Authorized Applicator Pacific Exterior Santa Cruz Ca

As a certified applicator of F9 BARC, from Front 9 Restorations – the most effective cleaner available – we can remove rust, battery acid, fertilizer stains and more – greatly improving the appearance of nearly any surface.

Traditional techniques and cleaners marketed as rust removers leave marks on concrete and don’t remove stains completely. Acids can be somewhat successful but are often dangerous to work with and can also cause damage.

Our professional technicians are trained to recognize different stain types and their source. Using F9 BARC, along with professional cleaning equipment, we can remove stains and ensure an even finished appearance – all without causing surface damage.

Stains that are common to driveways, and various paved surfaces include orange battery acid and fertilizer stains. Orange battery acid stains look similar to rust stains, but they are completely different in nature. Rust does not usually seep more than 1/16” deep into concrete, whereas orange battery acid stains penetrate far deeper into the slab. F9 BARC is the first cleaner capable of removing orange battery stains, as well as rust and fertilizer stains.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the black stains?

The black stains are caused by cyanobacteria frequently referred to as algae (Gloeocapsa Magma) that feeds on organic material (Typically crushed limestone) now used in composition roof shingles. Algae growth on roofs occurs to varying degrees in all regions of the country, especially those subjected to warm humid conditions.

The Monterey and San Francisco Bay Areas have a particular problem with dirty roofs due to the consistent marine layer that often covers the coast and certain inland areas. Nearly all types of roofing are susceptible to staining and discoloration. It is, of course, most visible on lighter colored roofs and less visible on darker shades of roofing.

Will cleaning my roof really save me money?

Yes. Cleaning your roof can save you money in more ways than one...

  • First, the algae and fungus that grows can cause premature roof granule loss, and shorten roof shingle life. So you save money because your roof lasts longer
  • Second, when the algae turn your roof black, it becomes less reflective, and it retains heat; If you use an air conditioner it has to work harder to overcome the increased heat load, costing money in electric bills.
  • Third, the aesthetics of cleaning your roof when it comes to selling your home can not only save you money but can make you money too.

Do I need to do anything before you come?

It would be appreciated if you could do a few things the night before we come out to do the roof cleaning service:

  • Move all lawn equipment, furniture and/or toys inside or away from the building.
  • Keep all animals inside or out away from the home.
  • Put any special plants out away from the house (if possible.)
  • Park vehicles on street or in the garage.

Pretty much just clear everything out away from around the house. We will be rinsing areas around the building during the treatment.

How noisy is it?

We almost exclusively use equipment no louder than a whisper. Occasionally we use a compressor for large commercial projects.

Do you have references?

Yes. We have many happy customers who would love to share their roof cleaning experience with you, Most likely, some in your neighborhood. Please feel free to request a list by e-mail.

Are you insured?

Yes, we are properly insured and send proof of current insurance out with all proposals. All employees are covered by workers compensation insurance. We are registered with the DIR for governmental work and prevailing wage jobs.
