You may actually be watching your roof deteriorate before your eyes!
Moss is usually the most damaging roof growth because it is heavier (which causes it to grow deeper into your roof to support its weight) and holds more water against your roof.
This burrowing into and holding water against your roof increases damage to roofing shingles and channels water into the underside which causes rotting.
Leaving moss in place can damage the roof and even have disastrous consequences when water within them freezes.
Gloeocapsa magma (or Black Streets), is blackish algae that thrives on moisture when left unchecked, can damage shingles.
Black streaks causes your roof to absorb more heat because its dark black stain reduces the heat your roof can reflect.
Not cleaning Black Streaks increases your cooling costs and can lead to a far worse situation for your roof because Black Streaks (Gloeocapsa magma) can combine with fungus to produce Lichen a more damaging growth described next.
Lichen is a combination of algae and fungus and usually has a light, mint-green color. It doesn’t trap as much water against the surface of the roof as moss, but it can be acidic and has strands that can penetrate into the shingles.
Lichen’s danger lies in its ability to burrow through one shingle to the one below it. Just 1/8 of an inch more and it’s leaking into your home.
We contracted to have the roof cleaned and gutters cleared. Tom explained the process completely and honestly.
Tom and his crew arrived on the scheduled date, did their magic and left my property neat and clean.
Now, I’m enjoying a clean roof with all the moss and stains gone plus clean, functioning gutters, all at a fair price with no BS.
I would definitely recommend them for their professionalism, fair pricing and excellent result.
Tom and his helper came and using non-pressure methods cleaned my shingle roof.
I was very surprised at how it looks brand new again. They did a great job.
Wow, Tom just left after cleaning my roof.
It looks amazing and was done so fast. Clearly professionals at everything they do.
I will be having them come back in the fall to clean my gutters and maybe do some interior painting
Tom did a wonderful job on my home. He was very responsive to my very tight time schedule.
The process was very clean and he was very meticulous with his work.
He not only took care of the roof cleaning but washed the exterior of my home.
I would highly recommend him.
