Homeowners in Texas live through the colossal forces that nature throws at their roofs — heat, hurricanes, hail, thunderstorms, tornadoes, and so forth. However, some things that affect your roof are found on a much smaller scale. Things That Grow On houses that receive the proper conditions of shade and moisture/humidity, algae, moss, lichens, or fungi may grow.

Those who live in the Austin area are well aware of the two biggest weather threats we face each year: hurricanes and tornadoes. Hurricanes form over the ocean and may move toward land.
