Roof Stains & Other Roof Issues Years ago, stains on asphalt shingled roofs were not a significant problem.  Today it is a big problem because the design of asphalt shingles has changed over time. For the last 30 years or so, asphalt shingles have been manufactured using limestone as the base filler - this is the core of the problem as this design encourages the stain spreading across the roof.There are a number of types of stains/roof issues and these can vary by the part of the country in which you are located.  

Cleaning your roof with an approbate roof cleaner handles most of these issues including black stains, green stains and silver/gray stains (these are often round or flower shaped in appearance). Most can handle stains that appear to be in clumps or mats on the roof (more common in the northeast and northwest sections of the US).  However most cleaners do not work on stains caused by rust or creosote (from wood burning stoves) nor do shingle cleaners remove paint from the roof. Algae, Moss & Lichen also Damage the Roof & Shortens Roof Life It is bad enough that roof stains are ugly, unfortunately they also lead to roof damage.  The granules which protect & color the roof are dislodged over time.  The stains hold moisture to the roof's surface and can cause decay & rot of the roof's underlayment.  Not only is your roof being discolored by the stains, but life of the roof is shortened leading to an early roof replacement.  Moss and lichen do the same -however, the damage normally occurs much faster.There are Three Ways to have a Clean Roof Again

 

1. Re-roof - an expensive option. Your roof likely has more useful life.   

2. Power Wash or Brush Clean - damages the roof shingles by breaking away the granules that protect & color the roof shortening the life of the roof.    


3.  Call us at Hedberg and Son to schedule a professional inspection and evaluation of your project today.
