Clear All Your Doubts About Roof Maintenance
Never replace your roof just because it's stained. Those ugly roof stains and moss can all be cleaned by our efficient technicians. Find the answers below to some frequently asked questions regarding roof cleaning and washing.
What are those ugly roof stains?
Airborne spores cause those ugly roof stains from black algae and mold. The spores land on the roof and feed on the minerals within the asphalt and wood shingles. The north side of the roof is most affected; the ultraviolet rays from the sun kill most growth spores from algae, mold and fungi on the rest of the roof.
Will the algae harm my roof?
Yes, if left untreated for long enough. The algae growth can cause your shingles to dry, crack and curl. The type of growth you have determines the amount of damage. The least damaging are algae and molds. These growths hold moisture which very slowly causes rotting of the shingles. The worst growth we encounter is lichen. We find it growing on most of the roofs we clean. Lichen is such a rapid feeder that it creates enough damage to the roof in as little as 3 years so as to cause pits in the shingles. Don’t forget the visual damage this growth causes to the roof. Most roofs are replaced today due to the way they look. We find many people replacing their 25-30 year old roofs in as little as 10 years because they look so bad. Often a cleaning is all they need.
Can the algae be prevented after the roof is cleaned?
Often copper and zinc strips installed on the top of the shingles along the ridge are used, but these work poorly at best because the surface area of a narrow strip of metal doesn't release enough oxide poison to keep an entire roof clean. They also became ineffective in as little as 4-5 years. There are now products which come in liquid form that can be applied to the shingles to prevent regrowth. They keep the entire roof clean and are much safer than an oxide poison. As with the copper and zinc, these products need to be reapplied about once every 4-5 years.

"Professional reliable service! We were weary of having our siding pressure washed. I had heard stories of people actually doing a damage with a pressure washer. Fortunately, the folks at Bay Spray knew exactly what they were doing and my house has never looked better.
