Why Roof Cleaning/Treating?

Put simply, to save you money. Why spend up to 10 times as much to replace a roof that still has years of life left when you could just have it safely restored back to it’s original beauty and effectiveness? Our cleaners are safe for your roof. In fact, they are recommended by ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association). Our cleaning method is also safe for your roof; we never use a pressure washer! Be careful choosing a roof cleaning contractor, often a particularly low price is indicative of a poor-quality job. In this case it can mean severe damage to your roof!

What Are Those Black Streaks?

For many years, roof discoloration caused by algae has been observed throughout the United States and Canada. The discoloration usually has a brown to black appearance, and may be mistaken for soot, dirt, moss, or tree droppings.

The primary species of algae being observed is called Gloeocapsa Magma. This type of algae is contained in and transported through the air, and tends to collect and grow upon roofing structures. Natural pigments produced by this algae may cause a white or light colored roof to gradually turn brown or black. The algae discolorations should not be confused with moss or tree droppings, which typically produce only localized discolorations.
Besides looking bad, this algae also feeds on the limestone filler in your shingles. It is literally eating away at your roof!

Got Algae?

Call THE CLEANING DUDE! We have a proprietary method of killing the algae, washing, and treating your roof using the standards and procedures set forth by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA). This is a safe, NON-PRESSURE, chemical wash that will NOT harm your roof or your landscaping. And, because it is approved by ARMA, it will NOT void your roof's warranty!

Should I Replace My Roof Or Have It Cleaned?

If your roof shingles are still under their warranty period (typically 25 to 40 years) and still in good shape, call us to have it cleaned. If there are any leaks due to minor shingle damage or a few missing shingles, call us anyway and we can make simple repairs first! Pay a fraction of the cost of a new roof!
