Flues Brothers "gentle wash" roof cleaning
& pressure washing.
Save thousands on premature roof replacement add 3-5% more to the value of

Stop the damage that roof staining organisms are doing
to your roof. Algae, lichen and moss are feeding on the organic material
that make up your shingles. In other words, your shingles are their food
source. The longer they are allowed to stay and feast off your shingles
the more damage they will cause.
Roof algae, lichens and/or moss can eat through your shingles and into
your roof deck causing wood rot. When wood rots, moisture gets in through
the cracks and creates a perfect environment for mold to grow. And mold in
a home can cause serious health risks to people and pets. It is something
we all want to avoid.
Insurance companies are increasingly demanding that home owners have their
stained roofs cleaned. That is why it is very important to be proactive
and have your roof cleaned professionally. Insurance companies already
know untreated roof stains will negatively impact the overall integrity of
your roof. And they are worried about future claims for mold removal on
the inside of your home. Roof stains are seen as “risk” and to insurance
companies that always spells money.
Energy efficiency is greatly reduced with roof covered with algae, moss
etc. The roof can no longer reflect the sunlight. The algae covered
shingles absorb heat thereby super heating your attic and increasing your
energy costs. None of us want that!
Having your roof professionally cleaned by us is a cost saving alternative
to premature roof replacement. There is absolutely no reason to re-roof
your home when your roof can look like new again, for a fraction of the
cost of replacement.
A dirty roof distracts from your home’s curb appeal. If you ignore those
ugly roof stains no matter what else you do to the exterior of your home,
those stains will be the focal point of your home’s exterior. If you are
planning to sell your home, cleaning your roof can add thousands of
dollars to your curb appeal.
The integrity of your shingles and your roof can be compromised by these
roof staining organisms. They can actually attract bugs and animals to
your home. And ultimately end up in your attic or elsewhere. Algae,
lichens and moss can penetrate the shingles allowing moisture to get into
the sheathing. This moisture can cause wood to rot and the odor of rotting
wood, actually attracts bugs and animals. In nature the smell of rotting
wood mold and mildew, is associated with food and shelter. Nine times out
of ten when an animal enters through a roof or fascia board they have
chosen to go through where the wood has started to rot.
