whats eating your roof

What's Eating Your Roof ?

Pollution, tree sap and jet exhaust are the first things people think of when they see staining on their roof. Many are surprised to find that virtually all roof staining and discoloration is organic matter in various stages of growth and decay. Algae, mold, mildew, lichen, and moss are the main culprits.

The black roof streaks you see are actually algae called Gloeocapsa Magma. This algae spreads itself by unseen microscopic spores, just like a dandelion weed. Its spores are airborne and lie dormant until they land on a hospitable environment with moisture and a food source…and guess what that food source is? Your roof. Shingles made today contain massive amounts of food that algae love to eat – that food being limestone. Yes, it is actually eating your roof. In most cases the algae will take root on the north or west facing roof surface or any area of the roof that is subject to limited sunlight. This lack of sunlight allows the roof surface to remain wet longer, providing a perfect environment for the algae to grow.

This eventually leads to extensive shingle damage and the need for early replacement, costing you thousands.

If you’re thinking about replacing the roof on your home or business because of the streaks, then think again.

Odds are your roof has not reached the end of its life expectancy. The majority of roof replacements are done unnecessarily early and are VERY expensive! If your roof is in good structural condition, but has black streaks (black algae), moss, or lichen patches on it, IT DOES NOT NEED REPLACEMENT. It needs a ROOFTOP WIZARDS Soft Roof Wash !

it is safe to soft wash a roof

Is It Safe ?

At Rooftop Wizards we only use the methods approved by the Asphalt Roofing Manufactures Association and the leading shingle manufacturers.

Roofs must be cleaned with a gentle, soft wash. Rooftop Wizards uses the only soft washing method approved by shingle manufacturers. Our non-damaging technique along with our unique cleaning formula assures to keep your roof clean and algae free for YEARS! Don’t risk your expensive roof by using the wrong cleaning methods!

Rooftop Wizards also takes great care in protecting the landscaping around your home. We cover all bushes, plants and trees and keep them properly protected throughout the cleaning process.

Some companies and individuals think it’s ok to simply clean roofs with pressure washing.

This is NOT ok! Pressure washing leads to damaged shingles, non-uniform color, and DOES NOT prevent algae, moss and lichen from growing back, it actually promotes growth of damaging organisms !
