In Vancouver Island most North-facing roof areas that receive little sunlight are prone to moss. Moss does not grow in equally everywhere. First it develops in perennially shady areas and in places that tend to be cool and damp. Moss on roofs begins thin and thickens through time, and as it thickens it will start to lift the shingles and begin to allow moisture through the roofing materials. This thick moss will also hold moisture in one location for long periods of time, which will break down the roofing materials.
Islanders Moss Treatment solutions are safe and Eco-Friendly. We only use Hydrogen Peroxide based solutions for all Moss Treatments in Nanaimo and Mid-Vancouver Island.
When is comes to Roof Cleaning, Islanders are the preferred choice in roof maintenance. We handle concrete roofing, tile roofing, metal roofs, and some just need a quick cleaning to stop restricted water flow.
Moss and Algae growth on your roof, at a minimum, is an unsightly nuisance. Moss build-up can lead to roof damage or shingle blow-off if left unchecked. Keeping branches trimmed back from the roof and removing any debris that begins to accumulate should be part of a regular roof maintenance program. If moss or algae becomes visible, call Islanders and we can provide a treatment to keep it from getting worse. Our Moss Treatments are 100% environmentally friendly and safe.
