Nothing’s more important to the durability of your home than a strong roof. It’s your number one defense against rain, snow, wind and the sun.
Roof maintenance is an essential part of caring for your home and making sure it’s strong enough to stand up against the elements. Your roof needs to be clean, sturdy and clear of buildup to remain durable for as many years as possible.
If you’ve noticed stains, marks or buildup on your roof, it’s time for a thorough cleaning. It’s time to call the professionals at Rip City Roof Cleaning.
Dirt and debris wear down your roof and put it at risk of a number of serious problems. Regular roof cleaning is the best defense against leaks, broken shingles, roof rot and moss growth.
The professionals at Rip City Roof Cleaning are trained to clean and treat your roof so that it’s protected all year. We will clean stains, remove debris and apply treatments that keep it looking its best.
With expert care from the Rip City Roof Cleaning team, you’ll know your roof–and your home–is in good hands.
Our list of cleaning services are comprehensive, and don't have to start or end with your roof. Even though roof cleaning and moss removal are our specialty, Rip City Roof Cleaning would be happy to pressure wash your driveway for a clean look or wash your siding and windows. One of the great benefits of Rip City Roof Cleaning is our ability to be a one stop solution for our customers and provide this wide range of services.
One of the things that can make your roof looked stained and dirty is black algae. Algae might only look like a dirty stain running down your shingles but it’s actually a living organism (technically a plant) that’s slowly hurting your roof.
Black algae grows on roof shingles when there’s limestone present in them. The algae feeds on the limestone and spreads across your roof. It can cause shingles to rot and eventually lead to leaks.
Moss has a similar effect, spreading across your roof wherever enough moisture is present. It’s especially problematic on parts of your roof that are usually in the shade, where sunlight can’t properly dry the shingles. This buildup can attract pests and, if left long enough, can force you to replace your roof entirely.
A clean roof makes your whole house look significantly better. It ups your curb appeal and even increases the property value of your home. Algae and dirt stains build up so gradually you might not notice they’re there until they’ve grown pretty large. Meanwhile, they’re damaging your roof and making future cleaning more difficult.
Treat your roof with the respect it deserves for protecting you year-round. With roof cleaning service from Rip City Roof Cleaning, your home will look sharp and be protected from serious roof damage. You’ll be happier every day under a clean, stain-free roof so get your roof cleaning scheduled today!

Rip City Roofing also provides professional moss removal services for your Portland home.
Moss retains moisture, which can freeze in cold weather and damage the coating on shingles. It wears down your roof more quickly than normal, shortening its lifespan and costing you significantly more money in the long run.
Moss typically starts growing between and underneath shingles, where the moisture allows it to thrive and spread. As it grows thicker, it can start to push up on shingles and create gaps that let in water. Then, your roof becomes vulnerable to leaks and serious wood rot.
The Rip City Roof Cleaning team uses soft washing techniques for moss removal that involve hosing and gently brushing moss off of shingles. This protects the shingles from further damage while effectively clearing moss buildup. Our moss removal team works patiently to clean all roofing materials and eliminate moss, algae and other plant growth.
Moss treatment is the final essential step in regular roof maintenance. Even after surface moss is removed, it can remain inside the crevices between shingles and continue to silently weaken your roof.
Complete moss treatment involves prevention; a comprehensive moss treatment solution provides an ongoing defense against moss growth. Moss treatment methods include installing zinc or copper strips along the top ridge of your roof and applying chemicals to eliminate moss growth.
These specialized chemicals are safe on roofs but deadly for moss and other damaging plants. It’s risky to try to apply moss treatments on your own. Don’t worry about handling chemicals and climbing on ladders yourself; call the Portland pros at Rip City Roof Cleaning to do the job for you.
Rip City Roof Cleaning prevents moss buildup and helps you avoid future problems by carefully applying a moss-killing treatment to keep your roof clean and looking its best. Our team is dedicated to providing safe, responsible moss treatments while protecting your lawn, landscaping and home from chemicals. Best of all, our specialized moss treatment continues to work long after we’ve left.
