All year, we get questions about our roof cleaning services, with the most often asked question being – how much does it cost to have a roof cleaned?
The first thing this tells us is that you realize that roofs need to be cleaned and understand how important it is for the well-being of your home. When roofs are left with the black streaks caused by algae, lichen, and moss, it can lead to the shingles cracking and decaying, From there, the decking begins to rot and next thing you know, there are leaks in the ceiling or worse, down inside the walls. And once those things start, the unseen damage can be much worse the damage you do see.
Not having your roof cleaned on a regular basis can end up costing thousands of dollars!
Now there are three primary factors in determining roof cleaning pricing –
- The square footage of your roof
- The pitch or pitches of your roof
- Your roofing material
- The height of your home
An average price for roof cleaning is between $250 to $450. This is approximately 5% of what a new roof can cost you.
However, an extremely tall house or a house that is sitting on a steep hill, or has several different pitches adds another level of difficulty to a proper roof cleaning and may increase the price. A site visit by a team member can provide an accurate quote.
When shopping for roof cleaning services, keep in mind that the best value isn’t necessarily the cheapest price. Roof cleaning is not only a messy job, but it can create more damage and harm if the proper pressure isn’t used. A hard power washing can damage shingles as well as the siding, windows, and landscaping. An inexpensive job can indicate the contractor isn’t bonded, insured, or license either.
