What causes roof moss growth?

Moss is fast-growing, spread by the spores it releases and is much more likely on damp, cool surfaces that see little sunlight. For this reason, you’ll find north-facing roofs are especially prone to it. Even the type of roof tile can affect moss growth with some materials more porous and therefore more susceptible.

 

With regular maintenance, you can tackle your moss problem but there are a few ways you can minimise moss regrowth. As seeds are often spread by branches, sticks, and twigs that drop onto your roof, cutting back those overhanging trees is a win-win and will allow for more sunlight exposure too.

We’d recommend keeping on top of gutter clearing too will help as that damp and dirty drainage system is a prime location for moss growth that spreads.

What problems can roof moss cause?

Moss is more than just unsightly, it is highly moisture absorbent and will capture that moisture trying to leave your roof. Wet moss is especially heavy, putting excess pressure on your roof structure made worse by the fact moss likes to grow between tiles and can even lift them up, exposing your roofing structure to the elements. Those winter months can be even more troublesome with the thawing of frozen moss leading to cracks in your roof tiles.
