Removing Moss from Cedar Shake Roofing
Moss needs moist shade and a humid environment to grow. Around Western North Carolina, the conditions have been perfect for moss growing on roofs! Even cedar shake shingles may eventually get this type of growth. We see it more on the north side of homes as well as shady sides due to the lack of direct sun hitting the roof surface.
Effects of Moss on Cedar Roofing
Moss may grow on the forest floor, but it can prove extremely damaging to your roof’s structural integrity and protection. Moss will hold moisture and damage the integrity of the roof. Excessive wet roofs can ultimately begin issues like rot, mold, and mildew. These environments lead to moss growing as well. First things first, remove the moss on your cedar shake shingles to prevent a breach in the surface. Calling a professional to come in to know how to proceed with safety and the right solutions and tools is advantageous to DIYers in your home asset.
Many home inspectors are taking notice of the roof’s integrity and noting in their reports. If you’re in the market to sell eventually, take notice of this particular home we cleaned. The house is in Cashiers, and moss was growing on the north side of the home. We use the same process for cedar shake shingles or asphalt shingles in the cleaning process. Low pressure and chemicals are applied. This application breaks down the mold, mildew, and moss. Rain will eventually wash it off after our initial treatment.
