What To Do About Algae Streaks
Algae Streaks, They’re destroying the longevity and curb appeal of your roof.
The streaks and stains are actually an algae feeding on the limestone filler in the asphalt shingle on your roof.
Roof Algae is photoautotrophic cyananobacteria spores that grow in colonies and are carried by wind, birds, squirrels, etc. The colonies need heat, moisture and nutrients to grow. What better place for them to thrive than on your shingles causing ugly black streaks?
If left neglected for too long this algae will shorten the life span of your roof and destroy your property’s curb appeal. Don’t let anyone use a power washer on your roof – IT WILL DESTROY IT!
DON’T LET ANYONE TELL YOU TO REPLACE YOUR ROOF, have it professionally cleaned by a qualified roof cleaning company.
