Advice on cleaning roof


The guys who did our windows left a lot of saw dust and debris on our roofs. I was just wondering if anyone has any advice on how to clean it off. Should I just get up there as high as I can go and spray water downward or to the side?

Advice on cleaning roof


I would call the installers back out to clean, did you pay them yet. That is unacceptable.

We did pay them already unfortunately. My wife didn't notice the debris at the time when she did a walkaround. Fortunately, however, this window company relies on it's outstanding reviews online (mostly homestars.com) to get business so I'm sure they would not want a poor review to damage their reputation. I haven't written a review yet so I still have that weapon in my arsenal. I just sent them an email with the picture and I'll see what they say.

Advice on cleaning roof


thats unacceptable work. a soft broom will work fine, as long as the sawdust isnt wet.hosing it off will work if you cant stand up there, but dont use a pressure washer lol, dont want to tear off the granules of the shingles or unseal them

I would call the company to take care of it though, you pay them for the job and jobs include disposal and clean up. Even if its not in the contract, its just the right thing to clean up after yourself. unprofessional.... sigh*

The window company owner emailed me back and said he is going to talk to the window installer and take care of it right away. He apologized for the inconvenience. I hope they don't pressure wash it.

Thats good. Should be able to be brushed off quite easily. Any power washing or scrapping of the shingles can remove the granules.
