No-Pressure Roof Cleaning

The average cost per sq ft for roof replacement is $5.43

The average cost for roof cleaning that extends the life of your roof is 20 cents per sq ft.  

We clean your roof using only methods approved by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturer's Association, which dictates that NO pressure is to be used.  This ensures that your roofing warranty remains intact and that the job is done correctly.  This ensures the long life of your roof while restoring the curb appeal of your home. 

The black streaks you see on a roof are a cyanobacteria called Gloecapsa Magma.  Why does it like roofs so much?  It feeds off of the Limestone filler on your shingles, shortening the service life of your roof.  It thrives in moist environments with lower levels of light, which is why you generally see it on the north side of your roof and not the south.   It's very unsightly but we have the solution to that problem with our no-pressure washing system that is fully approved by the ARMA,  the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association.

In addition to killing the Gloecapsa Magma, mold, moss and lichens are also killed.  While the black staining will be gone immediately after treatment it will take a  rainfall to remove the remnants of leftover moss due to it's fibrous nature.  Lichen may take longer due to the way they take root into your shingles.  Every roof is different in that regard.

Our system ensures there will be no damage to your roof, home or landscaping.  Other systems touting amazing results using some form of pressure and Sodium Hydroxide at an outrageous price aren't A.R.M.A approved and can void your shingle warranty by removing the granular surface of your shingles.  They tout it as being safe, but Sodium Hydroxide has no place on your home due to it's caustic nature.  It's great for stripping paint and opening drains but not for cleaning a roof.

Restoring your roof back to that "New" look with a no-pressure roof cleaning is generally less than 10% of the cost of a new roof.  Therefore, there is no need to replace when you can clean it safely, effectively and affordably.

Estimates are always free and the results are stunning.
