A Bit of Copper Can Help Protect Your Roof

Posted on October 27, 2010 in Home Improvement, Home Remodeling

You read it right, installing a thin copper-strip can go a long way in saving your roof from a recurring moss-problem.  Install a thin copper flashing on the highest shingles of your roof.  When rain hits the copper flashing, the oxidized copper will flow down the roof and kill the moss. Watch this video on how it is installed.

New roofs do not require additional copper flashings, but if you have an old roof, installing these copper flashings will save you hundreds of dollars on roof cleaning.

You should always seek help from experts before installing these flashings. There are many ways your job could go wrong, and installing these flashings the wrong way could damage your shingles.
