What Are Those Black Streaks On My Roof?

The black streaks that you see on the roofs are live organisms. They are a Cyanobacteria referred to as Gloeocapsa Magma, an algae species. It is usually described as “fungus or mildew growth” in Augusta, Georgia. The coloration typically has an appearance of black or brown it is often confused with soot or dirt. Moss can be much worse. The moss has tiny root systems that make to get into the pores of your shingles and then wrap around the granules that make up your roofing shingle which weakens the fibers and wears off granules. This reduces the life of your shingles. They also consume the organic material that is found in the roofing shingles. The longer moss growths are on your roofing materials the more damage they’ll cause.

We are also able to clean roofs safely from the ground!

How Does Gloeocapsa Magma Get On My Roof?

This Cynobacteria usually begins its life cycle with airborne spores that settle on your roof and further colonize it. After black streaks occur, not long after does moss and lichen take hold as well.
