No New Posts Marketing Feedback- What works for you? (Preview)
I was hoping to get some feedback in regards to marketing. What works and what does not. How much of your business do you get from online marketing- website, google seo, etc? How about door hangers and yard signs while working on a job in the neighborhood? Do postcard mailing work for you? Any success st...

No New Posts Winter roof repair tips
Summer is the busy season for roofers. There’s no better time to install or repair a roof than when the weather is mild. Unfortunately, roofing emergencies still pop up throughout the winter as well. In fact many roofing problems that went unnoticed through the summer are discovered when the winter...

No New Posts Asbestos Tile Roof Cleaning (Preview)
How does one go about cleaning an asbestos tile roof? This roof is almost 70 years old and I believe it has asbestos in it. It is legal to get this roof power washed? The roof was originally light gray, now it is covered in mold, mildew, lichens, dirt, and algae and it has basically turned black. Is there a s...

No New Posts Inspecting your roof? Don’t forget the flashing
It’s your roof’s job to protect your home from the elements. But one element in particular is more difficult to control and that’s water. Your roofing system can’t keep out water without flashing. While any homeowner knows what a roofing shingle is, many are unfamiliar with flashing and consequent...

No New Posts When does a tile roof need to be cleaned
I live in a developer controlled HOA and they frequently ask for the barrel tile roofs to be cleaned.  It seems they want the older homes to look "brand new" when a potential buyer comes by. So a question. Is there any standard for when a barrel tile roof needs to be cleaned?  Measurable de col...

No New Posts Solution rusting nails?
What is everyone's response to a customer when they ask "will the chemicals make the nails holding the tiles on rust and break off?" ?Better than vibrating the nails out and cracking tiles with a pressure washer? ?The nails are far enough under the tiles that the chemicals won't reac...

No New Posts cheap pressure washer
Just wondering if you used a cheap pressure washer to spray the roofs instead of the pumps we normally use. The flow would be less but the pressure would be way better for reaching the high spots on roofs. If the washer was flushed out well after each use how long would it last.

Spray Wash Exterior Cleaning has been selected to clean the tile roofs and clean out the gutters on the Super 8 motel in Tallahassee, Florida.

No New Posts Summer heat a real threat to roofers
With record setting temperatures across the nation lately, many are urging people to stay indoors as much as possible. But for people in the construction industry, the outdoors is their office and staying home isn’t an option, at least not if they want to earn income. Of all the construction workers...

No New Posts Foaming the mix
Probably a crazy idea, would an air inlet help in the foaming process. By that I mean something as simple as a pinhole in the hose coming from the tank to the pump. This would allow air to be sucked into the mix and cause it to foam a bit. What do you guys think?
