    Real nice job on those barrel tile roof cleanings in Tampa, Florida Chris. No question why you are a leader in this industry!

    Nice looking job. I also liked the light colored shingles when I use to clean asphalt. Only do them for realtors now, who helped me get started. I am going to drive to Jacksonville on our trip to Florida next week. We have to do a presentation to HOA near Orlando for cedar roof cleaning. Looking to winter in Florida and cleaning cedar part time while there. A lot of cedar roofs in Florida and an open niche market. Sure beats the 10 degrees here today in Iowa. LOL Great work!

    Cleaning the asphalt roof shingles makes a huge difference in the resale value of a home. Like yourself, we do a ton of shingle roof cleaning work down here for realtors, who plan to place a home on the market. Once a potential buyer sees those black streaks on the roof, it can be hard for the realtor to do their job. Buyers see a neglected asphalt shingle roof in need of cleaning, and often wonder what ELSE the home seller has neglected It is my understanding that the Jacksonville Florida area is a hot real estate market, because it is a pretty desirable place to live. Think about it ? No way the NFL puts a football team in a place that isn't gonna grow! I have never been that far north, Flagler Beach is as far north as I have even got. I am single, and did meet a girl from Orange Park part of Jacksonville online, but we are just a little too far apart for a relationship, and decided to just be friends instead.

    That looks great, Hopefully With a now clean asphalt roof that home will sell for its owners. Not only is the roof cleaning necessary, it can lift your morale with Pride of ownership. Your doing a great job in Jacksonville Florida.

    Thanks Chris. It did come out nice. Since this house is on the market, I think it will help this homeowner make a faster sale, and possibly more money on the sale of this home. A number of neighbors in this area could use a roof cleaning as well, so we hope to hear from them. We put out a discount card at neighbors homes around the houses we do, so hopefully a few take advantage of it.

    Wow, that sure is a nice looking asphalt shingle roof cleaning you did up in Jacksonville! I just love cleaning light colored shingle roofs, because the difference is quite dramatic, and that makes for very happy customers.

    There are a lot of roofs in general in Seminole county that need it but the education is lacking. Common response I get is I didn't know you could or were suppose to clean the roof.

    It has been awhile since I have been over to Seminole County Florida, or to Sanford. The last time I was there, I noticed quite a bit of roofs, both tile and shingle, that needed cleaning. I was surprised that there are several parts of Sanford that have Homeowners Associations, like we do over here.

    This post I am replying to, I made in 2013. It's 2017 and nothing has changed, except that with newer equipment, I now clean roofs without walking on them-or minimally-compared to a pressure washed roof, which has to be walked on, basically every square foot! Here's a couple videos of me cleaning roofs from a step ladder.

    Good work Dave. Chris is right. In the day Chris cleaned a number of them.

    Thanks Chris and Hispanos En Accion. This was done in the Villages of San Jose community of Jacksonville, Florida. There are a lot of tile roofs there that need cleaned still. This one is a great example of what we can do for the residents there.

    Roof Cleaning Greenville, NC | 5 Year Warranty

    Yes sir that's absolutely Right. Anyone in my service area will receive a roof cleaning with a 5 year warranty that covers all roof stains and harmful organisms, including moss. We clean roofs in Wilson, North Carolina too.
  22. 1 point
    Yes that's right Chris, steep roofs like this can seem impossible to clean and customers may even want to call a roofing company to replace their shingles. However we can get the black steaks off any roof. Rocky Mount, North Carolina is close to Greenville and is also apart of our roof cleaning service area!

    That was a nice Softroof Wash you up in Tarpon Springs Nick. I can't read the yard sign, is that yours ?

    Thanks Chris. This one was in the exclusive Deerfield community if I remember right. That is the south side area of Jacksonville, off of Southside Blvd. Very nice homes, many with tile roofs that need cleaned! Guns and hoses, I know what you're getting at, and nice job on the restorations! My point is only that the original glazing can never be restored. Just like that classic car. You might be able to put a new clear coat on it, but the last thing anyone wants is to damage or lose the existing one! It is far more valuable and desirable in original condition than repainted. As you know, our clients don't have to worry about paying to restore the tiles on their roofs, because there is zero damage from our process.

    Quote : The damage done is irreversible, and leaves the tiles looking dull, compared to their original appearance. To the OP I completly understand if you make that statement in the context of your sales pitch. But other than that its not totally true. WE clean roofs and are also a paint contractor and repaint and restore tile roofs all the time. We just sealed a classic terricotta clay tile roof yesterday that looks amazing. Clay tile is amazing. I say that because like I told the customer. Its like a classic car. Of all the tile roofs I have cleaned in 20 years its the only tile style that I can get to look as good as the day they installed it. ( that being said OP your original statement is at least 80% true) If you let me seal it it will be better. Kinda like a frame off restoration on a car. He cannot believe what I did. I took an old abandoned for 2 years house roof where the tile was as black as muck and made it better than new. Chris I almost came back down and told him "deals off" . But he was not home so I stayed. I used my normal mix beefed up and hit the worst spot 3 times without the least bit of change. I think it had a baked on glaze locking the GM in. I persisted and won that battle. What a thrill when i seen his face. He asked me at least 5 different times. "YOu used your pressure washer didn't you?" You had to pull it out didn't you? Nope we don't ever do that. EVER MAN!

    Nice job on that big tile roof Adam! It really is a shame they allowed someone to pressure wash it previously. Jacksonville Florida is a big place, what part of town was this one in ?

    Homeowners hate those black streaks on the roof, especially when they are right in front of the house, like this home up in Willowbrook, Illinois

    Thanks for all the kind words Guys This new forum software we just installed is really cool. Not only is it much faster, but it also allows additional roof cleaning pictures to be posted into existing Blog Threads, like this one! Here are some more tile roof cleaning pictures we did this week, here in the Tampa Florida area. I FINALLY have a roof cleaner, who is handy with a Camera. He is proud of his work, and always shows it off on his Facebook page, to all his friends and family. We pay our roof cleaners well, not only because we have so much time invested in their training, but because we want them to be happy here at Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa. From sharing these tile roof cleaning pictures on Facebook with his many friends and family, our roof cleaner was able to get two large tile roof cleaning jobs in Tampa we would not have had otherwise. So, we paid him a generous bonus, over and above his weekly salary. We feel that well trained and well paid happy employees make happy customers

    That's not a standing seam roof picture, these panels in the photos are commonly called 9" R-Panels. The great thing about R-Panels is that you can screw down fall protection anchors pretty much anywhere and they are very inexpensive($15-$20). Most metal panels are painted with a Kynar finish, very similar to Teflon. It is designed to have zero friction when wet to allow for self cleaning during rain. Don't ever get caught on a metal roof in the rain or having to walk back over your soapy mix, it won't end well. A standing seam roof cost about 30% more and is easy to identify because you won't see thousands of screw heads everywhere. They are held in place by clips under the panels and you are prohibited from screwing into them or you will void the waterproof warranties. Fall protection on a true standing seam roof is more expensive because you can't just screw thru the panels. You would use a seam clamp anchor like this one, I developed this anchor for my full time job. They run just under $200. Looks like you did a great job on the roof and the driveway. Did you softwash the drive or PW?

    Wow, that was an awesome metal roof cleaning job you did up in Jacksonville Adam. Metal Roofs can be quite dangerous to clean, if you don't knowwhat you are doing.

    Nice work Nick, as always. It seems like you clean a lot of roofs up in the Landsbrook section of Palm Harbor. We have been very busy too, down here. And, like yourself, many of the work orders I wrote up today, are from repeat customers we cleaned shingle and tile roofs for years ago. These last few years here in the Tampa Bay Florida area have had average and above average rainfall, and we all know what that does to the roofs! I think you guys up there in Palm Harbor get even more rain then we do down here, because you are closer to the Gulf. So, not only are the shingle and tile roofs getting dirty faster because of all this rain, the well watered Algae that is growing on them is thick, and takes more time and chemical to remove it.

    The weather was perfect down here too today, for roof cleaning. I quoted a house flipper here 3 weeks ago on a large shingle roof. I told him to decide quickly,. because we were getting more and more busy, as we get closer to the holidays. So he calls me today, and decides to go ahead with his shingle roof cleaning, and wanted it done by this Friday, LOL I could not fit him in, so I gave the job to a local competitor/friend. It too was a light colored asphalt shingle roof, just like the one you just did up in Jacksonville.

    Light colored shingles really show the difference sometimes. I'm sure you'll have fun down here, it was 80 degrees today while I was cleaning an asphalt shingle roof here in Jacksonville. The weather was perfect.

    Yup, if they have their roof "pressure washed" because it's cheaper, that cheap price is going to cost them big. That's why Ultrasoft Pressure Washing takes the pressure out of cleaning! This is in the very nice community of Marsh Landing in Ponte Vedra. It's actually pretty close to Jacksonville. Ponte Vedra is just south of Jacksonville Beach, so it's not far at all. Takes me as long to go out to the west side of town as it does to go there. The north end of Marsh Landing has Jacksonville addresses. I've already done a few roofs in here, and one or two are at the north end with a Jax address.

    I followed high school football, and our team from Armwood High School had to play Ponte Vedra for the Florida State Champoinship. You guys beat us that year, mostly because of Tim Tebow being on your team. That barrel tile roof cleaning you did up in Ponte Vedra came out great John!

    Looks Great! Its amazing how many people don't realize you don' t use a pressure washer on any type of roof.

    My 2007 Ford Truck was made in Louisville Kentucky Gary! I know you do a lot of roof cleaning up there, but I had no idea how many nice areas that are in the Louisville area. What would you say are the top 10 nicest areas of Louisville Gary. You know, the ones with the largest homes, and the biggest roofs.

    We do not clean roofs in Tarpon Springs, it is too far away from us. But I really like Tarpon Springs, especially fishing Lake Tarpon, and watching the Greek Kids dive. There are some truly awesome Greek Restaurants there, as well as great Saltwater Fishing, and generally really nice people. You do great tile roof cleaning Nick, and these pictures show it! Maybe one day, we can both get a day off from our busy roof cleaning schedules, help out with some Gas, and go out on your boat. LOL, both of us work so hard, it is hard to take a day off.

    I have been to Englewood beach before, and saw all those dirty tile roofs that needed cleaning down there. That was back before I knew you. You are right about getting good food there! I can't remember the name of the seafood place we ate at, but I cleaned my plate! Do you know if Englewood Baithouse is still there Chuck ?
