Do you need to get rid of moss on your roof? Moss can cause real damage by pushing the tiles out of place or even by boring into some roofing materials. Once that happens, water damage can occur - potentially costing you thousands of pounds to put right. That's why it's so important to tackle moss before it becomes a real problem. It's not a difficult job, although there's a right and a wrong way to do it. So, what's the best way to tackle roof moss removal effectively?
The wrong way to tackle moss removal
Roof maintenance is a big deal because roof repair is such an expensive business. There are several ways you can attempt to remove moss from your roof - for example, you could cut down any overhanging trees to remove the shady conditions that encourage moss to grow or add a zinc or copper strip to the ridgeline. Both are effective but quite costly solutions.
That's why most people prefer to use some sort of moss removal method to keep the problem under control. And that's where your problems can start. Methods like pressure washing can actually damage your roof and water may penetrate under the tiles, causing leaks and damp. Scrubbing at the moss is no better, as it's easy to crack and break tiles that will then need to be replaced.
One other method is to try and create an extremely acidic environment where the moss just can't thrive. Unfortunately, over acidic solutions can cause most roofing materials to deteriorate - and in trying to get rid of one problem, you can create another that's even worse.
