We encounter roofs in the throes of a nightmare invasion every single day. And the evil culprit? Black Streaks.

When Black Streaks Invade Your Roof

It isn’t all that uncommon to see black streaks on roofs in the San Antonio area. But this is more than an eyesore: it’s an invasion in action. Allow us to explain:

  • – What are black streaks? They’re actually a type of bacteria called Gloeocapsa Magma.
  • – Is that alive? Yes.
  • – Why is on my roof? Your roof is its favorite type of food. It thrives on the limestone particles in shingles.
  • – Why do black streaks grow? The more Gloeocapsa eats, the more it grows.
  • – So when I see black streaks, I’m seeing its path of destruction? Yes. we know – it isn’t pretty.
