No New Posts Questions regarding using Tarps (Preview)

When I remove the tarps, for safe measure, do I continue to water the areas that were covered as well as the grass around where the tarps were, or will watering cause runoff to be absorbed by the shrubs and flowers. I understand the theory of chemical dilut...

No New Posts SLATE roof
Okay, I would "guess" that a SLATE roof would be cleaned the same way as a tile/asphalt roof.  Is there anything that I should know that might cause me trouble?

No New Posts Gutter Rinsing and Shooting From the Top Down: Why Is This Needed? (Preview)
Always gently spray the top of your roof at the ridge cap downwards. Never, ever, spray from the eaves or gutter line and work your way up. This is a Cardinal Rule and a BIG NO-NO. Why?   Simply because, you could get the roof cleaning solution and or water up underneath the shingles. Two issues can arise...

No New Posts How long does it take you all to clean a roof?
Average house, on average.............looking for just spray time.  Please do not include the setup and tear down of your job.  I just got a new fatboy and I am convinced it would take me roughly 15 minutes to spray the roof.  Thank you very much, Brad

No New Posts 10% SH (Preview)
I had a question.  I am going to make 40 gallons of Apple Cider Sauce.  However, the SH I have is only 10% instead of 12.5%.  Should I use more than the normal 15 gallons of SH since it is weaker or not?  Will 10% SH even work?  I have never used 10%, but cannot get my hands on 12.5% right now.  I still have 6 gall...
