Spring can be a great time of year. The flowers start blooming, the weather warms up, and more people head outdoors. One of the drawbacks of spring are the storms that follow the season in. When you live in an area that has bad storms in the spring, you want to do everything you can to protect your home. This means making sure your roof is prepped for the bad weather.
No homeowner likes to see it, but moss is a common problem on roofs throughout the U.S. Moss growth is particularly noticeable on the shady parts of roofs. With its shallow system of rhizoids, or small root-like structures, moss can hold moisture against your roof and do damage to it over time. A new composition roof costs an average of $18,800, so it makes sense to keep moss at bay and get as much life out of your roof as possible.
