In the Pacific Northwest, moss on roofs is commonplace in almost all neighborhoods, especially west of the Cascades where moisture and trees are abundant. Moss can affect a roof in many different ways. It can cause a shortened life for your roof, leaking, cracked shingles and mold. Leaking can cause damage to your insulation which can in turn effect your heating or cooling costs. You may be saying to yourself “how can all this happen simply from moss growing on my roof?” We will explain.
When moss builds up on a roof, the life will be reduced because moss acts as a catalyst in the wearing down process of a roof. While living on a roof, moss retains water and therefore puts more weight and strain on your shingles. Another result of moss retaining water is that the occurrence of mildew and mold is promoted by the extra time in which your roof and the moss on it remains wet. As moss grows on a roof, shingles will be pushed up by the moss which grows underneath it. This causes shingles to become misaligned or dislodged. It also allows a gap for moisture to seep in under the shingle and cause leaking and mold growth underneath your shingles. This also contributes to rotting of the wood under your shingles.
When the symmetry and placement of your shingles become compromised by the growth of moss, the intended flow of water down your roof is also compromised. Instead of flowing smoothly down the surface of your roof; the water is diverted in different directions. This allows more water to flow underneath the shingles of your roof, potentially causing leaks in your roof. When leaks occur, your insulation can become damaged and not work as efficiently as possible. This can affect your heating and cooling costs.
Removing moss and mold can add years to the life of your roof by removing the strain of added weight of retained water and keeping your shingles straight and flat, allowing water to travel easily downward.
When pressure washing, a roof can be severely damaged if not done by someone with the experience and know-how to do the job correctly. We at Pro Curb Appeal are experienced and know how to clean and protect your roof properly. By using trusted products and experienced workers you can know that your roof will be properly cleaned and protected.
