We have a lot of moss on our roof. Does anyone have some good ideas for killing it and keeping it from growing back?

Call a roofer unless you're *really* a DIY kind of person.
Get a Galvanized flashing installed that hangs out under the ridge.
Somehow, the Galvanized stuff eliminates the moss/mildew by magic. (Look around your pipe vents,,,, no mildew under them, huh?)

Go for it.

This product is amazing! You spray it anywhere you want to remove algae and moss, or to stop it from to growing. Just put it into a garden sprayer, and spray it on once a year, then every time it rains, it binds with the rain and starts working. It's amazing stuff with no scrubbing required! It's called "Spray and Forget".


You can buy it at Home Depot. I use it on my mobile home, my garage siding and on our camper. I used to have quite the moss and algae problem, but no more! It also removes mildew, fungus, and lichen stains from roofs, siding, decks, brick, stucco, and other exterior surfaces with no scrubbing required!
