Why is Moss Bad for Roofing?
Moss and algae tend to grow in damp, shaded areas and can cause damage to your roof both directly and indirectly. If you allow large patches of moss to grow on your roof, these patches hold water against the surface of the roof, which can cause the roofing materials to rot. In addition, the water trapped by the moss pools in gaps between your roof’s tiles and as that water freezes and thaws it can pull the tiles apart, causing even more damage! However, removing your moss can be just as dangerous and cause just as much damage!
Roofs are not designed to hold the weight of a person or to be walked on, so call Empire Roofing who will use special techniques to remove the moss.
