  1. Home Articles What’s Eating My New Hampshire Roof? Category: Roof Cleaning There is no easier way to improve and maintain the attractiveness of your New Hampshire property than to keep the roof and exterior properly cleaned. However, many homeowners either ignore this type of roofing maintenance, or don’t understand how damaging those blank stains can be to your roofing system. You may even find yourself asking, just what are those black stains on my roof, anyway? What’s Eating My New Hampshire Roof? The blackened areas and streaks that you see on your New Hampshire roof making it look “dirty†are actually the result of algae and bacteria that are feeding, growing, and spreading on your roof. In addition to making roofs look unsightly, this type of algae can damage your New Hampshire roof and reduce its warranted lifetime. This premature degradation of your roof can end up costing thousands of dollars over time, especially if you have to get a roof replacement. Another factor to consider is your health. The algae and bacteria on your roof can become airborne and spread – not just to other roofs but also into the air that we breathe. Airborne contaminants have the potential to cause discomfort and health issues for people with asthma and allergies. So aside from protecting your roof and improving your curb appeal, roof cleaning in New Hampshire can also improve the quality of your indoor air! Frequently Asked Questions – Roof Cleaning & Algae Question: What are those black streaks on my New Hampshire roof? Answer: The black streaks are a type of algae called ‘Gloeocapsa Magma’ or simply “Black Algaeâ€. Question: Is this type of algae harmful to my roof? Answer: Yes it is. As this mold grows it feeds on the limestone filler on the outer base of the shingle causing the shingle granules to dislodge reducing the life expectancy of the roof. Question: I have a 30 year architectural shingles on my home. Without treatment for roof fungus how long can I expect my roof last? Answer: That’s a tough question to answer due to many factors but in general a 30 year roof life expectancy can be shortened by up to 50% if not addressed properly. It is highly recommended that you contact a New Hampshire general contractor that offers roof cleaning services if algae, moss, or lichen is visible on your roof. Question: I have a wood roof that is covered in moss. Can I have this moss safely removed without damaging the roof? Answer: Yes you can, but be careful. If you are thinking about removing the moss yourself, think again. Wood shake roofs in New Hampshire are very expensive to replace, and if you don’t know what you are doing it could end up costing you plenty. The recommended method would be to hire a New Hampshire roof cleaning professional, but again, be careful. Make sure the New Hampshire contractor has proper credentials such as: experience working on wood roofs, license, insurance, local references, and before and after photos of completed jobs. Question: How much does it cost to have my roof cleaned? Answer: There are many factors that will determine the cost of having your roof cleaned. Rule of thumb is having your roof cleaned by a reputable roof cleaning contractor should be roughly 12% of the cost to replace a roof. Example: New roof cost = $ 7,500.00/ Roof cleaning = $ 900.00. Buyer beware! If you receive an estimate that sounds too good to be true, you are more than likely dealing with an inexperienced roof cleaner. Question: How long will my roof stay clean? Answer: The answer to this question varies widely dependent on climate, proximity to water, tree coverage, and how thorough the cleaning was. Some roof cleaning professionals in New Hampshire may offer annual maintenance programs or products that will inhibit future growth.

  11. There certainly are a lot of questions surrounding the topic of roof cleaning. Can you clean an asphalt shingled roof ? Can you clean a roof without harming the shingles ? What are the black streaks on my roof ? What will happen if I don't have my roof cleaned ? In many areas of the country roof algae ( Gloeocapsa Magma ) is becoming a major concern for homeowners. This type of algae needs three things to thrive. The right amount of sunlight ( or lack of sunlight ) a damp area, and food. Roofs have become a favored host for this algae because it offers everything needed. The algae feed on the crushed limestone that is used in the manufacturing of asphalt shingles. Limestone is used to keep the shingle flexible and also to help the fiberglass matting absorb the asphalt during production. North facing sections of roofs are the first areas that the algae become apparent. This is caused by the fact that it see's less sunlight, stays damp longer, and the food is there. Besides making a roof look very dirty and diminishing the home's curb appeal and value, what other damage is being done ? When the roof algae is not taken care of it prevents the shingles from reflecting the UV rays of the sun. Because the shingles cannot reflect heat from the sun, they start to fail prematurely. Signs of wear are curled corners, wavy or humped shingles, broke or loose shingles, and excessive amounts of granules from the shingles appearing in the gutters just to name a few. Most homeowners will notice and become concerned with the unsightly black streaks caused by the algae on their roof long before any serious damage is done. The good news is that shingles can be cleaned properly without harming the shingles. The major shingle manufacturers say so themselves. They even have guidelines and suggestions for the proper cleaning of asphalt shingles without harming them. The proper method includes a low pressure ( soft wash ) cleaner application followed by a light rinsing. This rinsing can either be done after the chemical application, or for better protection, the cleaner is allowed to dwell on the roof until a rain rinses the shingles. NOTE: Never allow a pressure washer to be used on your roof. Many roofs have been damaged by someone attempting to blast the algae off the shingles using a pressure washer. Doing this blows the protective granules off the shingles. Thus shortening the longevity of the roof. If you notice black streaks on your roof, or know someone else who is, don't loose hope and think you will need to spend thousands on a new roof. First give us a call and we access the situation with your roof for you. A proper roof cleaning can definitely safe you money.
  12. We'll Clean What's growing on your Roof, House and Driveway. Asphalt roofs in Jacksonville, Orange Park and Most of Florida are being infested by a DarkGreen Algae (commonly Called black mold). The technical term for the algae is Gloeocapsa Magma. Gloeocapsa Magma is spread by wind and animals, and grows from a small dot to a spot to a streak. As the colony grows, and will hold moisture, which enables the entire colony to grow even more rapidly. Many times a homeowner will just notice a spot and in no time, half the asphalt roof shingles are covered. Increased moisture levels lead to the growth of lichen, mold and even moss. When lichen are present a phycobiont relationship exists between the Gloeocapsa Magma (provides the photosynthesis algal component) and a lichen (the fungal portion of the colony). This Algae can also be tracked into your house from the drives and walks and grow in your carpeting and other areas of your home. Luckily the Gloeocapsa Magma Algae can be removed through thorough roof cleaning using quality roof algae cleaners recommended by the ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association). We apply these cleaners with a gentle non pressure method with about the same pressure as a garden hose. Our method is recommended by shingle manufactures and won't harm the shingles of your home.
