Roof cleaning is the process of removing algae, mold, mildew,
lichen and moss from roofs. Also cleaning oxidation on
metal roofs. Cleaning can extend the duration of a roof’s
ability to function. Algae and other types of build-up
often form on the north and west parts of roofs that are shaded
or receive less sun, and can reduce a roof’s life expectancy.
The presence of soot, dirt, or biomass can affect how much sunlight is
absorbed by a roof and thus the amount of heat a building absorbs. Contact

Black streaks? Unsightly moss? What on earth are lichens? Here in the Northeast, we’re fortunate to experience all of the seasons — for better or worse. The humidity, moisture, and exposure to the elements increase the likelihood that you’ll be affected by at least one of these roof nuisances. It’s OK, though. We’re here to help.
Generally, the black streaks that are most common are mostly cosmetic algae pest that make your look roof old. One of the most common misconceptions we hear is that this is from the heat. Well, it certainly doesn’t help, but it’s actually a type of algae.
Lichens and moss growing on your roof? These are most commonly found on the north side of your roof and/or areas that don’t receive as much sun. These things can certainly degrade the integrity of your roof over time.
Let’s be honest. These things just don’t look great. From the curb, your roof could be more than 50% of the visible portion of your home in some cases, but either way, it’s usually a lot! Having a beautiful roof that looks as new as possible adds to the value of your home.
