    Why do it?

    A large build-up of moss and algae on roof tiles and other natural growth is likely to cause you big issues with your roof and the life-span of the tiles will over time be affected too. If you ignore your roof, you’ll find these plants will swiftly grow uncontrollably with their roots working their way into weaknesses in the roof tiles, gradually widening them over the course of time until cracks appear. Like all plants they need water to thrive, and when it rains, they’ll work like a sponge holding as much water as they can. As it finds its way in the cracks into your roof it might well cause serious and costly deterioration to the rafters and joists. Also you could well find moss that has dislodged and rolled down the roof finding itself in your gutter which in time can lead to overflowing rainwater from your gutter which damages and soaks into your fascia boards.
