"People are unnecessarily replacing roofs in 10, 12, 15 years, just because of appearance. They do not need to replace it, they just need to have it cleaned," says Jackson.

Roof To Curb Cleaning Pros was recently a part of a WCPO, John Matarese’s, “Don't Waste Your Money” segment “Dirty Roof? Insurance can be Cancelled”.
Insurance companies are cancelling policies due to roofs and siding that they consider to be too dirty. As aired in "Don't Waste Your Money" segment on WCPO, Bob Foppe, Cincinnati homeowner, never thought much about the dark streaks on his roof. “I got a letter from my insurance company,” he explained. “They came a day I wasn’t home, took some pictures, and didn’t like what they saw. They said if I didn’t correct it, they could terminate my policy.”
Homeowners can be caught by surprise because roof stains can go unnoticed. They are caused by algae, moss or lichen that is feeding off the limestone filler in shingles. This may eventually affect the integrity of your roof. Roof to Curb Cleaning Pros can help you maintain one of your largest investments by cleaning your roof, soft-washing your house, and cleaning concrete areas for both residential and commercial property owners.
The Cincinnati, Ohio, area is now a highly infected roof algae staining region. Algae does impact the appearance of the roof. The long-term affect of not cleaning your shingles can cause their lifecycle to be reduced by as much as 40 percent. Roofs that have a 25-year rating are being replaced because of cosmetic and appearance in as little as 12-15 years. Don’t waste your money on new shingles because of stain and appearance; they may just need cleaned.
The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturer’s Association (ARMA) recommends a periodic, no-pressure cleaning process that is approximately 90 percent less than the cost of a new roof.
