Tiger striping is caused by the oxidation process of your gutters. This oxidation process is triggered when water flows in and out of your roof. This runoff contains dirt and debris that can combine with moisture from precipitation and mix with the dirt in your gutters. This mixture can result in a stream that runs along your gutters. When the stream mixes with the dirt it forms a stain that can be difficult to remove.
