The Pacific Northwest is a hostile environment for roofs. All the “liquid sunshine” we get creates the perfect environment for moss and algae to grow like crazy. In addition to moss being an eyesore, it is detrimental to the lifespan of your roof. Moss holds a lot of moisture, and when it grows on your roof, it lifts up your shingles and draws that moisture underneath them which can open the door for water damage.
Moss also can produce leaks, clog gutters and downspouts, and impede water from flowing freely off your roof. Moss can spread relatively easily from roof to roof as airborne spores are capable of infesting entire neighborhoods at a time.
Prevention Is Key
Prevention is the best answer to mold and algae. Once moss has gotten a grip on your roof, removing it can actually damage your roof’s shingles, so preventing it from ever getting a foothold is the best approach. We recommend hiring us to treat your roof every year to keep moss and algae from ever growing.
Moss Removal in Eugene, Oregon
While prevention is very important, it won’t help you if moss has already gotten onto your roof. Our moss removal process is designed to be as gentle as possible to avoid damaging your roof any further. We remove moss manually and perform a light power wash to remove any algae that may still be present. After, we spray your roof with a zinc spray which will help to prevent moss and algae from returning.
