I just read this and was wondering if GAF recommends this mix and some have told me differently I am not sure what best please give me some defection

.

 

 

2. If a new roof is not an option, GAF-Elk recommends cleaning the roof with a special mixture. That

 

mixture is: 4 gallons of water, 1 gallon of bleach and 1 cup of TSP (Tri-S Phosphate-or acceptable

 

phosphate-free substitute) found at many home centers. Apply this mixture with a garden sprayer, let sit on

 

the roof surface for up to 20 minutes, and rinse with low-pressure water. Be sure to protect any shrubs below.

 

Remember, the roof surface will become slippery when wet- be careful!!!

Hey Sal,.that mix would work but it would be a little weak for most contractors. You will see varying opinions on rinsing,..but many of us no longer rinse at all.

Don't get me wrong, it's good to look into your options,..but don't make it more complicated than it is,...the mix is the easy part of this business.
