Why do homes in Streetsboro have unsightly black streaks on their roof?
What causes this problem? If you have ever wondered why this happens, then you are not alone. These black streaks are from algae called Gloeocapsa magma. This limestone eating algae feeds on the materials that make up shingles. These algae, in combination with other mold and mildew growth can give your roof a dingy look and can shorten the lifespan of your roofing materials, costing you money in expensive roof repairs.
