  1. Because dollar size nipples on a roof always bring in calls from impressed neighbors and passersby.
  2. I have seen incredibly fast and powerful results from blogging on this site. This is a question (Mainly for Chris) that could be very beneficial for all. I'm wondering if blogging on this site regarding other services that we offer would have results like it does for roof cleaning. Many have related services such as painting, window cleaning, gutter guards etc. I was on page 1 in a week for roof cleaning in 3 separate markets. If I could do that for some of my other services, using the blog here, that would be sweet.
  3. I figure they go with us because we are certified, licensed, insured and professional. When we get on their roof we do an inspection, cleaning, gutters, trim any branches on the roof etc. I figure that way they don't have to worry about paying another qualified professional to get back on the roof. Its easy for us to take care of it while we are up there and that has value. It would for me if I was in their shoes.
  4. We include Roof and gutter clearing as well as gutter face whitening on every house. We usually do a test section that includes the gutter whitening, which sells it . we reason with them that it does not make sense for them to consider paying somebody else to get up there and do those other things (Gutter cleaning and whitening) when we are already up there. I suppose its just a different way of accomplishing the same way, we just like to include it from the outset, it feels more complete. Of course we charge for it. Ted, do you not commonly get a few drips down the gutter face? we are pretty meticulous and usually do.
  5. The "shiney sheen"? Hmmm. Sounds like he's privy to top secret information. No I have never noticed a problem. New gutters are generally a baked on enamel. Wipe and rinse and there fine. Some gutters are painted. Wipe rinse and they are also fine.
  6. We use the standard mix. We do this because we need to match the clean streaks left on the gutter faces from the roof cleaning. If its not as potent you can see it. We just use a small amount of the mix in a bucket, wet the brush, light scrub (wipe), dwell 3 min and rinse. A degreaser by itself does not do the trick but we use it when needed.
  7. I'm looking forward to trying out my new air pump (the one Chris recently recommended) I still think I will like using my 12v for most residential though. It will be nice with the air on big commercial jobs. Should have it Monday.
  8. Crappie, you will want to use a stand off for many roofs.
  9. Ha ha, thanks. Most of my posts are mindless dribble. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
  10. In my service area we have moss and lichen on every roof and basically no rain for 5 months. Having said that: Rinsing: Pro's: it definitely looks better rinsed. You won't have to worry about a "1/2 ass rain" which will fill the soil with salt but not dilute. You don't have to flush the gutters since this will be done with the rinse. We always rinse/flush all metal since the large amount of Salt leftover is corrosive. (We mention this in our proposal so they know we care for their property and understand how to Properly protect it, even though most likely they would have had no idea) Con's: It takes longer. It's not just a rinse, it's also a salt dilution. You lose the residual effect of leaving the dried chems on the roof, it's not the SH (that's dead) its the salt, which crystalizes and breaks down the structure of moss and lichen. Sometimes you will have copious bubble overflow at the downspouts and usually more clean up because of the fines and moss that Wash off the roof. Fast Finish: The northwest is unique. Unfortunately you can't clean roofs the way most of the guys on this forum can. If you apply your solution you are going to oxidize all that moss which will look much worse than when you started, telling the HO it will go away with wind and rain is simply not the case and they would not be happy with the job even if it did (cuz it will look like snow). Also, you have to use much more solution so the large moss fluff soaks up enough to get to the tendrils. Gutter cleaning is an extra service for homes that only have GM. For roofs that have moss it has to be part of the service. Without the proper method you will have to do it twice. I have a method that works great if you want to pm or call. This info will only cost you $49,999.99. I will also include an official "Pacific Roof Cleaning" Sticker. Just kidding. Give me a buzz if you'd like. It's pretty simple and effective. BTW, The 'Mean Blue' hose is decent too.
  11. Use an 8 gpm tip for the detail stuff, it works great with the 5850. Also, who will you yell at when the wind turns with no ground man.
