moss on shakes

Recommended Posts

Going to pressure wash then stain my cedar shakes on the house. There is a little bit of "moss" growing on them and was wondering if there is anything that is made that will help inhibit future growth.

Thanks!

A treatment with a moss killer. Directions will say if that goes on before or after your power wash. Some siding and deck washes might have that killer in them already.

Then an additive to the stain.

if you use a good penetrating sealer you shoulnt have a proplem, if you are staining your shakes look into sikkens cetol- trust me you wont regret, then every couple year run over it with a pressure washer. I dont know if its sold around here but at my house in fl, I mixed algecide/ with my wood sealer- it prevents stuff from growing on wood. just guessing but your probably having this problem under trees, or the shady side of your house? sometimes if the woods always wet it seems to attract growth more than other area of the structure. good luck

I have read that stips of galvanized material or something with magnesium in it stops the mold growth. There are strips that you put under the top edge and that will prevent it from happening. You should be able to find it at United Products or maybe a big box.

The "strips" you guys are talking about are actually zinc, you can find them at any roofing supplier

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
