Consider Regular Roof Cleaning to Protect Yourself and Your Roof!

Regular roof cleaning not only saves you money by maintaining a fully functional roof, improving the appearance of your property, catching any minor repairs before they become serious issues, and extending the lifespan of your roofing system, but it also protects you and your family.

When you hire us for a roof wash, we are offering disinfection of exterior parts of your home including your entry door, doorknobs, doorbell, railings, walkways, driveway, and mailbox.

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

1. Viruses

Our solution kills most viruses like the coronavirus that are transmitted through touch and live on surfaces on the exterior of your house and are often touched by people, including you and your family.  

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

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.
