Avoid Costly Roof Replacement
Have areas of your roof developed dark streaks or become dark in color? If so, you are not alone. Many think that this discoloration and roof staining is a result of pollution, dust, pollen or tree sap settling on your roof. Not so! Roof staining is caused by algae growing on your roofing shingles. Other terms for this staining are roof moss, roof fungus or roof mold. This algae is abundant in warm and humid climates, and the climate in North Carolina is extremely favorable for their growth. This algae is actually a strain of bacteria known as Gleocapsa Magma, and tends to grow on areas of your roof that are shaded by trees or get less sunlight, typically the north and west sides of your home.
Safe Non-Pressure Cleaning Process
At Charlotte Roof Cleaning we can make your roof look new again! We use a non-pressure process to apply our roof cleaning solution. We use no more water pressure than what typically comes from your water hose. A pressure washer should never be used to clean your roof. The high pressured stream of water produced by a pressure washer will dislodge large quantities of the protective granules covering your shingles and leave your shingles vulnerable to the elements. This will lead to early roof failure and void any warranty that you may have on your shingles.
Charlotte Roof Cleaning only uses chemicals approved by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA). Once applied, our roof cleaning solution will remove the darkest roof stains in minutes. We do NOT use a pressure washer and our cleaning agent will not damage the shingles in any manner. We have developed a system over the years to assure our cleaning solution does not enter ground water and does no damage to plant life.
Increase Value and Improve Curb Appeal
If you are looking to sell your home, dark unsightly roof stains will detract from its curb appeal and possibly decrease its market value. This can potentially cost you thousands of dollars on the sale of your home. Buyers tend to think that an algae stained roof means that the roof needs to be replaced. With this in mind a potential buyer will factor in the cost of installing a new roof when making an offer on a home.
Cut the Cost of Cooling Your Home
The darkened areas of your roof caused by algae growing on your shingles will absorb more heat from the sun’s rays. This increases the heat in your attic, causing your air conditioning system to work harder to cool your house, therefore increasing your utility bill. Once the dark stains are removed, the roof will attract less heat, which will result in spending less to cool your home.
