What way would you solve this? Is it enough with just a roof mix on this?
I just want to know what kind of ladder that is.
Hehe, its my uncle on a job… It looks for me that its an old aluminum ladder
It seems its gone through a bit hard life… but its a typical old “local” ladder. Or at least made in Europe, the Germans have made some great ladders over the years… This is northern Europe…
It looks like asphalt shingle… Would it be possible to use low low pressure with a PW?
I mean you could just use a roof mix during the winter months and people will wonder if it snowed when they see. I would think a roof that bad is most likely in need of replacing rather than cleaning. But yeah you could rinse it after using the roof mix and some people even scrape the moss off before the cleaning either way taking the moss off before it’s ready isnt the best for the roof.
Thanks man! You know, this roof is only about 5 years old… Budget on this build got cut a bit on the roof part. But its completely normal over here to get roofs heavy with moss like this… They can get much worse… So a cleaning is whats needed this round… but hey, why not if getting a regular customer every 3 years or so
When watching youtube videos from FL, CA etc in the states… Where many just make a simple roof mix to get some black stuff away from the roof… and done deal… yeah, not that easy over here
Ask @Nashvillewash to show you some pictures of roofs in the Pacific Northwest.
Beautiful carpet up there, I would take my wife up there for a sunset . A 50/50 mix should take care of that, plenty of soap for cling and come back couple months later. You will be surprised.
That could be a solution if the customer is okay with not getting instant results… Will forward this solution
Of course I didnt take pics of the worst ones. Last month I had one so bad the forest service tagged them due to fire season. They had to have it fixed or face huge fines! I literally rolled off moss like sod. 4-6" thick!
@NorVik 3-4% with plenty of thick soap will do it first shot. I would leave it up there too, no rinse. It will come off in the next rainy season. Push for an annual maintenance and those are simply downstreaming (pulling straight sh).
So once a year after your initial cleaning with a good roof mix you’ll just go up and hit it with a good downstream mix and it keeps it clean? That’s pretty cool honestly! Probably pretty quick to do and dont have to worry about plants as much so easy money
Yes, exactly. Its fast and easy. I try to put on a quarterly gutter cleaning and do it on one of those. Its an easy up sell. The charge on maintenance is usually 20% of a full roof service and it stays in good shape.
