Extremely professional. Easy to work with. Immediate responses. Very reasonable for the work completed. This team made the windows in my home cleaner than any other professional I have used in ten years of contracting professional window washers. They were so professional, taking great care of the interior of my home as they were working. I am thrilled to have found them and would highly recommend them.

Paul helped me diagnose a washing machine failure and then guided me through the process of buying/installing a new washer and dryer. During his visit several other "issues" got discussed and he attended to those as well!

Justin installed a new roof on my house. He and his crew stripped two existing layers of shingles, installed a new asphalt shingle roof, installed a new ridge vent and soffit vents. The roof looks great and no more leaks! Justin was very professional and knowledgeable. He answered any questions I had. I would recommend Justin to anybody looking for roofing or exterior renovations!

Mr. Thompson provided an accurate and reasonable quote for the requested work, which was to replace a bulkhead door and install some landscaping railroad ties. The work was done in a matter of days and the site was left clean and free of debris. I am very satisfied with Mr. Thompson's work and have recommended him to friends and family.

Steve did a fantastic job doing non-pressure cleaning on our roof in Agawam. He moved quickly from the start doing the quote all the way to the end of the project and sending the email receipt and pictures once he finished. The job was completed quickly and there wasn't a trace he was even there. He and his assistant were very personable AND knowledgeable! We will use him in the future and will refer him to ANY of our friends or family.

I had ~5 feet of snow cleared from my roof, and the underlying ice dams addressed, this past mega-winter, and had my deck power-washed this spring. Both jobs were done well and on time. Will use these guys again.

Brian is great and the roof looks brand new! Once he was finished the roof, I hired him to replaced rotten trim boards around the house. His prices are VERY fair and his work is very good. My neighbors all want to hire him now which is a great indication of his work.

I think our work stands out from others because we have two installers that have been roofing for 27yrs togather so we know how to do things right the first time.Also we hand nail because we used roofing guns in the past and the caused us problems, blown off shingles.shingles sliding out of place after a hot summer.So we hand nail a hammer always leaves a nail flat on the roofing shingles.Roofing guns can set to deep in warm weather and crack around the nail head from the air presure in the colder months.And all you need is some good wind in either case and they'll(shingles) will be blowning off.

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.
