About the EraserSpacer™
A Roofer's Pet Peeve Becomes Groundbreaking Invention
As the owner and founder of the Virginia-based roofing company, A Plus Roofing, William “Billy” Kain was in the leagues of the top one-percent of roofing contractors in the United States.
However, when it came to the roof on his own home, he had a startling question:
“What is with these ugly, black streaks?”
If a professional roofer with 40+ years of experience couldn’t keep his own roof pristine, who could?
His roof was only eight years old – far from the industry’s 30-year average lifespan. But large, dark streaks had already begun to form, ridding his house of curb appeal while leaving him both frustrated and perplexed.
Kain knew if he invested in harsh, chemical cleaners that they’d only fix the topical problem. He began his mission to determine the streak’s root cause.
After years of research, he discovered black streaks are far from a simple cosmetic problem – they’re a byproduct of harmful algae growth.
A revolutionary product was born
Kain developed the EraserSpacer™ using copper plate technology that, when paired with natural rainfall, counteracts the effect of the algae and rids rooftops of black streaks for good.
Now, his mission is to save American homeowners thousands of dollars on unnecessary rooftop repairs and replacement.
