Some homeowners work on the premise that Lakeland roof cleaning is expensive and as such, they can well without it. After all, if it’s just cleaning the roof, surely the rain will wash away the dried leaves, right? They can also clean the roof themselves. All they need is a ladder and a broom to sweep the dirt, dust, grime, etc. Forget about the mold and algae. Those don’t really affect the integrity of the roof.
This is the farthest from the truth. Having your roof cleaned by a professional is, perhaps, the most important maintenance work you can have done to your house. Professional roof cleaning removes not only the dust and grime, but also the algae, lichen, mold, and many other things that grow on your roof. These things will affect the integrity and stability of the roof. When neglected, they can cause massive damage that can render the roof useless.
Do you mean to say that paying for roof cleaning is more expensive than roof repairs or replacements? Do you mean that you prefer to pay tens of thousands of dollars for a new roof than $350 to $500 to get it cleaned by a professional? There is no worse thing that can happen to a homeowner than realize he needs a new roof. Even before you receive the quotation from the contractor, you already know you are going to spend a significant amount of money on it.
Your home (and thus, your roof) is your biggest investment. You will be paying for its mortgage for the next 25 year or so. If it is an inheritance, all the more that you should take care of it. Not only does it hold sentimental value, but you must also maintain it well so you don’t have to buy a new home or renovate it from the ground. Proper care will maintain the stability of your home. A simple Lakeland roof cleaning will make it last for a long time.
And when it comes to taking care of your home, this is where home insurance can get a bit murky. Some insurance providers can cancel or increase your policy if you fail to keep your roof clean. Home insurance does not cover negligence. If your roof collapses because you haven’t been taking care of it (and home insurance investigators will see that), the company won’t cover it.
The proper maintenance of your roof increases the curb appeal of your home. It raises its value in the market. So, make sure to call a professional Lakeland roof cleaning company to have it inspected and cleaned.
