Roof Algae in New England
An issue that homeowners in New England may face concerning their roofs is algae. Algae on the roof of your home can be identified as dark streaks on your roof that usually appear to be black or brown in color.
The issue with algae is that the growth of algae spawns more growth of algae. As algae spores bloom on your roof they spew out more spores and algae continues to spread across your entire roof. The combination of humidity and shade create the perfect environment for the spread of algae.
Roof algae can be prevented, but if it has already taken hold on your roof it may be too late. Take advantage of a free estimate on your roof to understand the cost of a new roof for your home. Schedule one today by calling (508)689-7637.
