GAF’s StainGuard Plus: Everything You Need to Know

When it comes to your roofing system, one of the issues that you can experience are the dark streaks known as algae, which can negatively impact your home’s aesthetic appeal. For the first few years, your roof can effectively fight against the algae that plagues your roof due to the copper granules that are embedded on the system. However, after a few years, your roof loses its effectiveness, allowing algae to spread around the system. Thankfully, there is a way around this, thanks to GAF’s StainGuard Plus™ technology.

Here’s what The Great American Roofing Company, the expert roofers who offer a reasonable roof replacement cost, wants you to know about it:

The Basics Behind GAF’s StainGuard Plus

According to experts, metal ions like copper and zinc can prevent algae growth on your roof. Usually, however, roofers apply copper or zinc strips at the roof’s ridge or copper granules that deteriorate over time.

Fortunately for homeowners nowadays, shingle technology has advanced even further and expert roofing company GAF developed the StainGuard Plus Time Release Algae Fighting Technology. Compared to older technologies, this algae fighting technology uses specially engineered capsules that are infused throughout the entire roof.


GAF’s StainGuard Plus Technology has a few benefits for homeowners such as yourself. For instance, it’s far more efficient when it comes to releasing the copper that can prevent algae growth in your roof. Other than that, it also lasts longer than older algae fighting technologies. In fact, a roof with the StainGuard Plus actually comes with a 25-year limited warranty against algae discoloration, allowing you to fully enjoy an algae-free roof for a long period of time.
