"We are trying to get our house appraised and our real estate agent told us she highly recommended cleaning up our roof and home before doing so. We know the roof is older but we know we still have good life on the roof. What do you think?"
This is a very common dialogue for us at Wash-Rite SoftWashing. When trying to get your home appraised it's no secret that the better it looks the more money they will give you. It's just common sense. Think about it for a second. If an appraiser comes in and sees that your roof is littered with lichen, moss, mold, mildew and Gloeocapsa Magma (dark staining) he is going to put it in his report...The homeowner did not take good care of the roof it shows organic growth/staining and a new roof is going to be needed in the near future. The siding has mold, the trim seems to show rot. This then gets flagged and you have a negotiating point for a drop in your appraisal price.
As we know, roof replacements aren’t cheap especially when you could have had it washed and looking spotless with no damage to the integrity of the shingle for just a fraction of the cost.
Lesson to be learned here is sometimes it takes a little money spending to save or even make money. Call us, the Roof & Exterior Washing pros and let us clean your house up before getting it appraised 203-767-2134. I promise you will thank us after.
