What If I Have Plants Growing on My Roof in Franklin?

Plants grow on a roof and in a rain gutter.

Moss grows on roofs in shady, rainy, and humid climates, like the weather conditions in Franklin. If the growth is not removed from the roof shingles, the shingles can stain and become damaged. Damp roofing materials allow moss and lichens to take hold and multiply. Eventually, the roofing materials can rot, and when rot sets in, mold can flourish.

Some homeowners try to clean their roofs by pressure washing them. Although pressure washing will remove moss, it can also damage or remove shingles and create more of a problem. Scraping moss also can damage the roof, causing shingles to rip, tear, and crack.
