Cedar roof cleaning work

Thanks Mike. I was thinking a little from those lines, but just trying to stay off as much as possible. We could do the front with a lift, and the east side with the lift. The west side and back my helper could walk and we could tie off the saftey line on the lift itself. Do you think that is an issue? Also, can you suggest somewhere I can purchase a safety harness and rope, etc? Thanks

Yes, tie off from the lift would work fine. Safety harness, not sure. It's been so long since I bought mine, back in 2004. I've only used it twice. Get the shoulder harness instead of the standard rock climbing harness. The kind that supports you from your back.

M-Gard W550 is what we used to use.

Most wholesale shingle/roofing supply companies have the rope and harness set up. Northern Tool also sells it. You definitely want the full body harness. It holds you upright in case of a fall and supports you by your hips, back and sholders. It is the same set up that tree climbers use for the most part.

We get the same kit at Northern Tool or Depot.  I think I paid about $120 a piece.

Thanks for that Pat, I'll look into it.

Hi Guys,
I'm knew on this forum. Have been washing siding, decks and roofs for many years. Totally self-educated. Doing things differently that, at least, some of you. Yeah, I use Sodium Hydroxide and Chlorine, but am curious about Sodium Percarbonate (Oxygenated bleach) and particularly which Delavan Pump you recommend. Down stream injection is pretty limited.
Also, any thoughts on Penofin as a sealant?

Thanks in advance,

Sodium Percarbonate has a ph of 10, which is lower and less harsh than bleach.

Bleach is too harsh on bare wood in my opinion. It softens the fibers, degrades the integrity of the wood, and when you power wash the wood it causes it to furr too much and it will raise the wood grain. It also bleaches out the natural color of the wood.

Sodium Percarbonate does not bleach out the natural color of the wood and it does not soften the wood as much. It lifts the mold and mildew off the surface better, keeping more of the wood together after you power wash it, reducing the amount of furring.

I recommend the 5850 Delavan pump for wood restoration.

The FATBOY I recommend for roof cleaning.

I have not tried Penofin.

Yes, your reputation depends on it. Cleaning the wood is only half the job.

Cleaning the wood only helps the appearance, it does not help the longevity.

Sealing the wood does help it's longevity because it provides UV protection from the sun, water proofing, protects the wood from drying out, cracking, decaying, rotting, etc.

Cedar has natural chemicals in it that prevent it from decaying as quickly as other woods. It does not necessarily need to be sealed, just kept clean. If the customer wants a color for aesthetics, then the cost of labor and materials will dictate demand.
