Reasons for a New Roof: Mossy Shingles
A mossy roof might look like a fairytale but moss growth can cause a host of problems that can significantly decrease the lifespan of your roof:
- Mold or bacteria.
- Holes. (Moss can grow beneath your shingles, lifting them up and creating gaps for water to seep into your home.)
- Water damage. (Moss retains moisture which can ruin your shingles.)
- Pests. (Moss attracts insects and rodents who feed off it.)
- Wood rot.
Never allow moss to grow unchecked. A little moss can easily be removed but structural damage caused by moss can lead to costly repairs.
