6 Important Questions to Ask Your Roof Cleaner
Your roof is an investment in your home, so make sure you are choosing the best roof cleaner for the job. High-pressure pressure washing devices, toxic chemicals and walking on your roof wrong, can all damage your roof and reduce it’s lifespan. In addition, while it is always smart to get several bids on a roof cleaning job, remember that the lowest bid is not always the best. An unreliable roof cleaner might cut costs by hiring inexperienced workers, not carrying insurance or using the quickest (not the safest and most effective) way to get the job done. Price, however, is only one factor to consider when choosing a roof cleaner. Knowing the important questions to ask will help you find the best one.
One of the biggest differences between a true professional pressure wash roof cleaning company and a fly-by-night operation is the ability to handle the liabilities of the risks it assumes.

Always make sure the contractor you hire is licensed, insured and bonded. Unlicensed contractors rarely have liability insurance are exempt from workers comp insurance and not bonded , and while they may be a few bucks cheaper it can end up costing you tens to hundreds of thousands in the long run. Without a license, proper insurance and bond, you have no guarantee any potential grievance will be resolved. Worse, if serious injury occurs, the homeowner or business who hired the contractor is liable.
