Stain on my brick


Hi guys,

Tried this post in the roofing section, and didnt get any feedback. You guys have any ideas?

I basically have these black marks / streaks on my brincks, and I think its from the rain water rubbing off the flashing or something...do you think if I installed new flashing I could avoid this going forward?

Here are some pictures...







Any info / feedback would be appreciated!

Thank you.

James

It is best you try first a simple cleaning solution on one part and see how it goes. I found this article at ehow.com

You need a ladder though to reach those stained part. If it wont work, check the real probable cause by checking your roof. Maybe it's not water, or something is leaking from there.
