This “Before” photograph was cleaned for a Mortgage company requiring a certification. When we “Quick Serviced”
this roof we were told that the roof was 3 years old and that it had no debris on it. It was 17-year-old second layer roof without any maintenance since it’s
This “After” photograph was cleaned for a Mortgage company and received a certification.
More often than not, a 5-Year Roof
Certification generally requires work done before the certification
will be issued. In those rare situations where a 5 year roof
certification is issued without any work orders needed…
Those situations are when the roof is well cleaned
and maintained since that roof was built. If the roof was new less than
5 years ago, if the inspector sees no reason for any work orders or if a
work order is ordered for a 5 year roof certification. That work order
will generally be ordered as follows.
JET CLEAN™ affectionately refers to this “5-Year
Roof Certification” process as the cleaning process to get the
certification as a “Punch-Out”.
The “PUNCH-OUT” Steps are as Follows:
- Clean Your Roof =
Totally clean and strip all of the moss, fungus and debris while
washing that old Gray color right out of the roof. Leaving a new
looking roof that will puzzle even the best, pickiest and even the
most difficult appraisers.
- Repair Your Roof
= Repair the roof "as needed" with the least amount of
expense put into the repairs. The greatest return on your client’s
investment will be realized while still considering the proper and
most efficient ways to repair the problems with the roof. In some
situations we do find that there are "no" repairs required at all for
the 5 Year Roof Certification to be issued. Generally, the age of
the roof is less than 12 years since it was built.
- Treat Your Roof =
Not available for composition roofs because oil base products dissolve
Composition roofing and water base treatments don't absorb into the
roof.. JET CLEAN's experience is that roof treatments for Composition
roofing is a waste of money.
- Clean All Surfaces
= JET CLEAN™ also cleans most surfaces (i.e. Concrete, Blacktop,
Driveways, Sidewalks, Pool Decks, Sport Courts, Wood to Vinyl) to a
"as new" appearance. Lightly clean the Siding of your home
assuring not to take the paint with the moss, while still leaving
that freshly painted look. Cleaning and Treating the Fence
will also keep it new looking.
For those of you who are the “Homeowners”
and looking for a 5 Year Roof
Certification? JET CLEAN™ respectfully advises that you wait on
the certification until you need one. If the home inspector for the
buyers asks for a certification, at that time get the certification. The
certification will not benefit you personally in any way at all. The
Roof Certification is only “for” the institution that will be
financing or carrying the loan for your home’s future owners. Of
course, clean and take care of your roof for the presentation for the
sale of your home. Get a basic idea of what you might be in for, in
repairs. Do not treat your roof before the repairs are done unless
gave you a very good idea if you can certify the roof without any
repairs. Our job in regards to you the “Homeowner” is to get the
roof to certify without spending a small fortune…
