I have now have been to see this roof it's a bungalow. Does anybody have any experience in de mossing a roof? And advice for me on method. I'm only guessing to get up there with a roof ladder and a couple of scaffold boards and with a hard broom and scraper on pole work my way along roof. I have told the lady confidently it will take me 2 days and have quoted high so don't want finale hash of it.

roof ladder and work your way along mate if the moss is really bad itl be hard to use a scraper on pole from distance to get into all the wee crack depending on type of tile eaiser done if the roof is dry as moss comes off quicker imo

 

what would u use the scaffold boards for ?
