Nice roof cleaning work Mike!
Seems like you do quite a bit of High Point North Carolina Roof Cleaning

Is High Point, NC on the Carolina Coast in the Eastern Part of North Carolina ?

Seems like there are quite a few roofs needing cleaning in the Carolinas ?

Thanks guys. High Point is southwest of Greensboro.

We're in the northern central part of North Carolina.

1-1/2 hours north of Charlotte, 1 hour south of Virginia.

Yes Larry we cleaned the roof, house, and driveway on this job.

I love jobs like this. They pay well, you can work longer, and get great exposure.

Even though this job only took 3 hours to complete, to get all three services really helps get our name out there.

More referrals!

Nice work Mike,the roof has some height to it. If you don't mind I have a couple of questions since I will be working from a ladder only this year. Did you use the fatboy? What "tip" did you use. Did you reach the peak with no problem from the ladder? Was the ladder height past gutter level? Thanks Mike any information should would be a confidence builder.

I was using dual 5850 Delavans with 0060 and 1560 nozzles.

They reach the peak no problem with dual Delavans, they shoot farther than one.

The FATBOY can shoot just as far, and would reach this roof no problem.

I have not installed my FATBOYs yet, but I will install one of them this weekend. One of my pumps has given out.

I will post a video soon of the new FATBOY 7gpm Delavan in action, comparing it to the 5gpm Delavan 5850 with different nozzles, hoses, guns, with actual real world flow and distance measurements.

Hey Mike, I NOTICED the Driveway!
You did a beautiful job on THAT too, besides the roof cleaning you did upin High Point.
I always wondered where High Point North Carolina was ?
My Grandma used to go where North Carolina meets Tennessee to can stuff with here best friend, Dorothy Edwards.
She brought me back all kinds of CannedGoodies from North Carolina!
Canned Sweet Peppers, Chutney, and MOST of all Country Ham !!!
Those good folks in North Carolina KNOW what is good to eat!

These pics of before and after, are they taken as soon as the job is done? The reason I ask is I have a roof to clean that is on a high traffic street and I plan to do half of the front, put up lawn sign and use for advertising. I will need immediate results so will I need to rinse?

ALL roofs look better IMMEDIATLY if they are rinsed.
So yes, in YOUR case, I would say rinse.
But roofs LAST longer if "not rinsed".
This is because the roof cleaning chemicaldwell time is increased when not rinsing, and residual roof cleaning chemical remains.
The rain wateris a LOWER PH then tap water, and "activates" the residual roof cleaning chemicals killing component better too.

Thank you Chris ! I will go back in the Fall and clean the remainder and should I reapply cleaner to the previously clean half or leave as is? It is only 1000 sq. ft., ranch style home. Hopefully it brings a lot of attention to the growing algae problem in Northern Wi.

Try an experiment and don't rinse the second half.

That way you can go back after a few years and look to see which half rinsed and unrinsed lasted longer.

Take pictures of the roof so you will have proof to show the unrinsed rinse half will still be clean vs. rinsed half which is beginning to show streaks.

Great way to market your work.

Oh yes. No problem.

The FATBOY is the DADDY! It's a HUGE 12V pump.

As long as you plumb it right, using the hoses, valves, nozzles I have suggested, it will run at peak performance.

You will have no problem reaching 99% of all the roofs you'll clean.

Ladder placement was a slight issue for this job.

It was quite windy that day, so I could not use my 8 foot step ladder and shoot a couple of yards away like I usually do for one story houses.

I had to use my 20 footer, get close to the roof, climb up high enough so I was spraying slightly above the gutter line to push through the wind.

High volume pumps are a must for shooting through the wind.

The wind will push your stream of chemical quite a bit more if you are using smaller pumps.

The extra weight and inertia of the higher volume with the same pressure will help push through the wind better and allow you to shoot farther.

I took the before picture the day I did the job.

The after picture I waited until it rained and went back on a sunny day when I was not working.

Mike, I hate to sound ignorant but 0060 and 1560 nozzles just went over my head. I am sure that other newbies may feel the same. Who do you buy them from and if I ask them for 0060 and 1560 nozzles, will they know what I mean?

Also, what material are these nozzles made from?

They are stainless steel spraying systems nozzles, 1/4" male threaded.

http://pressureparts.com/U-Nozzles-C-Nozzles-Meg-SS-Pressure-Products-Page-3.aspx

Nozzles larger than #40 are hard to find.

pressureparts.com is the only website I have found that sells them.

Those of you with High Volume pumps- FATBOYs, Udors, Yamada and ARO air pumps would benefit greatly by using #50, #60, & #70 size nozzles.

0060 - 00 means a zero degree orifice (shoots a stream long distance)
- 60 is the size of the orifice

1560 - 15 means a 15 degree fan tip, 60 is the size

#70 nozzles only come in brass from this website.

Been doing a ton of reading and plan to continue. Things are coming together and I can't wait to get started!! Wheather is not cooperating ,high of 30 degrees today!! Plenty to learn yet but this forum is helping tremendously,can't stay away. All I can say is THANK YOU,THANK YOU,THANK YOU !!!!

Thanks a lot Mike for all of the tips on the nozzle sizes. smile Its kind of funny, but I have been using them all along just under another name for power washing..confuseAll the power washers I knowhave always called the 00 deg -straight shooter tips and the 15 deg fan shooter tips. I have never heard of a #70 but will have to check that out

We get our tipsfrom Pressure Works Inc. (804) 358-1129. I will have to compare prices.
