Cleaning Our Roofs Can Reduce Our Ecological Footprint? We think so and here’s why.

A lot of us are looking for ways to reduce our ecological footprint. One way you can do this with your home, is by maintaining your roof.

Like your car, your roof needs simple maintenance to extend the life of your roofing system. Typical maintenance involves making sure the gutters are draining water down and away from your home properly, removal of moss and other vegetation growth, and resealing seams and materials that crack under environmental conditions. If the roof is not maintained and the water barrier system becomes compromised, you can be in for some extensive repairs and/or replacements of not only the roof but may even include other parts of home in general.

Now you might be wondering how regular maintenance helps reduce your impact on the environment. The materials that make up most of our roofs are non-biodegradable, made from materials like tar, plastics, and rubbers. When an entire roofing system is replaced due to lack of proper maintenance, miles of these materials are thrown into landfills. By ensuring your roofing system is not only cleaned but done so the right way, you are reducing the amount of unnecessary waste.

Understandably, the roofing system is ‘out of site, out of mind’ in many cases, and is not considered until after a problem arises or you notice the gardens growing from the gutters. Let Bellingham Window & Gutter help you with this by setting you up on one of our seasonal service plans. This will take the burden of remembering off of you as a customer, save you money in the long run, and help keep those non-biodegradable materials out of the landfills longer.

How Often Should You Clean Your Roof And Gutters?

How often should you clean your roof and gutters?

This answer can very greatly depending on your location and the environment around your home. Here in the PNW, we recommend a minimum semiannual cleaning. If you are located in a dark, wooded area, such as Sudden Valley, or even just have a lot of trees next to your house, this cleaning may increase to four times a year.

Factors that affect the timing of your roof cleaning:
-Excessive shade
-Heavy rainfall or snow
-Plant debris
-Wind storms

If you are unsure if your home is due for a cleaning, give us a call or text and we can come check it out: 360-325-1882

If all that rain today has your house looking like this, then it’s time to give BWG a call.

This is a surefire sign that your gutters and/or downspouts are clogged. Not only will these waterfalls over the side of your home cause a nuisance, they can cause major damage to your roof, which can lead to mold issues inside your home. Think of this overflow as a check engine light for your house and it should be addressed right away.

Windows not cleaned regularly have a higher risk of etching

Cleaning your windows not only provides for a better view and improves your curb appeal, it lengths the lifespan of your windows.

Windows that are not cleaned regularly have a higher risk of etching. Etching is the erosion of glass that is caused by sand, dirt, salt, bark, sap and other natural occurrences, depending on where you live, and over time can weaken glass.

Let us help you with this task.

Roof maintenance saves you money

Roof maintenance saves you money!!!

Roofing companies make a lot of money on emergency service calls. Emergencies often are billed at substantially higher rates, especially if they occur on holidays, evenings, or weekends. Nobody wants Grandma to get soaked on Easter Dinner because you kept putting off that to-do list and the roof finally gave out.

Waiting for repairs to pop up and make themselves visible to you is a gamble that could cost you, even if it is not an emergency. If your roof turns out to be defective, it could cost thousands of dollars to repair or replace it, not to mention the time it will consume out of your already busy schedule. Hiring someone to inspect and maintain your roof is a lot less than most people think. Most of our customers need only minor maintenance, unless they really let things go, then they might be creeping into the moderate maintenance category.

To help our customers reduce costs and automate the process for them, we offer annual service plans at discounted rates.

Moss on the roof can make things slippery

The most common home injury is falling and anytime you add a ladder or uneven terrain (moss covered roof) your risk of falling is exponentially increased.

Facts about falling:
-Most homeowners insurance policies do not cover you if you are injured on your own property
-In the construction industry, falls from roofs account for roughly 40% of all fatalities, and in 2014, over half of those fatal falls were from 20 feet or less
-Falling is the leading cause of unintentional home injury deaths; it claims nearly 6,000 lives per year, according to the Home Safety Council

Let our experienced team help reduce your risk of injury by handling your roof and gutter cleanup for you and keeping you safely on the ground. Not only do we bring the know-how, but we also have the safety equipment for those especially precarious situations.

Most Insurance Companies Hate Moss

Most insurance companies hate moss. Home insurers know that the roof is a key player when it comes to protecting both your home and your belongings. They also know how damaging moss can be to the integrity of your roof.

If you are thinking about switching the insurance on your home, it is important to know that most insurance companies will require an exterior home inspection to ensure that your home does not have an increased risk of having a claim. Inspectors are concerned with the condition of your roof and typically look things like moss on the roof and curling shingles.

Before you shop for insurance, give us a call/text, and we will come take a look at your roof as part of our free estimate.

Moss Removal

Moss, it's everywhere and on everything! And although it adds to the shades of green that make up our beautiful PNW, it can be a pain!

Moss spreads through pores and thrives in dark, wet environments (hello Bellingham!). It has a shallow-root like system that attaches to your roof's surface and can erode your shingles. Moss also grows under the shingles, causing them to pull away from the roofing membrane and making clean up and removal, a tedious task.

Some companies use pressure washers and/or bleach, which can cause additional damage. These methods also don't get under the shingles and don't prevent the moss from growing back, thus have to be repeated many times throughout the growing season. At Bellingham Window and Gutter, we attack the moss by hand while taking care not to cause more destruction. We also have moss inhibitor available to customers to further discourage regrowth. With our preferred treatment plan, our customers generally only need twice a year maintenance at most.

Why Should Your Roof And Gutters Be Inspected After Winter?



Why should you get your roof and gutters inspected after winter?

1. Identify damage

-Windstorms and wet conditions are two major enemies to the longevity of your shingles and both are prevalent in our PNW winters

-Metal flashing around vents and chimneys can also be weakened and distorted from snow and storms

-Gutters often fill with debris from heavy wind, clogging them, and not allowing proper drainage

2. Prevent interior issues

-Roof and gutter failure invites water inside your home, often resulting in water stains and mold but may even cause degradation to the structure of the home

3. Save on costly repairs

-The longer it takes to address damage, the higher the risk of needing an extensive repair and thus a substantial repair bill

Winter Weather Can Be Bad On Your Gutters



Winter weather can wreak havoc on your gutters, which then can result in expensive damage to anything from your roof to your siding to even the interior of your home. Faulty gutters may lead to moisture build up in your roof and then your attic, providing a breeding ground for mold and causing irreparable damage to drywall.

Protect your home by making sure gutters are kept clean and functioning correctly. Give us a call or shoot us a message to schedule a FREE cleaning/maintenance estimate today!

Keeping Gutters In Good Working Condition

Keeping gutters in good working condition during winter months can prevent costly repairs.

When well-maintained, gutters and downspouts do a great job of diverting water away from your house and protecting your home and foundation from the effects of pooling water. While important year round, the value of a functioning gutter system is never more important than it is during the winter months. As ice expands, the damage to fascia can be severe and a cracked foundation may require thousands of dollars of costly repairs.

Although regular cleanings may be all that it takes to keep things flowing nicely, when snow blanketing a rooftop begins to melt, leaves, twigs and other debris are more likely to gather in gutters, causing clogs and other unexpected problems.

Tending to gutters in cold weather can be an unpleasant chore, but may prevent the expensive repairs inclement weather can cause. Before Jack Frost comes knocking on your foundation, give your gutter system the winter checkup it may need this winter.

Clear gutters of debris. This may be the most unpleasant task, but also the most important. Unless an active clog is causing problems, this task is best left until after a thaw. Professional assistance may be preferred, but the chore can be accomplished without expense using a sturdy ladder, gloves and a garden trowel or gutter scoop (pressure washers may also be employed for this task). Pay close attention to corners and junctions where leaves are likeliest to gather. Gutter covers are a popular way to cut down on the inconvenience of clearing debris from gutters, but regular inspections are still recommended.

Inspect seams and anchors. Check for leaks and make sure the gutters are firmly attached to the house by gutter spikes. No gaps should be apparent between the fascia and the gutter.

Check for structural damage. Examine fascia, siding and foundation for signs of staining, rotting or other water-related damage. If damage is evident, determine the source of the water flow and make repairs as needed.

Check downspouts and diverters. Water should be redirected at least ten feet from the foundation on a downward slope. Confirm water flows away from the house and does not pool. If water is diverted to a rain barrel, consider detaching the downspout from the barrel until warmer weather returns or adding a hose to the barrel drain to direct pass-through water away from the house.

Gutter maintenance can be a messy task and not much fun on even the sunniest of days, but an ounce of prevention can mean the difference between draining water runoff or draining your wallet. Bundle up and be safe.

Hope this helps...call or comment if you have any questions!
