 Roof Cleaning


With over 20 years of experience in the roofing and siding industry, I have witnessed countless homes damaged by so-called pressure washing "professionals" who used excessive force during the cleaning process. At our company, we apply our extensive knowledge of proper exterior building product cleaning to benefit you and your property. Our safe and effective SoftWashing technique removes moss, mold, mildew, algae, and lichen from your roof using a gentle, low-pressure approach.


Why Does a Dirty Roof Matter?


Unfortunately, that accumulation of dirt is far from harmless; it's actively deteriorating your shingles. Mold, moss, mildew, algae, and lichen pose a significant threat to the integrity of your roof. These organisms take root in between the shingles, and in severe cases, even penetrate through them. As they consume the lime in the shingles, they release acids that further degrade the material. Ignoring this problem is akin to neglecting a car in Connecticut during winter, where the salt causes rust. Your roof needs regular washing too.


A Shocking Revelation


Keeping your roof clean has additional benefits, including savings on your electric bill. Unless your shingles are already black, the black streaking you see is caused by Gloeocapsa magma, a bacteria that spreads across your roof, turning mere streaks into a dark sheet of buildup. Black surfaces absorb and retain more heat, preventing effective cooling of your home and forcing you to run your air conditioning more frequently. Consequently, this results in higher electric bills.


Choose our services to ensure your roof remains clean, efficient, and well-maintained.
