Your Roof Cleaning Checklist:
- Make sure my roof will be cleaned with safe, low-pressure. Not "pressure-washed".
- Find a licensed, insured company who can gently clean my asphalt shingles without damaging them.
- Find a Top Rated ★★★★★ cleaner that my neighbors love!
- Ensure my landscaping and other property will be protected during the cleaning.
- Make sure the company is an expert in the field, so that I won't have to replace my roof anyway, because of an overly-aggressive cleaning.
- Get a 2 Year Cleaning Warranty with FREE touch-ups in case the stains return.
- Work with a local McDonough-based company, who serves Stockbridge, Hampton, Conyers, Covington, Locust Grove, Jackson and more, so they'll be nearby if I ever need to use that warranty.
- Get a bullet-proof satisfaction guarantee, so that I know I'll love the results!
A Dirty Roof Is Like a 'B & S Ball' On Your RoofSo you might be wondering what those black streaks on your roof are in the first place. To put it simply, it's a living bacteria which multiplies and grows by feeding on the limestone granules of your shingles. It's like a 'B & S Ball' on your roof (or 'a Bachelor's and Spinster's Ball (Dance), usually held in rural Australia for the purpose of helping singles meet each other). The bacteria thrives in our humid Georgia weather. It grows and multiplies, trapping moisture on your roof, wearing down the shingle material, so that you'll need to fork out (or 'pay') for a new roof long before you ever expected.
Now, the insurance companies - cunning as dunny rats (or, 'as clever as a rat living in a toilet stall') - have figured out that your algae-infested roof will wear out much faster than it should, and so it probably won't be long before you get that dreaded letter from them, threatening a cancellation of your policy. The shingle manufacturer's, have also figured this out, and won't honor your roof warranty either. Your roof will cark it (or, 'die'), and you'll be on the hook for a new one. Talk about stiff bickies! (literally, 'stale cookies', ie 'a bad turn of events')
