Do you need professional moss removal?

Moss can be a beautiful addition to your garden, but when it starts growing on your roof, it becomes a problem. Not only is moss ugly to look at, but it can also cause damage to your roof. If you’re dealing with moss on your roof, don’t worry – we’re here to help. Uncontrolled moss on your roof can cause serious damage that leads to costly repairs. With our help, you can keep your roof moss-free and extend the life of your home.

The Problem With Moss

Moss is a very common problem for homes and is generally found in damp places that receive low levels of sunlight; it especially likes north facing roofs. Whilst it may seem fairly harmless, moss has been known to slowly degrade roof tiles, leading to them becoming worn and brittle and eventually allowing water into homes.

Loose moss is also known to fall into gutters creating blockages and overspills that cause water damage to property, that in turn incurs additional expense for repair.

There’s no specific roof type that moss prefers and it will happily grow on most roofing materials including asphalt, concrete or slate tiles. This makes regular moss removal a must if you want to keep a roof in pristine condition.

Many people try to tackle this problem themselves, usually using a jet wash to remove the moss. However this method of removal can lead to further problems as the high pressure spray wears away at the uppermost layer of your shingle tiles, leaving them susceptible to breaking.

Moss grows very little in summer so this is normally a good time to get it removed. During the fall with moderate rain fall, moss kicks into gear , so treating right before this time of year is always advised. However please talk to the team about removal, and they will be able to advise the best course of action.
