Unlike asphalt shingle roofs, metal roof cleaning is more than just an aesthetic improvement. When you choose to install a metal roof, or purchase a home with an existing metal roof, you should try to get as much information about caring for your roof from the original manufacturer. Metal roofs often times have a very long warranty, but it can be contingent on regular cleaning.
Excessive organic buildup on metal roofs can break down the factory paint on the roof, exposing the metal underneath. Over time, this can lead to rust which ultimately will cause leaks. It is important to keep debris off your roof as well as organic build up.
Cleaning metal roofs is very dangerous. When metal is dry and clean, it can seem like it is safe to walk on when the pitch of the roof isn't very steep. But even the slightest pitch when the roof is wet becomes a serious hazard. If there is mildew on the roof, it may as well be ice. We have equipment and gear that allow us to safely clean your roof.
