Algae is never a good thing for your Central NJ asphalt shingle roof. Not only does it make your roof look bad, but it can also cause damage if left untreated.
Middlesex County NJ Roofing
Algae growth usually occurs in more humid areas of the U.S. There are two types of algae that affect your NJ roof. The first kind is black algae. Although this kind isn’t harmful for your roof, the black streak marks that it creates is quite unappealing to the eye. The second kind of algae is green moss. Moss can actually grow into the shingles and eventually cause damage. If you have a moss problem you should contact a Central NJ roofing contractor to clean it off or carefully do it yourself.
If you are getting a new roof installed and want to prevent algae from growing on it, have your Central NJ roofing contractor install algae resistant shingles. There are several manufacturers that have 10 and even 15 year warranties. There are also algae resistant coating products that you can use.
