To just KILL Roof Algae, simply spray it with some Copper or Zinc Sulfate mixed with water. 1 8 oz cup of copper sulfate per gallon of water will kill any plant growing on a roof, and provide lasting protection against re growth for awhile. Be sure and wet ALL plants and grass down before application. It can be applied with a pump up sprayer. The Roof Algea will die, and so will roof moss, and roof lichens! Eventually, the rain will wash the dead plant matter away, but it does take a long time.
