That dis-colouration on your slate or tiles is not the result of dirt alone. It is caused by bacteria called Gleocapsa Magma. If the bacteria are left untreated it is soon followed by the growth of lichen and moss. Moss and lichen on the roof takes from the appearance of your house reducing its value.
