Roof cleaning info.
Permalink  
 


Anyone tell me where I could find good information on roof cleaning and the facts behind the algae on the roof and what it is doing to the roof. 

 

I have a potential client that insists that cleaning the roof does nothing for it. And that he has had roofs last for 20 years that have had Algae on them.

 

He wants me to send him some information on why he should have the roof cleaned. I downloaded a PDF fromthe ARMA but I am sure there has to be something better out there.

Are you really going to try and beat this guy on the head with algae-on-the-roof facts? Sounds like this guy could care less. You could line up 5 more jobs before you convince this guy to clean his roof.

Well, actaully what it is; is he is a big realtor here in town and has a lot of cleaning that needs to be done here in town. As I was talking to him about the cleaning on some of his commercial work I had mentioned that we do roof cleaning. Well...the first thing out of his mouth was that roof cleaning is a myth and does no good for the roof blah blah blah....as I explained to him some simple facts about roof cleaning he became interested and asked me if there was infact a scientific study on what I was telling him and he then had asked me to send him the link and some information out to him. Now on my site along with a lot of sites here there is great info but of course we are all salesman. He wants to see something like what ARMA would put out. And I do have the PDF that they put out but with a hard sell like this one the guy will read that its just temporary and he would then probably walk away. 

 

His jobs would land me some nice contracts.

Thanks for the help

Sorry if we rained on your parade. Just kinda seemed like you were going to waste time for the sake of convincing someone who didn't care. If the guy is a realtor I can see him not caring about extending the life of a roof. But it should be a no-brainer when it comes to eliminating the roof as a potential impediment to a closing. Can't tell you how many roofs I've cleaned because the realtor suggested. I'm surprised this guy is considered the "big realtor" in town.

If you are loaded with work, maybe forget him. If not, I say it may be worth the time to supply him with information?
I sent you to my info, did you read that? There is info that should interest this Realtor toward the end up my writeup. http://roof-cleaning-institute.activeboard.com/t41138504/englewood-florida-certified-roof-cleaning-safe-soft-no-press/

You Bet! Heck in 60 or 70 hours of web browsing, you could save the $100.00 it costs to join RCIA!

And you could have 1/2 the information there is to be had, right here on the "Premium" side of RCIA.

I guess if you have no work and no $100.00 that's what you would have to do.

Of course, it may cost you hundreds, if some of the info you get off the "web" is dead wrong and lots of it is!

You need to define temporary for him, around here it can be 3-5 years, more than long enough to give curb appeal for a sale.

You should be able to tell him the information he needs to know on whats going on up there yourself, not handing him info on it that you got from some one else! Walk the walk and talk the talk! Also become a premium member instead of just taking info " that will get you tons of work "! No one has ever asked me for proof after I told them what was going on up there.......If I ever read this from you... "Anyone tell me where I could find good information on roof cleaning and the facts behind the algae on the roof and what it is doing to the roof". I'd find another roof cleaner, I mean come on!

Don't kill your time by dealing with a sceptic, just tell him if he is a realtor that cleaning a roof will improve curb appeal and it will as a bonus extend the life in the roof. It is easier to sell a house with a new looking clean roof than an algae moldy covered roof.

I agree, if showing him before and after pictures doesn't convince him a property will sell more easily and giving him a decent explanation, you may as well forget it. Most all of the real estate places use me to prepare homes to sell.

Explain to the gentleman that by keeping the roof clean he will have less troubles in a long run, I 've seen neglected roofs and trust me it's not something plesant
