Roof Stains on Roof

Let's face it...your tired of seeing them. Yes, I am talking about those roof stains on your roof. Many people don't realize what causes the stains on your roof. We have heard almost everything...from residue of jet fuel to the shingles rotting from the inside out.
The truth is shingle roofs are manufactured with different degrees of quality. Most roofs applied by builders and roofing contractors are in the low quality range with few, if any, fungus fighting elements like zinc or copper. Higher quality roofs are generally found on expensive custom homes and where the owner has taken a special interest in the quality of the roof.

Contributing Factors:
Black fungus requires three things to grow: heat, moisture, and a nutrient. Nutrients can be found within the shingle themselves while other variables contribute to and hasten fungus growth. The north side of the roof is usually the first to exhibit staining because the moisture remains there longer.
Add to that, the type, grade and manufacturer of the shingle, the age of the roof, the close proximity of trees, pool, or lake, how hot and humid the weather is and if there are leaves accumulating on the roof. Now, you have most of the answer to the question why your roof turns black.

What Can You Do?:
If you do nothing, your 25-year roof will most likely last less than 15 years and your home will remain an unhealthy eyesore. You may even experience the wrath of your homeowners association. You can clean your roof yourself; a risky proposition or you can hire a professional like TMAC Pressure Washing.
