Chris Tucker describes how to do roof cleaning
Permalink  
 


On August 11th, I had the opportunity to visit with Chris Tucker of Apple Roof Cleaning.  He let me ride along in his truck and here is the video I took.  Chris describes how he cleans roofs.  By the way, it is not a Hollywood production, just real life.

Thanks for spending the time with me Chris.

Here is a link the complete Playlist Roof Cleaning with Chris Tucker

Each individual video

OK.... Chris, you've been doing the a long time, and the videos are of great quality, but with the 50 point standards in mind:

 

1) I didnt see one piece of safety equipment, no safety goggles, respirator, or even gloves.

2) I see a guy walking backwards on a roof, numerous times....

3) the ladder is leaning directly on the gutters without a standoff...

Just a couple of examples....

Once we reach 20 years of experience, can we just do away with the safety stuff?

I  doubt very highly a 50 point standard is being upheld by anyone here,Ha,Ha,...Chris just happens to be on film is all. I am not an RCIA member,..just a guest,.and I do not even know what the 50 points are,... nor do I care,...but I guarantee ya' I'm probably not even holding up to a small number of them,..and my business is just fine without them.

well a stabilizer bar and a mask are just plain common sense. If you care about yourself and the homeowners property you should use both. Safety glasses are only going to protect your eyes and the mask will help you keep your lungs,but hey who needs em right. I personally will not get on a ladder without a stabilizer bar,also why risk beating up the homeowners gutters or having the ladder slip and then you fall. Its just good business practice.

 4) Diverting the mix coming out of the gutter onto the lawn to soak in?

(and that fence on the side of the house took a beating with the run-off)

BINGO JEFF! goodpost

I bet if we secretly filmed anyone pushing the ridiculous 50 point standard, you wouldn't find 15 points being followed. { Ridiculous to me }

Of course, if you claim to adhere to this 50 point standard, you should be doing all 50 all the time or don't claim it.

It should have been a 5-10 point standard in the 1st place.

Then maybe there would be 5-10 important things to use as a guideline and we could have remembered half of them?

What do 50 point guys do, carry a notebook with the 50 points listed?

Who could remember all 50 without it written in front of you?

Not me!

If I had to wear a mask and goggles all the time, I'd quit roof cleaning and go back to being a brain surgeon, like I was before, working in air conditioning with my mask on!

I know what your thinking and I only practiced on myself 2 times - if I remember correctly? yawn Where was I now? confuse Oh, ya! biggrin - ? Now I remember!

Ain't no customers going to stand there and read no 50 points, nor check to see if you are doing all 50.

This of course is my opinion and maybe there are some who do all 50 all the time?

If you do, I am not talking about you. biggrin

I do remember a picture of AC in a space suit, Mask, Goggles, Jock Strap [maybe not the goggles?] cleaning a roof, but if a homeowner saw a guy in that getup on their roof, they would probably assume he was spraying a poison gas and that THE END OF THE WORLD was at hand! awwA bit much? Hey, I am only a simple man! biggrinbiggrin

In my attached photo, you will se I am wearing my safety hat. I am losing quite a bit of hair at 63 and I'm trying to protect whats left! blankstare

 Our ladders are carried on the sides of Flatbed Trucks, and stabalizer bars tend to drag the ground, hit mailboxes, etc, etc. Plus, we don't work from ladders, we get on the roofs.

Fat People (like me) and maybe you, tend to bend gutters, but my Son is not a fat ass like his Dad, and he has  NEVER hurt a gutter. The trick is to place the ladder right where there is a gutter bolt, and not on an unsupported piece of the gutter biggrin

Or better yet, go up where there are NO Gutters, quite common here in Florida.

We carry eye wash, ALL of us. You can't see it, but it is in our pockets. As far as respirators go, we wear them when we do tile roofs. Remember, it is HOT here in Florida, and we work WITH the wind, not against it.

We use WEAK chemical strength, not excessively strong solutions, did you notice my Son going over the roof again and again ? 

95 percent of the time, we hold ladders for each other. We trust each other to hold a ladder far more then some stabalizer bar that has seen zillions of chemicals.

 The customer was told the old weathered wood fence might take an hit, and I offered to Tarp it for him. he asked what the chemicals would do, and I said "Clean it". What was not on video is my Son cleaning that whole part of the fence, like the customer wanted.

There are 4 videos, and I have not watched all and every part of them yet. What are you asking about, and what video is it in ?
