Bad pw job

This guy called wanting to know if I could fix this! His son in law “helped” him out, told him he could save him money if he did it. The homeowner already ad my card from a neighbor but let his son in law talk him out of it!!! Lol. What choices do I have here if it can be fixed? Any chems that will work or would you have to wash every inch like concrete? Thanks

No.

Not every homeowner is intelligent enough to be your customer. Refer him to the guy in your network who specializes in replacement siding installation.

Wow, that’s something I would expect from a 5 year old, LOL. Interesting to see what the pros will say. I would say your probably going to have to dip and brush every square inch with something like Bob’s F13. Since high pressure did that I wonder if you can pressure wash each row with high pressure like a deck. Lets us know what happens if you decide to do it.

Unless he’s willing to pay you a decent amount of money and maybe even some upfront money, this headache probably won’t be worth it. He should have called you the first time and now he wants you to fix his son in laws disaster that he signed off on.

Personally I wouldn’t touch that job because you won’t get paid Enough for the amount of elbow grease your going to need to maybe fixed 80-90% of the problem. If you do take it on you may want to do a test area first and then see how it looks AFTER it dries which once again is time consuming cause you will have to go back and forth a few times to make sure job came out right in the end.

To be blunt-- If it was me- I would do exactly what Tim said above to do.

Thanks for the info! I hate it because he is my old pastor. Wish I could fix for him but like you guys I don’t have the time to commit to this project. Thanks again

F-13 and a brush will remove the oxidation from the vinyl but you need to brush the whole house. We did one that was 2100 sq ft and I charge him 1100.00 for it. Came out great.

Really only bad on two sides front has slot of windows and back has a covered deck. So maybe it is doable!!

Hey Brian I didn’t catch the part he was your old pastor-- since that is the case why not try what the guys are saying above then? Maybe do a small sample and then tell your old Pastor to call you a day or so later to see if he’s happy with the results and then decide how much you want to charge and then go from there?

I think I am gonna give it a whirl, it’s not a very big house anyway. Thanks for the help. since I y’all here do you guys think this overflow plant watering spill can come out? The concrete is only a couple years old.

How many man hours did it take ruffly? Did you use a gutter brush or something harder?

I think that’s great. With a work ethic like that I think you will go far in this business. Let us know how it turns out. I think I’m going to surprise and do the front of a customer’s house when I get back from the convention. Her father just passed away a couple of weeks ago.

That Sean is a great idea that comes from the heart and good deeds never go unnoticed. There is no price that can compare to actually helping someone out who lost something that “Money” can’t ever buy back:) You’ll forget the 1000’s of house washes you do over the years but stuff like this you never forget.

Ditto!! Amen

Took us 4 hrs. Done by lunch and used a gutter brush. Did 10x10 foot sections and would rinse after

What chemicals did you end up using, thanks

So were you ever able to get this to look nice again?

My neighbor did the same exact thing trying to save $$ … Now his house stands out like a sore thumb. Feel bad for him.

Never did it, they didn’t want to pay enough to fix the problem.
