First Impressions Matter
It is imperative to understand the science behind roof algae and lichen infestation, and why ignoring this condition can result in the loss of up to 50% of the roof's lifespan - a very expensive consequence.
The technical name for what is causing the black roof stains is Gloeocapsa Magma, an airborne algae that feeds on limestone filler in your shingle material. Lichens are a parasite of algae and subsists on it as it's food source. Notice the drawing to the right and you will see the symbiotic relationship that these two spores have with each other. Lichen infestation accelerates the damage to the shingles with root tentacles that embed themselves in the protective shingle granules. With time, this results in the granules dislodging creating voids that expose the shingle mat to weather and UV rays. Moss acts as a moisture trap preventing cedar and asphalt roofing material from fully drying out resulting in rot.
