Services Roof Moss Removal
Once moss is established on your roof, it’s not a matter of if, but a matter of when will the leaks and problems begin. Moss will void a roofs’ warranty and with the average price of a new roof today costing between $10k-14k+… who needs those additional costs? Moss removal avoids this hassle and saves money by extending the life of your roof at a fractional cost of re-roofing. Combine that with our eco-friendly moss treatment to prevent regrowth for years of moss-free peace of mind.

Moss is a real concern on Vancouver Island, as we live in a rain forest climate. If you neglect the moss on your roof, it could cause damage to your home, business or strata. Moss absorbs moisture and establishes roots on roofs. The roots lift up shingles and can lead to increased moss growth. This will eventually create leaks and cause damage to the roof.
Removing moss can be done in multiple ways. The A1 method is dealing with the moss that typically grows on the edges of the shingles with some hand tools. If it is not done properly it could damage the shingles. We recommended that this service is taken care of by professionals. Dealing with a reputable company that is experienced and insured are some other points of consideration.
A BIG NO NO!!! Do not ever, never ever have your asphalt shingles pressure washed or use homemade chemicals to kill moss.
The A1 Way moss removal methods are efficient and safe, with the best results guaranteed. A1 offers a 2 year guarantee that you will not see moss on your roof. After all the bulk of the moss is removed, we perform a thorough cleaning of the roof and gutters. All of the moss and other debris on the roof is cleared off with a leaf blower. All of the moss, leaves, pine needles and dirt are then cleaned out of the gutters. For all of the moss and other debris that may have fallen to the ground- no need to worry, all of that is cleaned up and hauled away.
