Common Residue and Stains Found on Roof

Time and time again we get questions about the stains and growth homeowners are noticing on their roofs. It’s not as bad as you think…

Most homeowners have one or more of the following on their roof:

1. Bacteria (Gloeocapsa Magna/Blue Green Algae) 

Gloeocapsa Magna has become a major epidemic and growing concern of 80% of the roofs in the United States. This bacteria loves to feed on the limestone filler that is in older style fiberglass shingles.
All it takes is for a few spores to land on your shingles, the bacteria continues to multiply and spread, causing black streaks and stains. These stains will worsen year to year unless treated.

2. Lichen 

Usually white or green in color but can come in brown or yellow tones. Lichen are a mixture of fungus and green algae. Lichen attaches and roots itself to the shingle granites and loosens them from the fiberglass matting.

3. Moss

Almost always has a green color and if left untreated becomes noticeable from the street. Moss will cling to the roof and retain moisture, destroying the roof.

Algae Lichen & Moss need three elements to grow: moisture, heat, and nutrients from shingles. A&J Reliable has invested a year of research to develop a proper cleaning agent that is safe, affordable, and the most effective system around.

Do NOT Use Pressure or Power Washing on Your Roof!

While many roofing companies in New York and New Jersey may claim that it’s the best cleaning solution for your roof, pressure washing or power washing can actually cause more harm than good to your roofing structure. Reasons why you should not choose pressure or power washing for your roof:

  • Pressure washing loosens the UV protective granules and practically guarantees that your roof will fail.
  • Power washing does not kill the algae spores and the algae will return.
  • Water could get behind fascias, flashings and siding causing major damage.
  • Many roofs start to leak after power washing them.
