  1. Sponsor Marketing Program

    Hey I think it's a great idea also! Do we get discounts for each add? Some contractors run numerous ads at the same time. I currently have four running that mention power washing and deck restoration.
  2. Sponsor Marketing Program

    Hey Russell, Can you show us an example of one that someone has sent in to you that is qualified?
  3. I don't like them either. If you don't get up on a ladder how will you know if everything has been washed out? How do you remove sticks and other junk like tennis balls in the downspouts?
  4. About Roof-A-Cide

    Roof-A-Cide™ is the only EPA approved algaecide / fungicide specifically designed and approved for use on roofs. I don't know anything about roof-A-Cide and it may be an oustanding product but I've never used it. I do know that the EPA does not approve products or processes. If I'm incorrect, please fax me a copy of this statement from the EPA. fax 301 353 1677
  5. Expert advice needed

    Thanks Beth, I found one place in PA on ebay but I couldn't find a website for them. I really think I'm going to end up getting a van with a lift. Then mount another small 5gpm hot water rig inside it.
  6. Expert advice needed

    Thanks Beth, that sounds like the place Mathew told me about a while back. Let me know if you find the link and I'll see if I can find it also. I'm just tired of renting lifts. Last month I spent about $1,500 on lift rentals. I don't need or use them often but if I had one, I'd use it all the time! They would be awesome for roof cleaning, roof repairs and ice dam removals. They would also be really nice for some of the complexes we clean gutters on.
  7. Expert advice needed

    9gpm?? Hmm I like that MORE POWER thing..lol Stainless steel frame would also be pretty too but I'm planning on getting a box truck in the spring. Why make it pretty if no one's going to see it. I'm also thinking about getting a utility body truck with a 40' lift built in it, I just can't decide. I wish someone made a box truck with a 40' lift, then it would make my choice easier. I like having my equipment sheltered from the weather because we work in the rain a lot. Another concern is theives or vandals.
  8. Xjetting HD80 and F18 max

    I have to agree with Russell and Beth.. Using these agents full strength through an x jet is REALLY risky. It makes it to airborn and you don't know where it's going to float. If it lands on pumps or cars it could be a really nasty situation. You should use a deckster or shurflow pump in a situation like this. You still have to be careful with the spray but it's a lot more controlled in this application.
  9. Staring with Home Depot's Excell 3700psi

    I'm not sure what negative comments Mike is talking about, maybe someone edited out a post or something. He is right about a lot of people starting out with a machine like that. I baught a couple of them 2 years ago just to finish a large contract job and we still use them. I've got two Home Depot Machines mounted in two of my vans right now. Another van has a deckster sprayer and a cold water unit mouned in it. Today, I just purchased another Chevy that I'll use for a trailer rig and I may mount one in that too..lol I made my suggestions based on experience and what works well for me and I suggest you do the same. Take a look at the options and do what's best for you. If you have any questions you also welcome to give me a call.
  10. Staring with Home Depot's Excell 3700psi

    Why don't you buy yourself a small cold water machine and mount it in the back of a pickup truck. Then you can get hose reels and long hoses that will stop you from having to lift it out of the truck all the time. Before buying a power washer, check out the article on power washers on the bottom of this page.
  11. House washing in the cold

    I would just wait until the temps warm up a few more degrees. Sometimes that happens with hot water also. You also have to be careful that hot water doesn't come in contact with cold windows, it can crack them! I'm thinking about making some snow in my yard a day or so before christmas... Who else has tried it and how well does it work? Come on, I know I'm not the only guy to think of this!
  12. Expert advice needed

    That sounds like a pretty good deal to me... My biggest concern though would be maintenance. If you know how to work on machines then good, if not. You might want to find a local source to buy from.
  13. Do you have Harry Potter fans in your house?

    We went to the 11:50am showing so I could get back to the office and take care of some work. The movie was great and the kids had a blast.
  14. Do you have Harry Potter fans in your house?

    Hey Beth, I'm taking my kids to see it tomorrow also. Were going to the Germantown theatre, no set time though. Just when I can get them together and finished with their chores.
  15. Yet another post about service stations!

    F-18 is a great product and I've used it for stripping decks in the past but, I would use Concrete Cleaner, I think it would work better in this situation. I used some a few weeks ago and it really did a nice job. Concrete Cleaner is sold at Sun Brite
