Black Stains and streaks on your roof are a form of algae commonly known as Gloeocapsa Magma. Once attached to the roof, this fungus feeds on the dead organic matter of the asphalt shingle or tile. As the fungus breaks down the asphalt shingle, the ceramic granules protecting the surface of the shingle are loosened and begin to fall off. This causes the roof to deteriorate prematurely and diminishes the roof’s abilities to reflect heat rays. If not treated, the Black Stains will reduce the life of your roof, diminish your home’s curb appeal and increase your home cooling expenses. Black Stained roofs are unsightly and make homes look prematurely old. This appearance can reduce property values, which should be a concern to anyone wanting to sell a home. Tile and asphalt shingle roofs are restored to their natural color with the use of our custom blend of chemicals. Our roof cleaning system is deep yet gentle to the roof surface and guaranteed safe not to harm the integrity of the roof. The roof cleaning system is required for removing the resin of the dead algae, and is followed by our treatment.
Black Stains requires three things to grow: heat, moisture, and a nutrient. Nutrients can be found within the shingle themselves while other variables contribute to and hasten fungus growth. The north side of the roof is usually first to exhibit staining here in the Tampa area because moisture is there longer. Add to that, the type, grade and manufacturer of the shingle, the age of the roof, the close proximity of trees, pool, or lake, how hot and humid the weather is here in the Tampa area, and if there are any leaves accumulating on the roof. Now you have most of the answers to the question why your roof has black streaks.

A big misconception is that the only way to clean a black stained roof is to use high pressure. This is the worst way to clean any type of roof. This can cause damage to the asphalt shingle or tile. High pressure removes the ceramic granules from the asphalt shingles and damages clay tile.
