Clean that Roof Before Selling – Palos Park Cook County, Illinois

Tuesday, March 29th, 2016

The owner of this house is getting it ready to put it on the market. Realizing that curb appeal is of the utmost importance, the wise homeowner had his roof cleaned by a professional roof cleaner. If perspective buyers were to see the dirty roof as shown in the before image, most of them would not even bother scheduling a showing. And for those that may be interested, they would likely submit a low ball offer due to the bad condition of the roof.

Fortunately for this home owner, that scenario will not happen. With the roof cleaned as shown in the after image, the house has great curb appeal and the owner can expect near or at asking price. If your roof is dirty, has stains or green moss growing on it, be sure to have it treated whether or not you are selling. For such a small inexpensive investment, it’s a no-brainer decision.

Call a Roof Cleaner Before Selling your House – Roof Cleaning St. Charles, Illinois in Kane County

Sunday, July 12th, 2015

Before you list your house for sale, you may want to first contact a certified roof cleaner. Good curb appeal is critical when selling a house. If your roof has dark streaks and stains from algae or is covered in moss, an inexpensive roof cleaning will do the trick. Benefits of having your roof professionally cleaned include:

  • Enhanced curb appeal resulting in more traffic from buyers and less market time.
  • Good curb appeal can add as much as 10% to the value of the home.
  • Removes the potential of a prospective buyer demanding a price reduction due to a “bad roof” which may delay or even kill the deal.
  • A dirty and streaky roof makes the home look older than it really is.
  • A clean well maintained home makes for a good neighbor with the community.

The Realtor that listed this house highly recommended to have the roof cleaned and the homeowners did just that. In doing so, they quickly sold their house and saved thousands of dollars by not having to replace the roof or by paying the buyers credits due to the roof’s appearance.

Roof and Siding Cleaning in Naperville Illinois DuPage County

Sunday, August 3rd, 2014

A lot of people think that the streaks and stains on a roof are an indication that the shingles are old and need to be replaced. Or they wrongly believe that they are caused by creosote seeping out of the shingles, jet fuel dirt or acid rain. The truth of the matter is that air born algae (mold) lands on the roof and feeds on the material in the asphalt shingles. The technical name for the algae is Gloeocapsa Magma. It grows mostly on the north and west facing roofs which receives the prevailing moisture and shade. The dense areas of the algae communities are evident by the black streaks and ugly stains which are a protective sheathing that the algae excrete. This home located in Naperville, IL was infested with roof mold. Much to the owner’s excitement  we eradicated all the roof mold and cleaned away the streaks and stains. Best of all the cost was a mere fraction of what a new roof would have cost saving the owners thousands of dollars in the long run.

The roof of this property near Romeoville, Illinios had the black streaks and stains caused by algae. The owners looked for a roof cleaners directory and found us. Many owners will contact a roofing contractor and ask them if their roof needs to be replaced. The honest roofing contractor will explain that it’s not old, it’s mold and to contact an established roof cleaner. Does your roof have similar streaks or stains or other organisms such as green moss or gray lichen? All of these are harmful to the shingles and should be removed as soon as possible.
