Our yard was a disaster. Tall grass, one fence completely lost in weeds, flower beds covered in weeds and ivy and random plants in the middle of the yard. Exterior Driven came in and in 3 1/2 hrs had it party ready. They even saved some rosebushes I didn't know I had. Will definitely call again! no improvements needed.

We had considerable damage to our house during a recent hail storm. Jim worked with our insurance company to get a new roof, new guttering, downspouts and window screens. The inspector from the mortgage company even commented on how nice our roof looked. Wonderful quality of work and I would recommend JD Contracting.

I live and Ballwin and we had the worst hail storm in history thus leaving my roof, gutters, siding, & deck with hail damage. I called Holthaus Roofing to come assess the damage and met with Ed Holthaus. In the first 5 minutes of interaction you could tell Ed was very detailed oriented and passionate about his business and doing things the right way. Ed met with my insurance adjuster and really turned into a Project Manager which made the process a breeze for me. Fast forward – installation is completed. There appears to be an issue with a piece of siding that touches part of the roof. I called Ed and explained the situation and he came out immediately. After reviewing the issue I asked Ed if I was being too picky or unrealistic and he not only agreed with me but said “Hey it’s your house. You live here year round, I don’t. If you don’t like it we’ll get it fixed.” Wow! It’s not often you get that kind of commitment and feeling of partnership. In this industry, there is only one company I will refer and do business with and that’s Holthaus Roofing.

Nick and his team were on time, professional, and did an amazing job. They cleaned the dark streaks on my roof, powerwashed my siding, porch and sidewalk. It took years off my home. I would definitely recommend them. They went above and beyond. Thank you, Clean Pro!

Brian installed laminate in my bathroom shower and quarter round in two bedrooms, and caulked several plaster cracks. My AC went out while he was working on the bathroom job, and he was able to fix my AC, because he is HVAC- certified. He even pitched in and helped my moving helpers with a few things. Prices were very reasonable, and Brian is pleasant, honest and trustworthy. He will text you before he arrives and let you know his schedule. I have already recommended their services to several friends. Thanks Handy Wise Men for making my move less stressful!

Summary The roofing work was great. Chris was professional, friendly and did a thorough job. Debbie from the office was great about communicating when he would come and what would be done. I have to say, however, that I was disappointed by the quoting process. It feels like they didn't take the time they needed to assess the job properly and changed the terms on me once Chris arrived to start the work. Details I had four suppliers come inspect my roof and provide me with a quote. Pro-Craft's quote was competitive with another supplier, and both seemed equally professional, but I chose Pro-Craft because they gave me a written estimate on the spot that specified everything I wanted to know (exact work they would do, amount it would cost, warranty offered), while the other supplier took a few more days to assemble the information. The Pro-Craft quote included removal of the existing roof, application of a new base+top layer, and the replacement of my gutter. The other supplier said it would be sufficient to simply put roofing on top of the existing material and also that my gutter was custom and would require a sheet metal specialist to fix it. Since Pro-Craft seemed to be a one-stop shop willing to do a more thorough job, I picked them. Once Chris arrived to do the work, he contacted his office and they told me that he would put the modified bitumen on top of the existing layer (they would reduce the price accordingly). Once Chris looked at the gutter, he told me he couldn't do the work himself, but that we needed a sheet metal specialist (they kindly referred me to the same specialist the other company had suggested). So, in the end, Pro-Craft did exactly what the other company said they would do. While I am perfectly happy with Pro-Craft's work, I almost wish I had gone with the other company to reward their more throrough quote process.

    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.
