When you are a homeowner, the roof of your property should be your star defensive player. Your roof not only protects you from the elements but keeps the elements outside. North Bay roof cleaning and moss removal is a necessary service in order to make sure it gets to stay in the game.
Throughout the year, your roof is subjected to weather-beating, animal traffic, organic debris from surrounding trees and plant life. These will collect and can cause damage over time. Leaves, sticks, needles and other plant carry-over retain moisture from the air, rain fall and even decomposition of larger pieces of debris. Moss will begin to grow in the moisture and the presence of other debris will help it thrive, moving over and under the shingles on your home.
Over time the retained moisture can damage the structural integrity of your roof, rotting out the area underneath shingles and even creating entry points into your home through the roof.
