A Clean Roof Means Better Drying
Cleaning a cedar shake roof so it can dry quickly after rainfall is critical in maintaining a long lasting roof. Roof cleaning and moss removal keep cedar shakes free of moss, fungus, twigs, pine and fir debris, leaves, etc… which trap and hold in moisture and prevent your roof from quickly drying after any rainfall. By keeping the roof free from these organisms, and allowing it to dry, your roof will not age or deteriorate prematurely thus preventing an unexpected early replacement. In essence, roof cleaning and moss removal saving you tens of thousands of dollars depending on your roof size and type.
Additionally, we recommend removing close, overhanging tree branches so your roof gets proper air circulation and sunlight – all measures that help promote the drying process. Properly caring for your roof through a roof cleaning program, can lengthen the life of your roof, and in some cases even allow you to exceed it’s recommended life expectancy. Alpine Roof Care provides the best roof cleaning and moss removal services in the Seattle area including Arlington, Edmonds & Renton.
Cedar Shake Roof Cleaning Technique
At Alpine Roofcare, serving the Bellevue area including Issaquah, Renton & Shoreline, we pride ourselves in providing you with the most effective and advanced roof cleaning and moss removal techniques. Our roof cleaning service consists of one of two techniques depending on your roof type – either a high flow, light water blow off or air cleaning for older and more fragile roofs.
Composition Shingles Roof Cleaning Technique
Composition shingles have an additional weak spot – the granule and asphalt shingle bond. When moss, algae, lichens & mildew get too prevalent, they break down the bond between the granules and the asphalt shingle. These roofing granules are designed to protect the asphalt from ultraviolet light – which breaks down the asphalt. Our roof cleaning and moss removal services gently clean away moss and other roof debris with compressed air or a gentle washing of the shingle in order to avoid any damage. Once the roof cleaning and moss removal procedures are done, we recommend adding an application of Moss Out to prevent the moss from coming back.
Alpine Roof Care also offers general pressure washing services for your driveway, patios, decks, sports courts, and siding. Whether you’re in Arlington, Edmonds or Shoreline, keep your home clean and safe.
