black patches on roof timber

Postby roseflower » Thu Jul 07, 2011 7:41 pm

Hi does anyone know what black patches on a roof timber are? They seem dry not flacky or mouldy but have spread, tomber seems solid no smell either. Near to some lead flashing. No sign off water penetration. Do I need to treat before they get worse. Any ideas thanks

Simply Build It

You may have mould.
Mould comes in many colours.
The colour depends on what its growing on.
Buy a damp meter.
