Don’t replace your roof…revive it!
Safe And Effective Removal Of Roof Algae
Those unsightly black streaks and stains on your roof are actually a form of algae called “Gloeocapsa Magma“. This type of algae thrives in the crushed limestone used in many types of asphalt shingles here in the Midwest. It is most commonly found on the north side of the roof, which gets the least amount of sunlight. We can effectively remove these stains and renew your home’s curb appeal!
Low-Pressure: The Key To Safe Cleaning
Using low pressure is more important here than any other part of your home’s exterior. Our unique “soft wash” methods allow us to achieve spectacular results using garden hose pressure, typically 50-100 PSI. We do NOT use a pressure washer when cleaning roofs. We only use methods and cleaning solutions approved by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturer’s Association (ARMA). Please take a moment to review a bulletin issued by ARMA by clicking HERE.
Extend The Life Of Your Roof! Really!
Believe it or not, those damaging streaks and stains on your roof are contributing to higher cooling costs. The blacks stains create “hot spots” which absorb sunlight instead of reflecting it away, resulting in premature deterioration of your shingles. If left unchecked, this type of algae will spread and hold more moisture causing a damage risk to the wood underneath, not to mention resale value and curb appeal.
