Our "Safe Wash" Approach

Aptos' Original Roof Cleaning Professionals

Aptos is home to the historic Aptos Village, as well as the gateway to the Forest of Nisene Marks State Park. Here you’ll find hikers, runners, and mountain bikers enjoying the 30 miles of trails throughout the forested area. 

If you live or work in Aptos, you likely love the outdoors – but you also know that they can cause wear and tear on your property. The nearby beach, as well as the foliage of the area, can make your building’s roof look grimy and unattractive. 

Allow Pacific Exterior to help. We’re proud to be the Bay Area’s original non-pressure exterior cleaning company. As locals ourselves, we know how to best treat and preserve your roof to keep it looking like new for years to come. 

All of our technicians are trained to use safe low-pressure washers to professionally remove contaminants from roofs. We’re also NRCIA-certified and abide by the latest national and international regulations. When you partner with us, you can trust that your roof is in good hands. 

We’ve offered roof cleaning in Aptos, CA, for years, and we plan to continue doing so for many decades. Your satisfaction is our top priority, as is the safety and preservation of your home or business.

Serving Aptos Since 2010

We are Northern California’s original non-pressure cleaning professionals and have pioneered advanced, safe, cleaning techniques since 2010. As an NRCIA certified roof inspector and building contractor, with decades of experience, we have inspected and installed all the materials that we now clean and restore.

Our work has been featured multiple times in international trade magazines. In January of 2014, an article we authored on bacterial growth patterns in building exteriors was released in ‘eclean’ magazine. This article was a direct result of the study of bacterial growth in Monterey Bay’s unique climate.

Our article, “Bacterial Stud Striping” continues to be the only information available on the subject. The best solution to this local issue is our innovative “Safe Wash” method, not high pressure.

What Our Clients Have to Say

Genuine, friendly, professional, experienced and absolutely
committed to customer satisfaction, BBB A+ Rating for 12 years straight…

Excellent 5.0 Star rating based on Google, Yelp, BBB and Yahoo reviews.

Eric came to our house just to do an assessment of our flat top roof. There was 2" of water pooled in many areas, and he actually took the time to clear the drains and sweep the roof for us right then and there. We really appreciate that he stayed to do that and will definitely call him again when needed. 5 stars, for sure!!

We had delayed cleaning our tile roof and stucco home, so it was in pretty poor shape. Pacific Exteriors did a really nice job, and the folks who worked on our house were professional. Covid aware, and very hard working. The whole process was easy and no pressure.

Eric was prompt with his response and scheduling the walkthrough. He has a wealth of knowledge with all aspects of roofing and cleaning methods. Our 35+-year-old roof was obscured by bacteria, mold, dirt, and moss. Now it gleams and looks consistent and safe for our upcoming ridgelite replacement. Eric even inspected and advised on methods to address the ridgelite leaks. Very relaxed with customers and aggressive with providing a quality solution to our roof. Excellent resource and service!

Such quality service! We had a twelve-year-old roof that looked terrible, and now it looks like new! I would recommend you and your team to everyone we know! Reliable, friendly, fantastic customer service.

The knowledge and expertise Eric has in the field of micro-organism, and algae removal are, without a doubt, the best I have seen in years. I have referred clients to him several times, and each time he has restored their roof systems back to their original state without incident. My clients have been nothing but full of praise for his knowledge and ability to perform the projects in a safe and professional manner. I would recommend Eric again.

I forwarded your information to several friends and told them what a great job you did for us. Thank you very much.

Thank you so much for the great job on cleaning our tile roof.  Also, we appreciate having a four-year guarantee and knowing the proper terminology for the bacteria.  It will be helpful to know for future reference and maintenance.  I am sure that the after photos will provide you with more opportunities and a growth in your client list!  Thanks again.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. Cleaning your roof can save you money in more ways than one...

  • First, the algae and fungus that grow can cause premature roof granule loss, and shorten roof shingle life. So you save money because your roof lasts longer
  • Second, when the algae turn your roof black, it becomes less reflective, and it retains heat; If you use an air conditioner it has to work harder to overcome the increased heat load, costing money in electric bills.
  • Third, the aesthetics of cleaning your roof when it comes to selling your home can not only save you money but can make you money too.

It would be appreciated if you could do a few things the night before we come out to do the roof cleaning service:

  • Move all lawn equipment, furniture, and/or toys inside or away from the building.
  • Keep all animals inside or out away from the home.
  • Put any special plants out away from the house (if possible.)
  • Park vehicles on street or in the garage.

Pretty much just clear everything out away from around the house. We will be rinsing areas around the building during the treatment.

We almost exclusively use equipment no louder than a whisper. Occasionally we use a compressor for large commercial projects.
