Over the years a build up of dirt, moss and lichen will occur. How much so depends on the roof product, any coating it may have and the age of the roof. How bad it looks depends on the contrast between the dirt, moss and lichen and the color of the roof. Lightly coloured roofs will show the effects of dirt build up much more than say a black or charcoal coloured roof.
While moss and lichen build up is normal and a little can look appealing to some on say a slate tile roof, a major build up on a terracotta roof could lead to some issues down the line. As the moss and lichen can grow between tiles and over the bedding/pointing which can lead to cracking. This can create voids which in an extreme case can lead to water/rodents penetrating your roof and capping tiles coming away.
Moss and lichen building up on a Colorbond roof not cleaned for an extended period can cause premature ageing of the surface of the metal. This is because the moss and lichen eats into the bonded paint, damaging the coating and leaving a mark. Once the lichen has taken hold, stains from where it bonded to the roof will remain after roof cleaning Melbourne. This is why it is important to have your roof cleaned when you see mossy cauliflowers forming on the surface.
