The problems moss can cause to your roof

Roofs are the perfect environment for moss and lichen to grow, houses in rural areas near trees and woods tend to be the worst affected due to the shady and damp conditions. Houses located in estates that experience frequent shade can also experience extensive moss growth.

Properties that have large amounts of moss often experience damage to roof tiles such as fissures and small cracks. It is also common to see roof tiles to become porous due to the roots of the plants. Rainwater can then infiltrate these cracks and pores, causing leaks and more serious damage to your property.

In large quantities moss can weigh substantial amounts, putting extra strain on your roofing and its supports. This weight comes from the ability of lichen and moss to retain large amounts of water, it is common for this excess moisture to cause damp issues within your property. Also, moss can poorly impact the amount of heat your property can absorb resulting in higher heating bills.

As moss and lichen create spores, it can quickly spread and establish itself in surrounding shingle, driveways and gardens, increasing the problem area. Removing moss not only prolongs the life of your roof, but can also increase the curb appeal of your property. Cleaning your roof provides instant revitalisation and makes your property look well maintained and cared for, particularly to potential buyers. A roof is a big investment, so keeping it in a good condition is vital.
