Have you ever really inspected your roof? Without the proper maintenance, moss, lichens, and algae will build up on the shingles and can cause leaks and other costly damage.
This is why maintaining your roof is so important. Yet many put off cleaning their roof because, well, it can seem like a hassle.
Well, did you know it doesn’t have to be a difficult or tedious task? In this video by AsktheBuilder.com, learn to clean your roof using a pressure washer. By using the pressure wash method, your roof will look as new as it did when you first bought it. And the process is simple:
- First, choose the right pressure wash nozzle. Too much water pressure may damage your shingles, but too little pressure won’t remove the dirt.
- Remember to stand on a dry portion of the roof. Shingles that are wet are usually dangerous and slippery.
- Also remember to never pressure spray upward, as it will spray underneath the shingle and the water will seep beneath.
- Constantly check the shingles while washing to ensure no damage is being done in the process.
