Insurance Companies are Now Cancelling Policies Due to Unclean Roofs

We all know the important roles that roofs play. They provide us with shelter as well as a powerful defense against wind, rainfall, hail, and scorching heat. On a daily basis, our roofs take the brunt of weather hazards and other elements, which play a part in their eventual damage and deterioration. 

In the past, unclean roofs were mainly a problem to neighbors that didn't like sharing their street with dirty-looking houses. Now, however, the consequence of an unclean roof goes far beyond a judgemental look or occasional eye roll. 

Now, insurance companies are getting involved and actually canceling policies for homeowners. 

Yes, really.

Why Unclean Roofs Raise Red Flags to Insurance Companies

Where there is an unclean roof, there are stains. These stains are oftentimes caused by more than just simple dirt - they can be comprised of fungus and moss as well as algae, which can harbor various types of molds. 

Ultimately, these growths can lead to shingle deterioration and wood rot. That means extensive (and expensive) repairs - that insurance companies will end up paying for.

So, it's no wonder insurance companies are sending out people to scope out the roofs of their policy-holders. Ultimately, they are saving themselves from paying out thousands - even millions - of dollars on roof repairs and replacements that could have been simply prevented by roof cleaning.
