Why Does My Roof Appear to Look Black?
If your rooftop appears black or dark streaked, it’s more than likely roof algae, lichens or moss feeding off it. This black algae, also known as Gloeocapsa Magma, thrives in warm and humid climates of Florida and generally grows on the north side of your rooftop.
The longer the algae goes untreated the more it weakens your rooftop. With time it diminishes your roof’s ability to reflect heat rays, weakens the wood, reduces curb appeal, and increases your home cooling expenses.
Pressure Washing is NOT a Viable Option
Pressure washing your roof just because your neighbor did it may sound tempting but stop right there. The damage caused by pressure washing may not be immediately prevalent as it wipes out the granules from the asphalt shingles – and that is what keeps your roof protected from outside elements like rain, wind, and sun.
In weakened roofs, you will notice water starting to seep inside the edges of joining tiles into the underlayment section. Also, many tiles end up cracked or need repair or replacement. The force and water volume strips away your rooftops lifespan making it an expensive proposition.
