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