Why Do You Need To Remove Moss

Removing moss from your thatched roof isn’t just about keeping your thatched roof looking aesthetically pleasing. Leaving moss on your roof can not only attract birds and wildlife which can damage your roof, but it will also slow down how long it takes for your thatched roof to dry, which can decrease the lifespan of your roof substantially.

Why Choose Us To Remove Your Moss?

It can seem tempting to remove moss from your thatched roof yourself, but this should be avoided if at all possible as you run the risk of damaging your thatch roof yourself. Where possible you should always bring in master thatchers to work on your thatched roof, no matter how small the job seems to be.

What Causes Moss To Grow On Thatch Roofs

Moss and Lichen tend to flourish on roofs in in damp environments, and with Britain’s notorious wet and rainy weather, moss growth is often inevitable. Long periods of damp weather encourage the growth of moss and lichen on a thatched roof. 

De-mossing is a vital step in maintaining your thatched roof, as leaving it for a prolonged amount of time will allow it to continue spreading and will eventually affect the functioning and the durability of the roof.

Most people would try to remove the moss themselves by manually scraping it off, however, doing so will remove the thatch underneath and cause further damage to their roof. For this reason, we fully recommend our thatch moss removal services to fix your roof, as incorrect procedure will decrease the life span of your roof.

Simply Thatch will fully inspect your roof so that we can pinpoint the locations where the moss grows fastest and we can even help you prevent the spread in the future. As master thatchers, we are able to identify the areas that need cleaning as well as the causation for the growth.
