We provide a low-pressure chemical application service to remove the dark, streaky, discoloration created by mold growing on your roof. Your roof can look new again.
Newly installed roofs can start to show signs of mold growth within a year or even sooner depending on conditions.
Asphalt shingle manufacturers fabricate shingles with a myriad of synthetic textiles. Due to the engineering requirements regarding uplift and wind loading requirements the manufacturers ADD limestone to increase the shingles weight. Limestone is a naturally occurring element from the earth. Due to its relative abundance it has economical advantages with keeping shingle fabrication costs down. Consequently, limestone is a rich nutrient base for the mold to grow on. Those black moldy streak/stains all over your roof are defined as gleocapsa magma. Gleocapsa Magma is technically a bacteria that feeds off the limestone on your roof. In conclusion once the bacteria has started to grow the mold, moss, algae, and lichens soon follow.
