    Moss On old shingles

    From what I have read you have to hit it with a strong roof mix and let it dewell ... and when the moss dies the rain should wash all the moss out ,, don’t quote me on it I am a newbie too.. and when I mean dewell I mean for a couple days , make sure no rain in the forecast ..

    Trying to finish one tomorrow that I couldn't get on Friday. Took forever just to do a couple sides because there was zero sun and cool and windy. That one seriously frustrated me! Also it's glazed tile, so not being porous it won't absorb the SH. I'm having to kill layer by layer and it's super dirty.

    I don't envy roofs that look like that! However, you wouldn't envy standing on a roof down here in Florida in the middle of August! Welcome.

    Hello All, I am in Central Arkansas, and a friend and I would like to start a “Curb Appeal” business. I am getting into real estate, and early on I have stumbled upon conversations about soft washing capabilities and it would seem most of the population here is unaware of the product/results. But, I am worried about the risks! I have heard that a “proper” soft wash solution (3:7 or 2:3 of 12.5%) will scorch a lawn and flowerbed. I can respect that with fast results should come proper care and preparation. I’ve also heard that the only tried and true method to prevent that is to have a 2nd guy spraying. Well, we would only have one. I know I mentioned the pair of us were starting this venture, but I have a job I need to maintain to keep the marketing going (which I am confident about). And, we have no desire to hire a 3rd employee. So, The question is this: If one guy goes out to soft wash a single story home with moderate plant life around, AND NO WATER GUY, are we asking for trouble? I would hate to make money on 9 homes and then lose it all on the 10th. Or, am I overthinking it? We also want to do concrete, there are a lot of large driveways around here, but there are small areas as well. 8gpm and 36” too much of an investment? Our wish list is the following: 6x12 enclosed trailer, 8gpm 3500 psi Pro, X-Jet, Bandit Roof System, 36” Whisper, 225 gal container, 50 gal container. My measurements say that will fit, but maybe some of you know from experience that it will not. Is training for this kind of thing a waste of money? Thank you for any input, Mike Z - Little Rock

    As long as your SH is fresh, and you have some Sun, you are good to go. Even if it is cloudy, it will just take longer

    Money is money, and sometimes we have to make it in cold w`eather. We had to bid a big tile roof kind of low, and the day it was scheduled on, it was 45 degrees So, we told the customer we needed to reschedule for a warmer day. He was ok with it

    Lichen is rampant up here in Charlestown New Hampshire. Small immature lichen growths can be removed easily with little to no damabe to asphalt shingles with a high volume rinse.
