Brian was a true professional and returned our call and got back to me promptly. He came to the building and gave me a great quote to clean the windows on two penthouses, his prices were very fair and work very professional. The windows were very difficult to clean and he proceeded with a desire to do the best work on our windows. His daughter cleaned the inside and was very careful to get the windows clean clear. Brian did the outside windows with purified water that leaves no spots. He also cleaned our solar panels on the roof which had not been cleaned in twenty years. This should ease our energy bill since this will make the panels much more energy efficient. We will be using B & B again soon to power wash our walkways and windows of other units. I highly recommend him, and will recommend him to my friends. I could not be happier with his work.

Vincent and his brother did a great job fixing our roof. They were able to fix it the day after they came by to give an estimate - no easy feat with roofers in high demand due to El Niño. They were prompt, very affordable and easy to work with. They went out of their way to provide all around professional service, even trimming some tree branches that were hitting the roof and cleaning out the gutters (for free) in order to ensure that the roof remained in tip top condition. Glad we found them.

Roger had the absolute best price to assemble my patio swing which I purchased from Costco. He was prompt, friendly, hardworking & cleaned up when finished. All around good work ethic. I plan to use him for future repairs around my house and will definitely recommend him to family & friends.

I was very impressed with the work performed by Steve. It's a more environmentally-friendly approach to power washing our tile roof, which hasn't been cleaned since it was installed 15 years ago. Steve also explained to us about the green algae buildup on the tiles and his safe treatment helps to remove that. I highly recommend this alternative way of tile roof cleaning.

I hired Mark to clean my garage door and my driveway and the side of my fence with a pressure washer machine. Driveway had some paint and fluid from the truck and garage door and fence had bird crap and random marks. He got everything off and it looks good as new.

Martin and his team were referred to us. We closed on Friday, we fumigated over the weekend, and they had our 1200sq ft house apart Monday morning. Here is what they did in only five weeks: Exterior: -Repaired the fascia -Replaced my window trim on all windows, and two of my windows entirely. -Painted the exterior -Poured a patio -Replaced a large side gate -Built and painted a picket fence -Installed a mailbox -Helped me assemble my patio furniture in their down time -Hauled away two truckloads of garbage from the yard and garage that the prior tenants left -Trimmed the trees to keep the off the roof -Patched the roof -took care of the loose wireing in the garage Interior: -Scraped all ceilings -Ripped out all flooring -Ripped out the tub and shower -Ripped out the vanities -Ripped out the toilets -Ripped out all base boards -Retextured the walls and ceiling -Build two doorways -Built a small wall to fix the hall -Reinstalled the bathrooms with new fixtures -Replaced all the ceiling fans -Replaced two doors to the exterior -stripped my sliding glass door of that terrible fogging-effect plastic - hung fresh bedroom closet doors -new carpet in two rooms -new laminate in the living room, office, hall -new vinyl in the kitchen and bathrooms -new baseboards -new kitchen cabnet with counter to match the others -re hung kitchen cabinets to match the other side (they were low) -full paint -smoke detectors -fire extinguishers -re-wired my unsafe attic -new switches and plates Basically, They made it turn-key, from a total dump. And they stayed within my budget. But what will always stay with me is the sense of deep care and respect I felt every step of the way. Our first experience. Never were we blown off of treated like novices. Every time I share pricing with friends who have had work done on their homes, their eyes bug out at how wonderful our pricing was! They always went above and beyond. Like, meeting other people (the surveyer, the city for utilities, the garage door guy, the Apliance delivery guy) so that I didn't have to take work off. Like lending a hand with our last few boxes when we were moving in. Like staying around until my husband made it home on they day he got lost so that I wouldn't be alone in a new neighborhood after dark. Like working weekends to get it done. Like touching base every day with updates. Like helping me spray my yard with flea killer. Like always having a good laugh ready to share. Like answering my stupid "what-the-heck-is-this" calls weeks later when something native to the neighborhood would turn up (mostly bugs). I am so grateful. Also, It's been months and nothing has gone wrong. Our life carries on (knock on wood), and we don't think about trivial house stuff because it's all done.

Tom is a gem! He immediately responded to my request for roof maintenance work & quoted a price that seemed too good to be true. The other quotes I had received were 25-50% higher. So I suggested that he come out and look at the roof just to be sure. He showed up right on time and was very personable & knowledgeable. He explained what needed to be done, what materials he would be using, and the price was exactly the same as he had originally quoted. So I asked him when he could do the job and he said he could do it right then & there. He had all the materials he needed on the truck & his crew was working on a large re-roof job, so he said he would do it himself. I received a professional invoice after he completed the work with before and after pictures. The quality of the work was top notch. What a great find. I highly recommend Tom Parks & TWP Roofing!

William did a good job of power washing our house. He was able to start work the day after I contacted him and worked steadily and efficiently for about 4 hours. A piece of tile roof came off and needed to be repaired and replaced which he did with no problem. I would totally recommend Billy T's service to anyone.

Job was well done. Price was much cheaper than other window cleaning services and with the exception of a couple of small smudges in a couple of places you just can’t beat the price for how much was done. Windows are really clean. There are a lot of maintance and other service offered through this company as well that I am considering using.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Can a roof be cleaned?

Yes roofs can be cleaned, and yes, it’s a real thing. Roof cleaning may actually be a wise investment to prolong the life of your roof. Overgrowth of moss, grime, lichen or algae can all shorten the life of your roof. If you have black streaks growing on your roof, they are likely caused by gloeocapsa magma algae spores that have landed on your roof and taken up residence. Once the algae has grown into streaks, the organism has usually been growing for several months and it’s high time to have it removed. If you live in a rainy part of the country, such as the Pacific Northwest, there’s a good chance you’ll find moss growing on your roof at some point. The northern part of your roof, as well as any parts that remain shaded all day, will provide a wet, cool haven for moss to flourish. Unfortunately this water-absorbing moss can damage your shingle roof, leading to rot if not removed. Beyond roof health and function, a clean roof can boost your curb appeal and potentially boost your home’s resale value. The national average for roof cleaning costs ranges between $270 and $350, although prices can be higher depending on how large your roof is, how steep your roof is, and what type of cleaning is necessary. Typically pros use either a pressure wash or chemical wash (made with a concentrated bleach solution) to remove algae, lichen, moss and dirt.

Why do I need to clean my roof?

Over time, algae, moss, lichen, dirt and even salt (if you’re near the ocean) can build up on your roof. These buildups can affect the look and function of your roof unless removed. The buildup of organic materials such as moss on a shingle roof can prevent water from sloughing off as it normally would. Trapped water can rot the roof or cause early deterioration of your shingles. Even if you don’t have a shingle roof, moss and lichen absorb water, and that wet material adds weight and stress to your roof — as well as providing a home for insects and other pests, and collecting dirt. For reflective, cool roofs that redirect heat away from the home, algae and moss growths can hamper their ability to deflect the sun, which can affect utility bills. Visually, moss, dirt and algae growths on a roof can have a negative effect on perceived home value and curb appeal. For example, black algae streaks on your roof may cause a potential homebuyer to assume that the roof might need repair or replacement, when it only needs to be cleaned.

How much does it cost to clean a roof?

The national average for roof cleaning costs ranges between $270 and $350. Factors that can affect the cost to clean your roof are the height of your house, the size and pitch (steepness) of your roof, and the complexity of your roof’s design and accessibility. Geographic location also plays a role in roof cleaning costs as regional labor rates and area costs to do business will vary. There are several ways to clean a roof. The most common is pressure washing. Industrial pressure washers can spray over 3,000 pounds per square inch (psi) of water — which is much too powerful for roof cleaning, and may tear off shingles and damage your roof. Confirm that the roof-cleaning pro you choose will only use a low-pressure sprayer to protect your roof investment. For large algae or moss growths, pros often recommend a combination of low-pressure washing with a bleach-based chemical solution. This is referred to soft washing and should handily remove any growths taking over your roof.

What chemicals are used to clean roofs?

Roof cleaning is done to remove moss, lichen, algae, and buildup of other grime and dirt. There are several methods for roof cleaning, which can include a chemical soft wash, pressure washing, low-pressure washing and hand washing. When a chemical soft wash is used, a bleach mixture is sprayed onto the roof. The bleach-based solution is absorbed by the algae or moss, which dies from exposure to the chemical. The roof is then sprayed with a low-pressure rinse of water, which loosens the now-dead material, allowing it to slide off the roof.

For homeowners, the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association recommends a mixture of 50 percent laundry-strength liquid chlorine bleach and 50 percent water. Professional roof cleaning companies will use an industrial mixture that is still safe but may be more effective in eliminating algae and moss growths. Asphalt shingle roofs are the most common type of roof, but each roofing material will have its own cleaning needs, so it’s best to consult with your roofing pro before diving in. Don’t do it yourself unless you can safely navigate your roof, the chemicals and a sprayer system. When in doubt, leave it to the pros.
