Have You Ever Wondered What That
Is On Your Roof?




Before             After


Shingle Manufacturer Approved Process.

Do you remember the first time you looked up at your roof and noticed those black stains appearing on your shingles? Do you remember how you felt when you saw it slowly spreading across your roof? Have you ever wondered how this could be happening and what could be causing it?

Well, you are not alone. This is a common problem found in the Southeast. In the South’s hot and humid climate, it seems inevitable that a fungus will actually begin to grow on your shingles leaving behind those ugly stains. Like all fungi, they multiply by microscopic spores that float through the air. After landing on a hospitable surface they begin to germinate. The spores that settle on the northern exposure of the roof typically stand a better chance of survival because it is normally the last part of the roof to dry after rain or morning dew. Once the sun heats the roof, the moisture trapped around the base of the ceramic granules begins evaporating. This raises the humidity on the surface of the shingles, thus creating a perfect breeding environment for fungi. The tar used in the manufacture of asphalt shingles is fossilized, dead organic matter. This is the specific food source needed to support saprophytic fungus. These fungi feed on dead organic matter decomposing and destroying the host they are living on.

So How Do You Get Rid of the STAINS and
the FUNGUS from Destroying Your Roof?


Make your roof look new again!
