Roofing Over Roof Moss

We see some pretty crazy things when we’re driving from house to house and always take time to look at other Portland roofing contractors work. recently we drove by and saw this Portland roof getting ready to be replaced. The entire roof has been loaded and is ready to be worked on which means whatever is currently on this roof is going to get a layer of felt and asphalt shingles placed over it.

You can see a large layer of roof moss laying on the roof underlayment of this house. Believe it or not, the roof contractor for this job is going to roof right over this roof moss without taking the time to clean it off. We’ve talked several times about the problems that can occur when roof moss gets underneath your asphalt shingles. The roof moss will physically lift up your shingles allowing water to get to your fasteners and cause a leak in your roof. What do you think is going to happen if you plant roof moss underneath a layer or asphalt shingles?

This kind of problem simply wont happen if you choose Roof Life of Oregon for your roof replacement project.
