Black Streaks On Your Roof?
A common misconception among homeowners is what those long black streaks on their roof shingles are. With all the rain that we get here in Louisiana, the assumption is that they are mineral runoff from the shingles or deposited by the rain itself. In reality, those long black streaks are a special type of algae called Gloeocapsa Magma. They are carried by the wind and can spread from a small dot, to a streak, to covering half of your roof shingles in just one season! How is that possible? Limestone.
Eating Your Shingles
Limestone is a prime component of modern day roof shingles and Gloeocapsa Magma eats it! That’s right, this little algae is literally eating your roof shingles! Creating holes and cracks where water and the elements can directly enter into your roof and attic. This can cause thousands of dollars in damage.
