Learn about the benefits of washing your Roof
A roof is the largest single surface area of your home and when stained with algae, moss or lichens, can single handedly destroy the beauty and curb appeal of even the most beautiful of homes. Regardless of how beautiful your landscaping, no matter how clean your windows, dark algae roof stains become the main focus of everyone’s attention. A hardy type of blue-green algae called Gloeocapsa Magma typically causes roof stains. It literally takes only one algae spore to land on your shingles and take hold. From there, the growth and spread is continuous and steady. What is most important to realize though, is that the problem is not just cosmetic. Roof algae are a living organism that continues to live and spread by feeding off the limestone filler in your roof shingles and the moisture that exists on top them. These shingle granules are vital to the health of your roof and home because they deflect UV rays and heat away from your roof surface. If these granules are gone or covered with algae you will have a hotter attic and higher air conditioning bills. You will also have to replace your roof considerably sooner, spending an average of over $10,000 to replace your roof.
