Do you have streaks on your roof? If yes, don’t be too alarmed, it’s not your fault or a result of poor home maintenance because it happens to most homeowners at one time or another. Those nasty looking dark streaks across your roof are caused by the bacteria gloeocapsa magma, simply put, algae growth and usually happens on the north side or shaded area of your roof. There is very little scientific evidence that algae growth will harm your roof but many roofing professionals say that besides being ugly to look at it actually can shorten the life span of a roof.
Hard Hatters’ roof cleaning service is simple and straightforward.
- We manually remove any loose debris from your roof and gutters.
- We use a chemical spray to kill the algae. Sometimes two chemical applications are necessary to remove heavier than normal algae growth.
- We use a low-pressure wash so we won’t damage your roof to remove both the algae and chemicals.
- We walk the perimeter of your home and clean up any loose debris.
And that’s all there is to it. Give us a call for more information and a quote for this service.
