Atlas Shingles Protected by Scotchgard™

Enhance Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Your home’s first impression is crucial, and nothing detracts from that more than unsightly black streaks on your roof caused by algae. Algae thrive in moist environments and can spread quickly, leaving your roof looking neglected and unappealing.

Choose Atlas Shingles for Long-Lasting Beauty

Instead of dealing with diminished curb appeal, protect and enhance your home with Atlas shingles featuring Scotchgard™ Protector. These shingles come with the Atlas Lifetime Algae Resistance Limited Warranty, ensuring your roof remains free of algae stains. Here’s why Atlas shingles are the superior choice for your home:

Can I Just Clean the Algae Off My Roof?

It might seem logical to clean algae from your roof, and many companies offer pressure-washing services. A quick wash might solve the problem.

The Reality: Pressure washing is not a permanent solution. Even at low settings, pressure washing can remove protective granules along with the algae, which diminishes your shingles’ UV protection and color. Moreover, algae will grow back, making washing a recurring and costly maintenance task.
Prevention is key to maintaining your home’s appearance. Atlas shingles with Scotchgard Protector offer a Lifetime Algae Resistance Limited Warranty, providing peace of mind that your roof will retain its original color without needing regular cleaning.

Will Dark-Colored Shingles Hide Algae Stains?

Some homeowners believe choosing dark-colored shingles will hide algae stains.

The Reality:
Algae can create visible streaks and patterns on any color shingle, even the darkest shades. Simply opting for dark shingles does not solve the problem. Atlas shingles with Scotchgard Protector are available in various styles and a wide range of colors, from light to dark, allowing you to choose the perfect look for your home while effectively preventing algae stains.

How Does Scotchgard Protector Work?

While many shingles are marketed as algae-resistant, not all are created equal. Understanding what sets Atlas shingles with Scotchgard Protector apart is essential.

The Reality:
Copper is a proven algae deterrent. Most algae-resistant shingles contain a small percentage of copper granules (3% to 5%), but Atlas shingles with Scotchgard Protector contain a minimum of 10% evenly distributed 3M copper granules. This higher concentration of copper provides superior protection, keeping your roof clean and maintaining your home’s value for years.
