Tile Roof Cleaning is the Austin Area
If You Need Quality Tile Roof Cleaning...
We specialize in cement tile and clay tile “Soft-Wash” Roof Cleaning throughout Austin and the surrounding 512 area code.
Cement tile and clay tile roofs require special handling since they are much more delicate than asphalt shingle roofs. We have experience in all roofing substrates regardless of type and take pride in our ability to safely clean cement and clay tile roofs.
We are highly skilled and professionally trained in all facets of cleaning tile roofs and our technicians will be especially careful with your valuable tiles. The methods we implement are specific to tile roofing material and we do not pressure wash them. When cleaning tiled roofs we utilize what is known in the industry as “soft washing“. This is a technology that is reliant on minimal low-pressure cleaning and relies more on safe environmentally friendly cleaning products to remove the build-up of dirt, algae, mold, and mildew.
Tile roofs are more porous than other roof types and black algae can build up in those pores. Some cleaning companies resort to pressure washing to get the black streaks off but we avoid high pressure. The roof will be clean after pressure washing, but the tile’s protective coating will be removed. So be aware that you will need to have your tile roof refinished if you choose to have it pressure washed. Our soft-wash system will avoid this type of damage and prevent the need for re-coating. Soft-washing also prevents future growth by killing the algae and mold, unlike pressure washing that simply sprays the algae off, leaving tiny patches of the microorganism behind which will begin to “seed” and regrow immediately.
Along with our professional 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 lichen are extremely detrimental and destructive to a building’s roof. The lichen have small roots that embed themselves into the tiny pores and micro-fissures of cement and clay tiles as well as the asphalt shingles pictured above.
