Dave did a great job power washing the house. He also did the work for a more reasonable price than a few others quoted me. My wife was home when they did the work, and she said they were prompt, efficient, and very nice. There was one spot they didn't get out fully, but that is actually my fault, since its my hand print. Other than that, the house was near spotless and everything I hoped would be removed was. I would suggest getting a few quotes for power washing and then talk to these guys. You should end up happy.

I'm extremely happy with the work Tony from Taracenas provided. I originally had him hired to do the gutters but I added on and had him power wash my house and he's coming back to do the windows too. Very professional and well priced.

This was the quickest response time I have ever had from a service provider. I made a request, DeCarney Roofing replied in less than 5 minutes and was able to get me on their schedule same day within 20 minutes of my request. It's not often that you think, "Oh I have put this off for too long, I wonder how soon I could get someone in?"and get instant gratification. Very impressed with the work and professionalism. Will use DeCarney for all future gutter cleaning needs in the future.

Our experience with Clean Slate was great! We live in a multi level brownstone, so I knew the job of interior and exterior window washing would be a tough one, particularly with its old windows and tricky storms. Frank and his team were very professional, and spent an extraordinary amount of time making sure the job was done well. We will definitely hire Clean Slate again for future jobs.

Kevin was great to work with. He is apparently new to Thumbtack, but you wouldn't know it. He was responsive and provided a comparable quote to others I received. He was right in line with his competitors pricing, and had a better price than several of them. He used Google Maps (and/or Zillow) to get a look at my house. This allowed him to give me a more accurate estimate. It was nice to work with someone that knows what technology is out there, and can avoid an unnecessary visit to provide an in-person estimate. He was able to conduct the power washing and gutter cleaning in the same week I submitted to Thumbtack, and the job was great. House looks brand new. I wish I took pictures for the review. I always forget before/after pictures. For anyone who works with Kevin, you can be confident in what you are getting.

Roque is a true professional. He didn't just paint my house. His work ethic is so strong and his skill and standards are so high that I would recommend him to anyone. The house looks incredible but the customer service we received and the professionalism of Roque and his crew is absolutely top-notch. I can count on a response from him within a day, whether I call, text or email. I can count on him to be on time every day- when he tells me he will be there, he is there. The care he took to clean and prepare the house, then clean up the paint chips was incredible! Dependable, honest, kind, and an expert at his craft, I highly recommend Roque and WoW Painting. This kind of service and professionalism is rare today and we are beyond pleased with the results.

I hired Green Mountain Painting & Carpentry to identify and fix my leaking dishwasher, leaking washing machine and a toilet that kept running. Alex is a real professional. He helped identify the cause of the leaks and fixed the issue. He is ordering the part needed to fix the washing machine which will be fixed next week. His work was clean and his fee was fair.

Bart was exceptional to work with. He is an honest, good person, easy to communicate with and completely reliable. He arrived on time, worked steadfastly. He put together furniture I had bought from Wayfair in a very competent and organized manner. Everything was well done and he was very pleasant to work with. I have will have more furniture to assemble and look forward to working with him again.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Why is it important to clean your gutters?

Rain gutters, those easily-forgotten trenches that hang off the edge of your roof, protect your roof, walls and foundation from excess rainwater. When they get clogged with leaves, sticks and other wind-blown debris, they can no longer direct water away from your walls and foundation, and may become homes for pests and insects. They also become heavy enough to pull away from the house, preventing proper rainwater drainage and spoiling the appearance of your home. Experts recommend inspecting and cleaning your gutters twice a year, once in spring and once in fall, as part of your regular landscaping schedule. Gutter cleaning and maintenance is a fairly easy DIY job for some homeowners, especially on one-story homes. However, professional gutter cleaners have ladders tall enough to safely reach rain gutters, as well as the necessary tools to clean out the downspouts. Most gutter cleaning professionals can also make any necessary quick repairs.

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.
