Is the equipment being used designed for roofs?
Our cleaning processes have been updated and perfected over the course of our 15+ years in business to keep up with and exceed the ever-changing industry standards. Our systems are designed for optimum care for your roof cleaning and safety.
Are the technicians working on my roof qualified to be on the roof?
Our technicians are trained with experienced repair and maintenance technicians and roofers before they ever work on your home. Very few technicians make it through our interview and field training process. For new technicians, even our most basic services are performed for months in the presents of an experienced technician. Their work is routinely reviewed to ensure the work being completed is done correctly. Each technician is properly outfitted and trained with safety equipment for their protection and yours.

What can I do to prevent moss?
Moss thrives in moist, shaded areas. Keeping your roof and gutters clear of debris will help to keep your roof dry so moss spores cannot take root. Trimming back overhanging trees and shrubs will help prevent moss spores from accumulating in those areas and will allow more sunlight to reach the roof which will help keep the roof dry. Whether or not you have issues with debris or overhanging limbs on your roof, we still recommend applying some type of moss treatment to your roof regularly. These are the best methods for keeping moss at bay.

What is the difference between your two moss treatments?
Our basic zinc moss treatment is a powder that is applied to the ridge line of the roof. Each time it rains this treatment is activated to help detour moss spores from taking root. You will see white lines on your roof after this treatment in applied, it becomes a “clear tone” over time. This treatment is included with our Budget Package service.
Our signature RoofGaurd moss treatment is a liquid sodium treatment that is apply to every square inch of your roof. This treatment is active at the time of application and kills all moss spores on contact. This treatment is the more effective of the two options at preventing future moss. This treatment also removes black and green algae staining from the roof as well as other dirt spots. You will not see this treatment on your roof once applied. This treatment is included with our Value Package service.

Can you give me an estimate over the phone?
Only in rare circumstances do we give quotes over the phone. Even for simple services like roof cleaning, we require an in person estimate. This allows us to inspection your roof for the safety of our technicians and allows us to give you an accurate quote. At times, customers roofs do not even require a full clean, inspecting the roof first allows us to recommend a lower cost maintenance service instead. There are also occasions where vents, flashings, and other roof components are failing and/or leaking without the customers knowledge. In these cases, inspection the roof enables us to notify the customer of underlying issues and make recommendations before a larger problem occurs.
Do I have to be home to receive an estimate?
We do appreciate you being home during the estimate, however, it is not an absolute requirement. Your being present during the estimate helps get all your questions answered quickly and ensures we quote you on all services you are looking for. Typically, we do not need access to inside the home.
For some repairs and leaks, we may require you to be home and we may also need access to your home or attic space.
I already have an estimate, can I schedule the service online?
To schedule services, you will need to talk to our office directly. Because everyone’s roof and service is different, we need to take a specific look at your service to schedule it. This allows us to ensure the technicians have an ample amount of time on the day of service to complete everything thoroughly.
I have an estimate from you but it’s a few months old, do I need to get a new one?
Our estimates are typically good for a year or more. Give us a call to get scheduled. If for some reason we need to get you a new estimate we will let you know when you call.
