WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO CLEAN YOUR ROOF?
Those ugly black streaks that appear on your roof are much more than just an eye sore to the neighborhood. The black streaks that are seen on roof tops is a bacteria known as gloeocapsa-magma. This algae is spread by wind and animals. According to an article on Shop Clean Today, "Many times a homeowner will just notice a spot, and in no time, half the asphalt roof shingles are covered. Increased moisture levels lead to the growth of lichen, mold and even moss." (Shopcleanertoday.com)

Using our low pressure soft washing system Tip Top can safely remove the growth of these contaminants and extend the lifespan of your roof.

There are certainly benefits to cleaning your roof, such as keeping your homes curb appeal looking clean, improving your homes efficiency, keeps your homes gutters clog free and helps to prevent safety risks. Most importantly this will increase the lifespan of your roof.
Algae is a living organism that thrives on dust, pollen, and the organic materials that make up the roof. Dampness triggers its growth. Stains are usually more prominent on northern and western exposures and in heavily shaded areas. Algae grows on, under, and behind the tiny granules that cover the shingles and can harbor a number of molds. This results in unsightly stains and streaks on the roof. Roofs with algae stains absorb heat rather than reflect it, resulting in a super-heated attic and higher home cooling costs as well as reducing the natural life span of the shingles.
Thick moss growth with its shallow root system keeps the roofing materials damp for extended periods of time. This moisture promotes wood rot and causes erosion of the shingles. Moss typically starts to grow at the top of the vertical slots between the shingles. These areas of asphalt shingles are the last place water evaporates from a roof. Moss, like lichen colonies, is quite damaging to shingles and some of the granules underneath the moss may already be gone as a result of this organism.
Lichens are a fungus, usually of the class Ascomycetes, that grow symbiotically with algae, resulting in a composite organism that characteristically forms a crust-like or branching growth on shingle granules. Lichens put out root-like tentacles that penetrate deep into the shingle’s organic, oil base for nourishment, eventually ruining them by creating dark spots, or pock marks where they grow.
Gutter Cleaning & Brightening

Keeping your gutters full of leaves, dirt and other debris will lead to the downspout filling up with debris and not being able to drain properly. In most cases the downspouts get so clogged that they can not drain at all in which leads to water draining off the top of the gutters and down the siding of your home. This can lead to expensive repairs and can be avoided by a simple cleaning.
Tip Top can also brighten your gutters back to their original color. When gutters are not properly maintained they will cause staining that is not easy to remove. Also known as Tiger stripes. Tip Top has the solution to bring your gutters back to new.
