Taking care of your home can sometimes feel like a full-time job. Between keeping the inside of the house clean and making sure that everything from your outdoor siding to your yard is kept in good shape, you probably don’t have a lot of free time to check on things like the condition of your roof. Unfortunately, just like any other part of your home that isn’t properly maintained, your roof is at risk of being damaged by forces large and small. Extreme weather can cause damage to your roof quickly, but the spread of mold, algae, and moss is even more insidious. Not only do these microorganisms cause unsightly stains on your roof, they also gradually eat away at the materials of your shingles, which can reduce the length of your roof’s life.
Fortunately, there is now a simple way to stop these organisms from ruining your roof: Copper Cat copper roof strips! These strips are built from the purest copper we can find, and use a natural process to transmit ions to water that creates an environment on your roof that is inhospitable to algae, moss, and mold! There is really no better way to protect your roof!
Chemical Treatments Can Do as Much Harm as Good
There are many products on the market that claim to effectively kill algae and mold, and while they will eliminate any of these parasites that are on your roof at the time the chemical is applied, most of these treatments quickly wash away, leaving your roof ripe for another conquest. These compounds are, by their very nature, fairly caustic, and while they will kill moss, mold, and algae, they will also do damage to your roof that shortens its usable lifespan.
Copper or Zinc Roof Strips?
Copper Cat copper roof strips are natural, do no damage to your roof, and are reusable. While zinc strips offer some of these features, they do not work as well as our specially manufactured strips, they are much more brittle and prone to breaking than our copper ones, and they don’t protect as much of your roof as ours do! Best of all, Copper Cat strips will work for hundreds of years. You can reuse them every time you have your roof replaced, and they look great when they’re brand new and after they have oxidized and blended in with the color of your roofing materials!
No matter what kind of roof you have, Copper Cat copper roof strips are the best way to stop algae, moss, and mold from taking over your roof, damaging it, and making it look run down. Shop with us today and start protecting your roof!
