What Are Those Black Streaks?
The primary species of algae being observed is called Gloeocapsa Magma. This type of algae is contained in and transported through the air, and tends to collect and grow upon roofing structures. Natural pigments produced by this algae may cause a white or light colored roof to gradually turn brown or black.
The algae discolorations should not be confused with moss or tree droppings, which typically produce only localized discolorations. Besides looking bad, this algae also feeds on the limestone filler in your shingles. It is literally eating away at your roof.
