It is no secret that your roof can safely be cleaned!
We get a few calls a year in which a roofing contractor has told a client not to clean their shingle roofs. Why would a roofing contractor tell a homeowner not to do preventive maintenance to prevent premature failure of the roofing system is beyond me. This happens all the time in Savannah and surrounding areas. We at Chatham Property Maintenance can only come up with two reasons. Is this a like of knowledge by the roofing contractor? Or does the roofing contractor want to replace your roof?
Chatham Property Maintenance prides itself on being knowledgeable in many areas of property maintenance. It is no longer enough for us to be knowledgeable, it has also become important for us to educate our clients that there roofs can be safely cleaned without damage. So I know you are thinking, I am listening to my roofer not Chatham Property Maintenance. Well when we tell you that your roof can be safely cleaned here is the evidence from the Asphalt Roofing Manufactures Association. We have linked to the Asphalt Roofing Manufactures Association website so that you can read it for yourself link to roof cleaning process. This processes has been recommended by the asphalt roofing manufactures association for years. Maybe your roofer does not know as much as you think!
Does your roofing contractor want to replace your roof? Of course they did not start a roofing company to clean roofs, they started there roofing company to replace roofs. It is simple math the average cost to clean a 3000 sq. ft. roof is $600 the average cost to replace a 3,000 sq. ft. shingle roof is $15,000. So you be the judge.
Note* Roofs should not be cleaned with a pressure washer. We recommend hiring a professional to clean your roof but you can also do it yourself.
As you will see in our roof cleaning demonstration more pressure comes our of your water hose than our roof cleaning pump. Our roof cleaning equipment is designed specifically for the purpose of cleaning roofs.
