Quote from Article entitled Roofing Wood Shingles Maintenance :
Maintaining your roofing wood shingles is very important because without caring to the shingles, you will find all leaf litter, pine needles and debris accumulated in the valleys. The accumulated debris on the roof will retard the shedding water and retain moisture allowing fungi to grow. So, what you need to do is to reduce the amount of water so that organism can’t grow on your roof shingles. You can start maintaining your shingles by removing overhanging branches and retard the drying of the roof surface. In the other wood, you shouldn’t allow any tree branches to touch or rub against the surface of you roof. If you can’t avoid branches to touch your roof surface, you can prun, trim or remove the problem causing trees in your house. If you are not make sure whether or not you have such problem, you can check your roof to find excessive growth of moss as an indicator of this problem. Removing debris from your roof can be simple done by washing your roof using a garden hose or use a stiff broom to remove all the leaf and pine needle. However, this job can be dangerous because you have to climb to your roof. If you don’t want to take any risk of this job, you can leave this task for the professional to get your roof cleaned professionally.
