But the roof just ten feet away is clear of any moss or algae! Why are these shingles clean and the others are not? Not because they have been cleaned by Tim. Mother Nature did it. For free!
Above the clean section of the roof, there is a copper cupola. It is this little bitty roof that is keeping the moss off the roof. Every time it rains, a little of the copper washes off the cupola and onto the shingles.
