We are committed to providing quality workmanship, a professional relationship with customers and a long term commitment to your needs.

Moss and lichens are more than a cosmetic issue. By holding moisture against the surface, lichens and moss wear down the asphalt surface in freezing climates by increasing frost damage to the mineral granule coating on the shingles. Because moss or lichens are growing on the surface and hold moisture on the roof longer than other areas, these growths can reduce the life of the roof.

A buildup of water speeds up wear and tear. In freezing climates, there may be faster frost damage, cracking, and wear of the shingles under the moss or lichens. Even in non-freezing climates, the roots or growth structures of moss or lichens eventually penetrate and separate the shingle materials, speeding their demise.

Anyone who lives in a part of the country where there is plenty of rain and humidity fights a continuous battle with moisture-loving organisms. Left alone, these invasive culprits will ruin shingles in just a few years. Several ways to remove fungi exist, but vigilance is always necessary to reduce the damage from spores that continue to reappear over time.

Don’t let moss, algae, mold and lichens get the best of your roof. Call us now to schedule a free consultation to see what we can do for you.
