You’ve seen them on other people’s home and now they are showing up on your roof. What are those black streaks? Is it something wrong with the shingle? Is it something to do with the pitch of the roof? If you’re in North Carolina the answer is most likely it is algae. Most of the time this mold shows up on the north side of your home or areas that are shaded. With less exposure to the sun, the mold and algae have a better environment to grow.

With the algae on your roof, your shingles are less likely to ever completely dry. This takes decreases the life-span of your shingle and can cost you significant amounts of money if you need to replace your shingles sooner than needed.

The good news is that it can be cleaned. The answer is NOT high pressure. That can damage your shingles, the answer is in a low-pressure chemical wash.

Vortex offers an exclusive Low-Pressure Soft Wash Roof Cleaning process that begins with an application of Algaecide to the roof, killing and neutralizing the unsightly algae. Then, a second application ensures that it is 100 percent eliminated. Each application contains a special additive to inhibit future growth and keep your roof looking newer for longer.

Roof cleaning is just a fraction of the cost of replacing your roof. Do not make the costly mistake of thinking premature roof replacement is the only way to restore your home’s beauty.
