Why You Should Hire the Pros for Moss Removal on Concrete Roofs

October 25, 2015 by ROTban Services Corp. clean roof blog

Moss removal on concrete roofs is vital to the longevity of your roof. If you allow moss to grow, it will compromise the integrity of the structure, permanently damaging the roof and generating an expensive list of repairs that must be performed to save the roof – or worse, you might have to replace it entirely.

If you see moss growing, you will want to deal with it right away. For some homeowners, it is tempting to make moss removal from concrete roofs a do it yourself project, but there are numerous benefits to having professionals handle your moss removal needs.

Simply brushing off moss or mechanically removing it is not enough. Professionals who deal with moss removal from concrete roofs know that to prevent moss from coming back, all of the tiny spores must be killed. ROTban is one of the best ways to do just that, as it cleans and sterilizes your roof and continually neutralizes the feeding system of microbes. And, the only way to use ROTban is to have a professional apply it.

By working with a professional team, you will also benefit from warrantied work. If you do it yourself, you are the one who has to deal with the problem if it comes back again – if you work with professionals offering a warranty, your roof is ensured to be moss-free for a specific period of time, and if that does not happen, the company will stand behind its guarantee and do what it takes to make your roof rot-free.

There are many disadvantages to common DIY moss removal methods, like zinc stripping and power washing. The most effective way to deal with moss is a chemical solution like ROTban, applied by a team with extensive skill and experience.
