    What method of credit card payments are you using today? Do you use the cube, hand a portable device to the customer to enter their info, invoice them a link, etc? Is it synchronized with your accounting software such as Quick Books? What seems to work best for you? Currently, we use PayPal but more and more customers just prefer to give us a credit card and be done with it. What are your recommendations?

    Brown rot fungus, commonly known as “dry rot,” presents itself as a black or dirt brown color. It commonly causes the wood to be dry and fragile, cracking across the grain. It is dangerous because it rapidly decays the cellulose and hemicellulose in the shingles, leaving a brown residue of lignin (the substance that holds the wood cells together). Brown rot is generally more serious than white rot, as it can quickly weaken the shingle before any visible signs are detected.   If left untreated, the shingles will easily crumble into cubes, and turn into a powder when crushed.
    Moss, which is appears green and spongy retains constant moisture on the cedar shake. Furthermore, it does not permit the red cedar to breathe as it should. This causes the cedar shake wood to deteriorate rapidly.
    Be sure to periodically examine your cedar siding and cedar shake roof for the aforementioned colors. If you see any of them and suspect you may need a siding cleaner or roof cleaner contractor, be sure to contact a professional roofing and siding cleaner. The longer you put it off, the more damage will incur resulting in more costs to you.  To read more, go here.

    Hey guys,
    I have a KURI TEC Kuriyama Spray hose 200' X 1/2" ID  K413112200 and it's time to replace it due to wear and age. I like the hose and it held up quite well. But before I purchase a new one, does any have recommendations? We operate a 12V pump.

    The next time you are outside, take a good look at your siding. Do you see green and black discoloration? That discoloration is actually algae, mildew and mold! They release air borne spores into the air. That is how they got there to begin with. Those organisms are alive and it can create an unhealthy environment for your family and pets, not to mention they are destroying the appeal of your property.  We are seeing more and more of this in Cicero and surrounding communities in Cook and other collar counties.
    The good news is that these invaders can be safely removed by a process called soft washing. Go here to read the rest of the story.

    I contacted Hannay and this is what they stated. "Because you have an 1 ½” pass through hub we have no other way to manufacture the reel than what you have. The smaller reels for ½” hose can are equipped with the true direct crank rewind."

    I found a very nice app called Easy Map Maker. I used it to create a map of all the jobs we have done. You can color code the pins according to say, type of roof. You can filter the different color pins. You can save it on line to later edit. It's used to visually see where your more profitable areas are. And best of all, it's free.

    Cedar Roof and Siding Cleaning in Elgin, Kane County Illinois

    The owners of this house were almost convinced that their cedar shake roof was beyond cleaning and would need to be replaced. Unfortunately most people don’t realize cedar shake roofs, as well as siding, needs to be periodically cleaned.  A properly maintained cedar roof will last at least forty years. The cedar shingles had dark gray, black and greenish colors.  The green spongy organisms that were growing on the cedar roof were moss. These are signs that the roof was overdue for a cleaning.
