I live in a wet climate and the roof of my house has a moss problem. It is a very high, steep roof, covered with asbestos shingles which cannot be walked on without breaking.
Someone told me the way to get rid of the moss was to install "zincs" along the roof ridge. Is this a workable solution? How does it work?

The idea is to put 7 inch wide strips of zinc under the top row of shingles so that 3 inches are sticking out. The rains will wash wee amounts of zinc over the roof and kill the moss. This works well for fungus. Don't know if it will work on moss.
