Roofing Repair Product Review: Roto Metals Zinc Armor

roofing repair

Roofs may be constructed from different materials, including metal, wood, clay, shingle and concrete tiles. Whatever your roof type is, the formation of algae, moss and fungus on your roof is unavoidable.

Since moss and algae need water to multiply, places with more rainfall and humidity have higher infestation of these unwanted roof guests. Large trees that produce shade on the roof could advance the growth of moss and algae since water and dew on the covered areas tend to evaporate slower because of their lesser exposure to sunlight.

Different solutions are available for the homeowner affected by these unsightly growths on their roofs. One effective method of preventing moss and algae from growing on the roof is through the installation of a zinc or copper strip just under the ridge of the roof.

One such roofing repair product preferred by buyers is the Roto Metals Zinc Armor zinc roll. It is available in a three-inch wide roll that is 50 feet long. Its manufacturer claims that it prevents the formation of moss, algae, fungus, lichen and mildew on the roof by inhibiting their growth. The product is said to be effective for up to 20 years.
