Soft Roof Washing in Castleton NY
Soft Roof Washing is coming to Castleton!
Soft Roof Washing means not using a pressure washer on your roof. Castleton, just like many of the other communities in the Capital Region, have seen an overwhelming amount of black roof streaks on their roofs over the last ten years.
Q; What are those Black Streaks?
We at Total Service Pro are frequently asked about the black streaks that appear on roofs in the northeast – 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 north facing side of your roof.
Moss and Lichen can also do damage to you roof
Moss and lichen are two more enemies to the life of 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.
