Roof of a home covered in moss. IBEX Roof provides safe roof moss removal in Vancouver WA, Olympia WA, and Portland OR

Here in the Pacific Northwest, shingles can quickly become stained as accumulated leaves and pine needles decompose on them. Even roofs that are not under a tree canopy can develop unsightly black streaking due to algae and moss growth. In addition to affecting your roof’s appearance, accumulated debris and organism growth can also result in costly issues, such as leaks.

Your roof is one of the biggest investments you can make on a home, so it isn’t something that is cheap to replace. This is why IBEX Roof offers safe roof maintenance services, including roof moss removal–which doesn’t require pressure washing or harsh chemicals which can damage your roof.

Moss Treatment for Roofs

As part of our roof maintenance program, we’ll clean every bit of loose debris from both the roof and the gutters in addition to clearing accumulated moss while keeping your property tidy and your landscaping intact. Because we’re a roofing company and not a cleaning company, we have an in-depth understanding of how to properly clean a roofing system. This means we’ll NEVER:

  • Pressure wash the shingles, as it voids their warranty
  • Use harmful chemicals that can accelerate shingle deterioration
  • Disturb any part of the roofing system, thus ensuring it retains its watertight seal

Is it Bad to Have Moss Growing on Your Roof?

Many homeowners get concerned when they look up and see moss or algae growing on their roofs. Fortunately, algae and moss are non-toxic and they don’t eat away at your roofing as mold does. However, if you do have moss or algae on your roof, we recommend you have your roof cleaned. This will ensure water and debris don’t get stuck underneath your roof shingles and it also provides curb appeal.

Regular moss or roof cleanings should get rid of any debris that doesn’t belong on your roof and dramatically reduces the chances of mold on your home. We will also inspect your roof during cleanings for any necessary repairs to prolong the life of your roof.

Roof Moss Removal Services

Moss and algae on your roof are not only unsightly, but they can also contribute to water damage. Don’t destroy your roof with a pressure washer. Instead, contact IBEX Roof. We follow a two-phase moss removal process which will safely remove the moss from your roof without impacting its integrity.

  1. Treat roof using a non-harsh cleaner
  2. Wait 6-8 weeks to let moss die off and unroot from the roof
  3. Scrub the roof with a brush to clear any debris
  4. Re-treat for moss

See our process in action in the video below.

Sometimes, it takes more than one treatment to remove all of the moss, depending on how much you have. So, if you notice moss on your roof, don’t hesitate to have it cleaned. Poorly maintained roofs can lead to leaks and damage. Contact us today for your roof moss removal estimate!
