Raleigh Roof Cleaning and Roof Stain Removal

One of the major developments in roofing over the last 20 years has been the introduction of fiberglass shingles to replace the older asphalt or ceramics. While these shingles are certainly cheaper and less likely to receive damage, they also harbor a hidden flaw. Raleigh, NC has a very humid climate, and this climate fosters the growth of a particular algae: Gloeocapsa Magma. This algae causes the black, streaking stains you see on dirty roofs in Raleigh and the surrounding area. It is very aggressive and spreads very quickly. In addition to the damage caused by this algae, moss and lichen can also accumulate on your shingle roof. Unfortunately, the limestone filler in your shingles, coupled with the humid climate here provides an unlimited food source & the perfect environment to keep this algae thriving unless the appropriate actions are taken.

Removing Algae from your Raleigh Roof

As a roof cleaning company in Raleigh, we know one more thing about this algae that is even worse than the unsightly stains: in addition to ruining your home’s curb appeal, they are also ruining your roof. The algae feeds on the limestone filler in your shingles. This, in turn, causes the granules in your shingles to loosen and fall off. Maybe you’ve even seen something that looks like soil or dark mud at the bottom of your downspouts or in your gutters. That isn’t mud; it’s actually large quantities of shingle grit that has eroded from your roof. As a roof cleaner in Raleigh, we have the perfect solution.
