Moss can be quite harmful to your asphalt roof shingles. Moss and lichen feed on the limestone in the shingles and slowly erode the roofs integrity. Moss holds moisture against the surface of the roof and if not addressed can shorten the life of the roof by up to 10 years.
Rather then “Blast away” or “Scrape” moss off your roof, Next Level will treat your roof with a liquid solution that will kill it 100% right down to the roof. The treatment is so effective that we will warranty the service for up to 5 years. Rather then replace your roof with brand new shingles, Next Level’s roof cleaning process may be able to extend the life of your roof for a fraction of the cost of a new roof.

Our moss treatment process begins by protecting your plants and pre-wetting any areas that could be exposed to overspray. We gently remove some of the thicker moss with a soft broom and use a blower to clear the roof of debris.
After a thorough cleanup, we treat the roof with our effective liquid solution, which is carefully applied by our trained technicians. With this process, the remaining moss will gradually decompose and weather down with the rain over the next few weeks, leaving your roof looking clean and healthy.
When moss begins growing on an asphalt roof, it imbeds its roots into the shingles, and so proper removal is essential in order to avoid any unnecessary damage.
Here’s a few things to keep in mind when removing moss on an “Asphalt Roof”:
We follow the only process that the Asphalt Roof Manufacturers recommend, which is to softwash the roof or “treat” it with a liquid solution that will completely kill the moss. Proper precautions are taken to prevent damage and control overspray.
Pets and children should be inside the home while the treatment process is underway to avoid any overspray. The treatment we use is similar to a chlorine treatment you would put into a swimming pool. In concentrated form it can be dangerous, but when handled properly in the right application it’s completely safe. Although the treatment is quite diluted and we want to avoid getting it on your skin or breathing the fumes in an enclosed space. The overspray can also stain clothing. Our technicians will wear a respirator, skin protection, and safety glasses for this reason. After the treatment is applied to the roof, all areas below the roof line are completely diluted with water ensuring that the solution is neutralized and safe. Pets and children are then free to go outside as the product is neutralized, diluted and is 100% biodegradable.
We offer a 5 Year limited warranty against the return of moss, lichen, and algae.
