Roof cleaning is possibly the most ignored yet essential exterior maintenance item for property owners. Not only does conducting maintenance on your roof dramatically improve the curb-appeal of your home, but it will literally save you thousands of dollars in expense from a premature roof replacement. Those ugly black streaks are caused by an active colony of algae and lichens that feed on the shingle material. Infested asphalt shingles deteriorate at a rate that could sacrifice up to 50% of its intended service life. See our FAQ and Black Streaks pages for further information.

ROOF CLEANING AND HIGH LADDER WORK ARE NOT HOMEOWNER PROJECTS
Don't let the big box stores fool you into thinking you can pick up some consumer product, spray it on your roof, and your problems will be solved.
1. It's dangerous. Most homeowners lack experience on ladders, much less working on a pitched roof while hauling equipment and hoses in wet conditions. The risks of injury or death should make this obvious.
2. There are several types of flora that can colonize on shingles. Knowing what you are treating is crucial to how you treat it.
3. The amount of solution required to fully saturate the material being treated is by far unrealistic and cost prohibitive.
4. Finally, you can go through the process of picking up the product, hauling out the equipment and doing the work yourself only to find that your efforts were ultimately ineffective, then pay once more to have it professionally treated.
CONCLUSION: Having your roof professionally cleaned is worth every dime! Signing up for contractor-grade product, equipment, expertise, insurance and guaranteed workmanship isn't just smart, it's a safe investment in the future.
