With today's market I thought this previous post would be worth recycling. In our area we have a problem with this fungus/algae that grows on roofs and makes them look old and worn when actually an economical removal treatment can make them look almost new again.
A huge part of getting buyers interested in looking inside a house is attractive curb appeal.
Unfortunately in many parts of the country there are unsightly stains and discoloration on roof shingles that make even the most manicured landscaping lose some of it's luster once the buyer's eyes turn upward and see an ugly roof.
A lot of those black streaks and stains are called by a type of 'roof algae' whose scientific name is Gloeocapsa Magna.
Fortunately there is a solution; Roof-A-Cide has an environmentally safe, EPA Approved Algaecide / Fungicide that will make short work of those ugly roof growths and fairly economically as well.
I have a house that had a fairly new roof but the algae was so thick and streaky it caused people to look with suspicion at the shingles.
Today the Roof-A-Cide guys worked their magic and now my roof is sparkling clean and appealing. Check out the before and after pictures below. Photo 1 was taken around noon yesterday and photo 2 was shot around noon today; the difference is astounding.
Here's the before picture, notice the black streaking and stains
And the same roof after; notice the enormous change and how fresh the 'new' roof looks now.
The total cost for this job was $340.00 and I believe it was well worth it. This process is sort of like painting for your roof. It makes an enormous impact just like paint and is equally cost effective.
A little fresh mulch, some blooming flowers, and 4625 is ready to sell for top dollar.
