Greetings! My name is Steve Hill, and I’d like to discuss with you the dangers of pressure washing your roof. While it may seem like a convenient way to remove dirt and grime, the potential risks are significant. I would like to suggest a safer and more effective alternative: soft washing.

It’s not recommended to pressure wash your roof. Shingles are not resistant to high-pressure water streams.  Using a high pressure (power washing @ 2500PSI) will damage shingles and blast away the granules that are there to protect and prolong the life of your shingle.  This can cause additional damage and could cost you $1000’s in repairs and early replacement.  Instead, consider an alternative method to safely clean your roof.

Will Pressure Washing My Roof Cause Damage?

Pressure washing can damage your roof. It can also cause damage to other parts of your property. The high-pressure water stream can break windows, damage siding, and even harm your landscaping. And let’s not forget about the danger of falling off a ladder or slipping on a wet roof.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But Blue Collar, I’ve seen all these videos of people pressure washing their roofs and it looks so satisfying!” Watching videos of people power washing their roofs may be tempting. However, it is not advisable to risk causing harm or hurting yourself.

Why is Soft Washing a Great Alternative?

Looking for a safer and more efficient way to clean your roof? Consider soft washing! Soft washing uses a low-pressure water and cleaning solution to clean dirt and grime. It is gentle on your roof and does not cause damage. This is in contrast to high-pressure water cleaning. It’s an effective alternative that you should definitely try.

Plus, soft washing is a more thorough cleaning method than pressure washing. Soft washing utilizes a cleaning solution that can effectively penetrate the various crevices on your roof, effectively eliminating accumulated dirt and grime. What’s even better? Soft washing won’t damage your roof or any other parts of your property.

Is Soft Washing Expensive?

Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But Blue Collar, soft washing sounds expensive.” Actually, it’s not! If you want to give your roof a good cleaning without damaging it, soft washing is the way to go. It’s a gentle but effective method that can save you money in the long run by reducing the need for frequent cleanings and costly repairs.

Pressure washing your roof may seem like a quick fix, but it carries the risk of damage.

A safer and more efficient option is soft washing, which won’t harm your property. Not to mention, it’s a cost-effective cleaning solution that everyone can appreciate. In conclusion, I hope I’ve convinced you to ditch the pressure washer and give soft washing a try. Your roof (and your wallet) will thank you. And remember, safety first!
