Roof Maintenance/Moss Control

DON'T LET MOSS RUIN YOUR ROOF!

Moss growing on a roof is not only unsightly, but is harmful and will greatly reduce the lifespan of your roof.  Moss will lift shingles, reduce water run off and feeds off the material that composite shingles are made of.  Many insurance companies are now requiring that homeowners maintain their roofs so they perform adequately.  A properly maintained roof reduces the probability of water damage to the home.  

Our system gently kills the moss and will not harm or damage your roof in the process.  Our system consists of removing loose debris, such as leaves, needles, twigs and dead moss, with a leaf blower. Remaining moss is then treated with an industry proven, EPA approved application of zinc sulfate.  This product is applied in a spray/liquid form or powder, depending on the situation.  Once the roof has been treated the moss will slowly begin to die off.  After the moss is dead and it's root system has lost it's grip from the shingles, it will begin to wither away and blow off the roof in time by letting Mother Nature do her work.  This depends greatly on the slope of the roof and the severity of the growth.  A second visit is sometimes needed to lightly brush and blow off remaining dead moss.  This results in a much cleaner roof, but there is also an additional charge for the second visit.  
A FEW FACTS ABOUT ROOF CARE:

When is the best time to treat a roof?  The best time is before moss starts growing.  The old analogy "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" applies perfectly to roof care. Removing loose debris and treating a roof annually is the best way to maintain appearance and keep your roof functioning properly.  The cost of annual maintenance is far less than waiting until your roof is infected.

Power washing, wire brushing, high pressure compressed air removal WILL cause roof damage!  These systems will promote asphalt shingle granule loss, tearing, dislodging and lifting.  Your roof warranty will be voided using aggressive cleaning methods.  Some things just can not be rushed.
