    Hey, got my first conny roof to clean, any tips from you experienced guys on doing this trad? Is it just a case of ladder and ext pole? or are there any trade secrets to make my life easier?

    What do you do with the virosol in terms of getting the roof glass clean or is it just for the frames. Explain please. I just run a brush over mine connected to a hose as don't really go for conny roofs & my custies are happy with that (prob coz I only charge a tenner) but have quite a few custies asking & have read about this virosol but don't really no anything about it.

    hose, extension pole with a brush into the bucket, scrub the roof from a ladder , then hose again, but always use the hose on a sprinkler type setting and let it fall down on the roof, conny roofs are never that watertight and are known to spring leaks if blasted directly

    I find it great on PVC but with cony roofs it seems to make the plastic really dull, so if you do use it to lift the muck off the roof, use Ecover or something like that afterwards
