Do You Have Black Stains On Your Roof?

If you haven’t already, take a quick look at your roof. If you find any black stains or blue-green spots, your roof might be developing algae, mold, mildew, or fungus. The algae growing on roofs thrives on heat and moisture. With direct sunlight and just a little rain, these various types of algae can begin to thrive. Over time, they will spread, leading to significant discoloration that can be seen from relatively far away.

If the black stains are not from these algae, the stains may indicate a breakdown of your asphalt shingles. In this case, your roof may be reaching the end of its life. Either way, Florida Southern Roofing can inspect your roof to confirm the cause and go over the next steps with you.

Why You Need Roof Cleaning in Sarasota, FL

Algae can affect your roof in one of two ways. The most obvious problem is the discoloration of your roof. If left untreated, the algae will spread, leading to noticeable stains. This can reduce your home’s curb appeal. 

The other, more severe side effect of algae is its potential for eating through the limestone of your shingles. When this happens, your roof becomes vulnerable to leaks. This can lead to water damage and wood rot. If this happens, you may not need to replace your roof fully, but you will have to get the affected shingles replaced, and any wood rot repaired. However, this issue can be avoided if you spot the spread of algae early and have a roof cleaning service performed immediately.

If your home has a “cool” roof, algae can reduce its ability to reflect heat. This will lead to increased heat in the home. This is not only uncomfortable, it’s expensive. You will likely notice a bump in your energy bills, depending on how hard your HVAC system needs to work to make up for the difference. 

What to Expect from Our Roof Cleaning Services

As one of the top roof cleaning companies in Southwest Florida, quality craftsmanship and elite customer service are just a few of the things you can expect from our professional team. When scheduling service with Florida Southern Roofing, you will receive prompt and thorough roofing services. We will inspect the damage, confirm the cause, and provide you with an accurate quote for our services. From there, we will use specialized roof cleaning products that are designed to clean and protect your roof from pollutants. These cleaning agents will effectively eliminate the threat of these pollutants without damaging your roof. 

Florida Southern Roofing is an authorized Roof-A-Cide applicator, allowing us to utilize both Roof-A-Cide and Roof Restore to control algae, mold, mildew, and fungus. Roof-A-Cide products are some of the safest and most effective roof restoration methods, used on over 200,000 properties over the past ten years. 

Roof-A-Cide and Roof Restore are so effective that Florida Southern Roofing guarantees your roof will stay protected for no less than two full years. In the rare event that your treatment’s protection doesn’t last two years, we’ll clean and treat your roof for no additional cost. With Roof-A-Cide products on your side, you won’t ever have to pressure wash your roof again. The best part? Roof-A-Cide and Roof Restore don’t require pressure cleaning or harsh chemicals to work their magic. That means you can treat your roof every few years without damaging your landscaping, roof, or the underlying roof membrane.  

How to Prevent Algae Buildup in the Future

Algae infestation starts small and tends to go unnoticed until large stains dominate your roof. Because the algae that affects roofs is airborne, it can be difficult to predict and prevent entirely. However, with routine roof cleaning, you can significantly mitigate the risk of algae growth. 

With a regular application of Roof-A-Cide every two years, your roof will enjoy lasting protection against algae, mold, mildew, and fungus. While a roof cleaning might seem like an unnecessary expense, many roofs last only half as long as they could due to roof damage associated with a lack of cleaning. Your roof should last up to 30 years, but a lack of cleaning can result in major repairs or replacements being needed after just 12 to 15 years.
