Why Is Moss Bad For Your Garage Roof?
Your garage is an extension of your home and therefore, it requires the same level of attention and maintenance to ensure it’s properly protecting your vehicles, as well as any items stored inside.
While moss growth isn’t bad for your family’s health, it leads to multiple issues that significantly shorten the roof’s lifespan.
The most important thing to remember is that moss retains water. This “moisture blanket” coating your shingles makes your roof susceptible to mold, rot, bacteria growth, structural damage (especially if your garage has drywall), and insect infestation. Moss can also lift or move shingles, creating holes and cracks that allow even more moisture to leak through your roof.
If moss growth has begun to deteriorate your garage roof, don’t wait for leaks to wreak havoc on the property inside. Contact Streets Specialized Services today for garage roof replacement. Call 716-748-9285 or request your free service quote.
