I am just looking for some advice on how to make sure I...

No New Posts Removing Tar on Shingles leaking from chimney stack
 
(Preview)
I have a roof with bad black stains on it from a power vented chimney. The stains seem to be oil from the boiler for the building.  Does anyone have a solution that would clean this?  I would assume that multiple applications would be necessary for full removal. Looking for your expert any ideas?

It was pretty bad with a lot of tarpaper showing.  Anyway I rinsed it off with the garden hose and it took a long  time to do 150sq'. if that were a real job on a real house, no way would I be making any money. I have a 4gpm 4000 psi, but that would probab...

No New Posts Gain vs. (Gain Ultra)
 
(Preview)
We ran out of our stock of GAIN Now all we can find is  ULTRA GAIN   I know you guys mentioned not to use ULTRA GAIN.   What is the best alternative Sorry, I haven't been on the forum in ages.  Not sure if you guys changed up the mix or not, but last time I thought Gain was what you were using.

It would be nice to have a posting page where anyone could put up a promtional post without any replies. I personally use most of my membership(s) for promotional posts. That's why I pay fo...

When I was first learning roof cleaning, I was informed the algae actually eats the limestone additive found in asphalt shingles. Does anyone have documentation substantiating this?
