A clean roof adds curb appeal and puts a polish on the crowning jewel of your home. With expert cleaning, your roof can sparkle with a clean, algae-free roof. Traditionally, many homeowners hire regular cleaners who use harsh chemicals and pressure washers to clean algae from tile roofs. While these solutions can remove algae, they often damage landscaping, degrade tile roofs, and pollute the water table. Pressurized water can also seep under your tiles, through the underlayment, and into the sheathing.
Fortunately, Kelly Roofing has created a safer and more effective tile roof cleaning alternative. After inspecting and repairing your tile roof, soft washing and applying our Roof Rain Time-Activated Algae Prevention Solution helps protect it from returning algae.
Benefits of Using Roof Rain
Roof Rain is NOT a cleaning product but rather an Algae Prevention Solution. Our roofing specialists will first clean your tile roof thoroughly using our soft wash cleaning solution. Rather than use harsh chemicals and a high-pressure hose, our cleaning process uses:
- Soft wash
- Degreasing agent
- 100% natural biocide
- Algae Prevention Solution
Using our soft wash process is extremely effective at cleaning tile roofs without harming your environment or landscaping. This technique doesn’t use pressurized water which could further damage your tile roof. Moreover, it’s a great way to gently remove algae, clean off dark streaks, and restore the luster of your tiles. Once the roof is completely dry, our roofing specialists apply Roof Rain to prevent algae from growing back.
By joining our Roofiversary program, you can get up to 2 years of warranty against algae regrowth. Every two years, Kelly Roofing’s crews will reinspect your roof, suggest any needed repairs, and reapply Roof Rain before algae can regrow. This will effectively prolong the lifespan of your tile roof and save you time and money.
Why Tile Roof Cleaning is Worth It
A dirty tile roof full of algae is obviously an eyesore and can significantly lower your home’s value. By protecting your roof bi-annually, it will always look clean and new. Aesthetics aside, algae growth may slowly compromise the integrity of your tile roof and shorten its lifespan. Over time, algae can cause the protective UV layer on your tiles to come off or dry out, causing your roof to deteriorate faster and fail prematurely. Regular care helps to keep your tile roof in top-notch conditions at all times, which in turn helps to double its remaining life.
While a tile roof can last for more than 50 years, extreme weather and constant exposure to the elements can drastically reduce its lifespan. Prolong the lifespan of your roof by scheduling biannual inspections, maintenance, and cleaning. With Kelly Roofing attending to your tile roof, you can double the lifespan of your roof.
