Roof Cleaning


Why should you take advantage of the Roof Cleaning Special?

FAQ.     See before and after photos below.

(1)  What are those black streaks on my roof and why should I care?

       Can those streaks affect the performance of my roof?

       If I’m selling my home, would roof streaks affect the value?

Those streaks on your roof consist of Gloeocapsa Magma, a type of algae that thrives in our region. They have become more of a problem in the last few decades because shingle manufactures use limestone granules in the manufacturing process, which is a food source for the algae.  Roof stains are therefore an indication that your shingles are literally being eaten, quite possibly resulting in a shortened lifespan for your expensive roof. Not only that, but if allowed to go unchecked, the algae build-up can significantly diminish your roof’s reflective properties, resulting in more strain on your air conditioner and higher energy costs. Lastly, those black streaks are unsightly, and can dramatically tarnish the curb appeal of an otherwise beautiful home affecting the value at time of sale.

After our treatment you’ll be amazed by how great your roof looks, and your neighbors will probably appreciate it too! Roof cleaning is one of the quickest, most cost-effective ways to instantly improve the look of your home.

(2) How would you clean my roof?

Our cleaning process involves the no-pressure application of an industry-proven mix of algaecide & detergents, followed by a no-pressure rinse. No power washers, Chlorine, or toxic chemicals are used in the process. The system we use is recommended by ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association) and is safe for your home, family, pets, and any adjacent landscaping.

(3) Will your detergents hurt my pets or plants?

No. The solution we use is a powerful cleaning agent but is Nontoxic to pets and plants.

(4) How soon after a roof cleaning do the algae streaks return?

Roof cleanings come with a two-year guarantee that your shingles will remain algae-free; but you can generally expect it to stay clean and beautiful for at least four years before the algae becomes noticeable again. Every situation is a little bit different due to exposure and other factors.

*A lifetime Streak-Free Guarantee is available with our Zinc ridge tab treatment when used in conjunction with a roof cleaning. This guarantee is transferable in the event that you sell your home.

Partial roof cleanings are not recommended and DO NOT come with a guarantee.  It’s important to understand that all roof algae is not visible to the naked eye in its early stages; so while you may not see it in some areas, it’s most likely already there and will eventually become visible!  That’s why it’s so important to treat the entire roof surface.


(5) Do I have to be home during the cleaning?

You don’t have to be home for the cleaning, but before you leave please bring pets inside, make sure all doors and windows are closed securely, unlock any gates, and move your vehicles into the garage or out to the street. We will need to use your exterior water spigots during the process, so please make sure that we’ll have access to them and the water is on. If you won’t be home during the cleaning, please leave a signed copy of the estimate and your check on or near the front door so that we can begin work. Thank You!
