    I have a fair bit of moss on my roof that I would like rid of. The roof tiles are concrete (I think). Do you think its safe for me to get up on the roof to scrape the moss off? I noticed my neighbour across the road doing his but his tiles look different to mine.

    Why?
    Unless it falls off into the gutter it's better where it is

    It looks horrendous and surely isnt good for the roof

    Any work on a roof has risks. Unless you're getting leaks from moss buildup on flashing leave it be.
