  • Removing moss/painting transite roofing

    The only practical way I can think of to remove moss from a transite roof is to pressure wash it. Do you know of any products/techniques that would be better?

    The shingles them selves are in very good condition but dull looking. Can they be painted? If so, what product would be best?

      Galvanized sheet metal is a good source of zinc. Allow about 1" to hang below the ridge cap shingles

        Turns out the black roof is actually light gray. All the black is just moss growth and slippery as he11 once wet. I don't have the time to do the rest of the roof as just this one took 5 hrs. Insurance co wanted the moss off the roof before they would issue coverage. Hopefuly he was talking about the green moss and has no idea about the black. Snow will be flying before to long and a bit of moss on the roof is not exactly a priority at the moment.

          When I was in Vancouver, B.C. 10 years ago the Home Depot sold Zinc rolls about 3" wide (not Galvanized sheet metal). I asked what they were for and they told me to stop moss growth on roofs (it rains alot in B.C. and roof moss is a problem there). You slip it under the top row singles, exposing an inch or so and when it rains some zinc salts will wash onto the roof and kill the moss...eventually.
