|Tile roof in Tampa, before and after cleaning|
Algae: This is most commonly seen in the form of black streaks on your roof. This is triggered by rain and your roof staying damp. At this point, there is still time for the tile roof to be cleaned and the shingles to stay intact.
Moss: This is likely if your roof sits in a shaded area. This maintains dampness in your roof tiles and can cause more serious damage if left untreated.
Lichen: This is a fungus that protects algae. This is a sure sign your tile roof needs to be cleaned, and possible even replaced. Lichen has roots that dig into roofing and break down asphalt. If shingles are left untreated, your shingles will likely start to erode.
