Roof Washing by Window Gang of Miami FL offers a low pressure roof cleaning process that extends shingle life and completely eliminates unsightly mold, mildew, and fungus. Window Gang Miami, Florida offers roof cleaning for asphalt shingles, cedar shakes, and flat and barrel tile roofs.
What causes roof stains?
Those unattractive, dark stains that reside on your roof are caused by “blue-green” algae, goeocapsa magma. It thrives and grows on asphalt shingled roofs in much of the United States. Growth of this algae usually starts on shaded areas of the roof, and usually on the North side. As the algae grows, it holds moisture which causes the growth process to accelerate. This is the reason the roof stains get worse over time.
Algae spores are carried by wind, birds, squirrels, etc. It is unavoidable. If your roof is clean now, look at your neighbors roof. If they have a stained roof, then it won't be long and your roof will be stained as well.
These stains have caused many home owners across the country to spend thousands of dollars having their roof replaced when they could have restored it to a like new finish for a much lower cost.
Ugly roof stains are not the worse problem; unfortunately it also damages the roof. Algae, mold & mildew grabs on to the shingles removing the granules which protect the roof. It holds water to the surface, and can cause rot & decay under the roof. These unsightly contaminants discolor the roof and will shorten the life of the roof leading to earlier than necessary replacement.
Why should I wash my roof?
Extends roof life 5-10 years
To avoid health issues
If your roof has nasty, dark algae stains, Window Gang can wash your roof to give it a “like-new” appearance. Roof washing can extend roof life, and can help to avoid unnecessary repairs in the future.
Selling your home? A stained roof can change a buyers mind! A stained roof gives and impression that a new roof is old and worn out. The potential buyer may assume the roof needs to be replaced. It may scare them away.
Not only should the roof be washed to improve the appearance, avoiding a possible health risk is another important factor. If there is fungus, mold & mildew on your roof, it is unhealthy and can cause health risks.
Another benefit to roof washing is saving energy. After your roof has been washed, you may notice a decrease in energy costs. Fungus makes under roof temperatures a lot higher, by preventing the reflective granules from doing their job.
