Roof and Exterior Detailing 

Serving Vancouver Island, Nanaimo, Courtenay, Comox, Campbell River, Nanoose and all points in between.

Our unique soft wash technology:

But, before you start climbing on your roof to scrape or power wash, consider this: all of that walking and scraping damages tiles even more, doesn’t kill mold, and power washing actually drives mold further into your roof. This is why Tartan Window Cleaning offers our unique soft wash system which protects and eradicates mold, algae and moss. We use a professionally mixed, gentle formula to clean roofs, vinyl siding, painted surfaces, asphalt, terra cotta, tile, shake, epoxy and wood decks, fences, pavers, concrete drives and walks, and playground sanitation without damaging wood and finishes and actually leaves a protective coat. Not only will your property look amazing, it will last longer and be healthier for you!

Rainey season is an excellent time for roof moss removal, gutter cleaning, siding cleaning.

We need about a 1.5 hour window to apply treatment and to allow for dwell time. Then bring in the rain!

It aids on the rinse resulting on some of the best results over the year, and the real bonus is the chemicals uses in treatment have virtually no adverse effects on your surrounding plants and foliage .

We have great rain gear and are ready and willing to attend to your home to get it ready for the holiday season.http://www.tartanwindowcleaning.com/   Look at our website, FAQ's give us a call if you have any other questions or concerns. 250-218-3099                                                                                                TWC_logo_.thumb.jpg.1a0364ca2bcb50d7169e

Just had word that on the a homeowner was refused insurance on a 1.1 million property due to the mossy condition of the homes roof.  Without the full removal of moss, the home would not have qualified for mortgage insurance.

Insurance companies are getting much more critical of a homes condition and the trends are to visit and inspect the home for approval whereas in the past policy's could by obtained over the phone with the exchange of documentation of the home.   In speaking with the Insurance Bureau of Canada rarely does a homeowners policy cover damage due to neglectful maintenance.

Often internal home rot and mould can go undetected for some time only becoming apparent at the time of roof replacement resulting in a more costs.  Keeping your roof free of moss is critical in the upkeep of your home. Moss removal can often be conducted with simple maintenance treatments.  The heavier the moss the more costly to remove.  Call us to discuss your home.  Jeff Mathieson 250-218-3099  www.tartanwindowcleaning.com

Why Clean my roof?

 

In the moist climate of Vancouver Island rarely does a home’s roof live up it’s life expectancy.

The first stage deterioration usually begins  with a airborne bacteria called Gleocaspa Magma a black staining this causes your roof to absorb heat. The added heat causes the shingles to curl. Asphalt shingles are covered with a top layer of particulate calcium and ceramic which is to reflect heat.  Soft washing is recommended by asphalt shingle manufactures.  The calcium is food for algae, lichens, fungi, mosses, moulds and once established can raise the shingles, causing leaks and prevent the natural flow of water off the roof. On terracotta, tile, or ceramic roofs the surface gradually breaks down as contaminants penetrate the surface making the tiles prematurely brittle and leaking. Metal roofs the paint and finish does not last and leaks.  Functionality, aesthetically, and the cost of replacement is why we must maintain our roof.  Maintenance usually commonly is  performed every 5 years. Give us a call at 250-218-3099 9-9 7 days as week.

My name is Jeff Mathieson of Tartan Window Cleaning serving mid Vancouver Island.

Much of the moss removal is at the 7 to 10 year growth.  Leaving it to this point takes significant greater efforts and chemical to correct resulting in higher costs.

Safety harness anchor installation, often 2 applications of chemical, and much more labour.

At the first sight of moss call us!

Your roof can be sprayed from the roof perimeter with the aid of ladders to kill the growths and removal can be achieved with sun and rain cycles.

Please visit our web site and call anytime from 9-9 if you have any further questions.
