Lichens a problem?

Updated: Feb 6, 2020




Did you know lichens naturally found on rocks slowly decompose their substrate by chemically degrading and physically disrupting the minerals, contributing to the process of weathering. This can cause problems when these lichens establish themselves on your roof.

There are several DIY products available on the market to clean your roof, or you can call in a professional to do this for you. Treating and cleaning a roof with lichen is quicker and easier (read cheaper) when done early on.


Remember regular cleaning will ensure a long-lasting roof avoiding nasty roof and building repair bills. This will give you peace of mind and keep your home looking its best!
