Gutter & Roof Cleaning
Our team cares about your property, and are constantly striving to do more to help you maintain it. As such we offer many services besides window washing. Having your roof and gutters regularly inspected and cleaned is critical to the longevity of your home. If moss is present, we can remove it, and will take verification photos for insurance if requested. Concrete and stonework pressure washing can keep lichen and algae at bay and brighten your pathways. Additionally, we have a Heated Pressure Washing system for grease and oil stains and spills on your driveway, and we even offer leaf clearing for pathways in autumn.
Gutter Cleaning & Washing
Regular gutter cleaning prevents unsightly damages and unwanted long and short term costs. Leaves , moss, dirt and pine needles fill your gutters during the fall just as the rain begins. The debris bunches up quickly preventing proper runoff, leaving cascades of waterfalls surrounding the home penetrating foundations, walls, siding, insulation and electrical systems and are subject to quick deterioration!
Moss Removal & Treatment
Moss is not only a mark against Insurance Inspections in some municipalities, it is terrible for your roof. If left alone, moss can prevent water from flowing off the roof properly, which can lead to water and moss getting under the shingles and causing leaks in your roof. Shingles can also become dislodged and misaligned leading to a shorter lifespan for your roof.
In the Northwest, our high precipitation, lack of sun, and tree cover, requires cleaning annually. Moss, fungus, and/or lichens growing on your roof's surface will hold onto moisture, reducing the life of the roof, which can eventually lead to replacing your roof. If moss is not prevalent, roofs should last between 15 to 30 years.

(Prices vary due to sq ft, pitch, type of roofing material, accessibility, how many stories the house is, labor, and removal of the old roof, which is an additional cost)
The pitch of the roof, ease of access, and square footage of your roof all play a major factor in calculating your estimate. If you think of anything that may be dangerous or very challenging, please let us know in your contact form. We usually have special equipment we can bring if we know ahead of time. Thanks!

The pitch, or steepness, of your roof plays a large part in determining the cost of your cleaning. Special roof materials, challenging access, or the need to use a harness will cost more, but saves you the trouble and risk of doing it yourself.
1. Low Roof Pitch/Slope - This type of roof would have at least a 3:12 pitch, which means that a roof rises 3 feet for every 12 feet of its base horizontal length (not greater than5:12).
This type of roof is considered to be “walk-able“, and easy for performing a roof cleaning.
2. Medium Roof Pitch/Slope - The roof of this type would fall within 6:12 – 9:12 roofing slope range. These roofs with intermediate pitch / average slope roofs are considered to be “non walk-able”, as they represent a higher degree of complexity. They require wearing a harness and tie off.
3. High/Steep Roof Pitch/Slope – Roofs in this category have a slope that is greater than 9 inches of rise for every foot of horizontal roof’s run.
The high sloped roof is, perhaps, the most difficult and dangerous roofing surface to work on.
How bad is the moss build up? The cost of removing moss is higher than other services because of the extreme level of complexity and risk factors.
Severe moss may look pretty but it is eating your roof and opening holes into your homes precious dry bits. Cases like the ones above are at the point of being a collapse hazard.
