Our Soft-Wash for roofs and moss removal is the safest method to clean roofing shingles. But don’t just take our word. Check out our Essex County video for a sneak at some of our happy customers!
Roofs with moss, algae, mold, lichen, and black stains will retain more moisture and cannot reflect the sunlight. As a result, this creates higher temperatures in your attic increasing cooling costs in the summer. Additionally, these living organisms are literally eating away at your roof. We consider these type of problems to be “pest control” issues and we treat them accordingly. Since we do not pressure wash roofs the desired results are not always instant. Moss can develop a root system into the shingle, just like a plant. Some moss may remove easily, but some may be firmly attached. If the moss is pulled off, the roofing granules may always remove with the moss and leave scars on the shingle. After our proprietary disinfecting detergent is applied to the moss it will die off immediately. It will decompose and the root system will release on its own. Then Mother Nature takes over and the moss will come off with each rain. The average time is 60-90 days before all of the moss is removed, depending on temperatures and how much rain is applied. Roof moss removal in New Jersey is partially responsible for many unnecessary roof replacements. A treatment can cost $400-$500 and last from 5 to 8 years.
Slate roof are never walked. We treat all slate roofs from the gutter line to prevent any loose tiles from dislodging.
Cedar roofs are in a class of their own. A cedar roof is designed to last 40-50 years. Mold and algae can soften cedar and cause premature decay. Cleaning a cedar roof really pays in the long run.
Asphalt Shingle Roofs
Never should roof shingles be power washed. Water pressure can dislodge large amounts of roofing granules and shorten the life of the roof. Water alone will not kill the organisms that cause roof stains. The manufacturer suggests chemically cleaning asphalt shingles. Maybe you’ve noticed those tiny little particles of grit in your gutters. Those are particles that may have washed after a hard rain. So, just imagine what would happen if you let someone pressure wash your roof! We at Thompson Roof Cleaning & Powerwashing follow strict guidelines for all roof cleaning procedures.
Shampoo Services for Roofs
Shampoo cleaning for roofs is our softest wash to date. This method relies on specifically calibrated detergents to clean and disinfect the shingle from all organic matter that creates roof stains. But beware! Not all roof shampoo is the same. The actual franchise Roof Shampoo uses an unassuming pressure washer device to clean roofing shingles. This can damage a roof and potentially dislodge large amounts of roofing granules. Check out our video and see what an actual “surface cleaner” is. This unassuming devise in this next video is similar design to what our major competitor like “Roof Shampoo” uses to clean roof shingles and moss. Buyer beware!
Treatment of a roof includes the use a foaming anti-microbial roof cleaning detergent which contains both an algaecide and fungicide. Application of the foam uses a pressure not greater than 65 psi. This is the equivalent to the pressure of most garden hoses. We guarantee a 100% kill ratio of roof growths including moss, algae, mold and gleocapsa magma (this is the strand that creates those ugly black stains on asphalt roofing shingles).
When comparing the expense of premature roof replacement along with the increased electricity bills to the cost of treating your roof, you will quickly see instead of it costing you to treat your roof, you’re actually GETTING PAID TO TREAT YOUR ROOF!
