What are those dark stains on my roof and should I be concerned?
The stains are a airborne fungus called Gloeocapsa magma. Shingle formulas have changed over the years to include extenders like limestone, cellulose and other various wood products. Less and less petroleum and felt ingredients are being used. The unexpected results were destructive algae infestation (black stains) on millions of homes across America. The stains also attack clay tile and wood shakes roof material.
