Equipment for Starting up
Permalink  
 


Dear Colleagues in The Roof Cleaning,

If you are starting up where budget is of a concern, since you are still building up clients(minimal sales). What are the best equipments in terms of cost, reliability, mobility.

  1. For Pump? (12volt or gas pump)
  • Also what size of hose is good?
  • Whats is better a nozzle or a wand(how long)

I welcome your suggestion. Regards!

I think it would be better for you to pay the membership dues. Then use the search button. You are asking a lot of questions. It takes a lot of reading and time to learn the trade of roof cleaning. Most of us here started this way.

Art is correct. Its not to offend you Joel. There are a lot of roof cleaners in Canada where the trade is growing. If you stick around for a while the answers will come to you. Everyone is different. Different budgets, business models, demographics. Its best to take a few weeks of reading and not to force your answers.
I understand you only have a narrow window of opportunity to get these roofs clean. Its been tough in New Jersey with the weather. We have a bit of work now but cant get it done with the bad weather. Last year in 2012 we worked the whole season with the mild weather. This year we weren't so lucky.

 You will receive full and total access to both forums. You will be permitted to post pictures of your work on both forums. you will be listed on the interactive map. And you will show people that you are serious about building a business and not just here to get info and run. The SEO you will gain from the 2--page rank 3 forums alone is worth over $1k by itself.

Along with all the other "perks" listed abovewinksmile

Well, there you have it. Diamond Roof Cleaning New Jersey
sent him to Pressure Tek. I certainly have no problem with Diamond Roof Cleaning, but after all the previous replies, that would benefit both RCIA and the Guest, his post seemed out of place. Not looking for a fight and I won't fight. I just don't see why Diamond Roof Cleaning New Jersey wants to pay higher fees at RCIA so that he can send those who could share in the considerable costs of running this site, over to PT ??? I don't get it? PT is great, bit it's a parts dealer and [ while he may know a lot about pumps etc] does not have 1 /100th the knowledge base we have at RCIA!!!!!

Chuck, I buy all my stuff from www.pressuretek.com. Ive been a member there for a minute but it's not my regular. People usually stay where they start and going to pt doesn't necessarily mean bailing here. Mike actually gave solid advice where to buy stuff, get it quickly, and good service behind it. Just saying brother..dont think Mike meant it like that.

 Not to mention unlimited access to Me biggrin 

I sell no pumps, chemicals, skids, I sell nothing but 20 years worth of roof cleaning knowledge, and the SEO opportunities on my 2 forums to put what we teach you here, into practice.

 I buy from PT myself. maybe I did take him wrong? Everyone else was pushing the Guest becoming a member and I felt that post derailed that thought?

I appreciate your input though. I have been wrong lots of times before! LOL
