What’s Growing on Your Roof?

The elements can wreak havoc upon your home. Whether it’s rain, snow, or the relentless ultraviolet rays of the sun, the constant barrage can sometimes be too much for a roof to handle. Things like algae, lichen, moss, and fungus can grow all too easily on poorly maintained roofs. Water and sunlight, when left alone, promote the growth of these corrosive organic materials. But how much damage can they really do?

The Risks to Your Home

A growth-covered roof is not only ugly, it costs homeowners money. The Black Algae is feeding off the limestone that is in the shingle which will cause the shingle to curl therefore at that point it is too late to clean and the roof will then need to be replaced. A thinner roof means a less effective roof, which means more money spent on energy costs. Growth on your roof also means your roof retains more water, which makes it heavier and can decrease the effectiveness of your gutters and drainage systems as well. Over time, this can really strip away your roof and mandate a complete roof replacement-which can cost well over $10,000!
