I go to walmart and get the Ben Hogan golf shorts in khaki color. They look "nice" and they wear pretty darn well. They don't bleach, but I have noticed some spots where the material was lightened but it's barely noticeable and goes away with age. For flimsy golf shorts, they hold up pretty good. I took a slide on the backside on asphalt shingles with them and they survived mostly intact. They also dry pretty quick, and that helps a lot in this business!
They use YOU to help their site gain a bigger foothold in the search engines so THEY can swipe the leads, then sell them to YOU and five other contractors. You end up literally paying them to compete with you for leads. They make you help their SEO so they can dominate your market, lol.
They sell a lot of fake leads, and have a terrible reputation for it. I'm a contractor who has been personally ripped off by "service magic", their old name. Look at reviews around the net. They are just a bunch of bottom feeding scammers if you ask me, so please don't help them screw other contractors!
Sorry, I was away. That is the message I get when I click the "Blog" link on the navigation bar at the top of the site. Usually it takes me over to the blogs. I knew that propowerwash.com was PWI. That's part of what is so confusing here! The link address is in the screenshot roofcleaninginstitute.org/blogs
I might just find myself going for the Hannay. I know I'm going to switch soon. I just hope it's not forced on me sooner than I would like, lol. I have a few other things I need to get sorted with my rig before then. I look at this as a one time purchase, unlike some other reels I've had.
I did not know that E3 guaranteed they wouldn't bleach out. Mine are starting to bleach out after a year or year and a half. They are starting to wear pretty good at this point also. I really love my shirts, and we get a lot of compliments. One of my biggest gripes isn't so much the bleaching, they fade slowly over time, it's the fabric snagging and getting runs in it. This is just one thing to look out for. Overall they are great shirts, I got mine at E3 and I plan to get more this year also.
Great post Chris, I just saw this today. Here's what we wear. Khaki golf shorts from Wal-mart. Can't remember the brand, but they're cheap. They don't bleach out, and they're thin and light. They are polyester, so they dry quickly and they keep you cool because they're not heavy material weighing you down. They have pockets front and back like regular shorts, and they actually last a long time. They have the bonus of looking clean and professional, and they wash up nicely. I've slid a couple roofs on the behind, and it washed right out. That said, they will tear if you really go sliding in them. For all we've put them through the past two years, they are great. Way better than anything else we've worn. For shirts, I like the dye sumblimated ones. We get a lot of compliments and requests because of them. Of course, ours aren't super cheesy looking either. The one caveat with these is the colors wear over time. It takes a while, but after a year the color loss is significant. It just kind of fades and lightens from the chems. It's worse if you wash a lot of houses, which we do. The shirts are also polyester, so they dry fast and let the breeze through. I noticed what you said about gray shirts. They simply don't bleach for some reason. We had gray shirts for a while, but the cotton once soaked is so heavy and oppressive! Until I went with polyester, the gray ones were the only thing we found that worked. With these uniforms, we don't feel as heavy and weighed down like cotton does, and when you really get your sweat on in the middle of summer, these at least air out and dry better than cotton.
