The Albany area’s First Soft Roof Washing Company!
Soft Roof Washing in Albany, NY means not using a pressure washer on your roof at all. Albany, just like all the other communities in the Capital Region, have seen a large spike in black streaks on their roofs over the last ten years.
What are those Black Streaks?
I’m frequently asked about the black streaks that appear on roofs – what are they and how do I get rid of them? That black streaking is actually a build up of a living organism called Gloeocapsa Magma. It’s a type of algae that is nourished by the limestone ingredients within the asphalt shingles. Typically you’ll find this buildup on the northern facing parts of your house’s roof.
What about Moss and Lichen?
Moss and lichen are two more enemies to your roof. They actually have root systems that grow down into your shingles and embed themselves to your roof. If left on their own to grow and thrive, they will eventually creep under your shingles and lift them up causing damage to your roof and putting the interior of your home at risk.
An Ounce of Prevention Could Save You the Expense of a New Roof!
That’s where we come in. Total Service Pro likes saving people money and we’ve found that by following the recommendations provided by the Asphalt Roof Manufacturers Association, we can professionally clean your roof while maintaining the beauty of your home, protecting your home and not voiding any warranty on your roof.
