The black, brown, and green coloration that is noticed on roofs in this part of the country is fungus growth. The primary species of algae on roofs is Gloecapsa Magma. The spores of this algae are transported through the air and settle on your roof. Besides being unsightly, this algae is feeding on your shingles and taking years off of their life. The dark color that is created absorbs the sun's rays, which produces more heat in your attic and requires more energy to cool your home.
North Alabama Pressure Washing, LLC uses a soft wash method of cleaning that is approved by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association to safely remove this algae from your home's roof. Need your roof soft washed? Call us today for roof cleaning services!
