Roof Moss Removal

What Is Roof Moss Removal?

Roof moss removal is the process of removing moss from your roof. This can be done in a number of ways, but the most common method is power washing. Power washing involves using a high-pressure stream of water to remove moss, dirt, and debris from your roof.

Though the act of power washing may seem like a task that you can perform on your own, especially if you’ve power washed other areas of your home, such as your porch or your walkways, power washing the roof is another story. At IronHead Roofing, we recommend leaving moss removal to our experts in order to prevent and reduce the risk of injuries. Our team has years of experience working on roofs, so we know how to take the necessary steps to ensure the job is done correctly and safely.

While moss growing on your roof may make you feel as though you’re living in a picturesque fairytale cottage, the truth of the matter is that moss can cause huge problems for the integrity of your roof.

There are a few reasons why roof moss removal is important, the most important being that it can help to extend the lifespan of your roof. Moss can cause damage to your roof in a number of ways, including:

Wearing Away At Roofing Materials:

As moss grows on your roof, it will hold moisture close to the surface of your shingles. This moisture can freeze and thaw as the temperature changes, which can cause your shingles to crack, split, or break.

Blocking Roof Ventilation:

In order for your roof to stay in good condition, it needs proper ventilation. When moss grows on your roof and blocks vents, this can trap heat and moisture under the surface of your roof, which can lead to the deterioration of your roofing materials.

Creating Opportunities For Leaks:

As we mentioned, moss can hold water against the surface of your roof, which can seep under shingles and cause leaks. Not only will this cause damage to your roof, but it could also lead to water damage in other areas of your home, such as your attic.
If you are experiencing any of these problems, then it’s time to call IronHead Roofing for moss removal or in more extreme cases, emergency roof repair. Contact us today to schedule a consultation!
