If the mold is showing on the underside of the overhang of your roof, it is likely that the heat escaping from your house is melting it. You may need a deeper overhang. Your roofing material may also be failing at that point, causing a leak. Contact a licenced contractor or roofer for further information.

If by "inside the roof" you mean the underside of the plywood up in the attic or crawlspace, the issue of melting ice is still true and water is leaking into the home. Water is coming in and freezing causing the appearance of frost. The black is mold and will eventually destroy more than just your roof. Your family's health can be directly affected by the presence of mold in your home. Get a licensed contractor or certified roofer to inspect. Proper insulation and ventilation will keep your roof functioning for years. A few hundred dollars now in repairs will save thousands later if you have to replace the entire roof! If it is in one area, there is an air leak causing warm moist air to escape from the living area. commonly found over bath vent fans and ceiling fixture boxes. seal air flow with spray foam, not just insulation. if over large area then you need more roof ventilation. my experience shows "code" ventilation isn't enough.

In some countries they sit inside the bus and on the roof of the bus. Myself, I'd prefer the roof because of the fresh air.

The purpose of having roof vents are the following; preserving the life of the roof, reducing the moisture inside the roof, maintaining the right ventilation inside the roof to avoid molds and moisture and for aesthetic and style purposes as well.

Because white reflects heat whilst black absorbs it therefore a white roof will keep the house cooler as the suns rays will bounce back off of it whereas a black roof will absorb the suns rays.

Not enough ventilation. Moisture from inside the house is condensing on the underneath side of the roof.

Hot air rises, so to keep the heat in the building, you need to insulate the inside of the roof.

You pull the black roof top off, and take the tip of it and wedge it inside of the hole in the house and the play button should come out

The colour of the roof has a significant effect on the temperature inside a house unless there is a very large amount of ventilation in the roof space to disperse warm air, and a very high level of ceiling insulation. A dark roof will absorb much more heat than a light roof, and will conduct or radiate this heat into the roofspace and then into the house.

Snow insulates the roof, keep the heat from radiating out. That's why an igloo works.

It is normal for some dogs to have a black roof to their mouth; it is simply part of their natural colouration. If the black part looks lumpy or is growing oddly then you should take your dog to the vet.

Not enough ventilation under the roof and moisture collects on the underneath side.
