Have you noticed those black stains on shingles? It’s actually an airborne algae-like fungus that feeds on people’s asphalt shingles. It’s considered a very hearty strain of blue-green algae known as gloeocapsa magma. It actually feeds on the limestone in these shingles! It just travels through the air, lands on roof tops, and eats the limestone in the shingles. It’s because today’s typical shingles contain a lot of crushed limestone. The limestone is in the granules that provide UV protection for the shingle.
Our roofing products are UV resistant on their own. Plus, Endureed shingles contain no limestone. Our products can’t feed gloeocapsa magma. Our synthetic thatch shingles will look awesome for decades to come.
