When I left a message for Adam at Triangle Exterior Solutions asking about cleaning my gutters he got back to me within a matter of hours, gave me an extremely reasonable quote and was able to get the job done within a couple of days. I noticed he even swept all the leaves off my front steps and porch which was so kind! I had shoulder surgery recently so I've been unable to do any yard clean up, raking, etc... Adam doing that small extra task totally made my day! I highly recommend Adam at Triangle Exterior Solutions!

James and his crew from Raptor Valley Landscape for a big cleanup and maintenance job at my house recently. The job took several hours and I was extremely pleased with the results! James made sure that I was kept informed of what they were doing and asked for my input when necessary. At the end of the day, James made sure that I was satisfied and offered to come back out if I found anything that I wasn't happy with. I would highly recommend James and his crew and plan to continue to use them for my landscaping needs!

Raul and his brother handled all of my needs and were awesome to work with. I will definitely hire them again for any of my interior caulking or painting needs. I only needed a shower sealed but upon inspecting some other areas of my house I discovered I had numerous areas that have experienced settlement throughout the years. Raul handled re-caulking all of my crown molding, my built in shelves, repairing two drywall cracks and then painted. Thumbs up!

This expert team of Karla and her husband did a very meticulous job of cleaning our entire house’s windows inside out. They spent more than 5 hours doing the cleaning. We had not gotten our windows cleaned since past 7 years. We were very happy with their professionalism . They are both very polite and respectful. They brought all their supplies with them and did not bother us with anything at all. Highly recommend to anyone!

I am thrilled with the work done by Premium Painting of NC. Within two days of completion, I received complements and requests for additional information about Premium Painting from several neighbors. Also, they do much, much more than paint. They painted the exposed wood on my vinyl sided house, repaired a rain rotted windowsill and power washed my house, driveway, and patio. They arrived on-time as promised prepared with commercial grade equipment and supplies. They power washed my siding, exposed wood, windows, and three porches. The next day they returned again on-time and, using name brand tape and plastic, covered my window glass, scraped, sanded, primed, and painted with a high quality, oil based paint, which they provided. They were friendly but professional, quiet, and clean. They moved and then moved back the many pieces of furniture on my porches. They listened whenever I commented and answered if I had questions. Initially, I had only intended to have the power washing done. However, I was so happy with that work as well as the men's work and attitude, I decided to have the other work done too. Plus the price was right -- extemely reasonable. They exceeded my expectations, especially when repairing the windowsill. My house is 90 years old. Most of the parts cannot be found nowadays. But they replaced the sill with a 2x8 piece of lumber, which is just the same as the original. They did this without me asking. They took no shortcuts. I am certain that I will be calling upon Premium Painting to do more work in and around my house in the future as will a few of my neighbors.

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.
