Roof Cleaning - Increase the Life of Your Roof
Black streaks on your roof can be more than simply an eyesore; they could indicate that your roof is being eaten. At Robert Gray Painting & Pressure Washing, our roof cleaning service can stop the damage before it turns into a costly repair. Believe it or not, those black streaks are caused by a type of algae called Gloeocapsa Magma which thrive in humid climates such as the one here in Owensboro, KY. Modern shingles contain a limestone filler which the algae find to be irresistible. As they consume your roof, they are causing more damage than just eating away the shingles. This damage includes: • Shorter lifespan of the roof • Deterioration to reflective properties • Increased strain on AC units • Higher energy costs • Lower resale value With a professional residential roof cleaning, this damage can be prevented and potentially revised. Our state of the art equipment and cleaning techniques will remove the harmful algae with lasting results. Most residential roof cleaning jobs can be completed quickly with just a two man team and our state of the art equipment. Our cleaning system is the one recommended by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA), and we take every measure to ensure your landscaping remains safe during the cleaning process. While having your roof cleaned, why not take advantage of our other exterior cleaning services the same day.
