How Often Do I Need Roof Maintenance?

The best way to help prevent any sagging or damage to your roof is by scheduling annual roof maintenance. We typically recommend you have your roof cleaned around the tail end of Fall or Spring because this is when roofs are more likely to have leaves, branches, and debris. And while we typically don’t get much ice or snow in our area, you can also schedule roof maintenance to get ice and snow debris removed from your roof to reduce added weight and standing water.

Roof Cleaning – Roof Moss Removal

Here in the Pacific Northwest, shingles can quickly become stained as accumulated leaves and pine needles decompose on them. Even roofs that are not under a tree canopy can develop unsightly black streaking due to algae and moss growth. In addition to affecting your roof’s appearance, accumulated debris and organism growth can also result in costly issues, such as leaks.

As part of our roof maintenance program, we’ll clean every bit of loose debris from both the roof and the gutters in addition to clearing accumulated moss while keeping your property tidy and your landscaping intact. Because we’re a roofing company and not a cleaning company, we have an in-depth understanding of how to properly clean a roofing system. That means we’ll never:

  • Pressure wash the shingles, as it voids their warranty
  • Use harmful chemicals that can accelerate shingle deterioration
  • Disturb any part of the roofing system, thus ensuring it retains its watertight seal

Is it Bad to Have Moss Growing on Your Roof?

Many homeowners get concerned when they look up and see moss or algae growing on their roofs. Fortunately, algae and moss are non-toxic and they don’t eat away at your roofing as mold does. However, if you do have moss or algae on your roof, we recommend you have your roof cleaned. This will ensure water and debris don’t get stuck underneath your roof shingles and it also provides curb appeal.

Regular moss or roof cleanings should get rid of any debris that doesn’t belong on your roof and dramatically reduces the chances of mold on your home. We will also inspect your roof during cleanings for any necessary repairs to prolong the life of your roof.

Roof Maintenance Inspections

In conjunction with our roof cleaning services, we’ll give your roof a methodical evaluation — both inside and out. Some of the things our roofing contractors will look for include:

  • Water stains, softened plaster, or any other warning signs that your roof has a leak
  • Missing, buckled, cracked, or loosened shingles
  • Damaged flashing
  • Blocked or damaged gutters

Professional Roof Maintenance Services

You might think that roof cleaning is just for keeping up your home’s appearance, but that’s not entirely true. Heavy piles of debris on your roof can add unwanted weight onto it and create drainage problems. Moss and algae can also cause your shingles to lift, leading to water leaks.

Your roof is one of the biggest investments you make on your home and it isn’t cheap to replace. This is why we recommend having your roof cleaned and inspected at least once a year. At IBEX Roof, we offer a roof maintenance program to keep your roof in excellent condition year-round. Contact us today to schedule an appointment. We serve homeowners in Vancouver WA, Portland OR, Olympia WA, and Tri-Cities WA.
