Got Algae, Moss or Lichen? Roof Cleaning Can Extend the Life of Your Roof

We recently came across a great article about roof cleaning that was published in the Poughkeepsie Journal. The article details the problem of algae, moss and lichen that frequently attach themselves to shingles. Not only does this cause ugly discoloration on your roof, but it actually eats away at the shingles over time causing shingle damage, leaks and other major roof damage.

Your roof may be especially susceptible to this type of growth if you have recently experienced a lot of moist and humid weather. You could also be at risk if your house is positioned so that your roof does not get a lot of direct sun exposure due to afternoon shade or trees and buildings that block the sun.

The good news is that if the problem is caught early, professional roof cleaning can prevent damage from moss, algae or lichen growth on your roof. O’LYN specializes in roof cleaning.
