Punctual, personable, methodical. I would definitely recommend him for yard work and clean up. Jose's work for me consisted of (1) removal of a large, brambly tree; (2) cutting back branches that were hanging over my carport and (3) chainsaw work on existing stumps. He leveled off above-ground stumps that were a tripping hazard, and made vertical cuts in the large stumps to accelerate decomposition. Because Jose is relatively small-sized, he attacks tree trimming and clean up less with brute force and more with tactics. Replies back promptly to phone calls and messages - a valuable attribute absent in many blue-collar workers.

Great to work with! They were quick and did a great job removing construction debris from our bathroom renovation. The guys were a little late, but did call to let me know they were on their way.

The team (Charles, Corey and Luis) is great to work with. They were able to stay on-budget and completed the project in 3 days (project: removing a wall in between kitchen and dining room as well as adding a wall in between kitchen and study). My husband and I are happy with the results.

Adam did a great job cleaning our roof. He was easy to communicate with and delivered great results. He was upfront before the job about challenges with trees that were close to the roof and made cleaning that portion difficult. We agreed on a plan to deal with it and an adjusted price and the work was done on time and it looks great! Would recommend to others and also would hire again.

We had Walls Roofing fix two leaks in our roof - one from a garage gable coming into the main roof and one leaking pipe boot. They replaced all three pipe boots and the gable as well. Wall's attentiveness and responsiveness were excellent. Shortly after the repair, we noticed a couple of leaks in the pipe boots after an intense storm moved through the area. I called Brad and he immediately came out, fixed the problem, and ensured that no other damage had been done to our house. I would guess that it is uncommon to have a repair not go as planned and still rate the company with five stars. However, I decided to put this in my review because I wanted to emphasize how impressed I was with Walls Roofing's customer service. Like any job, small things can get overlooked. To me, the more important thing is what the company that made the mistake does to fix the problem. And on that count, Walls Roofing was excellent. You always hear about the friend of a friend who called a contractor that looked reputable, then ended up with a bigger mess than before and a contractor who cashed the check but now can't be found. Walls Roofing is not that company. I would recommend them to a friend and I would happily hire them again to work on my own house.

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.
