Does your house have the ugly roof stains on it or even worse, Lichen and Moss growth on it? Don’t replace that roof just yet! It CAN be cleaned! Using our no-pressure cleaning application, a pressure washer never touches the roof. Our cleaning process and cleaners are recommended by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association. All our roof cleaning comes with a 2 year unconditional guarantee. We use our unique non-pressure system to apply the cleaners so there is never any damage to your roof.
The stains are actually an algae or fungus called “Gloeocapsa Magma”.The fungus is feeding (Yes Eating) the limestone filler that’s in the shingle, shortening the life span of your roof, and can also affect “Heat Transfer” of the roof, causing larger electricity bills in the summer by making you’re A/C unit run longer.
Does Your Roof Really Need Replaced?
If you are one of many homeowners who are thinking about replacing your roof, or know of someone who is, make sure the roof needs to be replaced.
Did You Know?
50% Of Roofs Are Replaced Due To The Way They Look.
Some roofing contractors don’t know what these black streaks are, saying it’s the asphalt showing through the shingles or that it’s water stains. Some contractors may know it’s algae but tell you it can’t be cleaned without damaging the shingles. In either case, they may tell you that the roof needs replaced. This is not true if your shingles are still in good shape. The algae can be killed and removed properly without damaging the shingles using a low pressure chemical application (recommended by shingle manufacturers).
Signs Of Aged Shingles Needing Replaced.
- brittle or crumbling shingles
- excessive amount of shingle granules in your gutters
- bottom corners of shingles curled up
- wavy, warped, or heaved shingles
- very thin or loose shingles
If you are still unsure about the status of your roof, we will be glad to evaluate it for you. We will not clean shingles that need replaced, because cleaning the roof won’t solve the problem if the shingles are aged. On the other hand, if you call a roofing contractor, you may not get the whole truth and may be persuaded into replacing a roof that only needs cleaned.
Why should I use non-pressure washing for my roof?
Non-pressure or low-pressure washing will not remove the granules from the shingles or destroy them. The soaps that are used kill the mold, mildew and algae and then remove them from the roof. The warranty on your shingles will remain intact as well. This is unlikely with pressure washing.
