    Hello! My name is Merrill. I've started a company - Veteran's Property Services in Massachusetts this year. I quickly realized that I should start washing roofs if I am going to be soft washing house. I'm here to learn as much as I can from the pros here. Thank you for all the information your sharing. Is there a particular page I can go to to start learning and become certified? Thanks again!
  6. Cedar shake recipe

    Late I know,...A few variables could be at play here,..and not sure how you made out (Yet?) Cedar can be a PITA,..many more variables than with a basic shingle roof,..How infested, access, condition,,....with that said,..a simple solution of NAOH mixed 50/50 with Sodium Percarbonate and NO SOAP,..will clean aged cedar very easily,..and then neutralize with approximately 8 OZ. per gallon Oxalic Acid. Cedar is worth every penny the guys doing it are getting. Jeff
  7. House wash / 3+ stories from the ground

    To get to 3 story, we can use a "shooter tip" with a 3' wand (see picture to top of chimney). This tip allows you to draw down stream solutions. Remove or turn off draw for rinse. If your equipment does not the power to reach or you need a bit more reach, buy an aluminum lance (~7' long and weights about 2 lbs). We also use 1 or 2 lances to reach 2 story ceilings / soffits with a 25 degree tip to get rid of wasp and mud dauber nests (southern US) - use caution depending on type of surface.

    I'm Mark Abelson owner of Sure Shot Stain and Seal. I'm a retired Marine and started Sure Shot several years ago as a fence staining business in the DFW area. Fence, pergola, garage door etc. restoration led to Pressure Washing and some roof cleaning. There is a need but not a big demand for it my area however, I have done several using my 12v system. I need to continue to learn so I can market the service more aggressively. In return I might be able to help out any members here that are interested in adding outdoor wood restoration to their bag of tools.

It has a Poly Body. Poly is not as good as Kynar, but even if you never rinse it, it will last awhile. At this price, 126.00 delivered, who really cares ? Use it till it breaks, then shit can it.

  23. Rebuild kit

    Hey guys been a long time since I posted here I need a rebuild kit for my yamada NDP 15 pump. I opened it up there 2 large white disc held together by a black nut. One disc was. Racked around the nut I assume I can get the disc with a rebuild kit. And there was a filter in there that was black and dirty is that filter necessary to keep in there trying to clean it up. My number is 4044569494 if you rather text or call me. Thanks in advance for any help. I cant seem to find a rebuild kit online any where and it seems to easy to fix for me to pay and send off and pay some one to fix.

    Hello everyone, My name is Kavon im a virgo and i like long walks on the beach... Oh wrong forum jk lol. I am the grandson of the owner of Brightside window cleaning in Fl. My grandfather has been in the window cleaning and pressure washing business for over 30 years and i have been working with him for the past 10 years. Although i am young (just turned 31) 10 years of experience in our field is like 10 years of school as most of my fellow professionals know. I have been following this forum for the past 6 months and have finally worked up the courage to join. Plan on going premium tomorrow. Over the years we have turned down thousands upon thousands of dollars of roof cleaning jobs just because "its not what we do". Well with my little family ive started i decided it was time to start expanding in the services we offer so i could better support my family. Im Very excited to learn all the secrets to soft washing and start cleaning roofs Thank you sooo much for creating this forum!
