What Causes Roof Stains?

Those unattractive, dark stains that reside on your roof are caused by “blue-green” algae, Gloeocapsa 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 of the roof and can cause rot and decay under the roof. These unsightly contaminants discolor the roof and will shorten it's life leading to earlier than necessary roof replacement.

Why Should I Wash My Roof?

  • It improves appearance
  • Can extend roof life 5-10 years
  • To avoid health issues
  • Energy savings

Window Gang can remove those nasty, dark algae stains, to give your roof a “like-new” appearance. Washing your roof can extend your roof life and you can possibly avoid future health issues and unnecessary roof repairs.

If you are wanting to sell 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 will assume that a new roof is needed. A new roof is very costly, and can scare a buyer away.

Not only should you wash your roof to improve the appearance of your home, you should wash it to avoid possible health risks. If there is fungus, mold & mildew on your roof, it is unhealthy. No one wants these contaminant spores all over their home.

Another benefit to roof washing is saving energy. After washing your roof, you may also see a decrease in energy cost. Fungus on a roof keeps under roof temperatures a lot higher by preventing the reflective granules from doing their job.
