Gabe had quite a drive - over an hour- to even get to our house! He arrived right in time and assessed what he was going to do with our gutters over-spilling and not draining properly. The problem had to do with damaged leaf traps which were causing huge blockages in several different locations around the roof edges. He called us out to view the waterfalls that were occurring after cleaning out the gutters. It was amazing to see how long the water just kept gushing out, and this was a sunny, dry day! We are good to go, he kept his price very affordable so we can look forward to having him back in spring to have him remove the moss from our roof tiles, and wash all of our windows. Gabe is dependable, knowledgable, kind, and confident. He has excellent work ethics and is very proud to help people as he enjoys meeting folks who need his services. You will love Gabe - my husband and I surely do! Good luck Gabe, that stack of cards won't last long- you will get many referrals from us!! Bob & Jill Salmons El Dorado Hills

Mike & Pat's tile work turned out great! They did a subway tile half-wall surround and floor-to-ceiling subway tile (and the ceiling) in the steam shower as well as Hydro Ban waterproofing. They also installed a granite curb and penny tile for the bathroom and laundry room floors. Looks top-notch. Thanks guys!

Frank did an excellent job of doing a wet patch on my chimney to fix a leaky roof into my cast iron stove in the family room. He was on time and went and bought all the needed material n fixed the roof n painted the rusting chimney within less than 2 hours. I will hire him again!

So pleased with his work! Not only did he clean the gutters (which were badly clogged), but while he was on the roof he trimmed the tree that was blocking my solar panel. Fast response! Super service! Reasonable price! Highly recommend. Will definitely be using him again.

I felt Daniel was aware of my concerns, did his research on how to eliminate the moss on the roof, and then did a thorough job plus cleaned up afterwards. I would recommend him to my friends.

I called these folks to clean some gutters on a home and they went above any beyond. They climbed a very steep roof and removed all the leaves from the valleys of the roof without even being asked to. They also came out the morning after I called them.

Anthony came in and fixed a leak in my tile roof after three other companies had refused to work on it because it is lightweight concrete tiles on metal lath. He showed up promptly and was hard working; I wish I had his energy.

Lee came to our house at the time he promised. He brought two men and they loaded our furniture on his flat bed trailer quickly and safely. The entire experience didn't take long at all. The cost of removing this furniture was very reasonable and I recommend Lee's services to any and all. Dick Reynolds

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.
