This is a detached carport roof in the Soquel Hills. Don’t let this happen to you!

I always liked this photo. It probably means more to me than it can ever mean to you. We do the roof and gutters on this custom home each and every year in early spring. Each and every year when we drive up to this home, the roof always looks fairly clean. Until of course it gets cleaned.
Santa Cruz California
We clean a lot of roofs like this one. In most cases, the client calls and says that their homeowners insurance company won’t renew the policy until the roof gets cleaned off. I believe it is a fire hazard among other things.
This particular tile roof located off Felton Empire in Felton, CA was about as bad as I’ve ever seen. It was almost as if a landscape company came out and layed sod on this roof.
Pretty Ugly Indeed!
1800 PSI on this three year old flat to semi-pitched roof in Santa Cruz. This one story beach style home is situated beneath Eucalyptus trees. There are no gutters on this home…just spouts. The spouts(and there are several) begin as small holes within the “rubberized” roofing material itself. Most flat style homes use this design. Typically they are useless because if the roof is flat…..well then it’s flat. Water won’t run uphill and it won’t run without a hill. I know the roofing material companies these days claim these roofing materials are designed and built to hold standing water and debris etc.. I don’t doubt that whatsoever.. But what about the odor and infestation that begins to occur during that water and debris gathering process that, if left too long, can gag a maggot? Huh Mr. Roof Salesman?? Bottom Line..Do yourself and your neighbors a favor and keep it clean, or have someone keep it clean for you. We’ll leave a light on for you..
Most homeowners think their steep pitched roof that is covered in moss can’t be properly cleaned and restored. Have a look.
