Roof cleaning requires a specialized soft washing technique. This is the only safe and effective method to remove algae, moss and other buildup without damaging the shingles.
An average shingle roof is designed to last 30 years. Unfortunately, that time is reduced dramatically without the proper maintenance, especially through stormy weather or in highly shaded areas.
Getting your roof professionally washed will help extend the life of the shingles or other roof material, by removing the algae, mold, mildew, lichen and moss that is growing on the surface. If you notice moss or black streaks on your roof, also called Gloeocapsa Magma, we recommend getting it remedied before any substantial damage is caused by its growth.
Falling debris, ice dams, moss, algae, and lichen growth can lead to long-term damage to your shingles. A thorough roof cleaning can help minimize or eliminate the damage caused by these affects.
Removing the dark heat absorbing stains and algae on your shingles will help the roof retain less heat, decreasing the amount of energy required to cool your home in the warmer months.
Moss and algae left unattended on your shingles can infiltrate your roof underlayment and irreparable damage. When the wood begins to rot, moisture can enter the home creating a suitable environment for mold growth and water damage.
