Los Angeles Roofing Tip of the Month: The Importance of Removing Moss from Your Roof

In areas with high level of moisture, it is not uncommon to encounter moss growth on your roof. Most people will usually think that moss is pretty harmless. Some of them will even think that it adds to the aesthetic appeal of your property. It gives a certain sense of charming and quaint ambiance. Moss on your roof will not be a good thing.

Why You Should Remove Moss on Your Roof

The moss can compromise the integrity of your roof structure. If you allow the moss to grow in your roof materials, this patch will retain water that can cause the rotting of the roof. During the winter season, the trapped water will freeze that will rip the tiles apart.

- Moss can hold a great deal of moisture and it is constantly wet. This can make your roof susceptible to rotting.

- Moss will consistently grow. As it grows, the roots of the moss will be pushing the tiles and shingles and can displace the roofing materials. Therefore, your roof will acquire considerable damage.

- Due to rotting, our roof can end up with several holes that will eventually lead to leaking.

- Additionally, rodents and bugs can be attracted by the moss. You will not only deal with a roof problem; you will also be addressing a pest and wildlife infestation problem.

- You will be surprised on how thick the growth of moss can be in your roof. This can weigh substantially. In addition, it can also hold a great amount of moisture that can dramatically increase its weight. Basically, your roof is not designed to hold this weight.

- Moss can have a negative effect on the appeal of your house. If you are planning to sell your house, some people will treat this as a red flag. This will possibly cost you thousands of cash.

Prevention and Removal of Moss

It pays to have a preventative measure that will not only stop the moss from growing continuously but will also kill it. Applying a zinc treatment that is water based can kill the moss. The solution that you will choose should be suitable on your roofing materials. For those who have a cedar shake type of roof, a copper solution might be the best answer. Copper will not only kill the moss in your roof, it will also protect the roof structure and repel the insect.

How the Roofing Contractor Remove Moss

For those who already have moss problem in the roof, the best way to do it is to seek the professionals. They will start by brushing the moss gently using their hand that will remove the shingles. They will then use compressed air to blow the moss that has loosened and the debris. They will make sure that every corner of your roof will be covered.

Finally, they will remove the moss and clean up the debris. They will then apply moss prevention treatment on your roof. This is the best way to keep you roof protected.
