What is power washing?
Power washing, or pressure washing, is the application of high-pressure water spray to a surface such as wood, stone, brick, concrete, aluminum siding, roofing shingles and others.  The pressurized water removes unsightly mold, mildew, and dirt stains bringing back that original new look.

How do I know if I need a new roof?

Also, consider the age of your roof.  If it’s nearing the end of its expected life (about 20 years), it may be time for a new installation.

Can a roof be installed over the existing roof?
Yes.  A new layer of shingles can be installed over the existing layer provided that only one layer exists and it is in fairly good condition.  If two layers exists, both must be removed.

How long does it take to replace a roof?
It depends on the size, pitch, design, and if a tear off is required.  Most residential roofs can be installed in three days.

How often should I have my gutters cleaned?
At least twice a year.  If you have many trees by your house you should clean them 3 to 4 times a year to prevent major damage to your roof, walls, siding, and foundation.  Clogged gutters allow rainwater to accumulate and weigh down and eventually pull gutters loose from their mountings.
