Streaks

We have white streaks on the exterior of our 2003 Bambi. We wash them off and in a few days they return. What is it?

You most likely have a white coating on the roof. Those coatings notoriously cause the streaks as moisture collects and then streaks down. A quality Ceramacoat won't do that. You might be able to stop the streaking if you paint over the old coating with a new seal coat.

You might check to see if you have birds roosting on top.

Thank you for the help. It's not bird poop! We'll try a coat of wax on the roof.
