  1. Chris will never steer you wrong when it comes to roof cleaning. He had these pumps, and they dumped on him when he needed warranty help. A lot of people in the industry are aware of the problems with these roof cleaning pumps, mostly because of his advocacy for something better and the other people who have had issues with them. I'm sorry people were bashing you on facebook. Every Tom, Dick, and Harry has access to the internet now, and that is the result. Before smart phones, not everyone could get online, so things were much better then. Although you also had the results of many people being anonymous online. Anyway, back to the pumps. It's unfortunate they still tell people it's made for roof cleaning. Just take Chris's advice and keep it clean. At the same time, prepare for some upgrades/changes in your equipment to make life easier.
  2. Crazy how slow forums have become after flakebook came along. I still prefer the forums to that medium.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Hi Mike. Welcome to the best roof cleaning site on the internet! Is asphalt all you clean up there?
  9. Welcome back. Ireland is a wet place, but rain makes the algae grow so it can be both good and bad for business.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Welcome to all of the new guys showing up. This is a great place to be, and a huge benefit to your business. Learn how to be the best one of the best roof cleaners in the nation and join up!
  16. 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.
  17. I have used them for years. Just won a t-shirt from them on their facebook page not long ago. Very happy with Joe Walters insurance for my pressure washing and roof cleaning company. We are able to give our clients good peace of mind because we have great coverage.
  18. Spray and forget is marginally effective for cleaning roof streaks. The only thing I can tell you is that whatever the product is, it's not what manufacturers recommend for properly cleaning roofs. It may void your warranty if not approved for safe roof cleaning by the shingle manufacturer. I know it's not the answer you want to hear, but is best to find an RCIA certified roof cleaning company in your area to safely handle this roof cleaning for you.
  19. Yup, they're down right CRIMINAL if you ask me. Yet somehow, we always get these guys who just joined the site, or facebook group, or whatever coming in and saying how fabulous it is, and how they make a million dollars because of HA. I'm trying to figure out how you get that much money from fake leads, lol. Not only do they use your company name and your phone number, redirected to one of their lines, but they will also spoof local phone numbers when they call you. They know that you won't answer their out of town numbers, and they know you're not ever going to answer if their name shows up on caller ID. I can't wait to see lead companies tank. ALL of them.
  20. I can't stand Home Advisor. They ripped me off when they were Service Magic. I highly recommend ALL contractors stay away from HA. They sell fake leads, and that alone is reason enough to not give them your business. If you're closing 90% of your leads, you are very rare, because almost nobody does that. Their reps like to join groups and claim all kinds of great success with them that really doesn't equate to what the average person will get. The average guy is going to get a bunch of fake leads, and them dipping into his bank account when they're not supposed to. The thing is, if you don't dispute the fake leads, you just get screwed. If you DO dispute them, it's still up to HA whether they keep your money. This is not a limited experience or a fluke. Literally almost everyone who has used them has the same kind of experience. People who don't exist, phones that ring but never answer, blah, blah. My advice is STAY FAR AWAY from HA and any other lead service.
  21. Here's a cool shot of a metal roof cleaning we did recently. We've had a number of metal roof clients calling lately. It's something we seem to do real well. One thing that sets us apart when it comes to having your metal roof cleaned is the fact that we not only rinse the roof, but we neutralize and release all of the cleaners from the surface to help prolong the life of metal roofing material. This critical step is important, and not only helps protect the roof from damage during the cleaning process, it also helps to remove the residue left behind. This means your metal roof is shiny like a new penny when we're done cleaning it! We are the only RCIA certified metal roof cleaning company serving Jacksonville, Florida. If you or anyone else needs a metal roof cleaned, give us a call 904-304-0810 or visit our roof cleaning page for more information. http://www.ultrasoftpressurewashing.com/services/roof-cleaning-jacksonville-florida/
  22. You will learn exactly what equipment to use, how to use, mixture ratios, how to advertise, you will get help with successful advertisement, you will get help from beginning to end, and once you're a member you get access to Chris Tucker. He will take his tone to personally guide you to success. I owe him more than anyone else in this industry because he had helped me make tens of thousands of dollars with hundreds more to come. Three membership is worth it just for access to the hidden boards to learn, but having Chris to help you is worth more than you can imagine right now.
  23. Welcome Jesse. You've come to literally one the best organizations in this industry, hands down. If you want to grow a successful business, this is the place for the help.
  24. The idea is that you basically run a hose from the lid vent to underneath the trailer. This helps because the fumes from SH are heavier than air, and they fall down onto the trailer and contribute to rusting it out. It's just one extra thing to slow down the decay by venting it to ground level below your trailer. Also, on my old trailer the ladder racks were right above the tanks, and you can see how it rusted those terribly in comparison because it vented right out the top. Diverting those fumes anywhere else will help.
