Roof Cleaning (Non Pressure)
What are those black streaks on your.. roof, you ask? It is a hardy type of algae called Gloeocapsa Magma that feeds on the crushed limestone used in asphalt shingles. Rain spreads the algae down the roof causing the black streaks.
It is estimated that around 50% of roofs are replaced simply because they look old or unsightly. Some estimates have also suggest that as many as 50% of roof replacements were not even needed, and could have been cleaned instead.
Although these streaks do not mean you need to replace your roof, algae will cause it to rapidly deteriorate and fail long before it should. In addition, moss absorbs and holds water and lifts shingles over time. This can cause water and ice infiltration and become extremely destructive to your roof and home.
Black Algae also causes more heat to be absorbed from the sun, increasing your energy costs when you are trying to cool your home. Keeping your roof clean will prolong the life of your roof and lower your energy costs, reducing your carbon footprint and saving you money.
