Description of Binding Agreement
These terms and conditions serve as a binding agreement between the property owner, hereby identified as “customer” and RoofMate and its owners, employees, and subcontractors, hereby identified as “company,” for the execution or services in exchange for payment for residential or commercial exterior cleaning services to include pressure washing and non-pressure washing. The services that RoofMate provide to you are subject to the following terms and we reserve the right to update the terms and conditions any time without notice to you. You can review the Terms and conditions by clicking on the Terms and conditions links via our website, email communications or any other communications such as quote or invoice links.
Customer agrees to allow company on the property for the purposes of completing cleaning services requested. Customer understands that the cleaning service will be completed in the time-frame given during the quotation. Due to unforeseen circumstances such as bad weather, the cleaning service may need to be moved to the next available business day. Customer understands that the company will do their best to accommodate for a quick reschedule but have to work around other scheduled customers and weather. Company also has the permission to visit the property with little or no notice to assess service needs prior to the date of service, as well as to check completion after services have been rendered.
Customer agrees to allow company to utilize their residential water source via outdoor supply, which will be turned on and easily accessible on the date of service. If on well water, or if in an area with low water pressure or volume, customer agrees to inform the company and will avoid using any water during the cleaning service. If customer's water source is not sufficient for cleaning service, they must inform the company so they can adequately prepare.
RoofMate does not require the homeowner’s power as our equipment is powered by our own systems or ran on petrol / diesel. We do require that all outside electrical outlets and fixtures are shut off before arrival to complete cleaning service. We only require access to your outdoor tap for water. Company members are to inspect any water supply prior to cleaning to ensure there is no damage to area and inspection after. Per their required training, they must take before and after photos. RoofMate will not be held accountable for previously damaged taps/hoses etc. Client will be informed of any previously noted damage. RoofMate will not be held accountable for any issues within or outside the home that is not related to the cleaning service.
Risks and Releases of Liability Acknowledgement
RoofMate technicians are well trained in the equipment used in the cleaning industry and take extreme precautions in making sure the company does not cause harm to your investment. RoofMate uses safe techniques with the use of low pressure on delicate surfaces such as wooden fascias, windows etc. However, damage can still occur to any delicate surface due to poor maintenance, neglect to the property and or low grade building materials. Routine maintenance per manufacture’s recommendations on the homes surfaces, should be implemented by homeowners to avoid any potential defects. Prior to cleaning the roof any areas of concern need to be addressed by the homeowner to insure a watertight seal. This will prevent damage from occurring. The homeowner assumes all the risks and takes responsibility for any damage that occurs due to improper maintenance.
On the date of service, the company will note any pre-existing damage and take photos of any noted damage. If any new damage is found during the cleaning process, the company will cease all cleaning efforts until the customer can see the damage and acknowledge its existence.
Customer understands that the company has set procedures to ensure plant life around the area of cleaning is protected. If any issues arise with plant life around the area of cleaning, the company will evaluate to see if plant life will recover or if it has been killed. Company will then determine plan of action after evaluation of plant life.
Roof Cleaning acknowledgement
Customer understands that any existing damage, cracked tiles, loose cement or any other flaws in the roofing system may be more noticeable and apparent during or after cleaning. RoofMate operatives will take photos where possible of any clearly visible damage prior to commencing the works. When the roof is covered with debris, those flaws may not stand out as much as it would be after it has been cleaned. Most of the time those issues are pointed out to the customer during pre-inspection or during cleaning process. Customer understands that the company may not find every flaw and is not reliable if it is more noticeable after cleaning unless it is found to be of negligence on company end. Customer also understands if we do a site unseen quote based off provided photos or use of google maps software, that we will not be able to note any flaws in exterior surfaces. If we do a site unseen quotation, customer understands we are not liable for any unacknowledged flaw and will do our best to point this out at date of cleaning. Customer understands that all of our operators have relevant roofing experience and knowledge, RoofMate's roof cleaning service includes limited minor repair work as stated in your quote, any repairs required beyond your quote will be noted to you and an on-site quotation will be given for the works or if customer prefers we can simply just give our expert advice. If Customer requires and confirms that RoofMate should carry out any additional work, we will endeavor to carry out such work on same day where possible, however we may have to schedule the works for the next available business day if necessary. Customer understands that although every precaution and effort is taken by our experienced operatives to leave the site clean and tidy (most cases left cleaner than when we started!) that some small reminiscence of the cleaning works may become apparent after completion of service, customer shall allow at least 14 days to allow weathering to take it's course and property should return to condition before the service. Customer understands that RoofMate operators are not "window cleaners" and although every effort is taken to ensure windows are left spotless that in some cases you may notice dried beads of water, it is the customer's responsibility to have windows cleaned by a third party if required unless RoofMate offers to compensate for this. Customer also understands that our roof treatment system is specifically designed for our cleaning services and it will not cause any discoloration or damage to the roof. Our treatment system will also not cause any harm or damage to the surrounding plant life, environment or wildlife. It should be noted that out treatment is harmful to fish and therefore customer shall notify us of any ponds, lakes, tanks etc. on the property so that we can adequately prepare and ensure no harm is caused. Customer understands that they must shut off all outside electrical outlets and fixtures prior to service.
On the Day of the Service:
Please have an outdoor water tap supply activated and accessible.
Please have all windows and doors shut tightly.
Please ensure you have shut off all outside electrical outlets and fixtures prior to arrival.
Please have all pets inside before and during cleaning.
Please clear the work areas of all items and remove all sensitive materials from the areas being cleaned such as flags, doormats, and vehicles. (we will do our best to assist moving plants, furniture etc. on day of service).
Please avoid using water during the cleaning service to ensure no loss of pressure or volume.
Please ensure you have notified any neighbours of the works so they are aware of noise, mess etc. on the day. We will ensure that any neighbouring property is left clean and tidy before we leave site.

If noticeably more than (10%) RoofMate will rectify at own cost.
- From year (8) eight to year (10) ten a small amount more of moss regrowth may or may not reappear, this shall be no more than (20%) of what was originally there before service. If noticeably more than (20%) RoofMate will rectify at own cost.
