    Scott, thanks for the info, I will be sending him the info tonight. Just curious, because I know he will ask, how much dish soap do you use? Any certain brand?


    Also, do you have to do any type of scrubbing? Or do you just rinse it off?

    no scrubbing, just apply and some don't rinse. It'll come off in the rain.

    soap; I use whatever is cheap, about 1/2 cup to the full mix

    Hey, scott just wanted to say thanks, I got asked about pressure washing a roof a couple of weeks ago. I checked this post and then searched the forum for it. I am not geared up for pressure washing anything, much less a roof. When I got out to look at the roof I realized it was a type of wood roof that had lichens growing on it along with big dark stains. I would have had to pass on it because of the libiality issue, but I also enlightend the owner as to the condition of the roof and having anyone pressure wash it. I also looked at the other site you and Berry are members of it had some usefull info. as well.

    Thanks
    Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

    oh, wood shingled roofs are big money makers. I've never done one but would assume it's just like doing a log cabin or very similar.

    I don't use a pw on a roof,,, anymo,,, those days are gone. Here's what I use now.

    I too love my Delavan.

    I've never restored a wood shake roof but I hear its similar to restoring a deck as far as chems used and washing technique. After cleaning it would need sealed for protection.

    Wood shake roofs are beasties! Good money to be made but it's considerably more labor intensive than asphalt!

    Note on the soap that you mix with bleach/chlorine - DO NOT USE AN OXYGENATED BLEACH SOAP - plain old dishsoap.
