Hi Kelly. I wasn't at the last Expo.
It's a great organization.


Chuck-Yeah, I really didn't know that. I try to be
safe and not have chemicals mix, but knowing
that information is going to make me even more careful!
Thanks

Jeff,

I have only fished a few times in my life.


My neighbor catches around 15-20 perch or trout every single day. He
is constantly gutting fish.

 

Erie is one of the best places around to catch Steelhead.

 

Picture of a kid who caught a PA Record Steelhead fish

a few miles from my shop!

lol.
I didn't realize how good the fishing is until googling Erie steelhead fishing etc.
I do know that Elk Creek is good for Steelhead though. I was in that area and saw some
guys walking out with some monsters.

What do you think about these pics.

Any tips on this particular one. Especially the side

were the shingles are.  1/2 muratic to 1/2 water?

First I would pressure wash the soot etc off.

Then try 50/50 on the rust and adjust up or down as needed. The darkest part may need 4 coats, but you only leave it on a minute, so it won't take long.

Thanks Chuck,
That sounds like a plan.
Any tips/tricks for protecting the shingles?

If the shingles have rust to remove, use 20-25% and rinse quicklt, before the acid disolves the granules. If you just need to protect the shinngles from being hit by acid, tape it off woth plastic or keep water running on the shingles throughout the proceedure.

The more fragile the surface with rust on it, the weaker the mix you start with and the shorter time you leave it.

On a concrete driveway, 10 minutes is usually ok, if necessary. On stucco [softer cement] a minute or so. On shingles 20 seconds etc.

You can always up the % or leave it longer the 2nd time, but if you eat up the surface with acid-by being in a hurry- there's no turning back!

Here is one I have coming up in November. Caused by a shallow, Florida Well sprinkler system. Mixture of algae and rust.

 Here is a "Tip", get that picture of the pressure washing device, and you using it on a roof, OFF of the front page of your website, before you scare off any more customers!

Once you get a reputation for cleaning roofs with a pressure washer, your competitors will have a field day with you. Welcome to the RCIA, we are glad you are here. Please don't embarrass us with pictures of pressure washers being used on roofs.

There is a link from this Forum to your website. That picture reflects on all of us. I sugggest a before and after roof cleaning picture to replace it with, or just use the RCIA Logo instead.

For rust on shingles and siding I use Oxalic Acid.

 That's what I started out using too, back in 1989, but I found Muriatic acid and Sulferic Acid to be better in the long run.

Oxalic Acid is too slow and too hard to adjust for me.

Thanks for the info Chuck.
We had some old chimneysaver that had never been used.
The guys tried it to see.....it didn't work well at all.
The muriatic acid worked real well though.

Gutterdog, I don't own the logo, and didn't come up with it.
There are a lot of companies using the logo. My last name
is Brink. That's why it says Brink's above the logo. The other
companies should have there last name above it also. It's
not a franchise.

Ya, it took me a few years of messin' around with powders and products, to learn that muriatic acid-used with some care- will outdo them all.

 Hard to adjust? I just did one where their air unit in the attic dumped out on the side of the house on the second floor roof. The siding and shingles had red rust. A simple hand full of oxalic in a gallon pump up did it in 30 seconds it was gone. No where close to as nasty as those acids. Why kill a fly with dynamite when you can do it with the snap of a towel?

I used the F9 Barc that Craig sells on pwi on a nasty roof stain. It was a deep stain from a bleeding chimney cap. Mixed it 2 parts water to 1 and my guy said he never saw anything work so good. Its a pricy product but worth it.

Excellent.  I like having

multiple options to try.  We used the

muriatic acid.  I have before and after pictures.

I'll try to find them.  Thanks for the tips.
