So, Whats Eating Your Roof?

If your roof is turning black or has areas of black streaking, it’s a sure sign that you have a roof eating bacteria called “Gloeocapsa Magma”.  That’s a mouthful. Don’t worry about remembering the name, that’s my job.  Just know that these pests will eat away at your shingles and take away from their life span.  Kind of like termites eating away at the structure of your house……eventually it will fail way before its time.   Do you remember seeing this problem 15 years ago?  Not as bad however understand that this is a bacteria and is spreading throughout the country and the northeast has a perfect climate for it to thrive.  Maybe we can blame it on the south or in this case maybe the southeast!!
