There is really no telling how many times people end up overpaying to replace their roofing because they believe the only way to update their current look is to basically start over. What usually happens though is that tiles, shingles, or whatever type of roofing you have will wear down over time naturally. If you are not able to provide the area with proper maintenance even relatively new roofs can look years and years old. Having said this, we believe that a good pressure washing procedure every so often could go a long way in keeping your roofing in decent shape.
Can We Clean All Types of Roofs?
This is a bit of a tricky question so we are going to try and get through it the best way that we can. Yes, we are going to be able to clean tiles, shingles, flat roofs even. The thing is we are not going to be open to cleaning every single roof that we come across. Here is why, if we are looking at a roof that we know has a lot of leaks and having us clean it is going to do more harm than good we may want to back off.
How Do We Pressure Wash Tiles?
This is a process that we believe should only be performed by the actual pros of the trade. You have to be on the roof directly for one. Tile roofs are not exactly flat. So that is basically the first challenge that you are going to have to deal with. Number two is knowing how much pressure can be applied. That phrase can apply to how much time you actually want to spend standing on the tiles. Obviously, the amount of water pressure that you are going to want to apply to the tiles themselves is also something that you are going to have to think about.
For people who have floor roofing, they probably know that water is not exactly something that you want to add too much of. Especially if we are talking about a roof where puddles are going to be intact even two days after it rains. Still, pressure washing is one of the best ways to ensure that you are able to remove all of the dirt and things that build up. It is important to ensure that we are using the right amount of water so that we don’t flood the roof, but actually remove all of the debris that builds up.
Does Washing Tiles & Shingles Differ?
It does, depending on the current state of the shingles, tiles, metal roof or whatever it is that we are going to be working with. That is why we want to make sure that we know exactly what we are going to be cleaning before we go on ahead and start spraying water. There are certain types of roofs where we are going to have to be more careful with how we get up there and things of that nature.
