He Stole Our Job, but KILLED the Plants!
Permalink  
 


Look at the aftermath of one man roof cleaning hacks.
The customer called me crying and said she wished she had hired us, but this clown was cheaper! I TRIED to warn her, but the hack assured her her plants would not die! He even guaranteed them to steal the roof cleaning job! Now, the truth comes out, he is uninsured, and operated out of a weekly rental trailer park. She is Funked.

Chris I was talking to a fellow the other day about his roof and he said I got mine done a couple of years ago and the guy did a great job it took him 3 days, he did kill all my bushes on the side of the house but boy did he do a good job. He wasn't even mad about the bushes.

Chris, Get This Person On CAMERA!!! Not only would it be a Great testimonial for your Company, it would also be a great testimonial for using cetified RCIA Contractors.

No, I think the next time she gets her roof cleaned, it will be by a Professional.

Dillution is the solution. I bet he didn't do his homework on RCIA or any other board.

I wonder what's worse,..guys causing damage like this from not knowing proper methods,..or guys like this causing damage simply because they don't care. They just want a check and don't care about future business or the VICTIMS property. Hit and run business's will always be around,....just not the same ones,..for obvious reasons.

They know Jeff. Actually, the tile roof looks good, it's the plants suffering that is the problem. No way a rookie roof cleaner could have cleaned a big tile roof like this so well.

He just didn't care about his customer!

138394,Good Call Guy!

A video would really help show the evidence of how bad it can go when untrained or as Jeff said when they just don't care.

I guess they guy didn't have a roll of plastic.

Chris Thanks for posting the pics. We are new to the roof cleaning business and have never seen the effects of carelessness. Dilution is really the solution.

 Every company has to establish repeat business and word of mouth, to make it. This guy aint going to last long.

Hit and run hacks are the worst.  Tough way to learn a lesson, but I always say it, you get what you pay for!!  I am sure the difference in price is not going to pay for new shrubs?

That's a shame.
However with all due respect Chris, it's not the number of men on the job that caused this, it's not caring what he was doing. We work 1 man jobs all the time [about 75%] We either tarp the plants or run good quality sprinklers constantly and since 1991 I have been called 1 time for plant damage and it was 3 small plants on that 1 job, which I replaced. That job was done with 2 men, myself and my son. If we can turn out a few hundred roofs a year with no damage, so can any other professional, willing to do what is needed to care for the customers plants and get up and down off the roof 4 times to make sure everything stays covered or is being hit with a sprinkler. It is also the reason why, I switched from a 5 gpm pump to 2 gpm [ and a tandem 2 gpm pump setup = 3gpm output] Those bigger pumps knock out jobs faster, especially with 3/4" hoses, but there is no comparison when it comes to run off. I try for very very little run off and I'm willing to spend an extra half hour - an hour more on a job to get that result. If a company is large enough to employ a 2nd man, that's fine, but it doesn't make other professionals, who do their job right with one man "hacks" But I think you know that.  biggrin
