Have you ever wondered what those streaks on your roof are, and what you need to do about them? Let me start by telling you that it looks worse than it actually is. What you are seeing is roof algae and it is treatable. This organism is airborne and prevalent throughout the United States but even more so in the South because of the humid climate. The algae feeds on the crushed limestone that has been added to the shingles to give them weight. Streaking on the shingles occurs when precipitation washes the algae down the slope of the roof.
If the algae goes untreated for a long period of time it can shorten the life span of your shingles. For example, you may only get 20-25 years out of a 30 year shingle. If your roof is only 8-10 years old but looks like it is older, don’t let someone talk you into purchasing a new roof; chances are it only needs cleaning. Another bit of advice is to steer clear of pressure washing because it can strip the shingles of the protective granules and greatly shorten the life span of your shingles. There are some algae resistant shingles on the market and may be something to consider when it’s time to build or replace an existing shingle roof. Improve your curb appeal and protect one of the more expensive components of your home by having it professionally cleaned when roof algae settles in.
What are the Differences Between Soft Washing and Power Washing? One of the most important differences between soft and power washing is that a soft washing system does not damage your house. Therefore, your house stays clean for a longer time. On the other hand, pressure washing increases the risk of damaging your windows, seals and siding around windows and other areas of your home. When a house is a power washed, screens need to be removed. With a soft wash system, screen removal isn’t required.
