The wife is getting a free estimate tomorrow for our 50 year old roof.
Seems that they blast it clean etc, etc, etc and "apply anti fungal wash,
two coats of UV energy saving paint and a resistant coating".
There is a bit of moss on the roof, and it is a bit.
I have my doubts.
I have seen a few of these roof painting/coating firms in action.
Nothing about the whole process was impressive. Watching a couple of blokes
stood on a roof presure washing the tiles before making the house look like
a piece of plastic did not impress me.
WTF is UV energy saving paint?
Some houses in a road near my parents have had their roofs cleaned.
They look really terrible. Bright clay faces with dark gunge left
up towards the overlap and around the edges. Like a really bad
automatic car wash which only cleans the middle of each body panel.
Just cancel. You know they are dishonest already.
There's no reason to deal with them any further at all.
Tell wife to go out too.

And *your* house has been "specially selected" to be a show
We have had similar offers; I just look across the street to where a wealthy
couple spent a fortune having their roof fully cleaned, treated etc.. After
3 years the moss was making a come back. People giving me a quote say, "Ah
we do it properly" but I know that the couple in question used the best
Moss, a very small amount of moss.
I have a jet washer but keep forgetting to blast it of.
I forget on purpose, my hose pipe is knackered and I am too tight fisted to
buy a decent new one.
BTW, we live in a bungalow.
