  • There is a market for Treating rooftop moss

    I'm having more and more customers asking me what they can do for killing and controlling moss on rooftops. Ive done 4 jobs already this season with a product called Wet It And Forget It. 1 gallon is about $26.00 And will cover about 2,250 sq ft. This stuff works great but it does take a couple weeks if not months to see results. The moss will start to yellow and then turn to dust and slowly blow away. I've made some good money with minimal investment. A ladder, 1 gallon sprayer and the product.

    How much do you charge for a service like that? Do you charge for the job or per hour based?

      $75 / hr plus liquid product. A bit more than my normal hourly rate being that there's more of a hazard being on a roof.

          That is fantastic! How do you go about marketing that?

          Do you drive around looking for moss on roofs? Also do you market the problem with allowing moss to grow on roofs? By educating the potential customer on the damage it can cause, would that help sell more of your service?

            There are many companies across the country that do this daily. There is a market for it and it can be good money.

              I assume this would fall under the same regulations as applying weed control on a lawn.

              I've not been asked about moss, but a lot ask about gutter cleaning.
              No regulations to restrict me there, but me and ladders - we just don't get along.

                No you dont need any kind of licensing to apply this product. Its active ingredient is ADBAC Alkyl Dimethyl Benzyl Ammonium Chloride , ( ammonia ) and diluted with water. Its sold at any local hardware / supply store. The DOA found it only to harm fish.

                  does this work with lichen?

                  Its a bit tricky to remove. I used a couple products similar to that. It will work with time but not that effective. The best I seen was about 50% removed after a few rains storms.


                  I tell the customers what I know and that it wont all be removed. I still make around $350 for a small house. I charge by sq ft.
