WHAT’S EATING MY ROOF?



Those unsightly dark streaks that are seen on the north or shady side of a roofs shingles are a Mold/Algae that is responsible for around 80% of roof replacements Due to premature shingle failure. It traps heat, And retains moisture, Which causes your shingles to break down...your roof to get hotter, and your air conditioner to work harder because of the dark black color that covers your roof. And as we all know black "Absorbs Heat" and white "Reflects" making your house hot...and your energy bill go up.

The correct term for this ugly stain is called (GLOEOCAPSA MAGMA) which is very invasive, meaning it will transfer from one side of your roof to the other, or even from one house to another. The more black streaks there are, the faster it will grow. Although most are concerned about the aesthetics or curb appeal, the black streaks are actually eating away at the limestone filler in the asphalt shingles, which in time will loosen up the granules and they will begin to fall away much faster than they should, taking away years of the expected life of your roof. The black streaks also draws in more heat and retains moisture more than the “clean” spots on the roof which will also shorten the life of the shingles.

Curb appeal is another big consideration to anyone who may be looking to sell their house. A potential buyer may truly believe they will need to replace their roof for thousands of dollars, when in reality it only needs to be professionally cleaned by Soft-Touch Roof Cleaning for a fraction of the cost.
