    I have done a roof once before and it did look amazing
    Plan is to pretreat with algon few weeks prior to clean 2 or 3 applications!
    Then low pressure clean top to bottom nice and slow!

    I would have thought a multi millionaire widow would consider to replace the roof depeding on its age and condition. Would certanly be easier and look better than trying to clean it that's for sure :rolleyes:

    Those telisopic pressure washer lance I think you are on about in my opinion are a total waste of time trying to use one for roof cleaning.

    Just because she's loaded dosent mean she needs to buy a new roof that's a little extreme
    I'll put it to her though!!
    Excuse me duck your loaded so what I would do is not bother cleaning everything instead replace the roof,gutters fascias and soffits and driveway!O and your windows are dirty so replace them to!:rolleyes:

    Yeah, don't bother with Jetmac. I have a Jetmac, the pressure washer is great but the customer service is pants. They sent the machine out with no instructions, and no oil (even though it was listed in the description). So I could have started it up without oil if I didnt check and burnt the thing out. My nozzle blew 2 of its washers about three weeks back so I sent a message to them asking if I could buy replacements and they didnt even bother to reply, sh*t really.
