The Ballston Spa area’s First Soft Roof Washing Company!
Soft Roof Washing in Ballston Spa, NY means not using a pressure washer on your roof at all. Ballston Spa, 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.
We use a special soft roof washing method that protects your shingles thereby protecting your roof while cleaning and restoring your roof to look fresh and new again. The key to doing this is the soft washing process that we use which is a non pressure roof cleaning. You may not realize it, but even the pressure of rain can wash away those tiny granules that are an integral part of your roof’s shingles. So, imagine what would happen if you let someone use pressure on your roof! Hiring a professional to clean your roof is a must and Total Service Pro will perform a professional soft roof cleaning for you at a competitive price.
A properly maintained roof is an investment in your home as it can extend the life of your roof, lower your air conditioning bill and increase the value of your home!
Soft Roof Cleaning Three Year Guarantee!
How long will my roof stay clean? Gloecapsa Magma typically takes years to grow on a roof that gets sufficient direct sunlight. There are many factors that can change the growth rate. As stated above, this type of algae grows in warm, moist, and shaded areas. Trees that hang over a roof can cause this type of algae to reappear much sooner after a cleaning than a roof with more direct sunlight. Another factor that affects the growth of Gloecapsa Magma is the material shingles are made of. Most modern day shingles contain limestone as a fillant which bacteria feeds off and it absorbs more contaminants; which allows the growth of algae. With that being said, it really depends on your roof and its environment, but we will guarantee it for three years. You will not have black streaks for at least 3 years!
Warning! Never hire a contractor that intends on cleaning with pressure. This removes shingle granules and takes years off the life of your roof. The top shingle manufacturers state this in their literature.
