Keeping your roof clean and well maintained has a number of benefits for homeowners or owners of commercial properties. Not only does it keep your investment attractive and demonstrate a pride in ownership, but it can also keep your insurance company happy. Cleaning, however, is just one part of the process. After a roof has been professionally cleaned, we recommend roof sealing services. Here are a few reasons to consider.
Stays Clean Longer
Once you’ve had your roof professionally cleaned, you will want it to stay that way. Of course, the main reason is that it looks great and makes your home or commercial property look better. Professional roof sealing extends that benefit. It keeps your roof looking clean longer. That translates to fewer times you will need to have it cleaned and less time spent making appointments for cleaning. It also means fewer “reminders” from your HOA about the need for a roof to be cleaned.
Another benefit of keeping your tile roof clean and then choosing to have professional roof sealing services is that it extends the life of your roof. First, it makes your tiles waterproof. The siliconate in our Sealant RS bonds with the tile and creates a “glass mesh” that allows vapor to pass through, but not water molecules. This also serves to dramatically reduce mold and mildew growth. The sealant protects the color of the tiles and pavers by not allowing water transmission of the pigmentation. It virtually eliminates staining that an untreated roof can experience. A longer-lasting roof means fewer costly repairs or replacements.
Increased Curb Appeal
As mentioned earlier, we all want our property to look good. It shows pride in ownership. But there can also be a financial benefit as well if you are considering selling or even refinancing your home. The curb appeal of a clean roof that has retained its original coloring is tough to deny. It’s one of the first things a potential buyer will see. Knowing that you have taken care of the roof and that their maintenance requirements are already reduced can have another payoff as well. Buyers could also presume that you’ve taken care of the rest of the house as well, instilling confidence in their decision to meet your asking price.
Stands Up to Florida Weather
The weather is part of the reason we love Southwest Florida. But if we’re being honest, we have to admit the weather can be brutal on our stuff. The rain and high humidity are a big part of that. The ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun can be especially harsh. We see the paint on cars and buildings fade and lose their beauty. Roof sealing can preserve the look and function of roof tiles. Our Sealant RS is not impacted by UV rays, protecting the color. It also preserves the pigmentation by preventing it from water transmission.
