As you may have heard us say plenty of times, your roof is by far one of your most important aspects to your home– so we will continue to educate you on how to take care of it. No one likes spending money and that’s a great reason to take good care of your roof. You don’t want to pay for extra damage in the long run. That being said, we would like to bring up a new subject that you may have thought about yourself. Can you repair your own roof? We highly advise you not to and here’s why!
We’ll start out by mentioning that roofing is intense, hot and hard work. But more important than the hard labor, you might even damage your roof further. If you don’t know what you’re doing, just walking on your roof can cause damage to shingles or tiles. If you don’t take things like proper ventilation into consideration, you can cause your roof to start leaking. When your roof doesn’t have the right ventilation, this cause your attic to draw in moisture.
Also, how do you know if your roof doesn’t have more extensive damage than you think? Did you know that by the time you actually notice the leaking on your ceiling, the damage could be far worse than you think. If this isn’t fixed the right way, you could end up having to pay a roofer down the road for way more than you would have if you would’ve brought the smaller leak to their attention.
Our roofers wear special equipment while they work to ensure their safety. If you are repairing your roof without this safety gear, then you are in danger. This could raise the price that you originally intended to pay as well. We know that you don’t have any intentions of attending the ER anytime in the near future over a roof repair.
Our point is, if you try to repair your roof yourself then it can most definitely cause more damage and is hazardous. If you need your roof repaired then give an experienced roofing company a call and ask for an estimate. Here at ONEWAY, they’re free for your convenience!

The green spots on several areas of the roof are symptoms of the algae residing on top of your roof from quite a long time. This growth not only has a tendency to spread to the other parts of the house but also it can eat off several years from the total stated life of your roof system. So it is a good idea to think about it and take action. You can clean your mossy roof yourself by performing these simple steps but if you had never been on the roof before, BEWARE that the job involves safety risks and should better be left to the discretion of professionals of One Way Roofing which is renowned roof repair company in Jupiter.
- Cover all the landscaping including plantation and outdoor flooring with a plastic sheet in order to prevent them from coming in touch with the cleaning chemicals.
- Use a soft bristle brush to scrub the roof gently. Try to remove as much moss as possible. This will in turn help the chemical penetrate easily and work efficiently.
- Now take a bucket and mix equal portions of chlorine and water in it. Fill the mixture in a garden hose and spray it all over the surface paying special attention to the areas that still look mossy.
- Let the mixture stay on the surface for maximum 30 minutes no longer than that.
- Rinse the solution using a garden hose. Rinse thoroughly so that no traces of the mixture remain.
It is important to take all the safety measures while performing the job such as wearing gloves and goggles.
