asbestos roof renovation - forword
A fungus-covered roof is unsightly, can make your home look prematurely old and has a major impact on the overall appearance of your home. This could reduce the value of your property.
Heavy organic growth especially on the south side of a roof is often the cause of roof leaks. The joints between and at the bottom edge of tiles or slates are designed to allow water to flow down freely. During periods of heavy and prolonged rain, water can enter the roof if the joints and overlaps are choked with moss.
Moisture retention and substrate weakening
Roof tiles become porous when fungus is allowed to grow. This not only makes the tile more water absorbent but may shorten the lifespan of some types of roofs.
Research suggests that the presence of fungus in close proximity to human living environment can pose some health concerns, especially to those who suffer from allergy problems.
