I needed someone to install kitchen backsplash that would look nice with my new granite countertops. Thumbtack sent me 3 professionals that they were recommending for the job. I went with Dave Peters of Diamond Contracting LLC based on many positive reviews and a Top Pro classification from Thumbtack. It turned out to be the perfect choice as Dave Peters is a perfectionist and works on your home as if it is his. He has a keen attention to detail and is excellent at suggesting ideas for the perfect materials and color matches. I love his installation of my backsplash using spacers to assure straight lines and working adeptly around the many outlets and light switches. The backsplash and grout go perfectly with my ceramic tile floor, wooden cupboards, and granite counters. He also installed some stone veneer panels to replace ugly fake wood paneling that is a 100% improvement – looks beautiful. I also needed some power washing on the roof and vinyl siding of my house where algae, mildew, mold or moss began growing in the moist shaded areas. Dave did an amazing job with this knowing the perfect cleaning additives for the power wash to kill and clean this nasty stuff. If it is quality workmanship that you are looking for, then you need to get ahold of Dave Peters at Diamond Contracting LLC to discuss your job and provide a free estimate.

I had a great experience with Darrin of Xclusive Home. He was very responsive, friendly and most importantly did great work! He installed seamless gutters on the house and detached garage, a mosaic tile kitchen back splash, quarter rounding throughout the house and caulked and sealed the bath and exteriors...all within a week! Darrin is a pleasure to work with and offers competitive pricing, I highly recommend Xclusive Home!

I contacted Dwayne of Forza Roof Cleaning after finding them on Angie's List. He was very quick to return my call and to provide me details of his process. A proposal was sent shortly thereafter to allow me to compare his costs to several other companies I contacted. His website provided some helpful photos of what I could expect and his explanation of what he does was helpful in making a decision to go with him over the others. On the day of the service he and his assistant arrived on time and were ready to go to work. My roof is 14 years old and I have the typical black streaks found on the north-facing roof sides. There were a couple of areas of a green algae build-up (looked like a bunch of broccoli on my roof) that needed a little extra attention, which they treated thoroughly. My roof is a little on the larger size and a bit steep, but they covered all of it - even the south-facing side which had much less discoloration. (Others I met with would only do the north side.) They were thorough in their work and cleaned the roof very nicely, including the areas where there was some noticeable algae build-up. Throughout the process, Dwayne demonstrated excellent communication and put me at ease to use his services. The results speak for themselves and I feel Dwayne and company did an excellent job on my home. Using a drone, Dwayne did a nice set of before/after pictures that gave an awesome birds eye view of the roof. His 3-year warranty was another major factor in my decision as I appreciated that he stands behind his work for longer than the others in this business. I would highly recommend Forza to anyone needing roof cleaning.

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.
