Did you know that algea is the main source of those dark, streaky stains that you see on your roof? It starts as an airborne spore that lands on your shingles and sets its root system underneath the granules then feeds off the organic material in your shingles. Usually, it’s most prominent on the Northern or Western exposures of a roof or in heavily shaded areas. Typically, it starts at the base of the shingles and works its way up. The reason for this is that the base of the shingles is the last part of the roof to dry from rain or morning dew. Algae thrives in a moist environment.
Our technicians spray the infected roof sections with our biodegradable and environmentally friendly cleansing products, which will not harm any of the vegetation around your home and is safe on all surfaces, including, of course, your shingles. Once the product makes contact with the algae, the roots will instantly release. That release enables us to use a gentle, low pressure water rinse to wash away all the algae and any resulting stains. You never want to let anyone use a high pressure power wash on your roof, because that can be very damaging to the shingles. Our rinse is a very low pressure, even less than a car wash.
Let us help you restore your roof back to it’s original beauty for top dollar or value on your home!
