Here in north Florida’s moist, tropical climate, it is common for a blackish-colored blanket of algae to make its home on your rooftop. Not only will this damage your shingles, but it can cause even a brand new roof to look dingy and old in a short time.
You can have it washed, but that stubborn algae will likely return in a matter of months, creating an endless cycle of washing your rooftop over and over again.
Ironically, one of the most common causes of roof damage and premature aging is washing – due mainly to the repeated application of harsh chemicals with high pressure.
PREVENTION IS THE KEY
At Tadlock Roofing, we believe in a gentler approach, using prevention as our primary weapon against algae growth, roof discoloration and the perpetual washing cycle.
And one of our most powerful tools is a product called Roof-A-Cide®, the only EPA-approved algaecide/fungicide specifically designed and approved for use on roofs. It is effective on asphalt shingles, concrete tiles, clay tiles, stone-coated metal and slate.
