  1. Prepare Roof Surface: If your roof has existing moss, algae, mildew, or fungus growth, it must be removed first. This can be done through pressure washing or brushing. Additionally, the root systems should be chemically treated and destroyed (refer to magazine articles for bleach solution).

  2. Install Z-STOP Zinc Strips: Apply the Z-STOP zinc strip (50-foot roll) by placing it against both sides of all roof peaks, butted up against the ridge cap (refer to graphic). Ensure that Z-STOP is positioned below anything that obstructs rainwater flow, such as chimneys, gables, and skylights. Rainwater must flow over Z-STOP to be effective.
  3. Secure with Nails: Nail the Z-STOP zinc strip (50-foot roll) approximately every two feet using galvanized neoprene washer roofing nails.
  4. Additional Application: In areas with severe moss, algae, mildew, or fungus growth, consider applying an additional horizontal row of Z-STOP to ensure comprehensive coverage over the entire roof surface.
