  3. Refrigerator Magnets For Your Roof Cleaning Company!

    I have been using magnets as well for the last couple of years. A lot of customers love them. Some think its a great idea and think more of your company because you've done something different.
  4. Online roof measurement

    I'm glad this topic came up. I sometimes paint roofs (will be painting one next week weather permitting) and as someone who had nothing to do with roofing or carpentry in the past I don't know how to estimate the sq footage of a house. I would love someone to give me a simple for "dummys" way to get a ballpark estimate. Up to now I send my suppliers a few photos of the roof and they give me an estimate. I will post some photos of the job when its finished. We pressure washed it yesterday, it was in a bad way with moss and lichen. Early next week we will have to repoint the ridge tiles and replace some broken/ cracked tiles and treat with biocide to kill any moss/lichen spores that are left.Then its two coats of paint to finish.
  5. non invasive fall protection?

    We use builder rubble bags and put three 25 ltr water drums in each which give you 75 kgs weight. we put one either side of the house with a rope over the roof with rings attached. We each wear a harness with a long adjustable lanard and hook onto the rings. The bags can be moved to suit.
  6. Eric what sort of mix did you use on this roof and did you use a surfactant? Michael
