Covering half of roof with Love
Permalink  
 


Hey guys,

I have a question.  I cleaned the front portion of a roof last week (Wednesday) and ran out of chemical and couldn't finish that part.  Later that night we had heavy rains.  I rode by this past weekend and the portion we cleaned looked good.  So we went back yesterday and just sprayed the love on the portion that wasn't cleaned.  We haven't had rain yet and I rode by there earlier today and the part that I sprayed yesterday is a different color than the portion we cleaned last week.  It has a darker look as if it is still wet but I know it has to be dry by now.  Will this portion of the roof match the part we cleaned last week after we get a rain?  Just wondering because right now it looks funny because it looks like 2 different colors.  Also, I used the same formula so the chemical was the same.  thanks guys!

It will rinse off bro. We tell our customers there may be a light brown film till first rain, and usually it is not even noticeable

Chris & Bill,

Thanks for the info!  The roof looks better now after we had 2 days of rain.  It's great to have you all as a resource.  I greatly appreciate it!

I'm trying to get this right, so you spray the love  on the roof and walk away and let the rain do the rinse? and I noticed you put a trash bags over the gutter drains  correct? and even if it does'nt rain for several days it will all be good right?

is there certain pumps or nozzles that you could carefully spray the love on with out wetting the vegetation down or worry about covering it up with tarps. I have enough sense not to spray on a windy day, but just wondering.

Sure if you use a pump up sprayer you will probably not need tarps.
Of course it will take you 10x as long to do a job so the tarps and ground man are the way to go. This isn't a one man handyman gig. It is dangerous and tedious.

I think the vast majority of roof cleaners in the RCIA shoot from the gutter while on a ladder.  Can't do that from a pump up sprayer.  So you're shooting it 20-30 feet away and I haven't seen any nozzles with laser scopes. It's got me thinking now though...

Man, I can imagine the sick feeling that you'd get after seeing two different colors on a roof that you just cleaned.  Dang!

use the smallest tip that your pump can take and learn how to controll the spray.

What Kind of roof was it?

Ok since I havent started cleaning roofs as of yet. Let me ask this question.

From what I have gathered in this thread is that you do not rinse after you have applied the roof mix. Spray it on and let mother nature do her thing. Or do you do this only during the month that rain is expected.

Just wondering

Different people do different things.

To make the best choice for your company consider a few items.

1. Type of roof. Because shingles and cement tiles react very diffrently to a light sprinkle.
A light sprinkle on a shingle roof might not be bad. But, even a light sprinkle on a tile roof can send enough love residue to kill every plant in the dripline.

For this reason I typically will rinse the lower 1/3 of a tile roof.
Heavy rains are great and won't cause an issue

2. Gutters, partial, or non. Here in the south most homes have either no gutters or only partial gutters. Full gutters are less of a worry than no gutters obviously.

3. Forecast. Right now in Florida you can expect heavy rain between 3-7 pm about 3-4 days a week. So no need to rinse. In dryer climates you might consider rinsing.

4. Customer base. Some will simply demand that it look its best before you get the check.
Others will be okay with waiting on a "free rinse". I always lead with "For us to rinse it will cost a little more, and it uses your water. We can and usually do let mother nature take care of that"

5. Personal preference. I rarely do shingle roofs, but when I do I usually rinse them.
I'm picky. I can't stand driving away from a light grey shingle roof that went from barely noticeable black streaks to now looking like there is a light coating of rust over the whole thing. Someday, I'll get over it. Choose what's best for you and the customer.

I think I will personally rinse when I start washing roofs. I kinda like to see the after to make sure Im doing things right. Plus I like looking at the finshed look. Couldnt wait til rain. I need the now look LOl
