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.

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.

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.

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.

What happens during a roofing inspection?

Roof inspectors are trained to look for signs of a failing roofing system that could lead to damage — especially water and structural damage. Your home's roofing materials may look great from the ground, but it's difficult to see potential damage unless you take a closer look. A roof inspector can do just that.

During an inspection, the professional will typically look for issues that may have occurred during installation and manufacturing. They’ll also keep an eye out for damage caused by normal wear and tear, as well as extreme weather events. They might also access your attic to see if there are signs of a leak in your roof.

Here’s a short list of common things a contractor will look out for during a roof inspection: 

  • Damage caused by hail, wind, snow and rain
  • Missing, broken, buckling, curling or cracked shingles 
  • Roof decay, rot, moss, mildew and mold
  • Rust around the flashing
  • Damaged chimneys and vents
  • Holes, gaps and punctures that could cause a roof leak
  • Water stains and ventilation issues

Hiring a roofing inspector prevents you from having to do the dangerous work of climbing onto your roof. Plus, inspectors know how to assess potential damage and determine the best way to repair your roof and prevent the need for more expensive repairs in the future. Start searching for a roof inspector on Thumbtack today.

When should I get my roof inspected?

Experts typically recommend that you have your roof professionally inspected at least once a year. But you also may want a licensed professional to inspect your roof during these circumstances: 

  • You're buying or selling a home
  • You're filing an insurance claim
  • Before or after a contractor does major work on your roof

Search the Thumbtack site for experienced roof inspectors near you. You can contact them directly to set up a time to conduct the inspection, and learn more about their pricing structure and services.

The roof is nice and clean again, looks like new. Thanks!

My roof was in need of cleaning, got a “Courtesy Notice” from the Association and I began searching for a company to clean the roof. I searched a viewed a few company’s website and then I came across “Clean Pressure Washing” I read their reviews and look at pictures of their work and I made contact. The process was hassle free, straight forward estimate, set up appointment and received updated information on his arrival time. I must say that ___ showed up on time, was very professional and polite. He explained the process of cleaning the roof and went to work. I am very impressed with the low pressure cleaning of my roof and would always call on “Clean Pressure Washing” when my roof needs to be cleaned again. The gentleman even cleaned my gutter, driveway and sidewalk at no extra charge.

Due to an old roof, and brittle tiles, I needed a softwash, and Coco at Nano Pressure cleaning understood what my roof needed. I was extremely happy with the outcome. The day I called him he came by and immediately started working, he ran out of product because it was late in the day but he returned a day later and finished the job. I am keeping his number handy for future pressure cleaning jobs.

Chris and his team did an amazing job pressure cleaning our roof and pavers. They also deep cleaned our outdoor Chicago brick oven which was very black. It all looks brand new now with a great sealant as well. On top of this great work they were courteous and coordinated with our house painter so both could keep working. I highly recommend CB Solutions!

Yanis' Clean Pressure Washing was exactly what I was seeking. He responded quickly offered a fair price. Was flexible on finding a schedule that worked for us. I asked for a roof cleaning and he did more at his own initiative including my Driveway and back porch. I felt like a valued customer and I have been telling friends about my great experience with Thumbtack and Yanis. Want it done and done well be sure to call Yanis. Also, tell him thank you from me!

I was hesitant about working with someone I didn't know or that was not recommended by someone that I know, wow, I'm so glad I did... Yanis arrived on time, is very professional, did an outstanding job, and the price was unbeatable. My roof, driveway, & sidewalk were left pristine!!! I have never (not even when I first bought the house) seen the property look so clean. Needless to say, I highly recommend Yanis.

I had Kendrick come out to power wash my tile roof, canvas awnings, sidewalk and Chicago brick patio. He answered my inquiry quickly. I should point out that I contacted several other professionals from thumbtack and have still not heard back! He arrived on time and provided a very fair estimate. He worked methodically, treating my house as if it were his own. When he left it was clean; there was no evidence on nearby structures that the power washing has been performed. I recommend him highly and will certainly use him again.

I'm very Happy with Ken and Roberta. Roberta text me and said that Ken will be at my house within the hour and he was. After we talked to me, i knew at that moment that he is honest. During the cleaning process, i watched him and looked at what he has done to my roof. What a great job he did. After that, he pressurized my whole house, that came out great too. I will definitely use him again. What a great guy. I also will be hiring him to paint house. Looking forward to get it done by a great and honest guy and company. Thanks for doing a great job.
