    Moss and algae is sometimes unpreventable. Does your garage roof get any sunlight? If not this could be helping the growth. Make sure any trees and cut back away from the roof.

    You can try to clean it by yourself, but it's risky and dangerous. Unless you have experience getting up on the roof, then don't go up there to clean it. You could cause damage the roof and get injured.

    You may need to add into your home maintenance budget a yearly roof cleaning. Make sure to hire a reputable company to come out and clean it.

    If you try and remove the moss you will remove the stone chippings that are protecting the felt from UV light.

    If the felt is old as the previous chap said it will probably be blistered and will crack when walked on.

    The moss does help to absorb UV and help maintain the temperature of the felt roof.

    Moss is unpreventable.
    I think regular cleaning can fix that problem.

    I know how to sort them so the unread messages are first but I want to view only the unread so I can delete them all with out having to deselect the read ones. I have over 10k read ones and its time I don't really want to spend.

    Moss is controllable, and preventable.. My company specializes in roof cleaning, and moss is often the problem.. Check our site, view the tab under roof cleaning.. There are also some pictures of roofs with moss we have taken care of.

    The best moss cleaner: 100% bleach applied from a hand held garden sprayer. Results are obvious in 20 minutes.
