Why Clean Your Roof?

Your roof is one of the biggest investments you make in your house, and our roof cleaning service is one of the simplest, least expensive ways that you can preserve and protect your investment. Our roof cleaning service attacks the dirt, algae and moss that have settled on your roof shingles, cleaning them off safely and improving your home’s appearance and your roof’s efficiency and extending its life.

As roofing technology has improved, roofing shingles have been constructed with limestone fillers that both reduce their costs and improve their overall efficiency. The downside to the limestone is that it is a favorite food of an algae called Gloeocapsa Magna. The algae grow on roofs, usually on the shady, damp side where the sun won’t kill it. That’s what the black marks are that you see when you look at your roof. The longer it’s there the more it grows, and the worse it makes your roof look.

Mold, Fungus and Algae Ruin your Roof

Even worse, as algae, mold and fungus eat the limestone, the important ceramic granules that coat your asphalt shingles and help reflect the sun’s rays eventually loosen and fall off, reducing your roof’s efficiency and raising your cooling costs. Roof cleaning washes the algae away, restoring your roof to its original beauty and extending its life.
