Dallas- Fort Worth's Roof Cleaning Specialists
IS YOUR ROOF STAINED OR DISCOLORED?
First off, what is the cause? Most commonly stains and streaks are caused by algae, fungus, mold or moss that is growing on your shingles or metal roof. Next, let’s take a look at why you need to clean your roof to remove these problem areas.
Have you ever seen that green stuff growing or black streaks on the north side of a roof? (At least that is where it starts.) What is that stuff? It is an algae or mold that actually eats limestone and guess what most shingles have in them? Limestone! A Great American roof cleaning can be the solution.
restore Roofs of all types with Low pressure application
The lime stone is to cause the water to run off, so as the algae or mold grows it damages the surface of the shingles as well as it gives moisture a place to live. This prevents your roof from drying properly and shortens the life of the shingles. The algae begin to form black and green streaks along the surface of your roof and looks terrible. As you can see in the before and after pictures that roof cleaning by Great American Power Wash will improve the looks as well as the longevity of your roof.
We use a manufacter recommended solution that kills the algae and each cleaning includes a special additive to slow the growth in the future. If you have an algae problem, you will probably have it again but if you have it power cleaned regularly, you will stop the unsightly and damaging algae from destroying your shingles. The professional team at Great American Power Wash can restore the looks of your home and protect you from the very expensive task of replacing a roof prematurely.

WHAT CAN HAPPEN IF YOU IGNORE STAINS & STREAKs ON YOUR ROOF
The algae growing on your roof can develop into lichen that binds itself to the asphalt granules and shingles, making it extremely difficult to remove — leaving you with more work than if you remove the algae immediately.
When you have algae growing on your roof, it is most likely holding in moisture that could cause major damage to your roof over time. This could cause water damage, rot, etc., which will wear out your roof quicker than normal.
While it may seem shallow, the algae and dirt on your roof takes away from the great curb appeal of your home. A simple cleaning can make it look brand new, and will stop the algae from growing back for years to come.
This goes hand-in-hand with the curb appeal point. If you are trying to sell your home, cleaning your roof and making it look new can help you sell it faster and for a higher value.
How exactly are you supposed to clean your roof? Well, we suppose you could try washing it yourself with a garden hose, but we would strongly advise against it. Without knowing what you’re doing, climbing on your roof with a running hose is an excellent way to accidentally hurt yourself. Adding insult to potential injury, your hose likely doesn’t have the water pressure strength to blast out built-in gunk for the type of roof cleaning you are trying for.
The better (and easier) option is to reach out to the professionals at Great American Power Wash to have them power wash your roof. Serving clients throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area, we utilize eco-friendly products and proven techniques to remove streaks and grime on your roof. Additionally, we can effectively remove mildew and dirt that’s embedded itself within your roof system over the years. By having your roof thoroughly cleaned with a power washer, it doesn’t just look better — it extends the operational life of your roof and protects it for years to come.
We use a soft wash cleaning method which is very low pressure (less than a garden hose) to remove mold, mildew, moss and algae discolored problem areas. One or more of these organic matters is often a cause of premature roof failure or damage. “Organic” means its growing and has roots that can cause intensifying damage over time. To combat that, we use the roofing manufacturer’s recommended cleaning methods. This cleaning procedure does not void your warranty nor cause any other damage that would void your warranty. As trained professionals, we use all the safety and cautionary measures possible to ensure that our team members safety and your home’s integrity is our first priority. Call us today with any questions or concerns!
It may not seem like it when you’re blasting bits of dirt and grime off the side of your house or roof, but in the end high pressure does more harm than good. With more than 11 years of experience, our team has the tools and the talent to ensure your power washed roof is cleaned properly and safely.
