He came out on short notice to clean my roof and gutters. His work was excellent, and his price was right. I really appreciated the way he communicated his time of arrival. He even kept me posted when heavy traffic slowed him down. I will definitely call him again for future work.

Good prompt service. Called on Monday and they were able to send someone the next day. Guy was very polite, and after we agreed upon a negotiated price he finished the pressure washing and vinyl cleaning in one hour. He also helped me move a heavy umbrella with the stand which was hard for me to move by myself. Recommend to anyone.

Cubecleaning did an amazing job. He was on time very professional and went above what I expected. He even sent me photos of my gutters after they were cleaned out. We have a lot of pine trees around our home and I most diffently will be hiring again and again. I have told all my friends about how great a job he did also. If you need your gutters or roof cleaned you will never regret hiring cubecleaning.

Santiago was very knowledgeable, polite, professional and willing to provide me with ideas and consult to better improve my project. He built me a porch with a tin roof. The porch is beautiful and very sturdy. We have enjoyed it immensely. I plan on using his services from now on to complete all my home maintenance needs. I would highly recommend Santiago to all that need a professional.

Season to Season Landscaping was prompt and professional. Dallas and his team completed the work quickly and cleaned up after the job was complete. As this was my first time using any landscaping company, I cannot compare prices, but his quote seemed reasonable.

I am very pleased with the work that I received from Odyssey Contracting. Sean was very professional and answered all our questions. This company went above and beyond in repairing our roof and bathroom repairs. The installers were punctual and did not leave any debris in our yard. I would recommend this company to others.

Sam from Chief roofing was experienced and did a good job of putting up the new Roof trim. He also checked and nailed few other areas. He drove all the way from Hillsborough to Apex to get the job done. Overall an excellent job.

Lucid was great! They responded promptly to my emails and even my text messages too. When they finished, my house looked amazing and it was pretty cool getting to watch their drone clean my roof! If you are thinking about hiring them to clean your home I would absolutely recommend them.

Excellent work and great price! I think we all are sometimes guilty of thinking a deal is too good to be true. But this time it was exactly as advertised. We were so impressed we voluntarily paid MORE than the bid price and still saved over other bidders. Heartily recommend Creative Exterior.

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.
