Roof Algae Removal
Having algae on your roof makes it less attractive, but it’s a much more serious problem than that. Algae growth on your roof is not something that you can put off taking care of.
Roof algae is a living organism, and it feeds off of a limestone filler commonly used in shingle production. If algae growth isn’t taken care of, it can take years off of the life of your roofing. Without regularly roof cleanings—especially if the algae is visibly noticeable—it can lead to rapid deterioration of your shingles, which can have a few negative effects:
- Since your shingles help block UV rays, you’ll see a drop in your Indianapolis home’s energy efficiency and a steep rise in your heating and cooling costs.
- You’ll have to replace your roofing much sooner than you should need to, which can be extremely costly and time-consuming.
It’s also important to remember that algae is completely invisible in its earliest stages of development. So even if your roof appears to be alright, there’s a chance that now is the best time to have it cleaned. Many homeowners may decide to spot clean their roof, but algae could be effecting your entire roof even it’s only visible in spots.
