Excellent is all I can say. I usually don't have good experiences with any kind of people that I need to call to get work done. But in this case, I can't thank Richard enough for his work, professionalism, responding right away to my email, his pricing and he was here when he said he would be. He met every one on the things you have listed and went beyond what he said he would do. THANK YOU Richard. And Thank You Thumbtack for getting me in touch with Performance Solar. I will definitely being having Richard come back, cleaning my gutters and also some other work I need to get done, that his company does. GREAT JOB & EXPERIENCE, that I finally got a contractor who stands behind their word and did what he said he would do. THANK YOU!!!

I needed some roof repair because of dry rotting. Ben was extremely professional, and was honest about the work he would do and the cost. I would definately hire him again for other small home projects and recommend him to others.

Stan with Hard Hatters roofing was fantastic. The new roof took only a few days to install, and he did a few other odds jobs to help us wrap up the exterior of our home. He was very professional and accommodating. We also have small children and he was great about cleaning up roofing nails/debris in the yard every day. The finished product looks amazing and he also gave us a nice portfolio with the warranty information. We were thrilled with his work and would recommend him.

I've used STR on multiple home improvement projects from paving and decking to bathroom remodeling and have never been disappointed in the outcome. Their work is always high quality and so far every project has been completed on time and within budget. Joel has treated each project as a reflection of himself and has done whatever was necessary to ensure complete satisfaction with the final product.

Leon did a roof cleaning and a mold inspection at our home. The roof cleaning was amazing, we had a roof with black algae streaks and he cleaned it with his no-pressure washing system and it looks like new shingles again. They also tested our home for interior mold, and fogged it with their organic product that killed the mold spores. Will defiantly call again if needed.

U-Save came out to do the job when they said they would. They did an excellent job cleaning my gutters and installed gutter guards at the same time. I now have peace of mind knowing this is taken care of. Would definitely recommend. Great job at a fair price.

It was a very positive experience working with Titan Exteriors. First they responded quickly, showed up on time for estimate - accurately gave day work would be done, and at a fair price. No tricks or "add-ons" after the fact. Work quality was good - our house looks much, much better!! We would recommend Titan for house washing.

We are very pleased with the work done by them on our patio roof. Even with some additional work we requested that they do, changing out a window to a sliding glass door , it was done professionally and on time. Tom and his crew were very respectful and hard working and cleaned up every day. We will request this company to do some other work for us in the future. I would recommend them to others needing work done on their home.

I have inside mirrors from ceiling to floor on one wall of my living room, extending down my spiral staircase to my rec. room and mirrors around a hot tub in my rec room. These were impossible for me to clean..they were so cloudy and looked horrible. Tim came out within 2 hours of me calling him. Tim and his assistant went straight to work making my mirrors sparkle and I mean SPARKLE. They even removed old paint chips on the mirrors. They were very tidy and I asked him for his business cards to recommend him to my friends and family. I highly recommend Tim Waldron, he is a true gentleman and extremely professional and competent.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.
