Cleaning South Tampa Tile Roof

Posted Posted in Tampa Cleaning Roof FL, Tile Roof Cleaning Tampa FL
Here is a medium size barrel tile roof our guys cleaned today in South Tampa.
This roof was done on a Saturday, so we allowed our guys to head on over to the Ballast Point Pier and do a little fishing, before the expected thundershowers hit Tampa today.

Our customers were tickled pink at the results of their tile roof cleaning.
They just bought this home, and moved here to South Tampa from New Orleans.
He is an architect, and his wife is a nurse who got a job at Tampa General.
He works downtown, so both of them are pretty close to their jobs, in their new home.

If you have any kind of roof that needs to be washed, give us a call at 813 655 8777 for a free estimate, with no obligation.

Soft Wash Tile Roof Cleaning Tampa Palms

Posted Posted in Softwash, softwashing roofs, Tile Roof Cleaning Tampa FL
This home in Tampa Palms belongs to a repeat customer. She had us clean her tile roof back in 2008.
She has family coming down to Tampa from up North for the holidays, and wanted her house to look it;s best.

We used our soft wash tile roof cleaning system on it today 11/20/2013, and cleaned it w/o using any pressure washing, just like we did for her 5 years ago.
This tile roof will look even better then it does now, after a few good rains.

We are proud of the high quality roof cleaning work we do, and work hard at it.
It feels good when customers remember us, to have their tile roofs softwashed again, 5 years later!

Pressure Washing Tampa Tile Roof Cleaning ??

What should I know about “Pressure Washing” my Tampa Tile Roof?

The only positive that comes with Pressure Washing or cleaning your Tampa Tile Roof is that temporally it looks clean. Let me explain.

Pressure Washing a Tile Roof by definition uses water pressure to blast away algae, mold, and mildew from the tile surface. In order to do this function to much pressure is used and the Pressure Washing process also removes color, sand and cement from the tile roof surface. This is the reason that the mold, mildew and Gleocapsa Algae come back so fast, the process has increased the surface pitting, the habitat where they can grow and multiply. Every Tile Roof Cleaning situation is different, but it would be safe to say that you will be pressure washing your tile roof again in 2 to 3 years. You are now scalping the surface of the tile and DAMAGING your very expensive tile roofing system. You would not knowingly do this to the surface of anything that you own. When you think of the cost of a tile roof, pressure washing or harsh chemical baths are not practical solutions.

The next negative will cost you money. People who pressure wash tile roofs do not do it every day. Walking on a tile roof is for Tile Roof Cleaning experts. Clearly, EVERYONE breaks tiles. The secret is taking the responsibility for what you have done and correcting the situation. The problem with pressure washers is that they have not been trained to resolve the broken tile situation and it is a lot easier to say nothing and leave the tile roof without solving the problem.

When a tile is broken it allows water to come in under the tiles. The first thing that gets wet are the wooden boards that are attached to the felt and plywood on your roof deck. The runner boards are used to attach the tile to the building. They are # 2 untreated wood and after they become wet they dry rot. After this dry rot occurs, you must either re-set the affected field area or replace the system. Pressure washing a tile roof is a very expensive way of attaining a temporary fix, ask any tampa roofing contractor ?

Pressure cleaning a flat cement, ceramic, or barrel tile roof, will often break or damage your tiles. Pressure washing a tile roof requires walking all over it. If all that walking around doesn’t bust up your tiles, the high pressure certainly can. Just try and get an inexpensive Florida Roofing Contractor to replace roof tile, and/or do leak repair to the underlying roofing membrane ! Try this test, stand on a ladder with a pressure washing wand in hand and pull the trigger. The high pressure can knock you right off the ladder! Imagine what that harmful pressure washing is doing to your tiles, and/or your roof membrane ? The surface cleaning devices used by some Tampa FL Pressure Washing company’s aren’t any better. They were designed for pressure cleaning parking lots and driveways. They are just a pressure washing contraption with their own set of problems. They are designed to “ride on air” on a flat surface. A barrel tile roof is not a flat surface, and as the surface cleaner passes over the roof tiles, it can easily smack into the edges of them like a sledgehammer, causing tile breakage. These surface cleaners also have angled high pressure cleaning nozzles, attacking your tile roof. The angled high pressure washing nozzles spray a stream of high pressure water right against the edges of your roof tiles. This causes the roof tile to buckle and move as it is forced up by the high pressure stream of water. Not only can this cause the tile to come loose, this can crack them from the bottom. These sharp, newly broken pieces of tile can be driven right into your tile roof membrane by the high pressure washing. We have seen tile roof membranes ripped apart, and bad roof leaks caused by this crude method of cleaning. These pressure washing contraptions are well known for causing roof leaks and broken tiles. Ask your local Florida Roofing Contractor ! OTHER TAMPA FLORIDA TILE ROOF CLEANING DANGERS.. THIS COULD HAPPEN TO YOU ! Read the article below from Florida newspaper, and see what happened to some unsuspecting consumers who hired the wrong Tampa Tile Roof Cleaning Company. ” TAMPA – A container with an acid residue exploded Friday morning in New Tampa, severely burning a 36-year-old man. Investigators say Kenneth Toledo, a Tampa man who owns a pressure washing business, poured chlorine and water into the container, which had previously been used to apply an acid wash. The container had not been properly rinsed, and the resulting chemical reaction caused the explosion, officials said. The container exploded as Toledo scaled a ladder to clean the tile roof of a Hunter’s Green home in the 17800 block of Osprey Point Place, pelting Toledo with chemicals and shrapnel. He was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital. His condition was unknown Friday. The explosion also blew a 2-foot-wide hole in the roof.
