Article Body:
Many homeowners are burdened with unwelcome house guests every year. It’s not the kind of guests that
you’re thinking of, however, as this guest doesn’t enter the home. It invites itself to sit on your roof and
causes unsightly discoloration. It’s algae and it effects a lot of homeowners, particularly those who live in
areas of high humidity. Algae, however, doesn’t discriminate against those who don’t live in highly humid
climates. It will attach to any roof and can be carried through wind, squirrels, birds, etc.


The Copper Concept


The concept behind algae resistant roof shingles is actually quite simple. Copper, which is a main ingredient
in this new innovation of shingles, stops algae before it attaches to your home. Homeowners can now
purchase shingles that have copper built directly into the colored granules. The copper isn’t visible, but it’s
presence is certainly felt by unsuspecting algae as it is unable to survive on your roof‘s surface. With use of
these new products, your entire roof becomes an unwelcoming host to algae. Expectedly, these shingles will
cost a few extra bucks, but are well worth the extra cost when you factor the expense of algae removal. The
copper or zinc present in algae resistant shingles are activated further by rain, which distributes the algae
fighting components even further along the roof’s surface. Rain generally promotes moisture on the roof,
which serves as a breeding ground for algae. Thankfully, that’s no longer the case thanks to algae resistant
roof shingles.


Manufacturers Of Algae Resistant Roof Shingles


Many of today’s top shingle manufacturers offer algae resistant roof shingles, which can be installed by a
local roofing contractor. They have access to a wide variety of products, including shingles with attractive
colors to compliment your home. A roofing contractor normally gets a discount on these items and, in turn,
may be able to pass that savings onto the customer. In many cases, warranties are even offered to cover
algae resistant shingles. Always choose a company that stands behind their product.


Locating A Professional


A professional roofing contractor in your area will be able to order, and install, your choice of algae resistant
roof shingles. After locating the perfect contractor, ask them for a quote and an expected timeframe. It may
be a good idea to get several quotes from different contractors before making a final decision. Knowing that
your roof is protected, from unwanted algae, will give you a greater peace of mind and allow your home to
remain beautiful and fungus-free.
