    Hi,
    Looks a good job. What did you use. Chemical spray, leave and rinse with tap water?

    use a chemical that i got from local supplier thats better than the normal ones that everyone uses, the dilution for it is 100ml per 5lts for heavy duty cleaning like that conservatory roof, or 25ml per 5lts for general cleaning.

    and then scrubbed and washed down with pure hot water from the van.

    [SIZE=10.5pt]Are you sure that chem you used did not contribute/cause that staining? [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=10.5pt]Reason why I'm asking RC as I've done a few roofs in my time and stains happen to run down old plastic not across in patches like I see in those pics. :Image3:[/SIZE]

    No it's the age of the plastic roof the white plastic was the original from when it was built, the darker ones are replacements with lead staining on it, they said the roof hadn't been clean for years,

    The yellowing on the old plastic it caused by the sun discolouring it and the white is where it was covered by lichen and protecting the roof from sun. you can see this if you flick between the before and after pics

    It's not a try, even someone with your knowledge and age should know how plastics discolour in the sun! And the different quality of plastics out there.
