has anyone tried X MOSS on the roof or drive? We have just had our roof done today[the moss is all cleared off and then a spray applied.]looks good now but hoping it will last.



Seems like a new product? Probably not long-lasting as it's enviro-friendly, but that doesn't mean it's not worth doing. I suggest now just a regular spray off as soon as you see any of the moss fighting back. I happen to like moss, but I realise it can be a nuisance. Be interesting to know the active ingredient in the stuff.

Mmmm! Never heard of it sorry but this is interesting, I want to remove moss from a flat roof, did you buy the X Moss if so where from & how much did it cost please. Hope it does last for you, only time will tell.

the roof was cleared and then sprayed with X MOSS by a reputable roofer and builder [from approved trade list.] It is claimed that it wont come back, but if it does he says it will be done again at no charge at all.He is local and with a reputation to keep up. Yes it is a new product so don't know if it can be bought directly, or comes only with a roofer to do the work.I like moss too, but loads of it on a roof causes problems . The work took ages for them to do, scraping all the moss off and then brushing before the spray was applied, the roof does look great, and it costs a flat £350 for any roof [and we have a large roof.] We will see what happens, because in a year or so would like to have our long brickwork drive treated the same way.I will let you all know how things go!

There was a tip on this subject somewhere that said if you put copper strip (eg slug tape?) along the edge of the ridge no moss will grow on the tiles.
