to your home and peace of mind for you!  If you have any questions, feel free to contact us via email or give us a call!  (740) 990-9811
