    Roof Cleaning Virginia got a reaction from Moose in House wash / 3+ stories from the ground   
    There were a couple of clowns on one of those FB groups that mentioned ladders for house washing.  I mentioned that we do 3+ stories from the ground and they scoffed.  Rather than educate 'em, I just moved on.  With little to no wind today, I saw the stream go easily 8-10' passed the gutter line on this 3 story home  This was with a plain old 8GPM belt drive machine and a 'shooter tip' at the gun.  No wand!.  Can't wait until my custom made injector-bypass system is ready, then we'll get even more distance!
    You're not climbing ladders to house wash are you?  :-)

    We use an xjet or fatboy to spray chemicals. Downsteaming works too, but we went through a lot of hoses.

    You guys need a 4gpm minimum.

    To get to 3 story, we can use a "shooter tip" with a 3' wand (see picture to top of chimney). This tip allows you to draw down stream solutions. Remove or turn off draw for rinse. 
    If your equipment does not the power to reach or you need a bit more reach, buy an aluminum lance (~7' long and weights about 2 lbs).
    We also use 1 or 2 lances to reach 2 story ceilings / soffits with a 25 degree tip to get rid of wasp and mud dauber nests (southern US) - use caution depending on type of surface.

    Typically with house washing we are downstreaming with a 4gpm, I have even done a 3 story walkup with the 4gpm and a long wand it barely reached but got the job done none the less, I'm thinking these guys using ladders will shoot themselves in the foot when they find how much time they are wasting with ladders.

    Roof Cleaning Virginia reacted to Shingle Brite in Stone Roof   
    It will cleanup just like every other roof cleans up. You will probably need at least 40% and maybe 50% ratio to get it clean and might have to hit some of it more than once but it will work. I would tell the owner the algae stains will be gone when you leave but the lichen will still be there but not very noticeable and dead as a hammer. It will decay and weather off in a few weeks. 
    Also, don’t be surprised if those tiles “bleed” color when you clean them. It won’t hurt anything but might scare you if it happens.

    Yes Ted, the old RCIA Forum has nearly 3 times the info about the cleaning of roofs as this one does. It is most unfortunate there is no way to transfer that information to this forum

    Back in the day, the RCIA had a different URL.  This post is from 2011.  Our record in Heritage Hunt, Gainesville Va 20155, was 28 homes on one street!!!  We did 10 roofs in one day, with one rig!  The new(er) RCIA forum is great, but the old one has lots on significant information from back when folks actually did honest research.  Check this out:

    Lol dude I have not even started yet. I have yet to do even one job. Hell I don't even have my website up or an LLC registered. I'm basically just trying to get prepared so that I can hit the ground running come Spring. Bet your bottom dollar...I will be on that list by the end of Fall;)

    It's too bad that FB has just about ruined most of the forums.  Most people have no idea what they're missing out on.
    They're wearing my website out Chris  :-)  Had about a 14 minute dwell time on one particular visitor today!

    A great site to measure area is www.findlotsize.com.  It is a free site for area and distance measurements. Only trouble is that overhead pics are taken in the summer so trees sometimes overshadow the view.

    We will blow out the gutters if possible, but when it is not possible, we use ladders and gutter spoons (from jracenstein).  We charge $100 minimum and include up to 100 linear feet.  Additional gutters are added at .75 per foot.

    Yes I guess I will see. Since I don't even have my equipment ordered yet it's still just a goal/dream. Hopefully come Spring I'll be able to hit the ground running though. I have door hangers ordered. Hopefully that and a lot of cold calling and good old fashioned door knocking will get me started. Thanks!

    Rather than spending the winter goofing off in Florida as I've done for several years now, this year it's all about upping our game even more!  Man, it's already paying dividends as we've just closed $5275 in business between yesterday and this morning alone!
    The economy is on fire and consumer confidence is soaring;  What are you doing to improve your bottom line for 2018?
