We own a real estate company and are so satisfied that we left Eds guys a tremendous tip because of their effort in making sure that the property was in the best presentable position for us to list it on the market. There were several phases to this project which concluded the the trash removal and cleansing/\cleaning of the building. First we had EBRR handle some mold that needed to be removed and treatment of the air for the previous tenant. Then it was the outside area that needed to be cleaned of all the debris. We couldn't believe the short time span which all this work was completed and the price was not able to beaten by any other contractors in the area. Mr.Ed goes and does anything to make sure the client is satisfied being us! Always answers the phone and couldn't ask for more pleasurable experience.

I have nothing to say but good things about Baker Bros. I had a roof leak and most companies (numerous ones that I called), due to the upcoming storms couldn’t even fit me in right away for an estimate or a tarp. When I reached to to Baker Bros. (Shaun), he responded right away and was really quick to answer any questions that I had. Shaun came out the next day and looked at my roof and knew exactly what the problem was. The price he quoted me could not be beat!!! The next day Shaun was on my roof repairing my leak. I was at work and when I came home, the roof was repaired and he although he didn’t have to, he also took care of several other issues. He saved me a lot of money and he really cared that I was on a budget. I came home and there was no mess or any materials left. In fact you would never have know he was there. Thank you Shaun!!! I am VERY satisfied with the work that your company performed.

Called me last night at 7:30 pm to confirm chimney cleaning today. Called at 8am today to say they didn't have a truck going to the Virginia area today. No reason why until I pressed for more info and was told they have trucks in all the DC metro areas today but not VA. Huh? I took the afternoon off from work to accommodate the cleaning based on the confirmation last night. Will find another company that honors their appointments.

We are so happy to have found Marvin and his crew at Baiza Construction! It's been a year since Marvin completed the project of turning our fixer-upper into a beautiful home and we couldn't be happier. The renovations were extensive: they knocked down a wall and installed a modern kitchen, moved the location of a bathroom and gave us an amazing walk-in shower, sanded and stained hard-wood floors, painted, gave the house a new roof and all new windows, while insulating everything well so we will save money on heating and A/C in the future! They did a lot more, but too much to list. We keep going back to Marvin to do additional projects as needed. Marvin has been very good to us, he does great work at very fair prices. He's also a really nice guy who really wants to make sure we are happy with the results. The only problem? He's so sought after, it may be hard for him to find the time to respond. I think a lot of bad reviews are due to him just being so busy. My suggestion to him is to hire an administrative assistant to help with all the project scheduling, invoices, and other boring office stuff that I think he doesn't like to do. Also, maybe find a way to clone himself ;)

JAF Cleaning Service was fantastic. Our area experienced heavy constant rainfall for about 2 weeks straight and like many others, the ultra-amount of rain was causing basement water troubles which were being compounded by the fact that our gutters were clogged. Our gutters were spilling large amounts of water right against our foundation - Many other places wanted to come out for a quote and then schedule the service weeks out. There were more storms coming our way and we simply couldn't make it through another storm without this being resolved. JAF Cleaning Services responded and scheduled a time within a day or two of initial contact and quoted a very competitive price. Our gutters are now clear and our basement is drying up. Will absolutely call him again in the future for gutters and other services. Highly recommend!

Rodriguez Landscaping did an excellent job of trimming my 40+ foot tree between me and my neighbor's yard. There was bit of a language barrier but honestly recommend HIGHLY RECOMMEND him for tree trimming. He came early, did a WAY better job of trimming this huge tree than expected, his price is both fair and reasonable, and he cleaned up all the branches afterwards. He did such a great job, one of my neighbor's hired him to trim one of their trees after he finished mines. I would add pictures but I can't get them to attach.

Superior contractors were on time, they did a roof repair instead of a new roof as others tried to sell me. Superior informed me that no new roof was needed. AN HONEST contractor with quality workmanship!! Thank you Superior! I highy recommend them. I would definitely use their services again.

We hired Tameka Lawn Care Service to help keep our parents yard up during the winter months and we were not disappointed. They did an amazing job! They even showed up before snow storms and other bad weather to pretreat the side walks. They eased our mines knowing that the lawn work that our parents could no longer do but desperately needed, could be professionally completed at a reasonable price. Thank you so much, Mr. Lane for always being a professional and taking care of our family! Sincerely, Mr. and Mrs. James Ellis

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.
