What type of roof maintenance does my roof need?
In addition to regular cleaning, you need to have a full roof inspection performed every year so you can make any repairs quickly before they cause water damage to your house. Since we live in a coastal area, the storms can cause damage which can be hard to recognize.
Keeping your roof clean and clear of debris will go a long way to preserving the roofing materials over the long-term and the regular roof inspections will prevent big problems for your home.
What type of siding is best for Long Island Homes?
If you're talking about what type of siding stands up to the weather the best on Long Island, the type isn't as important as the brand you decide to install. You could have really beautiful vinyl siding that color fades in a few short years or is so flimsily made it rips off your house during the first storm, so a quality siding is the best to install.
If you want an all-around beautiful, durable, and well-made siding, we recommend quality vinyl siding, polymer cedar siding, or stone veneer from CertainTeed. We install their siding because it's the best brand for our climate in Long Island and their products come with the best warranties.
How hard are solar panels to clean? Will they break if I try to power wash them?
Your solar panels will withstand regular cleaning if you do it right, but their durability will depend on the quality of the solar panels you purchase. Never pressure wash your solar panels, even if you have a quality brand that's warranted to withstand hail and high winds.
Clean them regularly to prevent buildup by using a garden hose and if necessary, use a soft bristled brush to scrub them.
