Why do homes in Sheffield Lake have unsightly black streaks on their roof?
While you might think that these black streaks are from dirt or from our long winters, they aren’t. In fact, they are from Gloeocapsa Magma, an aggressive limestone eating algae that feeds on the materials that make up shingles. The combination of this algae as well as other mold and mildew growing on your roof’s surfaces can give your shingles a dingy look. It can even shorten the life span of your roofing materials, creating an expensive repair for you and your family.
