The Asphalt Shingle Manufacturers Association recommends periodic cleaning of roof shingles. SoftWash is the only method the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association recommends. Power washing your roof may void your roof’s warranty.
Those black streaks and stains aren’t just ugly, they are bacteria that are feeding on your shingles. Those organisms are eating away at your shingles, which is causing your roof to deteriorate prematurely. Removing the algae, mold, mildew and bacteria build-up will expand the life of your roof.
Replacing your roof can be costly, having it Soft Washed is a fraction of the cost and is well worth it.
Those black streaks on your roof can also contribute to increased energy costs for your home. Black absorbs the sun’s heat and removing those dark stains may help keep your energy costs down this summer.
