We needed a some serious pressure washing done on our tile roof here in West Linn from several years worth of moss build-up. The team from CWAGS showed up on time and were eager & ready to get to work. The job was huge, but they took their time to ensure that everything was done exceptionally well, down the very last detail. Their price was great, their attitudes and work ethic were clearly fantastic, and their work was beyond excellent. These variables make it really easy to recommend them to anyone, and we will be referring all of our friends and family to their business based on such a wonderful overall experience with them. It's rare to have such detail and care put into a job these days. We hire lots of contractors for all sorts of jobs, and we definitely feel like CWAGS is on the very top of that list now. We will hire them back undoubtedly.

Absolutely top notch. And I'm picky. I got top quality. Honest, respectful, reliable. Fair price, delivered exactly as promised. Cleaned a huge tri level home, including cabinets & drawers inside and out, 31/2 bathrooms, tile, laminate, mirrors, appliances, windows inside and out, deck and hard scape. He said it would be perfect and it is. Best carpet cleaning I've ever had, wished he had been cleaning my carpets all along. Highest recommendation. Many thanks, Alexander

Great experience with Jorge! He answered and responded very quickly. Showed up promptly and worked efficiently getting a tile roof cleaned up. This was the first time I have hired him and as a realtor I plan to call him again. I recommend his services highly.

Excellent Service, 5 plus stars - Allen called right back, came out on time and sent us an email of a detailed quote for all the services we talked about and priced them separately so we could choose what we wanted or all projects at the same time - Allen went beyond doing an excellent job, our home and other areas he cleaned look new again. Our home had moss on the roof and the house siding hardiplank needed cleaning and well every place needed some help and areas we could not see with our home being 2-1/2 to 3 stories high and Allen took before and after pictures so we could see what was needing to be done and was nice seeing the pictures for areas we could not see from the yard or street. Have already asked Allen to put us on his yearly maintenance schedule and already referred Allen to friends who have also hired him and were very pleased. You cannot ask for a more professional, honest, fair and good pricing company to hire for your roof cleaning and roof moss removal, pressure washing, gutter cleaning. (window cleaning we will have done next and we have no doubt Allen will do an excellent job).

Ian went above and beyond with the moss removal and cleaning of our large, multi-hip and valley tile roof; truly, the best cleaning we’ve ever had. He also took special care by tarping our multiple rock dry beds and took extra time in cleaning up when he was finished. I would highly recommend him as his work was of stellar quality.

The young men did a FABULOUS job cleaning my tile roof. Considering it was 9 hour job, I will concede that their price was reasonable. Clean up after pressure washing could have been a bit more thorough. I would recommend this company and will hire them again.

My really big, cement tile roof needed deep cleaning and these guys made it look spectacular. Not an easy job, there were no complaints, up-selling or extra charges. I did give them a tip for a job well done and expect to retain their services from here on out.

I have used Elements services several times. Paul is very diverse in the knowledge and skills of other services. He has cleaned my windows 3 times now. I had him clean my roof this year and treat it. Also, he did a mosaic tile job on the back wall over the shower/tub in my spare bdrm. Came out great! Look forward to having him again.

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.
