Your Stained Roof Can Look New Again

Our roof cleaning services will not only remove unsightly roof stains, but also prevent the ugly stains from returning. Once the roof has been properly cleaned and rinsed it should be treated with our stain blocker maintenance coats which should be re-applied about every 2-3 years or at the first sign of the stains return.

The frequency of maintenance coats will depend on many factors such as climate, orientation of the roof and surrounding trees, etc. In ideal situations, maintenance coat’s may only be needed once every five years. But in extreme cases, maintenance coats may need to be applied annually.

Roof stains caused by algae starts out as an area of light discoloration then turns to an unsightly black or dark brown. If not treated, the entire roof will become an even worse as the algae continues to grows and deteriorate the roof.

Our Roof Cleaning Services Help Your Roof Last Longer

Algae growth can cause damage to your shingles and shorten the life of your asphalt roof. Surface temperatures are also increased because of the dark stains. Its growth holds water on the roof’s surfaces which intensify the sun’s ultraviolet rays like a magnifying glass. The increased moisture and UV rays work to dislodge the protective granules and attack the shingles asphalt coating. Moisture, UV rays, and thermal movement from temperature extremes are your roof’s greatest enemies. All three are intensified by the growth of algae. It can suck the life from your asphalt roof leading to premature roof replacement.

Keeping Your Roof In The Dark Can Increase Your Energy Costs

Roofs darkened by algae growth can increase cooling cost as much as several hundred dollars a year in parts of the country where the cooling season is equal to or longer than the healing season. Lighter shades of asphalt roofs are often used to lower cooling cost. As a roof grows darker from algae, more energy is needed to cool your home.
