Factors that Determine Roof Cleaning Cost

HomeBlogFactors that Determine Roof Cleaning Cost

When you are staring up at an ugly, stained roof, your first thought might be whether you can afford the roof cleaning cost. What you should probably also be thinking about is the potential costs if you don’t have it done. Leaving algae, mold, and other contaminants on the roof can shorten its life, leaving you to replace it sooner than expected. As for what it will cost you to get roof cleaning done, there are several factors that go into it, so the best thing to do is reach out to us to get an estimate. Here are some of the things we will look at:

Factors that Determine Roof Cleaning Cost

  • Roof type- Some roofing materials are easier to clean than others, so your quote will factor in whether you have a shingle, metal, tile, or another type of roof.
  • Roof size- The larger your roof is, the more it will cost to clean it. This is because it takes more cleaning products and more labor hours to clean a larger roof.
  • Roof pitch- The greater the roof pitch, the more dangerous the job is and more safety protocols need to be put into place. With added risk comes a higher roof cleaning cost.
  • Roof height- This is another element that factors in the risk of the project. A single-story home will likely have a lower roof cleaning cost than a two-story home, for example.

You should also know that your roof will need to be assessed to be sure it is a candidate for roof cleaning. If there are problems with the roof, you may be asked to resolve those first for safety reasons.
