  1. A little common courtesey..... (rant)

    Like a picture or a custom graphic on our website? Simply reach out and ask, and we'll likely give it to you or loan it to you. We've done that for quite a few folks. No need to steal it, and then parade it around on the internet. Good grief. Have a little self respect even if you have none for our business. I've had a number of folks reach out over the years, asking to 'borrow' pics. In one instance, a broker actually offered money for the rights to use them in his locality, which I humbly accepted. Hell, I can think of two images on our own website that I borrowed. Why? Because they were good that's why. But the important thing is permission was obtained. And to think I've sent business to this clown. Not any more. In fact, I think we'll expand our service area a bit....... a missile across the bow as they say :-) (BTW - I think that the pics that the broker bought from us were the first ones in the rotator on our main website) A little common decency goes a long way.
  2. New roof pump variant!!

    Still using the 'new' variant of the 5850 Justin. (I typically buy 6 or 8 at time, so we're committed for a while.) We've used the Fatboys with much success in the past, but have stayed with the 5850s for a number of years now. This is due largely to cost (5850s are cheaper of course) and our application method. You'll definitely want a back up/replacement on hand. Our line of work tortures these 12v pumps and they WILL fail on you.
  3. How many services locations do you have on google?

    Three general areas for us, Northern Va, Montgomery County Md, and Atlanta Ga. We also work in WV from time to time as well, but don't advertise it.
  4. Slo Mo Softwash Surfactant is the BEST!

    No need for all of that Rick. Run 2:1 instead of 3:1 on your proportioner / chem combiner / whatever it's called. ie 2 inputs to one output. One input with SH AND SLO MO, and the other with water.
  5. This pair of cougar paws

    Don't walk on SH coated roofs with them. It will cause the male (?) Velcro on the sole of the boot to fail, as it gets brittle with SH exposure like most plastics do. We're getting over a year out of the boots before the Velcro begins to fail. Keep in mind, we do LOTS of roofs though.
  6. This pair of cougar paws

    I suggest you buy the first pair locally. ABC Supply carries them, and the replacement pads. I see there are two SBC Supply locations near you.
  7. Bing - Bird's Eye View

    Anyone else notice that Bing Map's 'Bird's Eye View' is essentially gone? What a bummer. Anyone know the reason why the did away with it? I presume it has to do with the might dollar, and the company that actually owns the images, Pictometry. Luckily, I have a workaround for one of the counties that we work in. Still working on the others. Anyone have any insight? This sucks!
  8. Slo Mo Softwash Surfactant is the BEST!

    But don't let it freeze! Lesson learned the hard way. Luckily there was only 2 gallons left in that container! GREAT PRODUCT!!
  9. This pair of cougar paws

    No doubt, the covers are money well spent, plus they further add as far as safety goes; they keep the pads from getting wet while on the ground. Once wet, they don't provide nearly the same grip. Another plug for the Cougar Paws - they help to prevent damaging asphalt shingles while being walked on. We're sure to share this tidbit of information with our clients. For those not familiar with the product that Ultimate is referring to above, this pic will help.
  10. Cedar shake cleaning in Clifton Va

    Now that the busy season is behind us, it's nice to have some time to visit the forum! Here's a cedar job that we did this summer in Clifton Virginia- it turned out fabulous, and the home owner was obviously very pleased.
  11. PVC Hose Barbs

    Lori, have you considered stockīng them in stainless steel? We've had very good success with them.
  12. Eaton Compressor 9 HP Electric Start

    How is it working out for you Tommy?
  13. QSE from Cleaner Today

    Thanks Chuck and Chris. Let's pick the meanest biker bar in Fl next winter, and go raise a little hell, since you guys have my back :-) I thought my post was quite clear "Presuming you're a would be vendor, say as much." So, if ya ain't, ya ain't. Hope you're beating than damned cancer Chuck.
  14. QSE from Cleaner Today

    Ironically, this question was also just posted on FB. Presuming you're a would be vendor, say as much. I'll hold my thoughts and see if you take the high road, or not. Then I'll reply accordingly.
  15. Rust Stain Removal in Northern Virginia

    The same can be said for rust removal from most surfaces.
