3) What is the algae
(or fungus) found on roofs?
In certain moist areas, algae can grow on shingles. Although the algae
has no proven effect on shingle life, it does stain or discolor the
shingle. Commonly (and usually incorrectly) called fungus, this algae
staining can be unattractive. The algae-containing stains can be dramatically
reduced by the use of special copper granules.
4) What are
The typical ice dam is a buildup of ice that forms near the eaves or gutters
as the result of interior heat escaping into the attic and through the
roof decking. The heat melts the snow and ice on the upper areas of the
roof resulting in melted water. This water runs to cold, lower
areas or eaves and, depending on conditions, can refreeze. Leaks occur
water finds its way under the shingles or behind fascias or cornices.
