    Roof Cleaning Cape Cod and Massachusetts
    A to Z Softwash is the most experienced roof cleaning company servicing Cape Cod, Southern mass, Rhode island, Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. All roof are cleaned without using a pressure washer!
    Growths such as lichen, moss, fungi, bacteria and algae are on most roofs these days. The first growth that shows its ugly head is typically bacteria (black streaks). Once this growths takes hold it will colonize and spread rapidly. Just like every other living thing, as it eats it excretes waste. This waste product is a food for other things..... such as moss and lichen! That is why when you see lichen in Southern Mass and Cape Cod it is usually growing right on top of the bacteria. It's an Algae party and your roof was invited.
    The only appropriate course of action is to hire your local roof cleaning company in Massachusetts that uses the proper methods. Which is of course a non pressure cleaning using the detergents that the shingle manufacturers recommend. Pressure washing, roof scrubbing and low pressure are terms and things you need to watch out for as those methods will damage your shingles. Another tip would be for you to ask for a copy of there insurance policy to be sure that you will be covered if god forbid something does go wrong.
    Asphalt shingles and cedar shingle roofs are going to have a short lifespan if they aren't clean, this is a fact. Insurance companies are even making people clean their roofs more and more. They are doing this because algae is costing them money!
    I haven't even mentioned the fact that dirty roofs are (forgive me for saying it) ugly. Take a look at some of our work below to see for yourself.

    Cape Cod Cedar Roof Cleaning
    Cedar roofs and shingles are generally porous in that it is easy for algae, moss and lichen to plant there root like connectors. Once they do this it can be very difficult to remove them without causing damage! The best solution is to maintain your siding properly from day one, which would mean have the wood cleaned and conditioned every 2-3 years so that the wood always stays in tip top condition. This can be impossible for some and others may even buy a home and inherit a building envelope that has not been properly cared for. If this is the case the wood may be very tender due to the various growths causing over saturation of the wood. Since most cedar in Massachusetts is not brand new any more it needs to be maintained professionally by a company that knows how to get the job done without causing any damage. It's best to hire a Cedar roof cleaning company that uses a Softwash (non pressure) method.
    A to Z Softwash cleans cedar literally everyday, cleaning on average 1 cedar roof every week and cedar siding every day. We come across homes that the sidewall is literally green with algae growth. Some homes have tons of orange fungi growth along the bottom foot, and we can take care of that too. We know how to maintain the cedar on your home without using a pressure washer, we also offer a wood conditioner to help block UV degradation. The homes below show typical results and are what you can expect when you call your local professional. A to Z Softwash 508-209-7795 Your local cedar shingle cleaning professionals

    Flexzilla is nice, we even got our Water Fed Pole 3/8 hose in green so it matches. Who says Roof Cleaners can't have a little style?
  17. h2o spray added a post in a topic PWP Pressure Washer Products ROCKS! Highly Recommended Review   

    I agree 100%! Lori is INCREDIBLE. I have used other suppliers in the past that ALL advertise their customer service is the best. I actually believed a few of them until dealing with Lori . Lori & PWP set the example for impeccable  customer service. When I am at a clients home either cleaning a roof, washing a home, cement or whatever services they have requested I always go above and beyond for each and every client, so when I am the client as in purchasing equipment/supplies I would like the same level of customer service I offer to be offered to me, well it never return calls, countless promises ,closed when you really need them,  don't have item with no option given, slow shipping, high prices. NOT true with Lori & PWP. She has taken calls, answered questions, offered advice, super fast shipping, suggested options ALL THE TIME , ANYTIME!  (I would not be disrespectful contacting at questionable hours)That is how IMO a supplier should be, helpful and there for you when you really need them, not just 9-5 M-F. And Lori has a GREAT personality. Strait forward to the point and all business. I only wish I had contacted PWP earlier. Thanks Lori & PWP, you ROCK!

  19. ReNew Roof & Exterior cleaning added a post in a topic New Water Hose ??????   

    I tried the expanding hose route and they all failed quickly. One thing about the flex hoses is the connector ends (swivels) have a very small throat, like 3/8". Not very good flow.
  20. ReNew Roof & Exterior cleaning added a post in a topic New Water Hose ??????   

    Ive been using Flexzilla for 3 years, same hose. Works awesome. Its lightweight and tough. Love it. 
  21. Apple Roof Cleaning (813) 655-8777 added a post in a topic New Water Hose ??????   

    That Ely hose, or whatever it is called didn't work out very well, our guys dont like it.
    Yes, The Flexilla looks good.
    We will see what the deal is on the expanding hose
  22. PeakOfPerfection added a post in a topic New Water Hose ??????   

    We have likewise switched to Flexzilla and it is holding up beautifully. Starting to see fluorescent green in pictures from other contractors in the industry as well. 
    And yes, it IS available in 3/4". 
  23. A to Z Softwash added a post in a topic New Water Hose ??????   

    We have been using the flexzilla hose, I bought it at Tractor Supply. It's working out great for us.
  24. Bergman Roof Cleaning added a post in a topic New Water Hose ??????   

    I hope it works well for you Chris!
    Unfortunately I just did a job this month and the home had te same one attacked already, so I tried to use it. Even though it looked new, it leaked at the hose to male connector-not the O-ring. It didn't look like you could do a hose fitting on the material-but maybe? Hopefully, that was just a bad one. It looks like the same material as the "Expandable Hose on TV"
