Here are some pictures we took before and after we finished Cleaning Algae Resistant Shingle Roof in Tampa. Cleaning Algae Resistant Shingle Roof is not a job for an inexperienced roof cleaning company. Most roofing shingle manufacturers are using the 3M System that consists of adding additional Zinc and Copper Granules to you roof. These Zinc and Copper Granules are easily and forever removed by any form of pressure washing, or the use of improper roof cleaning chemicals. Once these Zinc and Copper Granules are removed by pressure washing and/or improper cleaning, your roof no longer has the algae resistance you paid for!
The way the 3M Algae Block system works is this. The Copper and Zinc Granules that are embedded in your roofing shingles secrete Zinc and Copper Sulfate, every time it rains. Zinc and Copper Sulfate are natural fungicides that kill any mold, mildew, or algae upon contact. This is how algae resistant shingles keep your roof clean. Many makers of these algae resistant shingles have a warranty, and will actually pay for your roof to be cleaned under warranty! Here in the Tampa Florida area, many shingle manufacturers will send you to Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa to get your algae resistant shingle roof cleaned, under warranty.
So, if you get a letter from your homeowners association to get your roof cleaned, check with your roofer or builder. You may have algae resistant shingles installed on your home, and not be aware of it ? If so, we can assist you in getting the cost of the roof cleaning covered under warranty!
We constantly get asked “Do algae resistant shingles work, and are they worth the extra money” ? The answer is a resounding YES! They work so well that they have actually hurt the business of roof cleaning companies in others area of the USA. However, here in Florida, our heat and very high humidity overwhelm them, so we are always Cleaning Algae Resistant Shingle Roofs.
Here is a South Tampa Tile Roof cleaned last month inthe 33602 Zip Code. These old South Tampa tile roofs sometimes take 2 or even 3 coats of the expensive tile roof cleaning chemicals, but if that is what it takes to make the tile roof of this customer look like new, then that is what it takes! Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa was not hired because we are the lowest priced tile roof cleaning service in South Tampa. We were hired because we are the very best, most experienced roof cleaning company.
This customer had his tile roof washed previously by some company he found in a Google Search, who said they “specialized” in “all aspects” of Exterior Cleaning. He was not happy with the previous roof cleaning service, so this time, he asked his Tampa Roofing Contractor who he should hire, and we were suggested to him by his Roofer. He told us about how these so called “Exterior Cleaning Experts” he found in a Google Search for “Roof Cleaning Tampa” did a terrible job cleaning his tile roof! This customer is a Doctor who works at Tampa General Hospital. He took off work that day to watch these inexperienced people clean his tile roof. Even though it was not completely cleaned, they demanded full payment from him. He was told “All of our tile roof cleanings do not look their best until it has rained 3 or 4 times” By lying to him, this roof cleaning service he found on Google were able to not only get paid in full, but also were spared the considerable expense of another coat or two of the expensive roof cleaning chemicals! Then, to add insult to injury, when he called these roof cleaners back after 3 or 4 rains, because his tile roof was still not clean, this is what they told him. He was told that they were only sub contractors, hired by the people he found in the Google Search for Tile Roof Cleaning In Tampa! These roof cleaning sub contractors asked him how much he paid, and he said “1,500.00” The roof cleaning subcontractors said they were only paid 500.00 By Tampa Roof Cleaning, and because of that, they could not afford to give his tile roof the necessary 2 or 3 coats of the expensive tile roof cleaning chemicals! The Doctor told us he felt so stupid, because Tampa Roof Cleaning was number one in his Google Search for “Roof Cleaning In Tampa”. He told us he THOUGHT he was dealing with a real tile roof cleaning company, but later found out that this Tampa Roof Cleaning outfit was nothing more than a middleman who got the money and the job from him, then hired another outfit to actually clean the roof! BEWARE !
When you hire Apple Roof Cleaning, you are dealing with the best, and most experienced tile roof cleaning company in Tampa. Unlike other roof cleaning services found in a Google Search, when you call us, the people you talk with are the people who are going to actually clean your tile roof! No Middlemen or Sub Contractors here!

This is a Barrel Tile roof we recently cleaned, that is located here in the Tampa area. We cleaned the tile roof next door to this customer, and when he saw how good his roof could look, he gave us a call.
This Barrel Tile roof was not filthy, like some we clean, but this customer, and his neighbor live in what is called a deed restricted subdivision who will send out a roof cleaning letter if the roofs are not spotless. LOL, this particular homeowners association are known as one of the worst property managers in the entire Tampa Florida area!
Everyone here at Apple Roof Cleaning are animal lovers, and this customer had the cutest pair of Pugs, who somehow kept getting out, during this Barrel tile roof cleaning.

Their Puppies start at 2500.00, because both Dogs are AKC Champions! LOL, yes, they are Champions all right, Champions at getting outside, when we are trying to clean their barrel tile roof!
We are big time Tampa Bay Buc’s Fans, and so is this customer! They are Season Ticket Holders like us, and we talked for a long time about the loss of Tom Brady! Well, we tried to talk, because a couple of very loveable little Dogs would not stop licking us!

What you should know about cleaning your roof. DON’T REPLACE IT..CLEAN IT!!
Your house is most likely your biggest investment. According to a roofing contractor, your roof is one of the most expensive parts of your house, so if it gets damage it could become a serious problem.

It is extremely important to have the utmost in confidence in your decision before hiring a qualified residential roofing contractor. According to a commercial roofing contractor, getting roof repair is an essential part of preventing water damage. Looking for a Chesapeake siding and roofing company?
Certified Roof Cleaning Institute of America contractors only use chemicals approved by the ARMA* Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association and do not use any pressure washing on your shingles, if some depp cleaning sounds interesting for your home we invite you can find out more here. RCIA roof cleaning contractors also provide our customers with technical bulletins directly from Asphaltroofing.org and shingle manufacturers to prove that our procedures and chemicals are properly formulated for roof cleaning, they even do roof repair if need it. Our chemicals provide enough cleaning power to remove all mold, mildew, and streaks…without any pressure washing or heavy rinsing.
We 100% guarantee your roof will look brand new!
Pressure washing is never recommended because it will remove a large amount of the ceramic coated granules from your shingles, which will void the warranty. Even low pressure will cause granule loss and shorten the life of your shingles; if this happens you will need to hire the best roof repair company to fix the damage. If you have ever cleaned out the inside of your gutters you will notice granules in them just from the rain taking them off.
Think what any additional pressure would do to your roof. For instance, you see someone cleaning a roof with pressure and it appears they have done a good job just because the streaks and discoloration are gone, but guess what? So is a large amount of the protective ceramic coated granules which insure your shingle’s warranty. Nobody wants to replace a prematurely failed roof due to an incompetent roof cleaning contractor, and you shouldn’t have to.
Apple Roof Cleaning offer an unconditional warranty against any streaks reappearing on your shingles.
You should always use a ‘chemical only’ cleaning process for your roof. Roof cleaning is a completely different trade from pressure washing requiring different pumps, plumbing, hoses, nozzles, valves, chemicals, caution, knowledge, experience and skills. Our certified RCIA roof cleaners have all of the necessary tools, and have learned from the best roof cleaning professionals in the country, plus we also work with the best bumping professionals to determine if there is an issue with your plumbing vent pipes.
Make sure you know what kind of chemicals are being applied on your property. Do not accept “it’s biodegradable” for an answer. Even uranium is biodegradable over 50,000 years or so.
Because many “competitors” lack our roof cleaning equipment, knowledge, training, and experience, they sometimes apply a dangerously strong chemical solution. Sodium Hydroxide and Potassium Hydroxide will dissolve the asphalt and tar on your roof, shortening the life of your shingles and voiding the roof’s warranty. Even sodium metasilicate is too corrosive.
Our chemicals do all of the work to remove streaks and discoloration from your roof and require no pressure or heavy rinsing. Because we do not have to rinse, your roof will stay cleaner longer than our competitors. Leaving the chemicals on the roof creates a roof treatment or a hostile environment for future algae growth. Each time it rains, a small amount of chemical is washed off to help re-clean your roof over and over again.
Concerned about your plants, pets, and landscaping?
We only spray the roof, not your plants. We always bag the ends of your downspouts, collect all the chemical run-off from the roof and dispose of them away from your landscaping. If the roof does not have gutters we will thoroughly dilute the chemical down to safe levels by spraying the landscaping with water before, during, and after applying chemical. After the chemical biodegrades and evaporates from the roof, the dried crystals and surfactant act as a roof treatment to keep the roof cleaner longer as it rains.
We have had to go behind many competitors who pressure wash or rinse their customers roofs, which start growing mold and streaks after only 1 year.
We guarantee our roof cleaning will outlast our competitors!
The price of cleaning your roof vs. replacing it, averages 1/10 the cost!
IT DOESN’T COST, IT PAYS TO CLEAN YOUR ROOF!
SAVE YOURSELF $$ THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS $$ !!!
