MOSS ON ROOFS
Although most mosses pose no danger to humans, moss growth can severely compromise your roof.
Moss is incredibly effective at absorbing moisture, which means that any moisture trying to leave your roof will be captured.
PROCEDURES OF CLEANING
Moss and other growth can be removed in many different ways, here are some options.
We have you covered no matter what option you choose.
WHY SHOULD IT BE REMOVED
Moss filling up the voids between roof tiles can lift the tiles and expose what lies underneath to the outdoor elements.
This combination of excessive moisture and exposure to rainwater is what leads to serious structural damage such as rotting timber or damp insulation.
HOW TO PREVENT FUTURE GROWTH
Moss can cause a lot of damage to your roof, but contaminants like fungi, green algae, mould, mildew or lichen on your roof surface are potential hazards to health, so it’s important to treat the roof with biocide solutions to ensure there is no chance they will grow back in the near future.
We use and trust two brands of biocide being GK PRO and ALGOCLEAR PRO.
WHY MY ROOF?
Moss spreads via releasing spores like many plants. Moss growth is far more likely on damp, cool surfaces that don’t receive much sunlight.
This makes north-facing tiled roofs especially prone to moss and algae build-up, as they can quickly take root in the dark nooks and crannies between and under roof tiles, shingles or slates.
WHEN SHOULD IT BE CLEANED
Summer months provide ample amounts of sunlight and typically there is no rain or snow. With a dry surface to walk on, summer months are safer. Of course, the best decision you can make is to call on a professional for your roof maintenance.
