Over time Algae, Moss, and Lichen can grow on your roof and threaten the integrity of your shingles. Typically seen on the side of your roof with the least amount of sun, these types of growth are usually carried on the wind and deposited on your roof. Over time, they receive what is needed to grow from your roof and the air and then take on a life of their own. These growths can all trap additional moisture, some of them can latch on to the granules which is the life of the shingle, and all of them are unsightly. Thankfully, we have just the solution to cleaning these growths safely off your roof, as recommended by the American Roofing Manufacturers Association.

Benefits of our Columbia Roof Cleaning Services

Moss and Lichen are dangerous to your roof for several reasons. They latch on to the granules of your shingles and can borough into your roof, causing conditions that may lead to leaks. The granules they attach to are what protect your shingle from the elements. If those granules are ripped out, the shingle is then exposed, and its life is shortened. Moss can also lift the edge of your shingles, which puts them at risk of being ripped off in stormy weather. Algae is likely the most common growth, though we typically see some degree of all three types on a roof. The most common type of algae growth seen on roofs is Gloeocapsa Magma. This type of growth is a calcifier, which means it consumes calcium to grow. Since the energy crisis in the 70s, shingle manufacturers found out they could decrease the cost of shingle production by reducing the amount of asphalt in the shingle and increasing the amount of filler put in. This filler commonly contains limestone, which is a source of calcium for the Gloeocapsa Magma.

In order to clean your roof safely, the process has to rely on chemicals to do the work instead of blasting your roof with high pressure. Too much pressure can remove the granules on your roof, damaging your roof and significantly shortening its life. After the chemical is lightly sprayed on the roof and it has completed its work, we rinse it off thoroughly.

If any growth comes back within 2 years, just give us a call and we will come back to treat the trouble spot free of charge.

Frequently Asked Roof Cleaning Questions

The amount of a roof cleaning is largely based on the type of your roof, how high and hard it is to access, and the amount of growth present. A typical shingle roof roof of 3000 square feet ranges from $900-$1,100, which is roughly 1/10th the cost of replacement. Metal and tile roofs range and are priced per roof.

Yes, we give a 2 year warranty that no growth will return. If for some rare reason it does, we will happily come back to clean the affected areas.

NO! Pressure more than a garden hose is not good for your roof. Many times the amount of pressure we use is actually much less than a garden hose as we have specialized nozzles which spread out the stream from our machines, so by the time it reaches your roof the pressure is about that of rain. Our chemical solution is what removes the stains, and we only use water to rinse your landscaping and rinse the solution from your roof.
