Algae is one of the most common enemies of your roofing system. Thankfully, it is possible to prevent algae from growing on your roof if you invest in shingles with granules that release algae-killing copper. GAF’s new StainGuard Plus™ technology does just that. Read on as Mass-Tech Roofing and Building Co., a top local roofing company, discusses everything you need to know about this innovative product.
Algae killing technology isn’t new, but older products have a serious weakness. As time passes, the granules release less and less stain-fighting copper due to moisture exposure. As a result, blue-green algae can easily grow on your roofing system, creating a major eyesore that will need to be addressed by a roofing contractor. The cost of frequent roof cleaning certainly adds up, which is why the demand for a product that can nip this problem in the bud once and for all is so strong.
How StainGuard Plus Helps
GAF’s StainGuard Plus shingle technology is a patent-pending algae-killing technology that’s been in development for nearly a decade. This new algae-fighting technology relies on specially engineered time-release capsules that are infused with thousands of copper particles. A huge advantage of this product is that it can release 10 times more copper than the older types of algae-killing technology. As the years pass, the system will continue to release just the right amount of copper to help keep your roofing system algae-free.
