    Join the RCAI....not
    This is too rich.....not only did they try and co-opt the RCIA name....but they have some hilarious content. 
     
    Strangely.....I was just making fun of AC's bio-hazard uniform, warning about the mixed signals and here's an example of exactly my point.
     
    www.aok.org/rcai/chlorine-cleaning.htm (don't hyperlink)
     
    "liquid chlorine bleach sprayed on a roof in an effort to remove roof stains contains is the same noxious fumes that was used in World War 1 to maim and kill enemy soldiers. Chlorine gas was first introduced as a weapon on April 22, 1915 at Ypres Belgium by the German Army"
     
    Ummmm....people wash clothes with it, swim in it, drink it?
     
     
     
    Funny reading.....A full page of lies....sprinkled with exaggerations and garnished with BS.....plus a pic of SoftWash Snake Oil himself.

    You guys up North will be faced with everyone  cleaning roofs one day, just like we are. But neither of you need worry.
    You both do great non pressure roof cleaning for a fair price. You will always have lots of work!

    Non pressure roof cleaning is always the way to go, as this  poor customer found out the hard way!

    An other example of how NOT to clean a roof
    I was on Angie's List reading customer reviews of roof cleaning companies. I came across this customer review which once again illustrates the wrong way to clean a roof. Out of respect I will not mention the company name. I am not so interested in speaking out against a company but do want to speak out against a bad practice.


    Customer quote:

    "I wasn’t too pleased with the service. They cleaned the roof. Instead of spraying something onto it to clean they used a power washer and left a mess behind on the back of the house. They knocked off the pebbles that were on the roofing squares and they are still coming down the gutters.  I have had to clean off my patio deck and the furniture from the pebbles."


    This customer is concerned about the mess due to the dislodged granules "pebbles" from the asphalt shingles caused by the damaging water pressure of the power washer. Unfortunately this customer now has much bigger concerns which include a shortened life span of the shingles, a shingle warranty that is now void and increased utility bills since the shingles ability to reflect the suns energy has been compromised. All caused by power washing.

     
    All this damage could have easily been prevented if the contractor used a soft wash process. The need to educate homeowners cannot be stressed enough about the importance of selecting only roof cleaning professionals trained and certified by the Roof Cleaning Institute of America in the art of low-pressure soft wash cleaning and restoration.

    I don't see how its SEO gold? It may be better for a homeowner to find easily but either way the spiders will crawl through it whether its 1st or 25th on the list.
    If I am wrong please correct me.

    I am with Godaddy and have not had a single issue in over 3 years. Plus they are available by phone 24/7.
    My hosting is less than $40 a year. Which in the long run is nothing but a drop in the bucket. ymmv

      I have had horrible service through bluehost.  Some of their techs are complete morons.  I blame them for killing my first site.  Another time with bluehost I went from one hosting plan to another plan they had.  I was on the phone for over 8 hours and my site was down for about a week.

    Zack is right, a short season up here is a draw back, but not sure if i would trade it for the heat of Florida in the summer or a roof cleaner on every corner.

    Not a huge fan of Bluehost....they are better than GoDaddy though. I've had issues working with clients on bluehost and their tier 1 support people seem a bit weak
     
    I was with hostgator for 5 years before buying my first server. I tried to work out a deal with them but they wanted a fortune for additional IP's.
  16. Roof Cleaning Contractors added a post in a topic Fully Set Up Wordpress For Cheap!   

    $2.85 is a very good deal...but you are still on a shared IP with hundreds or thousands.
     
    On my primary server Contractor Hosting, I offer shared hosting at $5 per month but very low domains per IP. For $110 yr I offer dedicated IP's and 5 addon domains.This is really good for those building multiple sites for different services.
     
    On another server, I'm at $3.25 but I can vary IP addresses.....this is known as a SEO server. Unique IP's are important for backlink value. I personally use this server when I'm building a tiered SEO plan since Google would devalue links from the same class c subnet.
     
    Wordpress has always been free as are most of the plugins.
     
    As for installation....most decent hosts offer automatic install (fantastico, Softaculous, etc).
