Vancouver and Richmond houses are under attack!
Vancouver and Richmond houses are under attack 24/7 by forces we have little control over, but must cope with to keep the value of our homes at their highest level.
The facts of being on the ocean, under a cloudy sky most of the year, within a forest and at the 49th Parallel all contribute to the changes we see in our houses and our neighbor's houses.
What is the black and green coloration that appears on all the concrete, walls, roof, chimneys, patios, walkways, driveways, and bricks?
What makes the slime on the areas that are shaded or wet?
What damage does this do to my property?
Why do I have to paint the wood trim so often?
Why is the roof turning color - its concrete!?
Why do the other roofs also turn color when they are shingles or cedar, or metal, or slate?
Does this lower the value of my house?
Does regular cleaning maintenance raise the value of my house?
