Those black streaks are called Gloeocapsa magma and they are algae. Gloeocapsa magma is nitrogen fixed and needs no nutrition to grow. The black streaks are the signs of the algae reproducing and leaving millions of dead cells to build up and cause the black streaks or, in many cases, a thick layer of black covering a large portion of your roof surface.
Algae is the number one reason for premature failure of roofs. Your roof could lose up to 50% of the service life from infestation of micro-organisms. These certain algae have what’s known as a filament root system that decomposes the roofing materials, their root systems can, and eventually will, remove the protective layer.
We start by applying a special cleaning solution to your roof. This is a special blend we mix specifically to the needs of your cleaning project, we then rinse your roof and then finally we apply a protective biocide treatment.

There are a lot of variables when it comes to cleaning and preventing algae growth. Sun light, the pitch of your roof, the colour and manufacture of your tiles, how close your neighbours are.
It all depends on the size of your home, the pitch of your roof, the material and the amount of algae growing on it. Our surveyor should be able to give you a good guesstimate time frame.
