Moss, algae, lichens & mildew break down the bond between the granules and the asphalt shingle. The granules protect the asphalt from ultra violet light, which breaks down the asphalt. Tree debris on the roof is cleaned away gently with compressed air or by gently washing the shingle in order to avoid shingle damage! After cleaning, an application of Moss Out can be applied to assist in preventing the moss from coming back!

The Dangers of Moss for a Homewowner

Moss may seem harmless and even charming when it appears on rooftops, but it poses significant dangers that should not be ignored. For a homeowner, moss can be a persistent threat that compromises the integrity and longevity of roofs.

When moss takes root in the cracks and crevices of shingles, it begins to retain moisture, creating a breeding ground for rot and decay. This moisture retention can lead to the deterioration of roofing materials, including shingles, underlayment, and even the roof deck itself. Over time, the moss can cause structural damage, weakening the roof’s ability to withstand harsh weather conditions such as heavy rain, snow, and wind. Additionally, moss can clog gutters and downspouts, resulting in water backup and potential leaks into the interior of the building. It is crucial for roofing companies to address moss growth promptly to prevent costly repairs, maintain the safety of the property, and ensure the long-term functionality of the roof.

Having moss removed from a roof by professionals is highly recommended due to several important reasons. Firstly, professionals possess the expertise and knowledge required to safely and effectively remove moss without causing any damage to the roof. They understand the specific techniques, tools, and products needed to eradicate moss while preserving the integrity of the roofing materials. Additionally, professionals are equipped with the necessary safety equipment to work at heights, reducing the risk of accidents or injuries that could occur during DIY moss removal attempts.

Moreover, professionals can assess the underlying condition of the roof, identifying any existing damage or potential issues that may have been concealed by the moss. They can provide valuable recommendations for repairs or maintenance to ensure the roof remains in optimal condition. Finally, hiring professionals for moss removal saves time and effort for property owners, allowing them to focus on other priorities while leaving the task in capable hands. Ultimately, entrusting moss removal to professionals guarantees a thorough and efficient process, providing peace of mind and protecting the long-term health of the roof.
