No New Posts Anyone use a drone for an estimate ( 1 2 )
This might be a neat tool to view a roof without getting up on a roof. Some of our homes are built on a hill and hard to view 100% of the roof. This would be more of a marketing tool. "Local company using drones".

No New Posts Controlling Run-Off
I am fairly new to roof cleaning and I have a couple of questions. My first question is how do most of you control the run-off coming off of the roof. Secondly, what do you do about a home that has gutters that are draining into the yard or flower bed? Any help would be appreciated. Savalas
