I have spots of mold on different sections of my roof. Some were in spots
that were not touched by the sun I can understand thoes , But now they are
appearing all over the roof . Is this a problem? And how do i get rid of
Like any mold, once it gets a hold in an area it is difficult to get rid of,
and spreads easily, even to areas that may be sub drenched. It usually grows
on damp rotting vegetation. (pine needles, leaves, etc) But it also helps
when the roofing is older and breaking down itself.]
Sounds like it might be time for a new roof.
It isn't. Roof mold is a very common problem, especially in southern
climes. It can be killed with a mild mixture of bleach and water and can
be prevented with copper or zinc strips attached to the roof. This topic
has been covered here before. You may want to do a search on it. Your
roof may need replacement, but it is not because of mold.
