North Tampa Tile Roof Cleaning 33647

Here is a barrel tile roof we cleaned a few weeks ago. This home is located in the North Tampa area, in zip code 33647. We did this job nearly 6 years ago, but the customer is selling this home, and wanted his tile roof to look brand new again.  This is a very exclusive area of Tampa! In fact, this area is full of football players!   

Barrel Tile Roof Cleaning Tampa Florida

This barrel tile roof was really filthy, but as you can see, it cleaned up really nice.  These customers were up in Tampa Palms, and were referred to us by their roofer, who did some repairs. Many Tampa Florida roofing contractors are aware of us, and our non pressure tile roof cleaning process. They know we can be counted on to clean any tile roof safely, with a minimum of walking. If you are within 50 miles of the greater Tampa Florida area, and would like to get an idea of the cost to have yo

Cleaning A Big Tile Roof Near Tampa Florida

Here is A Big Tile Roof that we cleaned recently. We started this tile roof cleaning at 9 am, and just finished an hour ago. It is now 4.51 pm, and here comes the well known Tampa summertime afternoon rain!  This was a large 5500 sq ft home, with a lot of tile roof surface on it. We were barely able to get this large roof all nice and clean, before the rains came.  This whole community in Seffner Florida got letters from their association, and this makes the 15th roof we have cleaned in

Chemically Cleaning Barrel Tile Roof In Tampa Florida

Chemically Cleaning Barrel Tile Roof In Tampa Florida   Here is a barrel tile roof cleaning job near Tampa Florida that we did last week. This luxury custom built home is 14,000 sq feet, including the 5 car garage, and the owner of this beautiful property is a repeat customer. This one had those wide barrel tiles that are quite common on luxury homes here in Tampa.    This tile  roof also had a lot of Copper designer accents on it, so we had to clean slowly, and be sur

Tile Roof Cleaning Tampa FL

Well, Hurricane Irma is gone, and we are finally back at work, cleaning tile roofs here in the Tampa Florida area.  This barrel tile roof home is located in Cory Lake Isles up in the North Tampa area. It really is a nice community, with a bunch of man made lakes. All these lakes increase the ambient humidity, and that accelerates the growth of the mold, mildew, and algae on the tile roofs in Cory Lake Isles. We think the pictures of our tile roof cleaning service speak for themselves. If yo

Cleaning Tile Roofs In Tampa Florida

It is June here in Tampa Florida, but we managed to get some tile roofs cleaned for our customers, in between the afternoon Thundershowers. The entire Tampa area is over 4 inches down in rainfall from normal, so we need every drop of rain we can get.  Yes, it can make tile roof cleaning difficult if not impossible, so we just have to work around it.  After over 25 years of cleaning roofs in this area, many of our customers are repeat customers, who know we will get their job done, when it is no

Some Barrel Tile Roofs We Cleaned In Tampa Last Week

Here are 3 barrel tile roofs we cleaned in the Tampa Florida area last week 5-12-2015   As you can see, one of them had quite a lot of tree debris, and even some Moss on the north side of the roof. 2 out of 3 of these roof cleaning customers are what we call repeat customers that we cleaned for, years ago. They remembered the great job we did, cleaning their tile roofs properly, w/o breaking the tiles, and hired us again. In fact, most of out current customers are repeat customers, and we

Lutz Florida Tile Roof Cleaning 1-14-2015

This tile roof was in the Cheval subdivision in Lutz, Florida. Our customers got that dreaded clean your roof or else letter from the Cheval Homeowners Association. They were scared to death that their HOA was going to place a Lien on their home! They were given a deadline to have their tile roof cleaned, and because we are always busy, there was no possible way we could get to them, with only a few days notice. We explained to them that the Cheval Homeowners Association only wanted them to

Tampa Florida Tile Roof Cleaned 1-15-2015

Here is a cement barrel tile roof cleaning we did 1-15-2015, in the Westchase area of Tampa Florida. This roof has what are called cement barrel tiles, that if are not cleaned properly, will have a dull, almost ugly appearance. Glazed barrel roof tiles have a built in gloss to them, and are easy to get looking their best. Cement barrel tile roofs on the other hand, need what they need to get looking like this, and unlike some Tampa Florida Tile Roof Cleaning Companies who offer low prices

Chemically Cleaning A Tampa Barrel Tile Roof 10-4-2014

Here is a barrel tile roof cleaning job near Tampa Florida that we did last week. This custom built home is 14,000 sq feet, including the 5 car garage, and the owner is a repeat customer. This one had those wide barrel tiles that are quite common on luxury homes here in Tampa. This tile roof also had a lot of Copper on it, so we had to clean slowly, and be sure not to get any of the tile roof cleaning solution on the Copper. or it could have stripped the Patina. Our customer is a car coll

Cleaning A Flat Tile Roof North Of Tampa

Here is a 6000 plus square foot flat tile roof we just cleaned yesterday 8-14-2014 up in Land O Lakes, just north of Tampa Florida. This was a fairly easy flat tile roof to clean, because it had gutters all around it. These gutters emptied into downspouts that went well underground. This building is the clubhouse for a large, Tampa area subdivision. It has a large, Olympic size swimming pool behind it. We do all the roof cleaning for a Tampa Roofing Contractor, who sent us t

A Large Barrel Tile Roof Cleaned Near Tampa

This was a large 5500 sq ft home near Tampa, with a lot of tile roof surface on it. We were barely able to get this large barrel tile roof all nice and clean, before the rains came. This whole community in Seffner Florida got letters from their association, and this makes the 15th roof we have cleaned in this subdivision. All these roofs are all barrel tile, and every home in here is 4500 sq ft and up. This customer chose us because he has seen our work, and wanted his large tile roof p

Metal Roof Cleaned Tampa FL

Here is a metal roof near Tampa we just cleaned this past week 7-6 2014 . She was not a repeat customer, but the roof cleaners she hired a few years ago damaged all her plants in the front of the house. Cleaning Metal Roofs are a lot like cleaning Flat or Barrel Tile Roofs, the chemical run off must always be accounted for, or the plants can be compromised. As you can see, we took the time it takes to properly protect these particular types of landscaping plants. We clean all types of roofs,

Tampa Palms Tile Roof Cleaned 6-05-2014

We cleaned this flat tile roof today 6-5-2014, and we are very happy with the results of this job in Tampa Palms. Few roofs look better, when they are clean, then a white tile roof, and few look worse, when they are dirty! This roof cleaning job came to us from a well known Tampa Painting Company. This customer wanted to get his roof cleaned first, before he has his home painted. These folks were very very nice people, and are from one of Tampa's original founding families! Despite our "pr

Cleaning Tile Roof Chemically Tampa FL

Here are a couple of before and after pictures of a barrel tile roof we cleaned in Tampa Palms. Like all roofs we clean, we do them chemically, and never ever use any pressure washing. These nice people were repeat customers, who used our tile roof cleaning service nearly 6 years ago. The husband is a Tampa Bay Buc's Football nut, like me. We talked all about the new coach and general manager of the football team more then we did about his tile roof. Here are the tile roof clea

Tile Roof Cleaning Tampa FL

If you have a tile roof in the Tampa, FL area that needs cleaned, you want a company that knows what they are doing. Not some jack of all trades, and master of none. It seems like everyone and their brother is advertising tile roof cleaning in the Tampa FL area these days. Some are painters who clean tile roofs, some are handymen or window cleaners, and some are pressure washers who blast away on concrete all day, and also clean tile roof, on the side. We at Apple Roof Cleaning

Tile Roof Cleaning Lake Jovita Florida

Lake Jovita is a 1,054 acre upscale, master-planned and deed restricted community north of Tampa. Its expansive landscape features rolling hills, undulating valleys, hardwood forests and nationally acclaimed golf courses. The landscape and elevation changes there are far more typical of North Carolina then they are of the Tampa Florida area. But make no mistake Lake Jovita is Florida at its finest. Our Office near Tampa is just 30 minutes to the south. We have done quite a few tile roof cle

Apple Tile Roof Cleaning Of Tampa

The dark streaks you see on your tile roof in Tampa are an algae called gloeocapsa magma. This fungus is transported by airborne spores, and by birds, squirrels, etc. Once attached to the tile roof it begins to feed on the organic matter found in your roof. If left untreated, it will continue to grow and spread, until the tile roof eventually becomes totally black. This Algae can cause tile roofs to fail prematurely, and it can raise your utility bill. You should never pres

Non-Pressure Tile Roof Cleaning Tampa FL

Non-Pressure Tile Roof Cleaning: The Safe Alternative to the Pressure Washer There’s nothing good about a pressure washer being used to clean a tile roof. The brute force of thousands of psi of water shooting out from the end of a surface cleaner, whisking away dirt, debris and discoloration seems efficient, quick and ideal. But it really isn’t a good or a safe way to clean a tile roof in Tampa. While the pressure washer is blowing dirt and debris away, it’s also often damaging

Non Pressure Tile Roof Cleaning Tampa FL

It was a busy week for us. Here are just a few tile roofs we cleaned chemically in the 33647 zip code of New Tampa. The Thanksgiving and Halloween Holidays are fast approaching, and the season is starting here in Tampa. One of these tile roofs belonged to a winter resident, who could not believe how dirty the recent rains here in Tampa had made his once beautiful tile roof! He just got back here to Tampa from his summer home up in Northern Virginia, and called us right away. These are

Roof Cleaners Tampa FL

We had a customer in Tampa call us last week 8-23-2013, and ask us if all we clean is big expensive homes, with tile roofs! She was looking for non pressure roof cleaners in the Tampa FL area, who would be willing to clean her home in Carrollwood, that has a shingle (not tile) roof. Her mother lives in the Reserve at Tampa Palms, and she told us that we are well known as the best roof cleaners, by her Mother, and all her Mothers wealthy friends. I got quite a good hearted chuckle out of

We Never Pressure Wash Tile Roofs !

Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa will never use any form of Pressure Washing on a Tile Roof. Using high pressure to clean a tile roof is a crude, and invasive form of cleaning. Instead of relying on high pressure to remove the algae and dirt, we use soaps and tile roof cleaning chemicals, specially designed to clean your roof the safest, and most long lasting way possible. The article below was written by our good friend, and fellow RCIA Master Certified Tile Roof Cleaner Chuck Bergman.

Chemical Cleaning Of Tile Roofs

Chemical roof cleaning is now the most widely accepted method of cleaning flat, barrel, and concrete tile roofs in Tampa. Pressure Washing only removes the surface layers of Algae, and in the process often damages the tiles. Chemical cleaning on the other hand kills the Algae, including it’s roots and spores, and the chemical application insures that no damage is done to the tiles. The result is a much cleaner tile roof, that will remain clean longer. Here are a few jobs we have clean

Barrel Tile Roof Cleaned In New Tampa 33647

This barrel tile roof we cleaned this week 8-20-2013 is in the Hunters Green section of New Tampa. LOL, we practically live in zip code 33647, because not a week goes by we are not in a New Tampa community, cleaning flat and barrel tile roofs. This home was quite large at 5800 sq ft, with a 4 car garage. It had a ton of expensive landscaping, and no gutters, so we had to take our time and work slow during this barrel tile roof cleaning, to protect our customers landscaping.
