Why a black stained roof is more serious than just an eye sore
Our company recommends all customers to opt for a whole roof cleaning,not just one side of the roof. Treating the whole roof insures a 100% kill ratio on all of the organisms on the roofing shingle. Almost all of the potential customers ask for a quote for one side. The organisms grow much more rapidly on the North side of the roof because it remains out of the sun. These shaded sides hold moisture for a much longer period, even in the summer months. But it doesn’t mean there is nothing growing on the sunny side just because it is not visible from the ground. Since this black roof staining is a contagious bacterium it would be an injustice to treat only one side (unless the roof is being cleaned to be put on the market, which is when people look for the cheapest and minimal cost method). Just like any pest control job the target is 100% eradication. Imagine calling a pest control company to tell them to only treat for roaches in certain areas? What are the chances of that home becoming completely roach free? So, partial roof cleaning is not suggested because algae are all over the roof even if only one side has a visible stain. It will not take long for the stains to reappear if a 100% kill ratio is not achieved.
The cost of treating a whole roof is roughly 20%-30% more than treating only half. People mistakenly think it will be half price to treat only one side. It’s only minimally more since we are already there on the roof. We approach the staining like ‘pest control’ rather than a cleaning.
