What is Vegetation on the Roof?

  • Weeds and Plants (that weren’t intentionally planted)
  • Moss and Lichen
  • Shrubs and Trees
  • Mould, Algae, Mildew

What Causes Roof Vegetation?

  • Lack of roof maintenance
  • Poor drainage
  • Seeds spread by wind, birds and critters
  • Accumulated organic debris

Vegetation Damages Structure and Contents

  • Leaks
    • Aggressive Roots puncture the membrane
    • The Roots continue to grow between the membrane and roof deck until they pierce through insulation
    • This damage leads to slow leaks, perfect for mould growth and rotting
  • Fire
    • A simple spark can ignite a fire to dry grass, moss and other plants
