    I have been asked to de-moss a roof. The angle of the roof is probably shallow enough that I could walk on it. I can borrow a roofing ladder. I was thinking of getting up there with a wire brush and simply brushing moss off and bagging it up. Any thought's guys? Would iy be better to pressure wash it off? I don't really fancy this way as I would rather do it by hand off a roofing ladder as I would feel this is the safer option.

    Scraping a roof is a long tedious procedure that will takes weeks to achieve a ok job
    People say pressure washing a roof is bad but scraping a roof is worse
    The granular coating in most tiles is long gone anyway
    Now I'm not dating get up there with the turbo but a good software sytem way out performs
