What we offer is pretty simple. We don’t want or need to make things too complex to try and sound more important. That being said, cleaning your roof tile and removing the roof moss is certainly important. Having your roof tiles professionally cleaned and sealed is also something that can go a long way in helping you avoid all sorts of moisture issues. We can help you in removing moss from patios and driveways as well. If you want to ensure that your walls don’t have moisture issues that are also something that we can help you with. We didn’t want to sound too important, but there are multiple things that we can potentially help you with.
1. Roof Cleaning & Moss Removal Rochester
Can your roof go for years on end without really being cleaned? Yes, there is a chance that you get lucky and no debris really remains on your roof and the rainwater that falls on it is always able to find its way down without causing any trouble. That’s not necessarily something that is common though. Particularly with certain roof designs. Regularly cleaning your roof is not only going to help remove the debris that is currently there to make sure it’s not trapping any moisture in the roof. Cleaning also allows us to spot any moisture problems that could be developing before things get further out of hand.
What Do You Do To Clean My Roof?
Different roofs are going to require different cleaning techniques. We wouldn’t be pressure washing tile or shingle roofs to the point where the water pressure could actually break the tiles and tear up the roof. If we are talking about a flat roof we could have a little more room to be a bit rougher. The same thing goes for moss issues. When we have moss we want to go ahead and remove it and spray a solution to try and prevent it from forming again.
Moss loves to grow in damp places. The problem that we have around here is that we get a lot of rain. So if you don’t clean your roof on a consistent basis moss is going to appear. There is really no way around that. As we mentioned, we use a specialized solution that is made from mostly water and some chemicals that could be used in pest removal services. These are meant to be able to mitigate the growth of the moss. We can adapt those methods to your particular needs especially if you are worried about the type of chemicals that we might be using in your roofing.
How Often Should I Be Cleaning My Roof?
This is certainly one of those questions that we get on a consistent basis. We would say that it’s a good idea to thoroughly clean your roof through professional services like the ones that we offer at least 3 to 4 times a year. A lot of companies could say that you require more or less. The thing is roofs in this area tend to go through a lot of wear because of the weather conditions. It’s always a good idea to ensure they remain in decent shape.
Does The Type Of Roof Affect Anything In The Procedure?
Sure, we are going to deal with flat roofs differently than we would virtually any other type of roof. With some of the tile roofs out we want to make sure that we are extra careful. You can rest assured that we’ll have a proper strategy to be able to effectively clean the type of roof that you have. Keeping in mind that we want to clean the roof thoroughly, but not tear it apart in the process.
2. Roof Coatings Rochester
Here in Rochester, we could say that most people are very much aware of the fact that they need their roofs to be coated. Naturally, this is a procedure that is going to help the roof be able to sustain the amount of water that typically falls on it throughout the year. The proper and regular coating is going to prevent a bunch of things. Mostly what we are going to try to avoid is all of the moisture issues that could come into play. Also, the coating is going to help your current roofing fight off the wear and tear of regular daily activity.
How Often Do I Need To Coat My Roof?
This is a time frame that varies depending on the type of roof that you have and the type of coating that you last used. Therefore, we actually don’t recommend taking to heart a lot of the suggestions that you can find online. Number one, there are a lot of numbers thrown out there. Some people want to say that this is a process that should be done every 4 years and some even want to talk about a yearly coating. Give us a call so that we can provide an inspection for you and give you a more reasonable number.
Does Roof Coating Prevent Moss Growth?
To be 100% honest we have to give a yes and no answer here as well. We could say that roof coating can prevent certain moss growth because ideally, the coating itself mitigates a lot of the moisture in the area that is actually one of the main contributors to moss growth in the first place. That being said, having a properly coated roof is not going to automatically save you from ever having moss grown on your roof.
Best Time of Year To Get This Done
Pretty much in any of the things that you want to do on your roof you’re going to want to have a dry surface to work with. That certainly presents a bit of a challenge with the amount of rain that we get in this area. That’s why we really suggest that you plan things like this way ahead of time. If we can find a couple of days in the spring or the summer where it’s not going to rain that’s the best time. The worst-case scenario is to want to get the coating to settle quickly because you’re already having leak issues, but it just won’t stop raining. That’s a scenario that we certainly want to avoid.
Does The Type of Roof Alter The Coating Procedure?
Of course, the type of roof that we are dealing with is going to play a role in many instances. Working on a flat roof the process of coating can be much easier. At the same time, the wear that the actual coating is going to go through could be greater than in other types of roofs. We don’t do the same thing on different roofs and expect similar results.
3. Patio & Driveway Cleaning Rochester
Patios and driveways can potentially also be covered in moss if they are not properly cleaned on a consistent basis. The build-up of moss is not only going to cause slippery surfaces and add little green vibes to the area. It can potentially heavily contribute to your pavement ultimately deteriorating much quicker. The concept is very similar to what we ultimately see in roofing. Not taking care of these areas and getting things done in time is going to lead to major repairs down the line that are going to cost you more money. Regularly cleaning, therefore, can lead to many benefits and save you a ton of money.
How We Clean
With patios and driveways, there is no question that we can be more open to pressure washing solutions. Yet, the process is very similar to what we do on roofs. The main difference is that we are a little bit more careful on roofs. It’s not that we don’t care about patios or driveways, but these surfaces are certainly much more durable than roofs and in many ways can take more invasive cleaning techniques.
How Often Do These Areas Need To Be Cleaned?
We would say that at least 3 or 4 times a year is a good number. The problem here in Rochester is that with the amount of rain that we get if you allow the surface to go unattended for an extended period of time moss is going to start growing fairly quickly. To prevent something like this you would have to find a way to dry out the surface right after it got done raining. Here though, we could get rain for days in a row. The best way to keep moss out of your patios and driveways and at the same time reducing the wear on these surfaces is to clean them rather regularly.
Cleaning In Rainy Conditions
This is certainly one of the problems that we encounter. A lot of people don’t see the need to clean these areas particularly when it’s going to be raining for days on end. What we typically want to be able to do is to do the cleaning before the continuous rain starts up again. A lot of the time what’s more important is to be able to put in the solution that we use to be able to decrease the growth of moss in these areas. Even if it’s constantly raining we may be able to help.
Quick & Efficient Services
This is not something that is going to take us a ton of time to do. It’s not that we are not going to be diligent in the work that we do. It’s just that for the most it doesn’t take that long to be able to get the job done efficiently. We are saying this because we know that sometimes people put off these services because they don’t want to spend their afternoons or morning waiting on us. We can get the job done quickly, so you can move on to the rest of your day.
4. Exterior Wall Cleaning & Coating Rochester
We are very much advocates of wall coatings and the reason behind this is not just to get you to book our services. We feel that you can obtain plenty of tangible benefits with these procedures. Wall coatings can heavily decrease the impact of dampness and moisture in your walls. We can pretty much all agree that is a real problem in this area that you need to account for. At the same time, certain wall coverings are going to act as insulators. Making homes and other types of buildings much warmer. There are plenty of benefits to that as well.
Wall Coating Benefits
There are plenty of benefits that we could point to with wall coatings. The obvious one is the look and feel of the wall. If you like that type of finish or we are able to find a type of coating that you feel could look great in your home that’s certainly a great first step as far as we are concerned. Also, wall coatings are meant to be great insulators. This is going to help keep the temperature inside the home decent even in colder months. The difference in degrees inside can be felt on your bill at the end of the month as you won’t have to use the furnace too much.
What’s The Best Type of Wall Coating For Me?
There are a ton of options that you can explore. If you go down to a store or you look online there is a good chance that you’ll be limited by the options that a specific place has available. If you don’t like any of the options that you essentially see first hand then there is a chance that you’ll discard the possibility of wall coatings altogether. We want to make sure that this doesn’t happen for you. If you want to explore more options and have a better chance to find something that fits you we recommend that you give us a call.
How Long Does Wall Coating Last?
Wall coatings are literally meant to last for decades. There are different things that can be done to be able to update or ensure that the outer facing part does not look worn out after a couple of years. If you are essentially taking those steps on a relatively regular basis there is no reason why the finish can’t last 10, 15, 20 years or more.
Is This Really An Effective Procedure?
Definitely, there is no question in our mind that this can be a very good option. You are going to virtually eliminate the need for repainting the area for years. At the same time, you are picking up all of the benefits that we talked about beforehand. We would understand if you just couldn’t find a finish that you liked. Because of this then you ultimately chose some other type of option. Saying that this is not an effective procedure and is not at least taking a look at would be a lie.
