Don’t let moss bully your roof.
There are a number of problems moss causes that can seriously harm your roof. These include:
- Thaw/Freeze – Moss soaks up water and swells. Freezing expands it. Drying shrinks it. This cycle can rip off whole shingles.
- Prying – Moss rhizomes grow beneath the granules on shingles. This can push them up and ruin your roof’s protective barriers.
- Roof Leaks – Moss stops water from running into gutters and pools it beneath shingles. This can lead to extensive leaks and rot.
- Surface Tension Loss – When tar dries out it loses surface tension and can no longer repel water.
