Flues Brothers "gentle wash" roof cleaning & pressure washing.

Save thousands on premature roof replacement add 3-5% more to the value of your home while making it sparkle and shine like new.

Stop the damage that roof staining organisms are doing to your roof. Algae, lichen and moss are feeding on the organic material that make up your shingles. In other words, your shingles are their food source. The longer they are allowed to stay and feast off your shingles the more damage they will cause.


Roof algae, lichens and/or moss can eat through your shingles and into your roof deck causing wood rot. When wood rots, moisture gets in through the cracks and creates a perfect environment for mold to grow. And mold in a home can cause serious health risks to people and pets. It is something we all want to avoid.


Insurance companies are increasingly demanding that home owners have their stained roofs cleaned. That is why it is very important to be proactive and have your roof cleaned professionally. Insurance companies already know untreated roof stains will negatively impact the overall integrity of your roof. And they are worried about future claims for mold removal on the inside of your home. Roof stains are seen as “risk” and to insurance companies that always spells money.


Energy efficiency is greatly reduced with roof covered with algae, moss etc. The roof can no longer reflect the sunlight. The algae covered shingles absorb heat thereby super heating your attic and increasing your energy costs. None of us want that!
Having your roof professionally cleaned by us is a cost saving alternative to premature roof replacement. There is absolutely no reason to re-roof your home when your roof can look like new again, for a fraction of the cost of replacement.


A dirty roof distracts from your home’s curb appeal. If you ignore those ugly roof stains no matter what else you do to the exterior of your home, those stains will be the focal point of your home’s exterior. If you are planning to sell your home, cleaning your roof can add thousands of dollars to your curb appeal.


The integrity of your shingles and your roof can be compromised by these roof staining organisms. They can actually attract bugs and animals to your home. And ultimately end up in your attic or elsewhere. Algae, lichens and moss can penetrate the shingles allowing moisture to get into the sheathing. This moisture can cause wood to rot and the odor of rotting wood, actually attracts bugs and animals. In nature the smell of rotting wood mold and mildew, is associated with food and shelter. Nine times out of ten when an animal enters through a roof or fascia board they have chosen to go through where the wood has started to rot.
