Your roof is your home's main defence against the elements. Leaving moss on your roof can compromise the integrity of your roof!
Moss acts like a sponge and absorbs moisture. If this is left on your roof it can cause leaks and dampness. Moss can also build up in gutters which can lead to further issues.
Moss can severely damage the structural integrity of any type roof. Moss is a simple plant that does not produce flowers and grows in blankets in natural environments. You commonly see moss covering trees or in a landscape of a forest canopy, which can be beautiful depending on the circumstances. However, moss growing on your roof top is not considered lovely and should be deemed as a nemesis to your roof.
Moss commonly thrives in environments that are damp and shaded. Moss absorbs the moisture from the damp environment and establishes roots on your roof causing the beginning of roof degradation. The roots can lift up shingles and constant moisture can lead to bacteria and mold growth. This eventually can lead to holes in your roof and leaks into your home. It is also dangerous to walk on a moss covered roof because it makes surfaces very slippery when wet.
Age and environmental factors can wreak havoc on your roof. Ignoring problems for too long can cause headaches down the road.
