Roof cleaning measures such as pressure washing can remove or roughen the surface of the roofing material, reducing the intended productive life of the roof. At best it is a messy, temporary solution which would need to be repeated frequently. This sort of procedure also does nothing to kill the spores that created the Algae and Black Mold. Plus, Pressure Washing will damage your roof! Look at some of the damage it can cause below.
Commercial Roofers Greenville explain, that copper strips is a natural “solution” to roof moss, algae and mold problems.
We feel Copper Strips perform far better then Zinc Strips do here in the Tampa, Florida area.
When fitted on a clean roof, the Copper Strip will HELP, but not totally prevent plant growth on your Florida Roof by exposure to air and water which causes the copper to oxidise, creating Copper Sulphate which runs down the length of your roof in the rain water.
This is deadly to roof plant spores and will therefore HELP keep your roof free from Algae. This effect is obvious under copper vent pipes or lead flashing’s under chimneys.
Copper Strips —the low cost, natural alternative to repetitive roof cleaning, HELPS put an end to moss, algae and Mold on your Tampa Florida roof. Rooftop Chimney & Roof Services in Beaverton feels the Copper Strips work, to a degree.
In our opinion, they are “better then NO roof protection”.
Plus, the Copper Strips look FAR better in our opinion, taking on a nice Copper Patina over time.

100% Safe, No Pressure Shingle Roof Cleaning in Tampa
Aside from aesthetics, shingle roof cleaning is necessary here in Tampa, to assure that you get the proper life from your roof, keep your A/C expenses lower, and for health reasons.
The culprit causing your roof to discolor here in Tampa and look so bad is algae, and it WILL shorten the life of your shingle roof, it WILL make your roof darker and thus hotter from the sun’s rays. This will make your home hotter, as well as speed the deterioration of your shingles.
We do not use any type of pressure washer on your roof. We do not use damaging shingle roof cleaning products that require pressurized water to complete the cleaning, such as sodium hydroxide.
We take every precaution necessary to protect your plants and the exterior of your home. Unlike most of our “competitors”, we employ the use of a dedicated ground person to keep the house and foliage well rinsed before, during, and after the shingle roof is treated with our Apple Sauce. This will assure that your plants will not die, your house will not be damaged, and no one will be injured during the cleaning process. Do you really want some inexperienced part time pressure washing contractor falling off your roof while you’re at work, and then blaming you for his lack of experience and safety?
We have seen it many times, an inexperienced part time pressure washer on a customer’s shingle roof in Tampa, blasting away at full pressure, using little or no cleaning chemicals or algaecides, and causing damage to a roof that likely won’t be noticed for years. Don’t be a victim of inexperience. With Apple Roof Cleaning Of Tampa, you can “Experience the Difference, Because the Difference is Experience!”
