Gutters are an important part of your home’s weatherproofing system.
Let us help you to reduce that ever growing maintenance to do list…
To do their job, gutters and downspouts must be clear of leaves and debris. Clogged drain outlets or downspouts will cause a backup, producing an excessive amount of weight that will eventually pull the gutters loose from their mountings., potentially draining water into your crawl space or penetrating the walls of your house causing an unwanted moisture problem.
Consider for a moment, the amount of impervious surface area your roof has. That is a whole lot of water run off. It is important that you maintain a free-flowing system. Directing water flow away from your house properly will protect your foundation, keep stains from developing on your siding, keeps walkways ice-free in the wintertime and helps prevent water penetration.
Moss can be a troublesome nuisance in the Pacific Northwest Region. Moss and algae grow actively in wet weather. Fungi is found on rooftops, decks, lawns, walkways, typically the north facing or shady sides of outdoor structures.
It is far more than just an unsightly condition. Algae, fungus, mold and moss cause stains and accelerated deterioration of the roof surface underneath, shortening the life of the roof.
Fortunately, there are measures you can take to reduce the growth. A regular moss treatment should be a maintenance priority; it is an inexpensive way to keep moss from ever becoming evident or causing any damage.
In the event that long-term neglect has taken place, we can remove larger accumulations prior to treatment. Moss is kept under control by spraying a liquefied zinc mixture to the affected areas of your roof to kill the moss, followed by the application of a granular product that slowly dissipates to help prevent new spores from germinating on your roof’s surface between applications.
