If you live in a humid or rainy climate, chances are you’ve had to deal with moss and algae on your roof, from time to time. Sure, it doesn’t seem very harmful at first, but actually, moss can cause significant damage to your shingles in just a few years. While it’s true that there are many ways to remove moss, it’s extremely important to keep a watchful eye, so that it doesn’t reappear and pose a further threat to your roof.
For Severe Moss Cases
When moss and algae become a serious problem, the usual remedy is an alkaline-based moss cleaner. When using this, make sure that the product is friendly to the surrounding plant-life, and that it won’t run-off into your gutters.
The Zinc Option
You can purchase zinc strips at your local hardware store, which are extremely effective in killing moss. Nail the strips into the roof, starting at the peak, and apply them every few feet. When it rains, the zinc will seep out of the strips, flow into the moss, and kill it.
