My garage roof is continuosly growing mold where it is shadowed by a large tree. More than half the roof.
Is there anyway to stop it other than cutting down the tree?
There are sprays containing zinc and copper that prevent this.You could also install a zinbc strip along the ridge. The rain washing down past it creates an environment unfavorable to growth of fungii.
I would like to hear from the roofers on this. My wife wanted to buy a house that was surrounded by trees. Above and around. I saw mold on that house also. I said no way. I always thought the sunlight helped dry the shingles out. If you're shingles never dry and mold is growing on them isn't this decreasing your shingle and roof life?
