asphalt shingle, and cedar shake roof cleaning

Hi potential customers of Pro Roof Cleaning. I want to make one thing perfectly clear to all home owners is Northeastern Wisconsin that are in need of roof cleaning. No pressure roof cleaning does not work. If it did, believe me, I would clean roofs that way, as it is much easier. The only effective way to properly clean either asphalt shingle or cedar shake roofs is to use hot water, low pressure roof cleaning methods. The reason this is the case is because the algae, lichen, and molds that are living on your homes roof has roots. Lichen has deep very deep roots that have attached themselves to the shingles. You can just spray a solution onto the roof and eradicate the growths. That takes care of a third of the problem. One of the issues with this method of roof cleaning is that the growths are dead on the surface, but the roots are still living, and will be back soon. Do you really want to spend money to get your roof cleaned, then have the growths come back in less than a year ? Probably not right. there is another problem with no pressure roof cleaning. This would be that when you are just spraying a solution onto the roofs surface in order to kill the growths, how does the dead lichen, algae, and molds fall to the ground so you can then remove it ? The companies that practice no pressure roof cleaning will promise you that the rain will in time remove the growths from the roofs surface, then to the ground. This will not happen because there are still roots that these growths have holding them to the roofs surface. It would be great if No pressure roof cleaning actually worked, but it does not.  Even when these companies are encouraged by you to come back and respray the roof again, it is not coming off. This is because you need to actually get onto the roofs surface and use a hot water, low pressure roof cleaning method. Trust me on this simple fact, these companies thrive because by the time you realize that your roof is not clean at all, they have cashed your check. Also, in spite of the fact they promise to come back within a 5 year period if it comes back, they almost never do, as they already have your money.

At Pro Roof Cleaning, your roof will look as it did when new before I leave on the day I am scheduled to come. I actually get onto the roofs surface with my specialized boots (which makes my job completely safe) and then use my hot water, low pressure roof cleaning method. In no way will low pressure roof cleaning ever damage your homes roof. Asphalt shingles can stand up to 500 P.S.I. (pounds per square inch) and be completely safe. I have, and never will use more than 150 P.S.I. on a customers roof. Lets be honest, if a roof is ever damaged in any way, my insurance would be responsible for then replacing it. I of course would not want that, and it has never happened in 22 years. Also, I realize that my customers are the reason that I can be self employed, so I always treat their homes as if they were my own. After my job of cleaning your homes roof is complete, I normally meet my customer by their front door, and can then show them around to view their new looking roof! Customers are always amazed at the transformation of their homes roof. The entire process is completed same day, so you know before I leave that not only is your roof new looking again, but also that the underlying roots have been completely eradicated. The growths are now gone for a long time, and your home has curb appeal again!

I can also apply a growth and stain blocker after the cleaning is complete. This is basically a solution that puts an invisible barrier between your roofs surface, and any potential growth spore that might land on it. Basically what it does is that your roof will stay clean a few years longer. Rather than your roof staying completely growth and stain free for 4-5 years, with the blocker applied, it will stay looking as it did right after the cleaning for 7-8 years. There is a small charge to add the blocker, but it is well worth it and most customers have it applied to there homes roof. It was developed in Florida where roof cleaning is very prominent, and is a great product.

Thank you for coming to my website and reading up on how proper roof cleaning should be done. I look forward to hopefully helping you with your roof cleaning needs. You will be amazed at the transformation that happens after my job is completed on your homes roof. It will all be completed the same day. There is no promise that your roof should look clean after several rain falls. With Pro Roof Cleaning, you will see the transformation to your roof before I leave! My customers are always very pleased before I leave. I will be more than happy to give any customer whom requests it a free estimate for cleaning their roof. You can either call me directly, or go to the contact page on this site to get your free estimate. Please do not get fooled by no pressure roof cleaning pitches, it is not effective, or I would do it myself. Pro roof cleaning has 10 times the volume of customers compared to any other roof cleaning business in Northeastern Wi., I did not get this successful by trying to fool my customers. What I find is that if you do good and honest work, treat your customers right, and give all customers fair prices, you can stay self employed. It is a privilege to be self employed.  I, as a small business owner, am always fully aware that it is my customers that are responsible for my businesses success. I will always treat every customers home as if it were my own. That is my promise to every customer I meet.

Thank you,

Tom at Pro Roof Cleaning

Roof Staining and Growth Prevention

Pro Roof Cleaning offers two main methods of preventing roof growth from coming back once the roof has been cleaned. One method is zinc strips that are placed near the peak of the roof. The zinc flashing is placed near the top of the roof so that when it rains, the rain itself will distribute zinc ions down the roof and those ions will retard, and help prevent growths from reappearing on your roof. This method is effective, however, if your roof is more than 20 feet in length from peak to gutter, the ions from the zinc flashing will be used up by the time the rain reaches the bottom of the roof.

It has been my experience that a cheaper, and more effective way to prevent roof growth and staining after it has been properly cleaned is a growth and stain blocker. The most effective blocker, and the one I use for my customers is a milky white solution that is applied by evenly distributing it onto the clean roof. It works by forming a very thin barrier between the shingles themselves, and any possible growth that may be reintroduced to your roofs shingles after cleaning.  You only want to use this preventative product after all growths and staining have been properly removed by a professional roof cleaner. You do not want to seal any living organisms, or any staining under the invisible coating. If you chose to have this product applied to your roof after cleaning, there is an additional charge for this service. However, it will keep your roof looking stain free and clean longer. I would say up to two years longer if you are were to ask. I would highly recommend it just from a longevity stand point. Please feel free to inquire about this service. Pricing of this service will vary depending on the area that will be sprayed with the blocker.

Roof cleaning and stain prevention should be a part of any home maintenance plan. Your home is probably going to be the biggest investment you will ever make. Your roof is obviously a big part of that home. If your roof has an infestation of dangerous growths on it, that can also be unhealthy for that homes occupants. Getting that roof professionally cleaned, and then adding a preventative invisible barrier to keep that roof clean longer will go a long way in your homes appearance long term. It will also ultimately increase your homes value, and help in not having to replace your roof prematurely.
