Whether you’re looking to sell your home, or just want to spruce up the look of your property, roof cleaning is an excellent way to increase your home’s curb appeal. Few things will put a damper on the appearance of your home more than moss, lichens, and algae, as well as create maintenance issues down the road. Your roof should be a compliment to your home, but when neglected, it can quickly turn into the sore spot of the property. With West Coast Roof Cleaning, the fix is simple. Have your home looking new again with one of our custom-tailored cleaning solutions for your specific roof type!
Take a look at some of these before and after pictures to see what kind of a difference we can make for your home’s curb appeal.
If you’re thinking of putting your home up for sale, or it’s already on the market, roof cleaning can make a huge impact on the value of your home, as well as the buyer’s perception. As the saying goes, you only get one shot at a first impression, so don’t mess it up. One of the first things a potential homebuyer will see is your roof.
Having a moss-covered, or lichen-stained roof will immediately send the buyer two messages. The first is that the roof is going to need to be replaced, and with the average cost of around $10,000 the potential buyer will typically devalue the home by the price of re-roofing. Secondly, the buyer starts to question how well the home has been maintained, before even setting foot in it. In a competitive real estate market like Vancouver, the value of curb appeal cannot be underestimated. Homebuyers tend to focus on the problems they see immediately, not the bigger picture, so don’t let something like roof moss or lichen distract your potential home buyer!
A dirty roof is like a weak handshake, instead of seeing the beauty of your property, potential buyers are already focusing on their first negative impression. Cleaning your roof won’t necessarily add value to your home, but it will prevent customers from unfairly devaluing your home.
West Coast Roof Cleaning has specific Curb Appeal packages for customers with their homes for sale. We recommend a roof cleaning to remove roof moss and algae and a gutter whitening package to make sure your home is looking sell-ready!
