Here are some pictures we took before and after we finished Cleaning Algae Resistant Shingle Roof in Tampa. Cleaning Algae Resistant Shingle Roof is not a job for an inexperienced roof cleaning company. Most roofing shingle manufacturers are using the 3M System that consists of adding additional Zinc and Copper Granules to you roof. These Zinc and Copper Granules are easily and forever removed by any form of pressure washing, or the use of improper roof cleaning chemicals. Once these Zinc and Copper Granules are removed by pressure washing and/or improper cleaning, your roof no longer has the algae resistance you paid for!
The way the 3M Algae Block system works is this. The Copper and Zinc Granules that are embedded in your roofing shingles secrete Zinc and Copper Sulfate, every time it rains. Zinc and Copper Sulfate are natural fungicides that kill any mold, mildew, or algae upon contact. This is how algae resistant shingles keep your roof clean. Many makers of these algae resistant shingles have a warranty, and will actually pay for your roof to be cleaned under warranty! Here in the Tampa Florida area, many shingle manufacturers will send you to Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa to get your algae resistant shingle roof cleaned, under warranty.
So, if you get a letter from your homeowners association to get your roof cleaned, check with your roofer or builder. You may have algae resistant shingles installed on your home, and not be aware of it ? If so, we can assist you in getting the cost of the roof cleaning covered under warranty!
We constantly get asked “Do algae resistant shingles work, and are they worth the extra money” ? The answer is a resounding YES! They work so well that they have actually hurt the business of roof cleaning companies in others area of the USA. However, here in Florida, our heat and very high humidity overwhelm them, so we are always Cleaning Algae Resistant Shingle Roofs.
