Years of build-up can really create an unsightly mess on your roof. Removing debris, dirt, mold, algae, moss and staining from your roof is a popular maintenance service that we offer. Our experience & cleaning supplies, including special chemicals and detergents, will work perfectly to remove dirt & grime from your roof without incurring bleaching or discoloration.
Organisms like algae can actually feed on the components of roof shingles and shorten the useful life of your roof, so if you notice staining on your shingles, it is time to call us for a cleaning. Moss and dirt also attract insects that may invite themselves inside your home, which is why a good roof cleaning should be added to your yearly house maintenance.
A clean roof can prevent many common problems and will make your roof shine like it did when it was brand new.
Deck Cleaning and Preparation for Deck Staining or Deck Painting
Wood decks lose their resilience and ability to shed water as they age. The natural wood color turns grey and looks dull & worn out. A good pressure wash can help restore the wood closer to its original appearance, and a good coat of waterproofing sealant or colored stain will protect your deck for years to come.
Our crew uses a deck cleaning & restoration method that deep cleans the wood to remove all dirt & stains. We work diligently to remove mold, algae, and other harmful microorganisms to ensure that the new stains & sealers will adhere correctly and look amazing. Bring life back into your faded or weather-worn deck with our deck cleaning & maintenance services. We recommend applying a new coat of stain every three years to enhance the natural beauty of the wood and keep it looking brand new.
Check out this wonderful example of a “Before & After” deck refinishing service. A quick power wash & sealant can brighten a dull & drab deck, refreshing your backyard oasis and outdoor living space!

Pressure Washing – Power Washing
Our licensed and insured crews are ready to tackle that dirty job of power washing that will bring your property back into ship-shape! Stubborn stains from oil, rust, mildew, and mold are all treatable with proper chemical rinses and power washing. Results are truly amazing, and homeowners feel like they have replaced the surface, not just cleaned it, because it actually looks brand new when our power washing crew is done.
Using both professional equipment and personnel, you can be sure that we won’t be just giving your home, driveway, boat or roof a quick rinse – we will be cleaning it! Depending on what the application calls for, we may use chemical rinses or detergents combined with low-pressure or high-intensity pressure washing.
If you are hiring Franklin Painting for exterior house painting we may recommend a thorough power washing first to assure good adhesion of the new coat of paint. This is essential if you have mildew or environmental build-up of any kind on the surface of your exterior walls, shutters and trim.
Our power washing skills and equipment can be put to use on many projects such as:
• Exterior Home Pressure Washing – aluminum, vinyl, wood, stone or brick siding
• Patio and Deck Pressure Washing
• Fence Pressure Washing
• Driveway Pressure Washing
• Walkway Pressure Washing
• RV and Bus Pressure Washing
• Boat Pressure Washing
Maintaining your gutters so that they are in proper working order is critically important to your home’s value. Prevent costly roof and gutter damage by making sure that your gutters and downspouts are clean and flowing correctly. Small animals like squirrels along with bees, ants and other insects can create blockages by the nests they build in downspouts throughout the dry season. This can clog your downspouts even if they gutters appear clean along your roofline.
Leaves and branches pose series problems for gutters on Connecticut homes. Seasonal changes and wind bring debris down on your roof and the leaves & twigs end up settling in the bottom of your gutters.
When gutters clog, water & rain cannot properly flow off of your roof. Instead, water may start seeping into your roof structure, causing rot and damage that can be extremely costly to repair. Gutters clogged with dry leaves and twigs may actually cause a house fire if a stray, burning ember from your chimney escapes and settles on the dry kindling.
If a buildup of debris has settled in your gutters, water may begin to back up inside of the gutter channel and freeze during cold, winter nights. This can expand your gutter or even dislodge it from the roofline, causing serious damage.
Late fall is the best time to call us to schedule your gutter cleaning. It is necessary to remove any buildup leaves & debris before the temperatures drop below freezing. Winter can also bring debris & blockages to your gutters, so a quick examination in early spring can help you determine if a gutter cleaning is necessary. If you are unsure of the current condition of your gutters, contact us for assistance.
We offer window cleaning in conjunction with other services like exterior house painting or staining or pressure washing. As we access the exterior aspects of your home for painting, priming, and site prep, we can gladly add on a window cleaning service to bring the sparkle back to your home’s windows.
