No New Posts   Roof Cleaning Franchise

July 27, 2010

Roof Cleaning Franchises ?

For as long as we have had a web site, I have got people asking me if I sold, or have any plans to sell Apple Roof Cleaning Franchises.
Recently, I was approached by a company that helps you put together Roof Cleaning Franchises.
They told me I would be an ideal candidate for them to put a Roof Cleaning Franchise together for.
At first, the idea seemed stupid to me, since you can get a lot of free roof cleaning info off this roof cleaning forum.
And the price they are talking about selling the Roof Cleaning Franchise for was pretty high.
But that could easily be made back and more, the first year.
I am really thinking about offering turn key roof cleaning franchises, complete with hands on, personal training, and unlimited life time free consultations.
Any why not ? I see so much bullChit being sold as roof cleaning business opportunities. I would like to do it myself, and not with any company that put franchises together, I just don't know how. I mean the legalities, that kind of stuff.

No New Posts   Worker's Comp Info Needed -Florida

August 2, 2010

Hey guys.  I need some help on worker's comp in FL.  I thought the purpose of comp was to aid injured employees and protect employers from being sued.  So, why do most commercial jobs require a service contractor to carry comp?  Does it protect the business from being sued in the event the employer/employee is injured on the job?  I plan to set up my business as a sole proprietorship.  It will be owned/operated by only myself and do not plan to hire any employees for the time being.  I called Tallahassee and they said it's required that I have it!  Even with no employees!  Like stated previously, I thought it's purpose is to aid injured workers and protect employers.  What am I missing here?  Also, how expensive is it per $100 for a roof cleaner.  It just may be worth having so I can pick up some commercial jobs.  Any info is much appreciated!  Thanks  -Clay

No New Posts   painted valley tin

July 29, 2010

HEy Guys
Im fixing to do my third roof, but its my first really really nice home
My question is the roof is to steep to walk and Im gonna spray from a ladder
It has a nice brown ridge cap and brown valley tin
The roof is Extremely streaked so I know the love will get on the valley tin mayby on ridge cap.   Will it take the paint off these if I dont rinse the roof
I may could keep it off the vent but it will probably run down the valley tin because Ill probably have to put 2 maybe 3 coats the roof is so streaked
Thanks in advance

Tampa Roof Cleaning Business Song

Hello Everyone!
I like to think I am a more competent roof cleaner then a songwriter ?

But I like to be silly, and have Fun biggrin

Click for the music, and sign along

Here are the words:

We don't just use Chlorine/Water here in Tampa;
We always like to add some TSP
We never clean any roofs without a ground man;
Cause we learned how to do it right you see.

We don't make a party out of cleaning;roof cleaning
We leave Beer and other stuff at home

We put a little Borax in our mixture
So the Algae on the roof don't get re grown

I'm proud to be a roof cleaner from Tampa,
A place where cleaning brothers have a ball
We still smell like Chlorine down at the boathouse,
And Smoked Mullet's still the biggest thrill of all

Rubber boots are still in style for cleaning footwear;
Bare feet and Roman sandals just won't do.
Big Hose in Tampa is not just a suggestion
We want you to be competitive with us too!

I'm proud to be a roof cleaner from Tampa,roof cleaning
A place where cleaning brothers have a ball
We still smell like Chlorine down at the boathouse,
And Smoked Mullet's still the biggest thrill of all

We still smell like Chlorine down at the boathouse,
In Hillsborough County, Florida, USA.
