As we head into the warmer months, many property owners choose to give their homes a spring clean, finally getting around to those jobs they’ve been putting off over Winter. However, while many people focus on the inside of their home, cleaning windows and the garden, there’s a very important part of your property that also needs to be looked after – your roof! We understand that this can be a risky and difficult job, so we at KinKanDo are here to give you a helping hand!

Why it’s important to have your roof cleaned

1. Improve your home’s curb appeal

One of the first and more obvious reasons to keep your roof clean throughout the year is to improve its curb appeal. Whether you’re planning to sell your house, or you simply want to make a good impression on your neighbours, keeping your roof clean will go a long way in making your house look great.

If you’re planning on selling your house, getting your roof cleaned can be an inexpensive way to increase the perceived value of your residence. Remember, even if your roof is in good shape, a dirty roof will scare off potential buyers.

2. Crucial part of maintenance

Your roof shields your property from the elements, so it’s one of the most important structures that stops rain, ice and wind from damaging your property, not to mention birds and insects who would love to find a cosy spot to stay in your loft.

When issues occur because of problems with your roofing, it’s one of the most stressful (and costly) challenges a homeowner will face, so looking after it is essential. Just because you can’t see anything wrong, doesn’t mean there isn’t a potential issue brewing. When left uncleaned your roof can start to show signs of serious moss and algae growth. Leaving the moss and algae for a long time will enable it to eat through your tiles causing damp and rot to the internal parts of the roof. Not to mention the debris of moss and leaves which can build up and clog your gutters.

3. Avoid water damage

Water damage is one of the main threats to your home and can lead to very costly repairs, into the thousands. A roof that is not cleaned regularly can lead to the pooling of water on the roof, resulting in weakening tiles and shingles that can loosen and fall off the building. When it rains, water can then seep into the house through cracks or holes which have formed due to the of a lack of protection. This can then cause water damage to your flooring and furniture which, if left, can lead to mould growth and mildew.
