Our technicians are highly skilled and in all facets of roof cleaning and are are polite and uniformed. The methods we implement are dependent on the roofing material that we are cleaning. For example, when cleaning tiled roofs we utilize “soft washing“. This is a technology that is reliant on low-pressure cleaning and more reliant on safe non-toxic environmentally friendly cleaning products to remove the build-up of dirt, algae, mold, and mildew. This method protects your roof and especially your ridge capping from damage caused by excessive high pressure.
In addition to our roof cleaning services we also provide house washing, gutter cleaning, and much more.
Why Clean Your Roof?
Aside from the aesthetic improvement, you will have by cleaning your roof, there are a number of other important benefits to maintaining a clean roofing structure.
Here is a picture of what lichen growth can do to a roof where the home owner failed to keep their roof properly maintained by having it regularly cleaned.
Insurance companies are now recognizing that algae, moss, mildew and lichen are extremely detrimental and destructive to a building’s roof.
Roof Tile Cleaning in Austin
Central Texas homes and buildings are constructed with clay, terracotta and concrete roof tiles as well as the more common American roofing material of Asphalt Shingles.
To clean roof tiles is a specialized task. Care must be taken not to damage the roof, break tiles and force water underneath the tiles into the home or building, causing water damage.

Asphalt Shingle Roof Cleaning Austin
These organizations have drafted specific guidelines on cleaning shingles and that requires no pressure! Do not allow somebody, that is an inexperienced contractor to pressure wash your asphalt shingles. This will cause the tiny granules to dislodge and clog your guttering and pipes and also contribute to higher energy costs. This is because those tiny granules work by reflecting the sun’s rays and heat during the summer months and can insulate warm inside during the winter months.
Why asphalt breaks down under high pressure
Modern roofing shingles are comprised of a layer of fiberglass, layers of waterproof asphalt and a layer tiny mineral granules. Little bits of granule are pushed together (sometimes with a light adhesive) and a shingle is born…
But anyone who’s ever cleaned their gutters can see that the granules break off quite easily. When you use high-pressure from a power washing machine on your roof, you’ll succeed in eliminating the moss and algae, but lots of asphalt granules from your shingles will also go with it. So hitting it with a pressure washer will dislodge the granules and reduce the life of your roof.
We use a soft wash system specified by industry leaders and professionals. Soft washing will not remove your roofs granules and in addition it will kill the mold and algae so that it won’t grow back like it will if you just spray it off with a pressure washer.
Our method will completely remove all black and green algae, mold, mildew, dirt and grime whilst preserving your roof’s integrity for many years to come.
