Below are some of the most frequently asked questions that our customers ask us. Check out our responses and contact us with any further questions.
We will wash everything vertically from the roof lines and outside of the gutters down, removing all mold, mildew, dirt, and debris. We will not touch your house with a high pressure washer. Instead of pressure we use a proprietary blend of soaps and detergents to aid in the removal of those stains rather than just relying on the pressure. Next we will hand scrub the outside of your gutters to try and return them to as close to the original color as possible. Finally we rinse the entire home from top to bottom for a finished look.
The Trotta's Deck Restoration Solution involves power washing the entire wood deck to remove as much existing material as possible. Washing is done with a special chemical and the least amount of pressure possible so that there is no damage to the wood. Next, we'll apply a special deck brightener/neutralizer to bring wood back to new-like look. We will apply one coat, unless it's a horizontal surface. Horizontal surfaces receive two coats. We use a combination of hand brushing, spraying and back brush, CWF-UV5. This application comes with a 2 YEAR FULL WARRANTY!
During no-pressure roof cleaning, we apply a heavy dose of chlorine based chemical (by low pressure sprayer) combined with 3 different soaps and detergents to kill ALL mold, mildew, black streaks, green algae and moss. Fury moss may take up to 60 days to be fully gone. This application is the SAFEST way to NOT damage any asphalt shingles.
We begin by prepping concrete areas with an application of pre-treatment cleaner/house wash. Next, we use hot water high-pressure wash for ALL concrete using flat surface cleaners. Once completely dry, we'll apply 1 coat of Prosoco's Saltguard WB Clear Masonry Sealer by Pump Sprayer. Saltguard WB sealer will have no effect on the appearance of the concrete and last 8-10 years between applications. Periodic cleaning may be needed and will not affect the Saltguard WB.
We begin by prepping the concrete areas with an application of pre-treatment cleaner/house wash. Next, we use hot water to high pressure wash ALL concrete, using the flat surface cleaners.
