Mosses, lichens and algae are living organisms which only require moisture and minute quantities of mineral salts to grow. However they can grow on virtually any roofing material or surface.
Their root systems have the ability to bore into solid granite up to 12mm therefore once established on tiles, they allow the passage of water into the sub straight which gives rise to frost attack and shaling of tiles. Mosses will grow up under the lapse of tiles and cause capillary attraction of rainwater resulting in roof leaks. H
eavy moss contamination soaked by rain will considerably increase the weight load on a roof, once established these colonies lead to the rapid deteriation and breakdown of roofing materials eventually necessitating costly replacement.
