Hey there! First post on the site. I am CONSTANTLY on here, but I’m so tired of scouring trying to find the exact answer I’m looking for. So, here’s the situation and questions accordingly.
I have a customer that asked me to clean just the back portion of the metal roof on their house. Using my 12V, I can apply some SH (5%) or Percarb (Probably just SH and rinse rinse rinse), to get the black off. I offered a restoration service as well in the event that they need it which includes scrubbing and possibly some “on the roof” work since it’s a 6/12 and I’ll be using Cougar Paws and a Ridge Pro. I offered a wash for just the dirty portion, and a restoration for the entire roof. Customer wants a quote for both. It’s a 2500 sq ft roof. I haven’t seen anything but a roof breakdown and a drone shot of everything (I work with roofing contractors a good bit). If it doesn’t need a restoration and they choose that, I’ll let them know it doesn’t need it and just do the cleaning. Question. Pricing. What the heck should I charge for a restoration vs cleaning? I was thinking the cleaning would be around $0.50 sq ft and for restoration around $1.00? Also, I’m in Georgia (serving from South Atlanta up to NW Ga.) Anywho, if someone could chime in on the pricing.
Second. For the restoration, oxidation needs to be removed. From what I can tell, softwashsystems has a really good product, but I have used F-13 before and I’m familiar with it. Would it be correct to wash with SH first, then use F-13, then finish with Final Wash? I have used F-13 with some surfactant and scrubbing to to remove hard set mildew from gutters before, so maybe it would be just 13/ soap mix to get the roof cleaned then final wash to make it pop. Again, the hard work isn’t the problem at this point… it’s the price. What in the world should I charge since I haven’t ever done a full restore like this. Thank you all for all your input and I look forward to hearing what y’all say!
