People are often surprised to learn that the black staining on their roof is almost always algae and mold. More often than not, it appears on the North side of the roof where there is less exposure to the sun and moisture hangs around longer allowing it to flourish and grow.
Why do my shingles have black stains and streaks?
I occasionally hear “We never had these stains on our roof when I was growing up” from our customers. The short story – In the early part of the 70′s OPEC declared an oil embargo and the price of oil quadrupled. It was the end of the era of cheap energy. Shingle manufacturers were caught up in the mess like everyone else, and driven to look for cheaper alternatives to manufacture asphalt shingles.
The answer was limestone! Ground and milled, it made a perfect filler to add weight to the shingles and reduced the amount of asphalt needed to produce them. An added bonus of using limestone was that it actually helped make the shingles stronger and more weather resistant.
THE PROBLEM? Algae loves limestone and your roof is an “all you can eat” buffet!
