It’s Not Old…It’s Mold!!!
Most roof and building stains are caused by growth of algae, lichen colonies or moss feeding on organic matter frequently found in roof & building surfaces. Unsightly black stains or streaks are caused
by a hardy type of algae called Gloeocapsa Magma. Lichens are a fungus, usually of the class Ascomycetes. This fungus grows symbiotically with algae, resulting in a composite organism characteristically
forming a crust like or branch growth.
The portion of your roof or building that receives the least amount of sunlight is more likely to have these ugly stains. This explains why some buildings may have more stains on one side than another.
Typically the northern and western exposure or in heavily shaded areas suffer the worst.
Moss and lichens are more than a cosmetic issue. By holding moisture against the roof surface lichens and moss cause damage to the mineral granule coating speeding up the wear of the asphalt shingle
surface in freezing climates. In the summer time, Heavy algae on roofs super heats the attics resulting in much higher cooling costs. Human exposure to air born mold, algae, and fungi is a well documented
