What causes dirty shingles in Emmitsburg, Maryland?
Black stains and streaks on asphalt shingles are caused by algae growth. The algae feed on the limestone that is used as filler in asphalt shingles. When it rains, the algae is spread, causing black streaks and stains. If these stains are left untreated, the black streaks will continue to grow causing lichen and finally growing into moss. When lichen and moss are allowed to grow, it will deteriorate the single due to the growth of a root system.
Just because you have dirty shingles in Emmitsburg, Maryland and Northern Maryland, doesn’t mean you need to repalce your roof. A roof replacement can cost thousands while our non pressure system can return your shingles to like new condition at a fraction of the cost.
