Roof Cleaning

Algae, lichen and moss can cause damage your roof.

Do you have black lines on your roof or green patches? The black lines may be algae growths known as Gloeocapsa magma, these stains will eventually cause shingle decay resulting in broken or disintegrated shingles. The mold should be removed because it traps moisture and is not good for the roof or wood under it. The green or yellow growths are usually lichen. Lichen can be worse than the mold because the roots weave into the granular roof surface. As lichen grows, the roots expand breaking away the granular surface, removing many years of useful roof life with it.

We use low pressure cleaning methods to gently wash these stains and growths away. The pressure will never exceed that of a garden hose. Algae, lichen and moss can be removed with no harm what-so-ever to your shingles. Our “No Pressure” method, to kill and remove the fungus is approved by ARMA the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association.
