Black Stains On Your Roof: Much More Than An Eyesore
If you have black streaks on your roof, that means it’s time to have a professional roof cleaning done. These black streaks are algae called Gloeocapsa Magna that thrive in moist and hot temperatures throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. It disrupts the granules in the shingles, causing the shingles to weaken over time. When you see black stains, your roof is dealing with an issue that:
- Reduces the lifespan of your roof.
- Compromises your roof insurance policy.
A home’s roof should be approached and cleaned with considerable care. Using high pressure on a roof usually voids any warranty.
