Did an estimate yesterday on this....local hotel on the main drag of town. Nice people. Hopefully they will give me a jingle to start the job.

Have 3 demos tonight ~ two of them are for national companies and the other is for a commercial Property Management Group. Wish me luck...

2010 Go Hard and Get Some :got-hooligan:

It is going to be cold tonight...35 degrees with wind gust up to 10-15 mph :eeeeeek:

99% of the roofs I do have moss on them. No brush needed. Just checking to make sure Carlos knows what he is getting into with moss. Last time I went into his neck of the woods I didnt see much moss growth.

Don't know what you all call it in your next of the woods but down the coast we call this algae. :yes:

Its moss. A pretty hearty moss at that. Gotta pretreat and wait a while before being able to remove with low pressure rinse.

Florin is right, kill it and low pressure wash if the rain does not remove it
