Roof Cleaning in New Jersey
Lichens: The Silent Roof Destroyer
These are actual pics of a roof infested with lichen. Notice the granule loss under the lichen. Without granules the underlying membrane is now exposed to the elements. This shingle will dry and split prematurely. This is proof that roof cleaning is important to the structure. Roof cleaning in NJ is more than just creating a fresh appearance. As shown in the pictures, growths on a roof eat away at the granules to leave the inderlying membrane exposed to the elements. With nothing protecting the membrane it will surely deteriorate and crack before its expected time. Treating a roof creates longevity and saves thousands in the long run.
