But now, he is a cut throat.

We FINALLY "met up" with a guy here locally cleaning 2000.00 sq ft shingle roofs for 75.00 each.

Ran into him in a subdivision up in North Tampa.
Retired Military, out working for nothing.

Said he could really "care less" if he was ruining it for everybody.
Rationalized his actions with the excuse"There is plenty of work for everybody"
He had a Gas Powered Pump too, and a big tank.

Told me he got all his info where he bought his roof cleaning equipment at, and never even heard of me disbelief
He said he tried Pressure Washing, but found it "too competitive".

Is it just a matter of time with a guy like that in Fla. or can this go on indefinitely? Here in Jersey you can double those prices and I'll see you on the soup line come winter. Im not sure if my heart wants people like this to raise there price or if I'd rather see them fail just to say 'I told ya so'.

WOW!!! $75!!! That's not even enough to cover gas and chemicals. I found out there is a guy around here doing 1500 sq ft houses for $275, and that's way too cheap. The guy is a roofing contractor and doesn't even measure correctly, he goes off of living area. Don't worry, they will both be out of business before long. Jon

 Unfortunately, he gets about 2500 a month from Uncle Sam yawn

Now, he was a soldier, served our country, he deserves his pension. But he has an income coming in every month, roof cleaning is "beer money" for him.

 Tampa is home to MacDill AFB, lots of retired military here, and they AINT like this clown either.
