Specializing in Cedar, Tile, Shake and Composition Roof Cleaning Services in Portland
One of the pillars on which we have built our excellent reputation is the great roof cleaning services we offer. Yet, how do you quantify what makes one roof cleaning so much better than another? Mostly, this difference comes from expertise and care. When you add in our access to exceptional, proprietary roof treatments, you have the ingredients for an exceptional roof cleaning experience.
One of the common mistakes made by other roof cleaning firms is that they treat all roofs the same way.
Regardless of whether it’s a composition, tile, composite, metal or cedar shake roof, they want to apply their “one solution fits all” practice to all roof types.
At All Surface Cleaning Company, we know that there are huge differences in how the various roof types need to be maintained.
Even within the same roof material type, there are various methods that need to be used depending on your roof’s unique characteristics and its surrounding environment. Following are the most common reasons for roof cleaning or roof treating:
Moss – One of the most common reasons for a full roof cleaning and treating.
Debris – This is hard to avoid in the Portland Area and can be a precursor to moss.
Algae – Less common by itself, but often accompanies moss, particularly below upper roof downspouts that empty onto a lower roof.
UV from sun exposure – Damages all roofs, but particularly cedar shake roofs.
Deterioration – Cedar roofs are subject to wood rot and insect infestation.
Aesthetics – The homeowner may simply be tired of an ugly roof (it can account for a major portion of the frontal view of your home) or in preparation for selling (increasing curb appeal.)
There are numerous methods that we employ for maintaining a roof, including several combinations of roof cleaning and treating.
