Will Cleaning My Roof Help My House Sell?


Metal-Dirty closeupIf you are looking to put your home on the market, or even just have it valued, you want it to look its best. Your roof is the largest exposed surface area of your home and is the first thing people see when they pull into your driveway, so keeping your roof surface clean and free of debris is essential to not only maintain the quality of your roof but to preserve the appeal and add value to your home.

ROOFWEST Roof Restorations have over 35 years’ experience in roof repair, restoration and recoating and have witnessed firsthand the difference a clean and restored roof surface can make to a house. Some of the ways a roof restoration can add value to your home and increase the lifespan of the roof materials include:

  • Moss and Mould
  • Structural Issues
  • Make It Look Like New

Moss and Mould

Moss and mould not only looks unsightly, it can damage the structural integrity of any type of roof material and hide issues that, if left, could turn into a very costly fix. Moss commonly thrives in damp and shady environments, establishing its roots on the surface and starting the degradation of your home. Moss can lift tiles, resulting in holes and leaks into your home and constant moisture results in bacteria and mould growth.

Structural Issues

Make It Look Like New

Cleaning your existing roof not only saves you money but can still have a significant impact on your home’s value. Painting or coating your tiled roof could be another option to give your home a new lease on life and using Dulux Acra Tex Fluid Membrane will easily adhere to any small cracks and protect your roof significantly.
