First to bring Soft Roof Washing to Ravena N.Y.!
Soft Roof Washing in Ravena means not using a pressure washer on your roof. Ravena, 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 Capital Region 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 fillers within the asphalt shingles. Typically you’ll find this buildup on the northern facing side of your 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 into your roof. If not properly treated it will 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.
