    I got this in an email, asking me to advertise my roof cleaning company on plastic bags given out at this Pharmacy.

    Once, I bought advertising on the shit house walls. Seriously, a guy I met at the local chamber of commerce sold nice color ads that went inside the shithouse toilet stalls. When I met him, he said he had a shitty deal on advertising, LOL This was 20 + years ago, before cell phones took off, when taking a shit was quite boring. Now, with cell phones, I doubt it would work, but it actually worked quite well for us, more then paid for itself

    Welcome Tony! I would say that over 95% of people learned on the job, and never attended any school.

    Nice of you to pass a roof cleaning lead on, that is out of your area. Michigan is my home state, born in Detroit, raised in Warren and Hazel Park. Caught a Muskie in the St Clair River down in Algonac. Been to Port Huron quite a bit.
  12. Defective Dura Lock Stone Coated Steel Roof !

    Contact Gerard, their contact info is at the start of this thread. It is not your fault, but the condo association does not know that.
  13. Defective Dura Lock Stone Coated Steel Roof !

    We were contracted to clean a stone coated steel type roof here locally. No pressure washing was used to clean this roof, because we all know what pressure can do to a roof. Besides, we don't even own a pressure washer! The cleaning solution for this was the cleaning solution we have used on hundreds of Gerard, Decra, and other stone coated steel roofs. We have never had a problem like this. In fact, our cleaning solution is the same as the suggested solution on the companies own website! We came along, and did our job, but it revealed this, pre existing damage that was hiddden to us by the black algae that covered this roof. The homeowner seemed happy when we left, and wrote us a 1200 dollar check for our services. He then stopped payment on it. I contacted the company that bought out Dura Lock, and was informed that these Dura Lock Stone Coated Steel roofs were a big problem. He informed me that there are plenty of lawsuits and class action lawsuits against Dura Lock. Guys, as a teacher of roof cleaning, i tell you to BEWARE of any Dura Lock roof! Modern Stone Coated Steel Roofs seem to be holding up fine, but if a customer tells you they have a Dura Lock Stone Coated Steel Roof, think again before you clean it!! You might get blamed like we just did for a roof that has been proven to fail. The black algae might cover the loss of granules, and when you come along and clean it, you will become "the bad guy"! You can see in these pictures sent to us by the homeowner of this Dura Lock Roof that there is granule loss, and you can see it (the red granules) in the grass. This damage was pre existing, and Dura Lock roofs it turns out were well known for this! You can also see this granule loss, on the roof itself. You can also see we did not cause this, or the entire roof would be losing granules, since our cleaning solution touched every tile on this roof! Even though this homeowner stopped payment to us, he still demanded to know who our Insurance Company was, and has already contacted them. Here are the pictures guys
  14. 17 GPM ALL-FLO Air Diaphragm Pump is NOT like the others!

    If you are using that much line and doing 2 story roofs, you will want to be sure to have at least 5/8 diameter hose.
  15. What is SH ?

    SH is very much like Bread, it is always best when fresh.
  16. North Tampa Tile Roof Cleaning 33647

    Here is a barrel tile roof we cleaned a few weeks ago. This home is located in the North Tampa area, in zip code 33647. We did this job nearly 6 years ago, but the customer is selling this home, and wanted his tile roof to look brand new again. This is a very exclusive area of Tampa! In fact, this area is full of football players!
  17. Securing Equipment

    We use dedicated straps screwed into the bed of the truck flatbed
  18. What is SH ?

    SH always means Sodium Hypochlorite - Good Question BTW !
  19. Hello Everyone

    Back before there were any proportioning devices in this Industry, I have a crude but effective system based on using Pinch Valves that go OVER the tubing, like these https://flow-rite.com/fluid-handling/needle-pinch-valves
  20. Hello Everyone

    Why the fuk would you want a 50/50 mixture, unless you are softwashing dirty driveways ? 50/50 is way too strong, for all but the dirtiest tile roofs. There are several devices sold that allow you to adjust your mix. Have you considered any of them ?
  21. Hello Everyone

    You are best off to think about getting a dedicated roof cleaning pump my friend

    LOL, that stuff is mostly Water, look at the small percentages of the Ingredients. What do you feel you have to gain by using it ?
