However, damage can still occur to any surfaces due to poor maintenance, neglect to the property and or low-grade building materials. Routine maintenance per manufacture’s recommendations on the home’s surfaces, should be implemented by homeowners to avoid any potential defects. Prior to washing the home any areas of concern need to be addressed by the homeowner to insure a watertight seal.

Our solution is designed to kill any damaging growths such as algae, moss, or lichen, but in some instances, it may take more time to completely remove the dead growths. Client understands that forcibly removing growths could void their warranty with the roofing manufacturer. Therefore, we do not use any other method than soft washing when washing roofs. Client understands that after a roof cleaning, you may see areas of granular loss clearer than before because there is no longer organic matter hiding it. There is nothing you can do to avoid granular loss after an infection other than monitor the life of the shingle. The Company is not responsible for faded, cracked, or broken shingles.
Touch Ups on roofs - It is understood that there is potential to have some light brown areas, moss, or lichens that remain after treatment on heavy patches of algae. If this occurs, it will take some time for the remaining dead algae to come off with assistance of natural elements such as sun exposure and rain. Clients wait 6 to 8 weeks for the brown areas to fade. If after 6 to 8 weeks, the brown areas remain, you can contact us so we can come physically view the area to appropriately determine the next step. Touch ups are determined after a 6-8-week mark which allows the proper time to determine if a reapplication of solution is necessary to completely
remove the organic matter. Client will be notified ahead of touch up if a service fee is required for touch up service.

Please understand if your roof suffers from oxidation from age and sun exposure, the company can not remove this, we do not use high pressure and we recommend not trying due to the paint will be thinner and will not achieve a uniform look, this could also cause more damage. When a metal roof is covered with debris, or has not been cleaned in years those blemishes may not stand out as much as it would be after it has been cleaned.

Clients understand that the company is not responsible if water enters in or around metal flashing and ridge caps due to improper seals.
