A bit of moss growing on a stone fence or vines growing up a wall can give properties a rustic look but when you begin to notice moss on your roof, it is a problem. Throughout Ontario, homes and businesses are at the mercy of moisture. Invasive growth on your roofing not only starts to look awful, it can cause structural damage as well. Hiring a professional for your Newmarket roof cleaning and moss removal can help to improve visuals, prevent damage and protect your property.
Roof Care: What Is Weighing On Your Roof System
Roof clutter can collect over a period of months, or it can feel like it comes out of nowhere. All it takes is one strong gust of wind or heavy rain to dislodge organic debris from surrounding plants and trees. As leaves, sticks, seed pods, pollen, pinecones or other materials fall, they will need somewhere to land. Plants depend on water to survive so they are built for holding onto moisture and that is exactly what they will do, even when sat on your shingles.
Piled up debris creates a blanket across your roofing surfaces. This blanket holds moisture, blocks out the sun and creates an ideal environment for moss and mold to form. Once formed, moss spreads across surfaces, weaving over and under asphalt shingles, until it reaches vulnerable areas. When moisture reaches wood decking, it can lead to rot and softening.
Removing moss with a hard wire brush or power washing roofing, can strip away protective coatings and softened decking. This can contribute to water damage, infestations and other unexpected issues. Moss growth also makes surfaces slippery, paving the way for injury. All it takes is one misstep to fall off of a roof, but hiring a professional roof cleaning service means access to top of the line safety equipment.
