Missing granules make a roof black?
Actually, many homeowners believe that the black spots, black streaks and roof mold are actually the shingle asphalt exposed through granule loss.
It’s NOT! The black stains and roof shingle streaks are actually ROOF ALGAE, and ROOF MOLD on living on TOP of the asphalt roof shingles.
Mold, Algae and Fungus on roof shingles result in premature failure in roof shingle surfaces and of course unsightly appearances. Roof algae will discolor the roof surface, dislodge granules and absorb solar heat.
Roof mold will damage the roof shingles. Not only is your roof being discolored by the algae, but it is shortening the life of the roof shingles leading to earlier than necessary roof replacement.
A typical roof shingle replacement costs between $7,000 and $10,000.
Roof cleaning chemicals costs under $75, and save you hundreds of dollars!
Home Owner Associations
Home Owner Associations are now requiring home owners to either re-roof or clean their roofs.

Home Energy Costs related to roof cleaning
Roof Mold and Roof Algae absorb solar heat. Asphalt Roof attic temperatures become a lot higher by preventing the reflective capabilities of the granules from doing their job.
These soaring attic temperatures make your air conditioner work a lot harder and increase your electric bills sometimes as much as several hundred dollars a year.
