4. Should I clean my roof or get it replaced?
It depends; this is a something that involves the judgment with the age of the roof along with its current condition. How much longer is it expected to last? Having your roof pressure cleaned is not only a good thing but also a lot cheaper than a new roof. Now, having a new roof maintained periodically is the best thing to give it longevity.
However, if the roof is a 30-year asphalt shingle roof that is on your home now for over 40 years, well then you might want to start to consider a new one instead of a pressurized cleaning.

6. Why Does My Roof Get So Black Quickly?
Here in Miami & South Florida, your first thought might be the weather or the amount of airplane traffic that passes over the city but it actually comes from what we like to consider like a “bacterial infection on your roof”. The bacterium is called gloeocaspa magma, your asphalt shingles have limestone as a filler material and Limestone provides a good source of nutrients for gloeocaspa magma to feed on. When you mix this with the constant humid and moist environment in Miami, you create the perfect recipe for these bacteria to grow.
The black streaks you might have seen increasingly getting worst over the years is this bacteria digging more and more into your roof, making the pressure washing service to be needed more frequently. It becomes harder to get the organism out from under the shingles and easier for the mold to grow back
