  • Residential Roofing Indianapolis

    The roof is arguably the most important part of the home; in fact, without a roof, a house can hardly be called a home. The roof provides comfort, security, and safety from the elements. So if the roof ends up with any kind of damage, it could end up compromising all of the qualities that the roof is supposed to provide. The roof is particularly susceptible to wear and tear since it is exposed to the elements, and in Indianapolis, those elements can be varied and unpredictable.


How StainGuard Plus™ Technology Protects Against Algae

Universal Roofing & Exteriors is the leading roofing and drywall contractor in our local area because of our excellent workmanship and top-of-the-line products. We use only the best brands for our customers. In today’s article, we discuss the benefits of GAF’s StainGuard Plus™ technology.

How StainGuard Plus™ Technology Protects Against Algae

How StainGuard Plus Works

StainGuard Plus is an exclusive patent-pending algae-fighting technology that protects shingles from unsightly algae growth. GAF developed this technology over the course of many years. They are so confident in the performance of StainGuard Plus that they back shingles with this technology with a 25-year limited warranty against blue-green algae discoloration.

Many algae-resistant shingles have a layer of copper that’s released onto the roof when the shingles get wet. However, this is inefficient. Less copper is released as the shingles age, reducing their overall algae-resistance. As an expert in roofing and drywall painting, we recommend choosing shingles with StainGuard Plus instead. These shingles feature long-lasting algae protection, with specially engineered capsules that release ten times as much algae-killing copper.

Timberline Ultra HD Shingles Features

Currently, StainGuard Plus technology is available on Timberline® Ultra HD® shingles. These premium shingles are beautiful, long-lasting and incredibly durable. They feature proprietary color blends, an enhanced shadow effect and they are much thicker than ordinary shingles. Timberline Ultra HD shingles also feature Dura Grip™ Adhesive that allows the shingles to withstand winds at speeds of up to 130 mph.
