Fiber Cement Slate Roof Maintenance
Fibre cement slates, like every other roofing material, are susceptible to contaminants. Dust and emissions from the atmosphere settle on the roof over time. Moss is also challenging to avoid, and it is not dependent on the roof installation type; moss can grow on any surface.
Although fiber cement slates are coated with a moss-inhibiting substance, environmental factors play a significant role in whether the roof changes color to green. In the real sense, it is not the fiber cement slates that change to green; it is the sand and debris on the slates that provide ideal growing conditions for algae and moss. The intensity of moss growth on fiber cement slate roofs is dependent on the Orientation of the roof, acidic rain, ventilation, and presence of trees in the environment.
Hence, the need for Universal roofs’ expertise to maintain your fiber slate roof to its optimum condition.
