Revival Vs Washing

Most roofing shingles 10 years or older were manufactured without any resistant barriers to algae or staining. Although todays products are fortified with copper granules to eliminate such streaking and unsightly appearances, it isn’t always necessary to replace the entire roof due to algae staining. CAT has introduced a program called “Roof Revival” in which we offer 3 packages to not only clean but enhance the stain resistance and longevity of the waterproofing system

What Are Those Stains?

If you have noticed an incredible outbreak of roof stains in your neighborhood you’re not alone.

Roof stains are sweeping the country in alarming proportion. Until recently most of us thought this to be purely cosmetic. This however is not the case. The stains that appear on your roof are living organisms that are methodically reducing the lifespan of the investment you made in your homes roof shingles. These organisms feed on the base of the shingle (primarily the limestone filler) causing the reflective ceramic granules to loosen and end up in your gutter. As these granules ‘disappear’ you will notice as rise in your homes utility bills. Unable to effectively reflect the suns rays away from your home in summer your air conditioner will find itself working overtime to keep your house cool. The black streaks also absorb and hold heat to your roofs surface. In winter your heating bill will inch upward as the shingles are less likely to retain the heat in your home as they did when they were new. An infected roof not only reduces your homes curb-appeal and property value but can also have an adverse effect on the occupant’s respiratory system. Beware allergy sufferers!
