Guardian Roofing’s Lori Swanson sits down to answer some of your most frequently asked moss questions! In the Pacific Northwest, all the moisture makes the perfect environment for moss to thrive. Moss spores will settle in debris in damp and shaded areas of your roof. Moss roots in the granules of asphalt shingles, pulling them away from the base of the shingle. If you wait too long and then try to remove the moss, it will take the granules with it. That’s why it’s important to keep up with roof maintenance. Moss can also cause water damage to your roof. It acts like a sponge and holds water, keeping the shingles wet. Moss can even build up into a barrier, causing water to run in a different direction across the roof, which may result in water damage. At Guardian, we recommend that you hire a professional roofing contractor to conduct your roof cleaning to ensure safety and quality of work.

The cost of removing moss from a roof can vary depending on the size of the home, the level of moss growth, and several other factors. Guardian offers a free roof inspection in order to give an accurate estimate of how much the service will cost. The best way to keep your roof free of moss is to have a professional inspect, clean, and maintain your roof every year.

We at Guardian pride ourselves on being the original Make Your Roof Last company. That is why we offer routine annual maintenance through our Guardian Roof Protection Plan and we suggest that you have a roofing professional inspect your roof each year to make sure it is in good condition.
