What’s growing on your roof?
Have you noticed dark stains on your roof? Well those stains are actually a particular strain of algae spores called Gloeocapsa Magma, and it’s alive and spreading! The algae can quickly spread, creating dark spots and streaks. Roof algae along with moss and lichen can reduce the life span your shingles. Algae spores are carried from roof to roof through wind, birds and small animals. It will only get worse!
The spores find a perfect environment for growth in your shingles, attacking the asphalt at the granule base first. Once the granules dislodge, accelerated deterioration will occur. Roof To Curb can remove the algae and bacteria that causes roof stains and help restore your roof shingles to their original appearance.
Types of algae and bacteria found on your shingles
Blue Roof Algae – Creates black streaking, covering your shingles protective granules.
Green Roof Algae – Appears black at beginning stages and grows into a green shade on lighter roofs.
Green Moss – Thick and spongy, stronger root system than algae, Spreads with thick root system,
Lichen – White spots and strands, moss in its early stages.
Fungus And Shingle Mold – A small Microscopic spore that lands on your roof. It spreads by feeding on your roof.
And Its Spreading!
We now live in a highly infected roof algae staining region. The limestone filler in your shingle is the cause. We have the solution, The ARMA, (Asphalt Shingle Manufacturer Association) recommends a periodic cleaning process that is affordable and can remove those unsightly stains and restore your shingles original appearance. Roofs that should have a 25 year life span are being replaced in as little as 12-15 years because of cosmetics. This is why up to 50% of the roofs in Cincinnati are replaced unnecessarily, when all they really needed was to be cleaned. We are trying to get the word out, Don’t waste your money on a new roof because of stains and appearance. We can make them go away in a few hours for a fraction of the costs of a new roof.
