Why is MOSS bad for your roof?
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!
Moss between and under the tiles will also expand when frozen, causing movement. Weakened tiles are also brittle, so movement can cause them to fracture quite easily causing potential leaks.
With a heavy downpour of rain, moss growing on the roof can dislodge falling into your guttering, restricting the flow of water and blocking down pipes and drains. Rain water from overflowing gutters can get into the eaves causing damp and mould, and the soffits can also rot.
Your roof is the most important part of your home to maintain because it’s most exposes to the elements. Many Housing Associations and Local Authorities have introduced roof cleaning as part of their general maintenance programmes. If you want to keep your roof in good order, then keeping it clean is essential.
