My experience with RU Ready Painting & Cleaning was awesome! Carlos and his team did an amazing job cleaning my roof. He was professional, his work was excellent, he showed up on time and his pricing is phenomenal!!! When he got to my home we asked him if he could also include cleaning the gutters and shed and for a just few bucks more he took care of everything. If you need your roof cleaned and don't want to break the bank, then call Carlos...he won't disappoint you. I will definitely recommend him to all of my friends.

Herson Lopez and his team executed three projects simultaneously for us: re-roofing our house, a complete exterior paint job, and the re-building of our front porch. Their work was excellent, and the end results look terrific. More importantly, though, was the fact that all the work was completed on-time and on-budget. In addition, Herson was personally involved in project oversight, and he took the time to communicate with us on a regular basis as work progressed. I highly recommend Herson, and I will gladly rely on him for future work!

I needed windows cleaned on the top floor of my building, and Clear View Window Cleaning was the only company (apparently!) able to do this job. The windows now look great, inside and out, and the cleaners were very professional and thorough. Excellent work.

Had Greg from GW's Home Improvement do a roof on a 2300 sq ft raised ranch. Him and his crew worked incredibly hard and got the job done in a very reasonable amount of time. I'm very picky with things and I have to say that all the shingle lines going across the roof are perfectly straight. Greg showed me all the areas that looked like there may have been a water problem and then was able to explain exactly what he was going to do to fix it. Overall, I was extremely happy with the work he provided. He got done it done in the amount of time he said it would take and on budget. His prices were very good compared to some I had gotten.

Bessy is a nice , responsible guy. Bessy bros did a a good repair of chimney cap, gutter cleaning and window shadow. They arrived timely and communicated their arrivals clearly. They took care of other petty jobs around the house (outside) without any fuss. And importantly not pricy too.

Overall, I couldn't have chosen a better group for my driveway snow removal. They were rapidly responsive as soon as I reached out for help, and it was reasonably priced. They cleaned the driveway of all the heavy snow within an hour, maybe less. I would highly recommend Green Drop. Thanks.

Rolando from Roland Construction went over and above my expectations. He and his team were very professional and did everything that he gave an estimate for and even fixed other little problems in the basement. His team were all very hard working and organized. At the end of every work day, they would leave the site clean of all debris, neatly packed in bags, ready for the dumpster. I would definitely recommend Roland Construction for any project in a home.

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.
