When caring for your roof you'll likely run into all kinds of issues along the way. Gunk and other debris will form, especially if you do not schedule regular roof maintenance. We recommend having your roof cleaned, maintained and inspected professionally at least once a year (if not twice, depending on your property).
Moss on the Roof
Some people like the organic aesthetic of moss on a roof. While this might look nice in fairytales it's not something you want lingering on your roof. This is because it pulls in moisture and may break down the shingles. Because of this, you want to tackle moss on the roof before it turns into a bigger problem.
The best way to remove anything is to do what you can to prevent it from happening in the first place. If you have trees growing over your property you should trim the branches back. This allows more sunlight on the roof and will cut down on any potential mold growth. Also clear off debris regularly and clean out the gutters at least twice a year (once in the fall and once in the spring). If you have gutter guards, you need to remove the debris even more frequently as the leaves and other gunk will be pushed up against the shingles, holding any moisture and blocking proper drainage.
Give the Pros A Call
Climbing onto your roof can be dangerous, especially if there is moss or if you have tiles on the roof, so we don’t recommend that you handle roof maintenance yourself. When you call a professional, you'll know the roof is taken care of correctly, you’ll be safe, and you'll avoid causing additional damage to the roof. With the help of professionals such as the team at First Quality Roofing & Insulation, you'll maintain your beautiful roof, all while extending its life while avoiding potential damage.
