Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How often should you clean your roof?

Some roof cleaning companies recommend that you clean your roof every couple of years, but you might need to do maintenance every year depending on the type of roof you have, the climate and the weather. Roofs in harsher climates tend to require more frequent cleaning.

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.

Is it worth it to hire a roofer?

There are several reasons why it’s worth it to hire a professional roofer instead of attempting it yourself. The first is safety. Roofing is inherently dangerous, as a fall from a roof could seriously injure or kill you. Roofers have specialized equipment and training to help prevent accidents.  

Next is experience. Roofers know how to spot problems (leaks, missing shingles, moss or mold growth, etc.)  in your roof that could potentially save you from costly repairs down the road. 

And finally, roofers save you time by getting the job done quickly and with a high degree of quality.

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.

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.

Rick was very quick to respond to all of my messages. The job they performed went above what I expected. He quoted me to only clean my roof however he also cleaned the sidewalk leading to my front door as well as my front porch. I was hesitant about pressure cleaning my roof but he used a soft wash process instead. I will definitely use his services again in the future.

This company is very professional. I spoke to Mr. Schlipman several times, and he arranged the job for the day and time that was convenient for us. The workers arrived on time and got to work right away. We used them because they don't use pressure cleaning, which destroys roofs. They use a mild chemical that cleans completely and doesn't damage our roofs, and they did it in under two hours without disrupting our day. Plus, their price was very reasonable. We are very happy with their service.

Zero pressure showed up and quickly secured the perimeter for quick and easy clean up. From start to finish the roof was restored to new construction appearance in 1 hour and fifteen minutes. This company provided their own water supply and debris clean up and removal. I was expecting a 3-4 hour process and a steep water bill following a traditional pressure cleaning job. They were need, quick and efficient. As I read in previous customers reviews, they provided before and after pictures of my roof as well and they top it off with a 2 year warranty! Yes I highly recommend Zero Pressure over traditional pressure cleaning.

The owner got back to me immediately, gave me a good price, and showed up on time as agreed. My roof needed cleaning or pressure washing. The pressure washing I had done before worked but made a big mess and the pressure caused some loosing of cement shingles. I bought the soft-wash for my roof and it made a big difference. It looks almost new!!!! I highly recommend A-1 and the soft-wash.

I received multiple quotes from various contractors but decided to go with Overspray Solutions based on their before and after photos, customer reviews and the details of their profile here on Thumbtack. They also seem to have a good warranty on the workmanship of their service. I was provided a quote within an hour and scheduled the cleaning for a few days later. These guys came out and cleaned the tiles of my roof and left the surrounding areas of dirt/debris clean. These guys are COMPETENT and PROFESSIONAL. They even used harnesses for MAXIMUM SAFETY around my property while it rained (rainy weather here in Miami!). All I can say is... AWESOME WORK. My neighbors all need roof cleanings as well so I asked the crew if they can provide business cards and/or flyers to them, which they personally did. Highly recommended. Will definitely use this service again in the future.

Definitely recommend. I am very happy with the job that this company did. My roof was disgusting and black. Screwed up and didn’t take before picture. I’m happy with how professional they were. They were punctual. They cleaned up after themselves. they give you warranty. I had received a couple quotes from other people on but honestly I felt more comfortable going with them based on their reviews and also how quick and professional they were with me. they did a really good job.

Earl came out and assessed the property thoroughly and honored his quote on Thumbtack. He was able to pressure clean my roof, driveway, sidewalk leading up to the door and back pavers in the time he stated. Earl and Deion were professional, showed up on time, and completed the job to my expectations. About the only complaint is that my neighbors kept on stopping them to ask for business cards since they also saw the quality of their work. Great job, Earl and Deion! I will hire you again in the future. You should too.
