Kevin Donath General Contracting replaced our roof, repaired some ceiling and wall cracks and a bathroom faucet issue. He was very professional. He went up on the roof and showed us pictures of the roof issues as part of the estimation process. Because of that he had an accurate idea of the job and his estimate was fair and accurate. The yard was left in good condition. We would recommend him for roof repair / replacement as well as any other repairs needed around the house.

All I can say is that we wish we had met Tony years ago. He was excellent! Very knowledgeable about every aspect of home repair and maintenance. As if that wasn't enough, he was dependable, cleaned up after himself, extremely honest, helped us work within a budget that we could manage, didn't waste money in getting us to purchase equipment that he had, oh, did I say honest? (All the items I mentioned we had previous bad experiences with...so you can imagine the relief to find someone with integrity, pride in his work, personable, and very trustworthy.) I cannot rave enough about Tony and his work! Absolutely wonderful!! We are in the midst of putting our house up for sale and he did these things for us: 1. took an old sink vanity out, replaced with a new one (and found the best place to get it in terms of beauty and cost) as well as all plumbing fixtures (after checking that all pipes underneath were in good working order.) This was all after discovering that the original main bathroom sinks we wanted to replace had been originally done with weird specifications and we wouldn't be able to use any standard sized vanity tops...ie it would cost a fortune to try to replace and might lead to needing to replace the top and full furniture under. 2. took off old wallpaper from that bathroom, cleaned the walls thoroughly, caulked, repainted. 3. painted our main kitchen (after he caulked around all the cabinets) 4. replaced old sink fixtures and made sure all was in good order under the sink. 5. replaced various light fixtures inside and outside the house. 6. helped us deal with a front porch roof where first birds, then squirrels then birds again found a home. Initially we thought they'd leave if we made sure small open areas in 4 corners were sealed. They didn't--tony had to take the whole roof off, clean up the mess, replace wiring that had been chewed and replaced a light fixture, installed molding all around to make it look good, caulked every millimeter and then painted the whole thing. 7. power washed my whole house and deck and was careful to use the right power so we wouldn't end up with a lot of paint coming off. I'm moving to Ohio and want this guy to do a road trip over!!! Really I'm serious!!

Mr Whitman has done several projects in my home. He has installed new wood floors in my kitchen and one bedroom as well as carpet and mouldings through the rest of my house. He's has installed new cabinets in my kitchen along with a new dishwasher. His attention to detail is exceptional and I would most definitely hire him again.

Over the years Patrick has done many projects for us. He has remodeled our bathroom, laundry area, installed a front door and stove hood in our kitchen, repaired our main staircase, replaced our garage roof and most recently designed and built a 15 x 23 deck with a stone planter and paved walkway. He also refurbished a rental home for our daughter. Patrick always does an outstanding job. He is very professional and stands by everything he does. The deck design was beautiful and the result was exactly what he promised. We could not be happier. I highly recommend Patrick for any home improvement or design and build project. I am sure we will have more projects for him in the future!

Terry is my new handyman! I am so impressed with his work and honesty. His prices are very reasonable and he is a hard fast worker. He painted a sunburst ceiling in my kitchen and it looks amazing. I get so many compliments. His partner and George and him brought plastic to cover any cabinets and furniture. They cleaned everything up. They also painted my living room and I absolutely love it.

    James and his company dis our bathroom renovation. We had our tub replaced with a 3 piece unit. It was installed and usable the same day. We also had granite tiles put on 1/2 the walls and the complete floor. We were very pleased with the work and clean up. It was completed in 3 1/2 days. Tub removed, unit installed, granite installed, grouted, walls painted and ceiling stippled. Their service was very professional. I can't say how it could be improved because we absolutely love our new bathroom. We were happy we chose Cutless Construction and when we are ready for our kitchen...they will be who we call!!!

    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.
