Offering Premier Roof & Exteriors Cleaning Services to Oregonians
Referred Roof Cleaning & Exteriors was founded in 2011 under the original name of Eagle Roof Cleaning by Jaffet J. Jefferson as a way to help pay for his college tuition costs at the University of Oregon.
Within the first year, he hired his first employee, established an office location, and landed his first commercial job. By the end of year two, Jaffet added his second crew, expanded his network through local chamber involvement, and expanded his list of services.
In March of 2013, Jaffet brought on a business partner, Chris Champagna, then owner of Willamette Valley Landscape. As part of this new partnership, the business name changed to Oregon Roof Cleaning with the vision of expanding to multiple cities across the great state of Oregon.
The company grew quickly, purchasing its first warehouse, adding an office manager, forming multiple crews, offering pressure washing, exterior cleaning, and roof cleaning services in Salem and 10 other cities, opening its second location in Portland, and tackling multiple large scale commercial projects throughout Oregon, all while continuing to steadily build its residential client base.
Then, in early 2015, Jaffet decided to take a break from the roof cleaning business to search out other interests. During that break, he realized this was indeed his true passion and began rebuilding the business in late 2016, leading to Referred Roof Cleaning, now Salem’s top pressure washing and roof cleaning company, officially re-launching in early 2017.
For the full first year of re-launching, the owner, Jaffet Jefferson primarily did all the jobs, building back up a client list.
In 2018 he hired his first employee for the Salem market and got a second truck. That same year Referred Roof Cleaning partnered with Marcano Roofing in Salem as a referral partner for new roofs and major repairs.
In 2019 RRC brought on truck #3 and continued growing the business steadily, expanding into Portland with a Satellite branch.
During the early days of the pandemic, RRC was considered a necessary business and was allowed to continue operating. The business nearly doubled that year and RRC began the search for a larger location to handle the growth.
In March of 2021 RRC moved to its current location at 1210 Madrona Ave SE Salem. This new location gave RRC the ability to bring in a few more employees and added multiple additional trucks to the team.
Throughout 2022 RRC focused on shoring up policies and best practices in an effort to improve the customer experience. RRC also launched its online bidding process to give customers quick and easy pricing.
RRC Partnered with Bright Green Roof as a distributor to provide an organic roof regeneration spray which prevents shingle deterioration for 5 years per application. The team at RRC reached 9 employees and 7 trucks in operation during 2023.
