Making sense of roof cleaning pricing
When in market for just about anything, first question on everyone’s mind is simple, how much is it going to cost? With many home services, homeowners have a pretty good idea about what it’s going to cost, whether it be having the carpets cleaned, bringing a maid in for some routine cleaning, or even having the windows washed. With roof cleaning, prices can seem to be all over the map, with the cheapest options costing a fraction of the highest priced services. This leaves homeowners with a dilemma, sorting out varying methods and prices.
I’ll break down what the various companies do, to give you an idea of what you can expect.
On the low end. These companies may pressure wash, or brush the roofs, providing a surface clean. They may have insurance, and they may have WCB, or they may not. When providing strictly a one part, surface clean, prices will be the lowest. These methods leave your roof mostly clean, but when bits of moss roots are left alive, and moss spores have not be killed, your problem will return twice as fast as without a proper disinfection of the roof.
The middle of the pack. These companies are the established exterior maintenance companies who offer pressure washing. While we do not pressure wash, our pricing is often comparable to these companies. The more established a company, the more their prices will gradually rise, this the case for larger pressure washing companies. With us at West Coast Moss Removal, instead of getting just a surface clean, you get a combination of manual removal (we remove the bulk of the moss with tools in a manner that does not damage the roof), as well as a treatment that cleans your roof to the last spore, preventing the moss from returning prematurely. This method is the most gentle and effective way to clean your roof, and with our expertise we are able to price it competitively.
One the high end – There are two types of companies that price high. The two process involve a treatment at the start of the process, followed by either immediately pressure washing, or waiting for an extended period of time, and then returning to do the manual removal. Both of these methods are the most time consuming, and as a result the most expensive. These methods are less efficient, and effective than our procedure for several reasons, and you don’t need to pay more to get the best service.
