HOA Letters? City Violations? Or just a dirty roof?
Have you ever asked yourself what those black streaks on your roof? It's called Gloeocapsa Magma which is a type of algae that feeds on the crushed limestone used in asphalt shingles. It survives in humid and warm climates such as ours.
The black streaks come from rain spreading the algae down the roof which harbor a number of molds or fungi. Fungi can spread as an airborne spore that settles on roofs, especially the asphalt shingle ones. The spores on the roof that don't get a lot of sun stand a better chance of survival. This creates a perfect feeding ground for molds or fungi by increasing the humidity on the surface of the shingle or tile.
Roofs are commonly replaced due to their appearance. If your roof has black stains, dirt, leaves, mold, and mildew, 396 Solutions can clean it with our unique Softwash roof cleaning.
