No New Posts Zinc Strips (Preview)
The other day a potential customer asked me if I knew anything about putting Zinc Strips on the roof.  Does anyone know anything about this?

No New Posts Recurring Revenue (Preview)
I'm new to this, and I'm sure it's been discussed and I can't find the thread. Do you guys offer a separate maintenance service to keep the revenue coming from your existing customers? I guess what I'm asking is do you offer a spray-and-walk-away service on an annual renewal basis that maybe guarant...

Poll Pre-Rinse (Preview)
Hello friends! I just wanted to see how many of you all pre-rinse the roof to cool it down before you start applying the chemical?  I know sometimes when it is really hot outside the solution will dry fairly quickly.  Just curious as to the differenct methods each professional uses.  Thanks guys! Mike...

No New Posts Training Pics
Hey guys! Just thought I would post some pics of the roof we did today for training purposes.  We used Apple Cider Sauce that was pumping from a 5850.  We did not rinse and put 2 layers of love on.  The results look great and some of the pics have a half clean/half dirty image so the viewer can immediately se...

No New Posts Hard water stains on glass
I've gotten so much great info from all of you, I thought that I'd share something from my skill-set that could be useful.  I'm a window washer AND soon to be roof cleaner.  It has been my experience that the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in water can damage/stain glass.  I can't speak of the quality of wa...

No New Posts Chemical coating on roof
Hey guys, I was cleaning a roof today using Apple Cider Sauce using a sprayer nozzle similar to a water hose nozzle.  I was wondering how much chemical should you put on the roof intitially?  Should there be a lot of chemical running off the roof into the gutter or should I use a different nozzle with more...

No New Posts My first roof
I just cleaned my first roof. This was the perfect house for a beginner, the homowner knew it was my first roof so it took allot of pressure of me. I was using apple cider sauce mix. On the after picture the roof had still not been rinsed. Thanks Chris. PS The homowner was so happy that he told me to have peopl...

No New Posts Roof Warranty Determination
Hey guys, Haven't seen anything on here about how they determine if your roof warranty is still valid?  Do they do a lab test to a shingle or do they determine if the warranty is still eligible from visual observation?  Or perhaps another way to determine that?  It would be good info to know for our own re...

No New Posts Cleaning Process (Preview)
Hello friends! I am a new roof cleaner and had a question about the techniques you all use.  Using the non pressure method with the chemicals you all use, such as apple cider sauce or apple cider, etc., do you actually see the roof coming clean as you spray the solution on the roof from the tank?  I guess wh...

No New Posts Water restrictions (Preview)
I was just sitting here thinking about how hot it is here this week and a thought crossed my mind. Have any of the veterans had to deal with drought conditions where the state or county has placed water restrictions on the area. I can remember years ago, having such strict water restrictions that no non e...

No New Posts Chemical for NON-Pressure roof cleaning?
I see you guys are using a non-pressure roof wash and wanted to know what it is, how long do you leave it on the roof before rinsing, how to rinse it off, how long do you tell your customer it will stay clean, how safe it is for flower beds and plants?

Poll Removing paint from shingle roof
What should I use to remove paint from shingles. The paint has been on the roof for about 6 yrs. It covers a pretty large area. Should I use paint remover? Will this change the color of the shingle? Thanks, Action Roof Cleaning

No New Posts Soap dispensing idea!! ( 1 2 )
Hey, Iv'e been working on an idea for introducing the soap AFTER the pump and not having to add it to the mix itself. I've been looking to downstream decks with my pressure washer,... and thought that maybe you could sort of downstream soap into the roof mix using the same principle,..because downstr...

No New Posts Only 1 tank needed?
Hi Guys, I have learned so much from everyone here.  Thank you all.  Am I correct in saying that only 1 tank is needed on or in a truck (filled with the cider) and I do not need a rinse tank? From what I read, there is really no need to rinse?!?!?!?  I love that , it should make the work a bit easier, that is for su...
