Gloucester Pressure Washing and Roof Cleaning and Deck Washing Company
Perhaps, like many people around Gloucester, you have moss or algae growth on the roof of your house. This can occur on most common roofing materials: asphalt, cedar shakes, concrete tiles, etc., and will shorten the life of your roof. People with moss or algae growth on their roofs tend to live in areas with higher than normal rainfall and humidity levels.

Moss can be of great concern to the Gloucester homeowner, and will shorten the life of the roof if left untreated. Just like a household sponge, the shallow root system of thick Moss growth can suck up and store more than four times its weight in water. That is exactly what your moss-laden roof is doing: bearing weight on your sheathing, rafters, etc. In addition, root activity and moisture significantly speed up the deterioration of your shingles.
