How long does the process take to clean my roof?

Do I need to be present for the service?
No you do not. We ask that all doors and windows are closed, and for the outside water source to be on. We also ask that all outdoor furniture is moved away from the surface to be cleaned.
How much does roof cleaning cost?
It depends on three things; Size (sq ft) Pitch (how steep) and complexity of the roof (includes excessive moss or excessive peaks).
What causes those black stains on my roof?
Most black stains on roofs are caused by algae (Gloeocaspa Magma). This is an airborne spore that can land on most any roof, and can actually harm your roof by eating into the limestone that is a component of many shingles today. When it rains, the algae can slowly spread down the roof, adding more stains and streaks. We can not only remove the algae, but help keep it from coming back. Major shingle manufacturers recommend that you clean this algae off — but not to use high pressure washing to do it. Have wood shingles on your house? We can clean those too!
How long before I see the full results of roof cleaning?
In most cases, you will see the results within minutes but, if the roof has actively growing moss, it could take a couple of weeks for the treatment to penetrate and reach the root system.
Why do I need to clean my roof?
In addition to looking ugly, the root system of the various types of algae dislodges the granules that protect and give color to your shingles. Over time, the mildew and algae slowly work to deteriorate the integrity of your shingles and gives your home an old, dirty ugly appearance. Ultimately, it reduces the lifespan of your roof.
How often should I get my roof cleaned?
Once it has been professionally cleaned, it should look good for 5-6 years. But it depends on environmental conditions and the number of trees in close proximity to the house. The algae will come back quicker in a wooded area as it thrives in damp, dark areas.
