    Post White marks on roof

    Hi there

    Just wondering if someone can tell me what these white marks on a roof means, how to get rid of it, and can I just leave it as it? It's worse on the south facing side.

    White marks on roof (north facing):

    Non-white marks on the other side of roof (east facing):

    Roof it seems is tile or some sort.

    Is it salt or tile absorbing water and needs replacing?

    if its colour steel it could be the colour wearing off, leaving the white undercoat behind, lots of 20 year old colour steel roofs doing this

    Best sort it before 25 December or Santa will think he's already been there and fly right past.

    Are there any leaks as a result of it? It looks as if its a tile roof so probably just due to the weather....perhaps see if you can spray something like 'spray and walk away' and see if it comes off or combine it with a pressure wash....
