Go to your Hardware Store as they have some great products out there for getting moss off the roof of one's house. One mixture would be 1/4 cup of trisodium phosphate (TSP) and one quart of household bleach in 1 gallon of water. Do NOT use a pressure washer on composite roofs, as it can loosen the granules from the shingles, reducing its lifespan by 3 to 5 years. Don't forget those gutters! Be safe, and wear good runners or gumboots with good tread to prevent sliding off the roof.

How do you kill moss on your roof without damaging the shingles?

Chlorine Bleach. Simply pour over the moss, wait a day or two and it will come right up without damaging the shingles. You can even sweep it off with a broom. Since the bleach won't react with the asphalt in your shingles, it is perfectly safe to use. I have used a product called moss off. It comes in a sprinke can & you sprinkle it around the ridge of the roof. Then next rain activates it and the runs down to cover the roof. Works pretty good & its not too expensive

What will moss do to asphalt shingles?

Moss will hold water, and eventually rot the shingles. (Added) Moss puts down roots into the shingles, loosening the top granular protective layer. In addition, it will leach out the oils which give the shingle flexibility, drying and cracking them and leading to shingle loss and premature roof replacement. The additional water will freeze during the winter, lifting the shingles up, loosening the nails and allowing for shingle loss during winds, and for water penetration into the sheathing. Many a moldy attic has been traced to moss on the roof, which is why insurance companies are now starting to dictate it be removed safely (no pressure washing!) by a professional roof cleaning company.

Does dawn kill moss?

"YES"... 4 oz dawn ultra, the blue liquid, ( not the anti-bacterial), 4oz to 1 gallon of warm water.. I applied to moss around the yard, it killed the moss, but all the grass too and now I have dead spots all over the yard... It must be very toxic in the soil because new seeding will not grow in the spots either.... I then sprayed the moss on the roof, it killed the moss better than the "moss killer" from the hardware store.....
