If you live in the Portland or Vancouver area, then you’re familiar with cloudy and rainy days. Unfortunately, this is exactly the type of weather that moss and fungi need to grow and overtake your roof.
In a wet climate like the Pacific Northwest, it’s extremely important to maintain your roof and keep moss at bay. Moss soaks up moisture like a sponge which means a mossy roof is a perpetually wet roof.
The Pacific Northwest is known for its wet and rainy weather, and moss is a common sight across Washington & Oregon. Many homeowners in the area wonder, “should I remove moss from my roof?” The answer is yes. Not only does a mossy roof look bad, but moss can damage your roof by:
Whether you notice a small amount of moss on your roof or are dealing with a roof completely overgrown with moss, we can help remove and prevent moss from growing on your roof, and possibly save your roof from a more expensive roof repair. We specialize in moss removal, along with complete shingle roof cleaning and tile roof cleaning in Vancouver.
At Northwest Roof Maintenance, we offer a proven moss removal treatment to homeowners in the Portland and Vancouver area. Our roof moss removal process uses a combination of compressed air and soft brushing to clear away and kill moss on your roof.
So exactly how do we remove moss from your roof and prevent it from growing back?
Our roof moss removal process does not damage your shingles or tiles. Removing moss will help prolong the integrity of your roof.
Vancouver roof moss removal can cost around $1,000, depending on the size, condition, and type of roof you have. We provide free roof inspections, and will give you a free estimate on how much your roof moss removal and cleaning service will cost.
On tile and composition roofs, we use a preventative treatment to kill the moss. This treatment can take up to a few weeks to fully kill the moss. The moss on your roof will slowly turn a yellowish-brown color and eventually turn black.
We use tried and true moss preventative treatments to keep moss and other roof rot-causing organisms away from your roof. Our moss prevention treatments cover the entire roof, ensuring moss has nowhere to grow.
Yes, we do provide a warranty on our treatments. If your first application isn’t effective, we’ll come back within the warranty period at no cost to you!
Our moss prevention treatment can be applied even in the rain. We have two different treatments. One is used specifically when it is wet and the other during the dry months. The wet weather treatment is optimal for when we have our rainy Portland and Vancouver weather.
This is very dangerous and we do NOT recommend it. Every year, thousands of homeowners hurt themselves while trying to work on their roof. Additionally, if you’re not experienced working on roofs, you can cause a lot of damage.
On cement tile roofs a high-pressure wash may be necessary to free moss, mildew, lichen, and algae. This process can accelerate the deterioration of your roof, so we only use this method in extreme cases, or as required by HOA regulations.
