Roof Wash

The Shingle Eaters are Damaging Your Roof, Costing You Thousands!

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:

  1. Bacteria (Gloeocapsa Magna/Blue Green Algae):Roof WashingGloeocapsa 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:

  1. Moisture
  2. Heat
  3. 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.

Pressure Cleaning is the absolute worst thing you can do to a 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.

A&J Reliable will use a non-pressurized method that dispenses algaecides and soaps to remove the algae, lichen, and moss.

You will see almost immediate results! The algae is gone by the time our truck leaves your property, and over the next 2 to 3 weeks you will see the lichen and moss start to change color, dry up, and flake off the roof. Subsequent rains will help to naturally waste off that remaining debris.

  • Stop the damage and extend the life of your roof.
  • Add value to your home upon appraisal or sale.
