De-mossing roofs



Recommended Posts

brianbadonde

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

Taxlossloz best to wet it up first so the sh overspray doesn't do any damage, then start ur rinse on the lead first to neutralise the sh and u will be ok, the old white pvc can go (brown) [emoji849] but will come back white itself, test it first on a down pipe first
