If we have a niche, it would probably be doing large, hard to do tile roofs. Here is one we cleaned awhile ago.
If you look at one of the pictures, you will see the Manlift we used to avoid walking all over this tile roof. This home was put on the market after we completed the Tile Roof Cleaning Using Lift, and the owners were adamant about not having any broken tiles. Yes, the use of a Manlift adds a little more expense to any tile roof cleaning job, but it allows us to safely clean the tiles, w/o any walking on them! This home is in the north part of Tampa. Home values in this area are at an all time high, so these owners decided to list this beautiful home for sale, and move up to the Florida panhandle area, once it sells. Like myself, the owners moved to the Tampa area back in the 1970’s. Like myself, their Kids are all grown and successful. In fact, we spent a considerable amount of time showing each other pictures of our Grandchildren! I am 64 years old, and it was sure cool to meet some customers from my generation!
So, if you are looking into getting your tile roof cleaned, and you want it done right, give us a call at 813.655.8777
This is a barrel tile roof we recently did, that we cleaned nearly 6 years ago, located in North Tampa in the 33647 zip code. The owners of this beautiful home have decided to sell, and wanted this tile roof to look perfect. Several of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers live in this luxury subdivision, and most of the homes are on the Lake.
When you do a great job, your customers tend to remember you, and the owners of this beautiful home told their realtor to be sure they called us, to clean their barrel tile roof again.

Roof cleaning measures such as pressure washing can remove or roughen the surface of the roofing material, reducing the intended productive life of the roof. At best it is a messy, temporary solution which would need to be repeated frequently. This sort of procedure also does nothing to kill the spores that created the Algae and Black Mold. Plus, Pressure Washing will damage your roof! will give more details. Look at some of the damage it can cause below.
Copper strips is a natural “solution” to roof moss, algae and mold problems.
We feel Copper Strips perform far better then Zinc Strips do here in the Tampa, Florida area.
When fitted on a clean roof, the Copper Strip will HELP, but not totally prevent plant growth on your Florida Roof by exposure to air and water which causes the copper to oxidise, creating Copper Sulphate which runs down the length of your roof in the rain water. Gutter Cleaning helps to minimise unnecessary weight on the roof that can affect its integrity and longevity.
This is deadly to roof plant spores and will therefore HELP keep your roof free from Algae. This effect is obvious under copper vent pipes or lead flashing’s under chimneys.
Copper Strips —the low cost, natural alternative to repetitive roof cleaning, HELPS put an end to moss, algae and Mold on your Tampa Florida roof. If you require any help with the replacement or repairs of your roof, contact us today.
I feel the Copper Strips work, to a degree.
In our opinion, they are “better then NO roof protection”.
Plus, the Copper Strips look FAR better in our opinion, taking on a nice Copper Patina over time.

Is there Black Roof Algae on your Tampa Roof ?
Algae growth on roofs has reached unprecedented levels in many parts of Florida today. It creates a dull and dirty appearance which can reduce the value of your Florida home. Roofing materials like tiles, slates, cement and all become dull and weakened by Algae and Black Mold growth. Even the thinnest layer of Algae and Black Mold is a problem because it acts like a sponge, absorbing water, which increases the weight and stress on your Florida roof, shortening its productive life. Heat damage is another problem when there is Algae and Black Mold on your roof as it can push the tiles up and crack them.
Much of Tampa Florida’s unprecedented spread of roof Algae and Black Mold can be traced to the Clean Air Act which reduced the output of Sulphur (poisonous to moss) into the atmosphere via coal and fossil burning power stations, or domestic fires and unleaded fuel. Roof Algae which would have been previously killed off by this sulphur in the Florida atmosphere now requires direct action through commercial roof repair and maintenance like regular roof cleaning to prevent it from spreading.
Roof cleaning measures such as pressure washing can remove or roughen the surface of the roofing material, reducing the intended productive life of the roof. At best it is a messy, temporary solution which would need to be repeated frequently. This sort of procedure also does nothing to kill the spores that created the Algae and Black Mold.
suggests that no pressure roof cleaning process not only cleans your roof safely, it also kills this Algae, so it doesn’t grow back so fast!

Tile Roof In North Tampa
Most roofs need to be cleaned every few years, especially here in the Tampa Florida area. The high volume of rain, humidity, wind and other factors make having a clean roof in this city a tough task. Regular shingles absorb a lot of moisture and become much more susceptible to algae growth and potential mold. Factors like high pollution or being near a highway can even affect how dirty your roof gets.
Having the right kind of roof tile can make all the difference when it comes to having a clean roof. Tampa roof cleaning can be a regular need, but one of the ways to reduce that is by installing composite roof tiles. They are highly durable and almost never need to be cleaned. It rains often enough in Tampa that a good natural wash from a good shower can leave these roofs looking spectacular.
Unlike regular shingles, composite roof tiles from Brava (www.bravarooftile.com) are highly weatherproof. Since they are made from recycled plastic they absorb almost zero water. The chances of algae, mold, or water damage from these roof tiles are next to nothing. If they do need to be cleaned for one reason or another it is extremely easy. When the time does comes, Apple Roof Cleaning is the company to call to clean your roof.
With all the sun that Tampa gets UV damage and roof bleaching is all too common. With Brava’s composite roof tiles there’s no need to worry about your roofing becoming faded over a few years. Their roof tiles are the only kind to be Miami-Dade Certified for their UV ray protection. This means your roof will look amazing for years to come no matter how much the Florida sun throws at it.
Composite tiles are offered in many styles like cedar shake, slate and barrel tile. Most regular clay barrel roof tiles cannot be pressure washed due to their fragile nature. A powerful stream of water will shatter the tiles almost immediately. With composite barrel tiles this is no longer an issue. The highly durable plastic can withstand a high-intensity pressure wash. In most cases an aggressive pressure washing won’t even be necessary with Brava’s roof tiles.
Most roof materials need cleaning due to algae, pollution, and regular dirt but with composite roofs you’ll rarely if ever need a full deep cleaning. When you need a roof cleaning in Tampa, give us a call at (813) 655-8777
