Roof cleaning costs depend on several things, including the size of your roof, the type of roof you have and what type of cleaning you need to be done. The costs for blowing or sweeping debris off the roof will usually cost a few-hundred-dollars. If your cleaning involves algae and moss removal and preventative treatment, as it commonly does in the Pacific Northwest, costs can be several times that amount.
Many Factors Affect the Roof Cleaning Costs
Generally, the cost to clean any roof surface will vary with the amount of moss or algae present, the slope and pitch of the roof, the condition of your roof and where your house is located. For instance, houses in sunny areas have drier roofs, but they may have more damage from years of direct sunlight and lack of storm protection from trees.
The cost can also vary depending upon where your home is located; the type of roof you have; the design, height or slope of your roof; the time of year and weather patterns for the season; the presence of any moss or algae growth; or, any degree of neglect.
The Benefits of Working With Professionals to Clean Your Roof Outweigh the Costs
Roof cleaning is an ongoing maintenance issue for most homeowners and is best left to a professional. Professionals have the proper equipment to clean your roof safely and efficiently, saving you time in the long run and extending the life and beauty of your roof. A clean and debris-free roof increases the market value of a home far more than the cost of the cleaning.
