Roof Cleaning Westwood NJ

 

Roof stains are not only an eyesore, they diminish property values and can lead to long term damage. The black stains are cause by an algae that helps retain moisture that can provide an environment for moss and lichens to grow on your shingles. Where the stains are mostly an appearance issue, the moss and lichens can destroy your shingles and result in early roof replacement. The weather in Westwood New Jersey creates a perfect breeding ground for all three of these growths.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It the case of a shingle roof, it could mean spending as much as $10,000 for a replacement 10 years before the warranty is up.  A properly installed shingle roof can provide leak protection for up to 30 years. However, nothing is maintenance free and that goes for your roof shingles.  A roof cleaning generally runs about 5% to 10% of the replacement costs.
