Safe Tile Roof Cleaning Jacksonville, Florida

Here is an example of a beautiful tile roof cleaning. This particular roof spans nearly 8,000 sq. ft. and had just been cleaned 1.5 years before the photos below. 

The reason for sharing is that this roof really shouldn't require cleaning again so soon, but it was cleaned improperly. The previous "roof cleaner" used high pressure, and actually stripped the glazing from these tiles. The damage done is irreversible, and leaves the tiles looking dull, compared to their original appearance. 

You would think that pressure washing a tile roof might be alright, because tiles are tough. The issue is that they are not meant to withstand such high pressure close up blasting. Inexperienced roof cleaning companies who use pressure washers to clean roofs are causing lasting damage, voiding warranties, and they don't even get to the root of the problem. Some may use a high pressure wand and blast away at individual tiles or shingles, while others may pressure wash using a concrete surface cleaner. Presumably they dial down the pressure, but even that is still wrong and can cause unwanted damage. The fast swinging arm of a surface cleaner can break tiles if it comes into contact with them. Surface cleaners are designed for flat surfaces, not rounded tiles, so it won't even blast all the algae off evenly. 

Speaking of algae, that's the part these high pressure roof destroyers are missing. Some may use "shampoos" or other weak cleaners, but they still rely on damaging high pressure blasting to clean your roof. The cleaning doesn't last very long, because it's algae, moss, lichens, and other organic contaminants that cause a dirty roof. If the cleaners you're using do not kill these organic invaders, their roots and spores will remain no matter how much pressure you blast them with. This means they will infest the roof again quickly, essentially negating the good they may have done by voiding your warranty with high pressure!

To the OP I completly understand if you make that statement in the context of your sales pitch.  But other than that its not totally true. WE clean roofs and are also a paint contractor and repaint and  restore tile roofs all the time.  We just sealed a classic terricotta clay tile roof yesterday that looks amazing. Clay tile is amazing. I say that because like I told the customer. Its like a classic car. Of all the tile roofs I have cleaned in 20 years its the only tile style that I can get to look as good as the day they installed it. ( that being said OP your original statement is at least 80% true)  If you let me seal it it will be better. Kinda like a frame off restoration on a car.  He cannot believe what I did. I took an old abandoned for 2 years house roof where the tile was as black as muck and made it better than new. 

Chris I almost came back down and told him "deals off" . But he was not home so I stayed. I used my normal mix beefed up and hit the worst spot 3 times without the least bit of change.  I think it had a baked on  glaze locking the GM in.  I persisted and won that battle. What a thrill when i seen his face. He asked me at least 5 different times. "YOu used your pressure washer didn't you?" You had to pull it out didn't you?   Nope we don't ever do that. EVER MAN!

Thanks Chris. This one was in the exclusive Deerfield community if I remember right. That is the south side area of Jacksonville, off of Southside Blvd. Very nice homes, many with tile roofs that need cleaned!

Guns and hoses, I know what you're getting at, and nice job on the restorations! My point is only that the original glazing can never be restored. Just like that classic car. You might be able to put a new clear coat on it, but the last thing anyone wants is to damage or lose the existing one! It is far more valuable and desirable in original condition than repainted. 

As you know, our clients don't have to worry about paying to restore the tiles on their roofs, because there is zero damage from our process.

Yep I agree.  I look at the other angle too.  That being, as long as their are hacks out their doing it the wrong way it only makes more work for me. Friend or foe, it makes me dough.  Becuase I have made a lifetime income going behind hacks. My target customer is the one that knows the value of "paying for what you want" and has already made the mistake of "getting what you pay for."  All customers have a paint horror story. We have made a living being on the flip side of that coin.
