Nov 24, 2017

Roof Maintenance

There is a roofing problem that you may develop if you live in a community where there is a substantial amount of rain or moisture on a regular basis. It is called Black algae. You have probably seen this before on your roof if you have it. It will appear as dark streaks, blotches that will appear on your roof, slightly darker than the rest of the roofing material. These are stains that are caused by algae, and although they cannot do much harm, they will affect the resale value of your home. That’s why you need to find a way to get all of this off if possible. You will need to find a professional that can apply solutions to the Black algae to remove it permanently.

How Do You Find Roofing Maintenance Companies That Can Help You?

You can find these companies very quickly searching online. If you simply search for roofing repairs Black algae, you will see many companies that are in your local area that can provide you with this type of service. This is a much more common problem on the West Coast of the United States, and anywhere east of the Rockies. It is a problem that can be resolved using different types of solutions that are capable of removing mold, mildew, and blue-green algae which travels through the air onto roofs all through neighborhoods. The best way to find them is by searching in the phone book for roofing companies, or you can do this online. It is also possible you may receive a referral from someone that you know that has recently had the same problem and got excellent results from one of these roofing contractors or businesses.

What Can You Do On Your Own?

If you want to try to do this on your own, it’s easy enough to do. You will need a mixture of trisodium phosphate, bleach, and water. By applying this mixture to your roof using a pump sprayer, or even one of those units where you can load the liquid into a specially designed spray nozzle for a garden hose, you can spray this on in a matter of minutes. It usually only takes one treatment, but it could take more than that. At the end of a month, you should see a noticeable difference. As mentioned before, it’s not going to damage your shingles in any way, but it will discolor them, making your house lose a substantial amount of curb appeal.

How To Save Money With One Of These Roofing Businesses

Saving money with these companies is very easy to accomplish. You will simply need to find a business that can give you a great deal on taking care of your Black algae problem. Regardless of how extensive it is, or how long it has been there, they will have the chemicals that are necessary to eliminate the problem very quickly. One other thing to consider is looking for businesses that specialize in this particular type of treatment. If you are in a larger city, one that is in an area which has this problem regularly, they will likely save you the most money on this type of work. They will also have the best chemicals available, and will probably be able to treat your entire roof in under an hour.
