Roof cleaning measures such as pressure washing can remove or roughen the surface of the roofing material, reducing the intended productive life of the roof. At best it is a messy, temporary solution which would need to be repeated frequently. This sort of procedure also does nothing to kill the spores that created the Algae and Black Mold. Plus, Pressure Washing will damage your roof! will give more details. Look at some of the damage it can cause below.
Copper strips is a natural “solution” to roof moss, algae and mold problems.
We feel Copper Strips perform far better then Zinc Strips do here in the Tampa, Florida area.
When fitted on a clean roof, the Copper Strip will HELP, but not totally prevent plant growth on your Florida Roof by exposure to air and water which causes the copper to oxidise, creating Copper Sulphate which runs down the length of your roof in the rain water. Gutter Cleaning helps to minimise unnecessary weight on the roof that can affect its integrity and longevity.
This is deadly to roof plant spores and will therefore HELP keep your roof free from Algae. This effect is obvious under copper vent pipes or lead flashing’s under chimneys.
