Dirty Roof?

Could Cause damage worth thousands

Two Words:


That fancy, scientific word above is simply referring to bacterial fungus commonly found on roofs in Charlotte, Nc and its surrounding states. It can be mistaken for algae but commonly presents itself as black streaks and stains on the roof. This bacteria can grow fast on roofs due to its protective barrier to UV rays and feeding off of moisture.

This Bacteria is very harmful to roofs in that it eats away at the limestone granules that are within the roof shingles and will destroy your roof over time. This causes gaps and/or holes that can rot out the wood underneath and cause leaks and other damage.
