We clean roofs with a hybrid process that begins with safe manual removal to remove the majority of your roof moss, followed by a chemical treatment that will kill any moss roots or spores that we were not able to safely remove.
As opposed to companies that solely use a treatment to handle moss, starting with the manual moss removal and then applying a roof cleaning solution gives our Burnaby customers a finished product from day one, and provides the longest-lasting results.
Our process also involves clearing the roof of any debris that may be found on it, cleaning the interior of your gutters, as well as collecting any debris or moss that may have fell from the roof. We warranty this service against regrowth for two years.
We offer roof cleaning services in Burnaby that are safe for your roof and will leave it moss free for years to come. For the last 10 years, we have been cleaning roofs in Burnaby using our pressure-cleaning process.
We clean asphalt shingle roofs in Burnaby using the process highlighted above. Asphalt shingle roofs can be delicate, so having a roof cleaning contractor with experience is essential to avoid damage.
It’s also essential to find a contractor who will use an ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association) approved roof treatment to thoroughly sterilize your roof. The proper treatment will mean the difference between needing to clean your asphalt roof every 1-2 years and every 4-6 years.
More than concrete tile roofs, asphalt shingle roofs are especially sensitive to moss and algae growth. Homeowners that do not maintain their asphalt roofs under heavy moss conditions can loose up to 40% of their expected roof life.

If you have a concrete tile roof in Burnaby, we recommend you only consider roof cleaning outfits that will not use a pressure washer, and that will use a roof cleaning solution strong enough to permeate and kill all organic material on your roof. Concrete tile roofs are porous and require a heavy treatment, given the extent to which the moss infestation is able to spread. At West Coast Moss Removal, we pair our roof cleaning treatment with manual removal of the moss on your roof, to ensure you get the best possible results.
While Asphalt shingle roofs tend to deteriorate much quicker with the prevalence of Moss and Algae, a bigger concern for concrete tile roofs is effective drainage. Moss built up along valleys, cracks, flashing, and chimneys cannot block proper roof drainage and cause a costly leak. This makes it even more important to have manual removal done along with a proper roof cleaning treatment.
Having your concrete tile roof cleaned is an investment, and most of our customers only need to have their roof cleaning every 4-6 years.
Cedar roofs are in a class of their own. It’s important to maintain shakes if you intend to get your full expected roof life. Shakes will rot if moss when algae are allowed to grow freely. We can help remove the rot from your cedar shakes, and restore them to their former glory.
We also clean siding, or walls that may be covered in dirt, algae & other organics. We use a soft wash system that guarantees no damage and leaves your siding cleaner than pressure wash. Pressure washing has long been the choice for cleaning siding, but more and more people are now choosing safer methods.
