PostSubject: Home Made Roof Treatment   Tue Sep 02, 2008 10:50 pm

"Hillbilly" Roof Mold Prevention That Works!

One day, several years ago, we got a call from an elderly lady.

Her grand son was in the auto detail business.

She told me only part of her roof needed cleaning, because her grandson had "went up there" several years ago and "treated" part of it.



To my surprise, the area of roof under a tree, and facing north SHOULD have been dirty, but was not!



Of course, I cleaned the whole roof, but I asked her for her grandsons number.



He used a generic Armor All type stuff to put on the roof.



Curious, I found where to get this cheap Armor All Knock off, and had a "Hillbilly Moment"



WHY not mix some copper sulfate IN with the Armor All type stuff, and so I did!



Guess what, IT WORKS!



Before we stumbled upon what we are NOW using, we have mildew proof all kinds of stuff with our :Hillbilly Mixture:



The roof MUST be completely rinsed, preferably by rain or the Chlorine residue will fight the treatment.



Here is the "theory" to support this "discovery".



The armor all type stuff

"protects" the copper sulfate from being completely rinsed away by the rain.



Therefore, what we have indeed created is a time released Hillbilly Copper Sulfate Delivery System!



We NOW use a system that is Proprietary to our company that is mixed right in with our cleaning chemical.



But I assure everyone that this crude, "hillbilly concoction" works.



The PROBLEM with most treatments is that they are soon rinsed away, leaving a roof unprotected.



The "trick" is to offer a "sacrificial lamb" to keep the copper sulfate from being rinsed away!



What we are looking for in this "sacrificial lamb" is SOMETHIG that will last for a while, yet degrade over time, in effect releasing the copper sulfate, or another biocide in a "time release" fashion.



So, while I will not tell WHAT Apple Roof Cleaning uses, I have just given the "secret" to keeping surfaces free of mildew.



Mildew proofing is another service one can offer, and this works, and works well.



Since we went to what we are now using, we stopped "development" on our "discovery"



So Guys, use your heads, and see what is cheap we can come up with to "time release" the copper sulfate ?



There are other biocides besides Copper Sulfate, but it is cheap and very effective.

So is Zinc Sulfate, and there are many others.



Enjoy!



Chris

I've been wanting to ask someone about this: I have heard too many times that you have to have a special license to aply copper sulfate. Any truth to that?

Hey Chris,

Do you think a house wax product would work or not the longevity we need?

Yeah David, what is needed is something the algaecide will dissolve in, and then last a year or so on the roofss.
I THINK I found my old chemical advisors phone number ?
WELCOME Bro !!!

Chris I saw once you coated a customers roof a white elasometric roof coating you get from Home Depot.

Did you have to prime the roof first with tar or no?

I am thinking of coating my roof before next summer to help with it's longevity and the heat. It's a black shingle roof and it soaks up a lot of heat.
