Roof Cost in New Jersey | Replacement vs. Cleaning

The cost of a Roof Replacement in New Jersey is an important part to consider when compared to a Roof Cleaning. There are many reasons to replace your roof. For example, Missing Shingle tabs, Granule Loss due to Age or Defect, and Leaks in the roofing system. Another reason why roofs get replaced is because of Black Algae Roof Stains. We will discuss this later in the blog.

The average cost to replace an average asphalt roof is between 5,000 and 20,000 dollars depending on the size and pitch of the roof. Cedar and Slate roofs are an even higher cost but last much longer than asphalt. If you need to have plywood replace then the cost will go up as well. We always suggest that you have a Licensed and Insured Contractor complete the Roof Replacement. This will give you peace of mind after the work is done knowing that the work is backed by a warranty for workmanship from an actual company. As with any hiring process you should check the companies reputation before hiring them. See what type of reviews they have on sites like, and Angie’s List. All the aforementioned sites are free to belong to which allows anyone to write a review that is unbiased.

As mentioned in the first paragraph, consumers are replacing there roof due to Black Algae Roof Stains. This instance is where roof replacement is not the right answer. Replacing the roof because of roof stains adds trash to landfills that is unnecessary. If your roof is not leaking and the shingle tabs are in place and not missing then Roof Cleaning is the better option. A typical Roof Cleaning by a Licensed and Insured Professional Company should costs between 400-1600. There are many factors that go into the roof cleaning pricing such as how many stories and square footage of the roof, What type of pitch and What type of Roof System you have.

Diamond Roof Cleaning uses a soft wash technique to clean and remove black roof stains. With the use of specialty designed pumps and eco friendly cleaning solutions we can clean the roof without the use of pressure washers. We can also clean many steep roofs that other contractors cant because we do not have to get on the roof surface to perform our cleaning. We follow the ARMA ( asphalt Roofing Manufacture Association ) standard procedure on how to safely and properly clean a roof. They recommend against using power washing to clean the roof because it will remove and dislodge a lot of granules.

In conclusion before you go ahead and replace that roof prematurely for just being stained with algae give us a call and we will give you our up front opinion whether you just need a cleaning or if a replacement is in your best interest we will let you know with our free roof evaluation.

It was easy to get a quote and schedule the work. They came out and definitely did a great job of cleaning the house. It is the cleanest it ever was. My only issue is that two of the exhaust fan covers were blown off (?) and no one said anything about it before they left. I did not get the covers back so I assume they were taken away. I'm attaching a picture of one of them. If it was at least mentioned, then I would have given a 5 star review. -Changed to 5 Stars- This is a class A company to deal with. The owner came out and inspected the damage and issued a reimbursement. He also offered to do the installation which was more than I expected. They really do care that their customers are 100% satisfied!

This is the second time I’ve used Diamond Roof Cleaning to wash my stuccoed home. I’d heard horror stories from others who’d had their homes power washed and questioned the owner, Mike, who gave me addresses of homes similar to mine so I might see his work. I liked what I saw and took a chance with DRC. They did a fantastic job. The workers were friendly, respectful of my property by removing cushions from the patio chairs to keep from damaging/wetting them and answered any questions I had. Now my house looks brand new and I couldn’t be happier.

We recently completed our fourth job with Michael and The Diamond Roof Cleaning crew. This time was cleaning the house and detached garage roofs included. Another beautiful job which started punctually and did not take long to complete. The house is 45 years old with mostly original western red cedar, which comes up looking new when they’re complete. I had started, 4 years ago, to replace the western red cedar on the south and SW corner. The contractor rode by after that cleaning, 3 years ago, and thought I had someone else replace the cedar because it looked new. I’d recommend them to anyone (and have) wishing to clean their house, walls or patios. You won’t be disappointed, I’m surely not.

There are only positive remarks I can make about Diamond Roof. They did a whole house soft clean, washed the windows, and made our stone walkways and patio look like they did when put in 20 years ago. Really! The two gentlemen doing the work were wonderful, too. We had two windows with lots of algae on them and I noticed that they came back to them a few times to wash them over and over again. Would definitely hire them again!

We had the house, roof and gutters cleaned and could not be happier with the results. This is the 3rd time we have used this company and have had a great experience every time. They were on time, professional and make the house look 10x better than when we do it ourselves.
