When the time comes for you to replace your current shingle roof, you may be thinking about the possibility of upgrading. If you want to stick with the appearance of a shingle roof, but live in an area of high humidity, consider upgrading to algae resistant shingles. These shingles prevent moss and algae from being able to grow on you roof, which provides many excellent benefits for your home. Cincinnati Gutters & Roofing can provide additional information about algae resistant roofing systems.
Why Choose Algae Resistant Shingles?
It may not seem like that big of a deal, but algae growing on your roof can be a serious problem with limited solutions. Usually removing algae growth from the roof requires either a roof replacement, which can be expensive, or a power wash, which can damage the roofing materials. Here are some additional reason to consider installing algae resistant shingles.
Higher Property Value
Algae can make your roof look bad. It creates dark spots on your shingles. This impacts the symmetry of the roof and lowers the overall curb appeal of your home. Algae resistant shingles retain their appearance even in the most humid of climates, which can increase the curb appeal and value of your home.
Better Energy Efficiency
Algae creates dark spots on your roof. These dark spots absorb a lot of heat from the sun. This heat is transferred into your attic, which will raise the internal temperature of your home. With algae resistant roofing, you won’t have to worry about the impact your roof is having on your energy bills.
