What’s on Your Roof?
If you’ve never had your roof cleaned, or if it has been a while, you may notice a growing black spot on your roof. This is an algae called Gloeocapsa. It is possible to mistake this algae for soot or dirt but the organism actually has a minuscule root structure that invades the materials of your roof, feeding off of the organic material found there. This can shorten the lifespan of your roof and the longer the algae is allowed to latch onto your roof, the more extensive the roof repairs will be.
Our roofing company in Champaign is very familiar with Gloeocapsa and how to get rid of it. Your roof cannot just be pressure washed, which may damage your roofing material further and spread the algae. It takes a specialized cleaning system to remove algae. Our team at Gire Roofing is trained and equipped to remove this algae from your roof and repair any damage that the organism did.
