  1. Welcome Thomas. Funny, you have the same name of a roofing company we handle roof cleaning referrals for here in Jacksonville, Florida. We have a few roofers that we do work with or handle their roof cleaning referrals for.
  2. Welcome Dustin. For hauling water, you would only need a CDL if you have over 10,000 lbs GCVWR. It's the SH that you need to worry about. You can only carry 1000lbs of it. I am positive if you see black streaks on roofs, there is a market for it. Believe it or not, even my area of Florida people are mostly uneducated about roof cleaning. We've been changing that for a number of years now. The market here is saturated, but not with high level professionals. The first thing to do is forget what anyone else is doing in your area. Lead the way forging your own path. Those other guys will come and go. Some will stand the test of time, some won't. The thing I always say is if you're focusing on their business, you're not minding your own business. Businesses that get the most attention grow the fastest, so put your attention on yours. I operate like there is nobody else on earth that does what I do. There are people who claim to do similar things, but it's not what you do, it's how you do it that matters. Good luck on your new venture. This forum is the best place to learn about roof cleaning, and you'll get a lot of help growing your business here too.
  3. Hey, welcome aboard. We're glad to have you. Are the raccoons hard to keep still while you're washing them? lol j/k...great name!
  4. Even though the forums have slowed down due to the major migration to facebook and other social media, the RCIA is still the best place to go for roof cleaning information and training. This is still the best roof cleaning organization out there, led by one of the true pioneers of zero pressure roof cleaning. Anyone else on the fence about joining the RCIA, don't be. It will literally be one of the best things you ever did for your business.
  5. This is the section on metal roof cleaning https://roofcleaninginstitute.org/forum/7-metal-roof-cleaning/ I think your mix just wasn't strong enough, and you didn't have a good enough surfactant to help it stick! There are more things to know about metal roofs, so read up and ask questions. I do a lot of metal roof cleaning here in Jacksonville, Florida, but we also do a ton of tile roof cleaning here because they're very common.
  6. Hi Mike. Welcome to the best roof cleaning site on the internet! Is asphalt all you clean up there?
  7. Welcome back. Ireland is a wet place, but rain makes the algae grow so it can be both good and bad for business.
  8. Get a website if you don't have one already. Start building content and images of your work. Becoming a full member here gives you access to direct help in some of the stuff you need to do along the way.
  9. Hi Don. You just give Chris a call and he'll give you the test verbally. It's well worth the time to become certified here. The RCIA is a big help to your business, and having the backing of the people here is worth a fortune. Glad to see you joining.
  10. It is slow because you're new. Once you get well established, what you consider slow in January will be your busiest time now. Our phone rings constantly, we live for a little slowdown, but we don't get it many times. Unless you're living where it snows, I'm in Florida, so it's different for me. We're about to start washing down the pollen already!
  11. That's a phenomenal price for a roof cleaning. You better study up quick, and be super careful. Roof cleaning is tricky to get right, especially your first time. With that kind of profit, you should be able to join up and become a full member. Then you'll have access to all the information you need, and access to the best guru in the business. Good luck, you got a great price on that roof.
  12. Welcome to the forum Kavon. You've come to the home of the world leading experts on roof cleaning. You will find great support as a premium member, and we're glad to have you. Be sure to join the RCIA facebook group also.

  14. Let me help you by clarifying some thing, because your statements are incorrect and as a result, somewhat misleading. I don't think this is on purpose, I think it is just a matter of misinformation and lack of education and experience in this field. It is also a product of myths associated with roof cleaning and poor work from uneducated cleaners among other things. Don't worry, it's not a surprise to us. Being among the very best at what we do, we see this every day. First of all, roof fasteners should not be exposed where they may come into contact with anything, let alone roof cleaning solutions. If they're all rusting out, it is more likely the wrong fasteners were used, or installation is improperly done. It can also be that sub par low priced imported materials are used to provide a lower price for the client and maintain a profit margin for the installer. Same for the underlying paper. It should never come into contact with roof cleaning solutions if your roof was properly installed. Even if it does, a quality underlayment will not be damaged by a roof cleaning every five years. We clean roofs for roofers. We also clean roofs for roofing manufacturers. Our zero pressure cleaning does not damage roofs and does not void warranties. We are often hired to clean roofs as part of your roof warranty. The issues you describe are indicative of issues with materials and installation, not RCIA certified professional roof cleaning. There is also the possibility of hiring sub par lower priced budget roof cleaning contractors. Some of these untrained, uneducated companies will use unapproved cleaners that absolutely can cause serious damage. We safely clean roofs for many roofing companies, and even shingle manufacturers. Proper roof cleaning does zero damage, does not void the warranty, and is not the cause of the issues you are describing. However, improper roof cleaning can and will instantly void your warranty! Roof cleaning isn't new. It's been around a long time, and safe zero pressure roof cleaning is a great way to maintain your roof and even extend its life. The other alternative is to let your roof get eaten alive by algae, moss, lichens, and other organic contaminants that do real physical damage, and have your insurance policy cancelled because your roof is compromised. These are the real, cold, hard facts where roof cleaning is concerned. There are roof cleaners here who have cleaned the same roofs for 20 years or more and helped maintain their lifespan for their clients without issue. Algae, especially in Florida, doesn't care what type of roofing material you have. We clean literally every type of roofing material known to man. The determining factors for roof algae growth aren't really what material you have on the roof, that's just one factor. If all the others are right, you will get growth regardless. Thank you for posting so this topic could be addressed properly. As with anything, you need to hire the right professional for the job. Whether it's installing or cleaning the roof, your decision should almost never be based on price. Be careful out there, and if you need a roof cleaned, call an RCIA certified professional.
