Quick! Look up at your roof! Is it dirty, streaky, stained, and downright ugly? If you answered yes to any of the above, then chances are your home is being attacked by algae - a living organism growing on what was once likely a beautiful roof. If this is happening to you, you are not alone. In fact, moderate to severe algae is a problem in over 80 percent of the United States. Even if you go to the expense of having it chemically cleaned, it’s going to start to grow again within a relatively short timeframe. Why? Because algae grows and thrives wherever there is moisture.
And, if algae isn’t already affecting your home, it soon could be, because algae spores are carried airborne from roof to roof. So, if anyone that lives near you has a streaky roof, it’s really just a matter of time. There’s never been a guarantee to stop it for a lifetime … until now!
Clean Is Built Into Every Roof
Atlas Roofing Corporation is proud to introduce its Pristine Architectural Shingle Line featuring Scotchgard™ Protector, the single most effective algae solution available, and the only solution effective enough to earn the Scotchgard™ name.
How effective? Well, Atlas is the only shingle manufacturer to offer a lifetime limited warranty standard against the staining and streaking of algae on their Pinnacle® featuring Scotchgard™ Protector pristine colors, and StormMaster® Slate and StormMaster® Shake SBS Class 4 Impact-Resistant shingles.
Here’s Why It Works
Copper stops algae! Most shingle manufacturers, even those that incorporate copper granules in their algae resistant shingles, incorporate a minimal amount of copper granule blend into their formulations. Unless a shingle has a significant enough copper granule spread to cover the entire surface of the shingle, gaps in coverage will allow spores to start “feeding” on moisture, and algae still will find room to grow on your roof. Atlas shingles featuring Scotchgard™ Protector, undergo stringent third-party testing, ensuring a consistent 10 percent blend of specially treated copper granules across the entire shingle surface, meeting 3M Scotchgard™ Protector strict brand usage guidelines. Simply put, Atlas manufactures their shingles with so much coverage, algae has no place to grow. Ever! If it doesn’t say Scotchgard™, it isn’t verified daily by independent testing laboratories, and it doesn’t have a lifetime limited warranty against all types of algae.
