I would like to see a PDF bulletin that's just about cleaning roofs. 90% of mine are tile.
The damage to a shingled roof is obvious-loss of granules.
To tile, it's loss of glazing-if it's a glazed tile roof. Loss of ridge cap cement pieces [they are always cracked up in a million places and pressure washing sends the pieces off into space!
Cracking tiles: Pressure washing a tile roof requires the worker to step on basically every tile on the roof, while we can do a 10' x 15' area from 1 spot or from a ladder and not even walk on it! Also, if not glazed, the most tile roofs are not colored cement, but slurry coated [painted] gray cement.
Pressure washing makes these painted tiles look paler and begins the breakdown process of the roofs coloring, ending in 1/4 of the roof having bare gray cement showing.
I think any bulletin from RCIA [ a national org ] should not be just about shingles?
I feel like crap and I'm in a rotten mood, so I hope it doesn't show too much? LOL


 Yes Chuck, since you guys down in Florida have tile roofs, Chris w/ Apple Roof Cleaning or someone from Florida should write one. 

 

I don't have tile roof in NC or rarely see them, so I will leave the roof cleaning tile technical bulletin for the Florida guys.


I know how to clean tile roofs and I know why pressure washing them is not as good as Non-Pressure cleaning of them.

As to making a PDF ??

It may as well be brain surgery [ which I may need, but can't do, anymore than a Tecnical Bulleting PDF LOL }

Chris is computer literate and can probably make one though?

I'm sure he doesn't "NEED" my input, but I'd be glad to help with it!

Thanks for updating the dead links Mike. I noticed that a short time ago.
I thought it was kind of fishy.
