Well today was a good day to spray the Remax building but we were worried about any over spray on cars so we waited till after they closed to spray the roof.
  
Will the over spray hurt anything on cars?

Looks like a professional job well done! Lil Bob you da man!

I am glad I waited until after hours to clean the roof. I will watch and shoot a better picture of the completion and post it.

We are currently working with the local paper on a story about roof cleaning. I will post the story whenever it hits the paper. Maybe some of you could contact your local news and ask them if they are looking for a good story, that is what I did. wink Just a thought... confuse

Here was a small job from today.

This was our first online credit card payment and it went flawless. We lost a few dollars with the transaction however we are changing that so the homeowner will pay the extra 3% to pay with credit card just like at the gas stations...hmm...

Our News Article hit the paper today! It was free and I did not get to write or see it, but the phone is ringing...


Service takes cleaning to new heights

Daily Press & Argus • April 19, 2010

A Livingston County businessman has started a service that removes unsightly, unhealthy and potentially expensive algae from roofs.

Bob Geroux, a licensed builder and founder of RWG Inc., created a new division in his Howell-based company called Uglyshingles.com that focuses on removing a limestone-eating algae called gloeocapsa magma.

 

The algae, a cyanobacteria typically close to black in color, is prevalent on many southern Michigan homes and feeds on the limestone used to weigh down fiberglass shingles.

 

If left unchecked, Geroux said, the algae can gradually eat through shingles and force a homeowner to replace his or her roof.

 

“The algae is getting to be quite an epidemic,” Geroux said. The cyanobacteria is spread through bacterial spores, sometimes through the air, and often transmitted directly by birds and other animals.

 

“There aren’t many people out there cleaning it, but we look to provide a cost-effective service that can save homeowners thousands of dollars ... and their roofs.”

 

Geroux started offering the service in part because of Michigan’s declining economy.

 

When people are trying to save money, Geroux said replacing roofs only becomes a high priority in the case of extreme damage. Geroux said cleaning roofs can help them to last longer, and ultimately save customers a few bucks in the process.

 

“Not many people were out there, cleaning roofs,” Geroux said. “We researched and realized you can clean them and help customers save money. So many people have this problem but they don’t realize there’s a quick, safe, effective fix for it.”

 

Geroux’s business uses a mixture of household, nontoxic chemicals to remove the algae, without the use of a pressure washer, which he said washes away granules.

 

“Washing away granules is basically washing away your warranty,” Geroux said.

 

UglyShingles.com serves homeowners in Livingston, Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties. For more information, call (888) 742-5794 or visit www uglyshingles. com
