Unsightly Black Streaks: What Are They and Where Do They Come From
Over time, even roofs that are relatively well-maintained will develop black streaks. This is due largely to the wear and tear your roof must undergo while it serves as the buffer protecting you and your family from the elements.
The streaks themselves are a result of algae that has been built up over time and become dark in color as the algae (a living organism) develops a dark outer coating to protect itself from the sun’s harmful UV-rays. It takes a period of roughly two months for the algae to become dark and noticeable by you and your neighbors.
Algae spores are airborne and can easily be carried to places like your roof from gusts of wind and animals. As a result of being airborne, once on the roof of any neighborhood home, the algae will quickly spread from one roof to the next. This is particularly common in townhouse complexes and gated communities. It is only a matter of time before you or your neighbor’s algae begins to spread. Add to that the warm and humid climate of our Florida neighborhoods and you have ideal conditions for the rapid growth of algae.
