What’s On My Roof?
I know it looks like dirt up there but it’s not. Dirt would wash off with rain, but those streaks just get bigger and darker each and every day. That’s because your roof isn’t dirty, it’s being eaten by an algae called Gloecapsa Magma! It feeds off of the limestone dust that’s put into your shingles to add weight. Moss and lichen also add to the premature death of your roof.
All of these infestations can’t be “washed” off of your roof with rain or a hose. As they feed on your roof, they intertwine themselves around the individual granules that make up your shingles and develop a very hard and dark UV-protective outer coating. Unfortunately, once your roof is infected, it’s never going to get better on its own. Since the algae is a living organism that’s impervious to UV light, it must be eradicated in order to truly rid yourself and your roof of the problem.
Some companies will try to use a power washer to clean your roof. Obviously, using high pressure to clean a roof can severely damage your shingles, which will nullify your manufacturer’s warranty. With our low-pressure cleaning method, we use a proprietary blend of algaecides and fungicides to safely and effectively kill anything living on your roof. We confidently guarantee results for two years.
Since our roofs are typically protecting our biggest investments, it makes sense to keep them properly maintained. Investing a little bit into the proper preventative maintenance of your home’s roof extends the life of your roof. It also helps maximize your curb appeal and the value of your home! That’s why we strongly believe that having your roof professionally cleaned gives you the most bang for your buck in helping you create massive curb appeal!
