Consequences of moss on roof

With all of the rain and moisture in our corner of the world, moss on your roof can be a real problem. Forget all of those romantic notions of moss and English country gardens. Moss on your Oregon roof can lead to roof failure and moisture inside of your home.

About moss on your roof

Moss is a living organism that forms when the combination of light soil or organic matter, moisture and shade is just right. While moss can be a charming addition to your shade garden, moss on your roof is something to be avoided for a number of reasons. First of all, moss on your roof is generally a black color, not the verdant green you find in the countryside, and can be unsightly. Plus, moss holds moisture and can cause your roofing material to age prematurely, especially if you have a wooden or asphalt shingle roof. A compromised roof can lead to mositure under your eaves and inside your attic.
