ROOF CLEANING: Many homeowners believe that when their roof becomes discolored with black stains that their roof needs replacing at a cost of thousands of dollars. This is not true.
What has happened is that an algae and fungus is feeding on the organic matter in the roofing shingles. As the fungi mature and age, they develop a black color as a defense to ultraviolet rays. It is this black color, typically in the form of streaks or patches, that homeowners see resulting in an unattractive roof that lowers the overall attractiveness and value of the house. If you're selling your house, this can cause great concern to the prospective home buyer as they think they will have to put out thousands for a new roof.
Some homeowners will try to clean their own roofs using bleach. Unfortunately, bleach will eventually cause the roof to whiten and the shingles become hardened. Bleach should never be used to clean a roof because of the damage it will cause.

We use a combination of safe Environmentally-Friendly and effective solutions and a small amount of "very safe pressure" to restore your roof to its original or near-original new looking state in only a few hours.
