The Truth About Algae

Algae-Resistant Shingles

Smart answers to an ugly problem.

If you're thinking about a new roof for your home, in addition to the style, color and warranty, we'd like you to think about this: algae.

In most damp, humid environments, algae spores can spread like wildfire, carried by wind from rooftop to rooftop. Once there, they feed on minerals and fillers in the shingle, multiplying. The results? Unsightly black staining smears, blotches and streaks, often mistaken for fungus, that cascade down the roof, decreasing your home's "curb appeal" and potentially shortening the useful life or your shingles.

The good news? It doesn't have to happen, thanks to a simple, effective and affordable solution incorporated into CertainTeed algae-resistant (AR) shingles.
