Into the Woods

Though some might consider mossy roofs part of a cabin-in-the-woods aesthetics, we here at Affordable Pressure Was Solutions know that isn’t the case when your cabin in the woods is the dream home you actually live in! Roofs with a lot of tree canopy cover can grow moss like crazy! Without much UV exposure, which acts as a kind of natural sterilization process, moss will take to your shingles like flies to honey. Take this beautiful home we’ve just run an estimate on as an example. It sits at the end of a long drive away, nestled in a beatific clearing surrounded by ample tree cover.

Is your woodland home showing signs of the insidious pact between trees and moss? Go ahead and give us a call! The Affordable Pressure Wash Solutions office can be reached any time during normal business hours at

Notice how the moss tends to group up on the lower regions of a slanted roof. These regions get less sun exposure because they slip into tree shadows earlier in the day and for longer than higher parts of the roof.

Notice here how the rear roof, which faces the open clearing, has little to no serious moss build up.
