Preserve Your Roof with A Step Up

A Step Up May

Your roof is an investment. Depending on the material, it can last generations — but only if it’s properly cleaned. Otherwise, you’ll shell out thousands of dollars early to replace a roof, when you could have spent far less to simply maintain it.

Most homeowners don’t have the tools — much less the skills — to safely and effectively clean their roof. That’s why A Step Up takes care of cleaning for you. With regular service, your roof will protect your home and look its best, for years to come.

Damage Over Time

Over time, your roof begins to suffer. Dirt, leaves, and debris settle on top of your roof, hiding its beauty and reducing your home’s curb appeal.

But that’s not all. Rain, snow, and humidity all take their toll. Soon, mold, mildew, and algae set up shop in your shingles, creating dark stains.

These aren’t just unsightly. The black or blue-green algae that grow in shady areas can absorb heat, and deteriorate your roof by baking it. Lichens put tendrils into your roof, damaging its structure. And moss diverts water, which can encourage the growth of wood rot.

All of these do real physical damage to your roof and shorten its lifespan. Regular roof cleanings remove the mold, algae, lichen, and other problems from your roof — before they can start doing damage.

A Step Up’s Difference

Other companies clean your roof using hard pressure washing. These techniques are harsh and abrasive on your roof, which simply isn’t designed to withstand the powerful force a pressure washer uses.

A Step Up takes a more careful approach. We use the very best technology and cleaning agents, to make your roof look as good as new.

Our primary technique is called soft washing. While soft washing is far gentler than a hard pressure washing, it’s just as effective. It uses eco-friendly and non-toxic cleaning agents to gently — but thoroughly — remove the dark stains, lichens, and other issues from your roof.

The end result is much more than a handsome roof and instant curb appeal. A Step Up gives you peace of mind and the knowledge that your roof will last for years to come.
