Roof Cleaning For Insurance Inspection
A Branford Home Before Cleaning The Roof
The customer is changing insurance companies and the inspection of the house resulted in some changes be made. The reason I was working on the house is they requested the roof be cleaned so that water would not get under the shingles and or the roof's life span be shortened. The insurance company also requested that the trees near the house also be pruned or removed. This will let in more light and help prevent the mold and mildew from reforming.
This first picture shows the worst accumulation of mold moss and lichen has formed under where the tree is. It also gives me a chance to show the before and after picture when the growth has washed off in the rain. The greatest change shows up after a couple of rain storms that washed the dead moss and mold off the roof. It just brightens up. Right after the application some of the stuff on the roof stays and has a dirty brown link since it is still clinging to the roof. Since no pressure is used in the application process the final effect to be fully visible takes some time to show up.
