    Looks more akin to an eco hobbits roof than good ol diamond white.
    Not looking for the best, doesn't have to have essence of himalayan albino pygmy bees.
    Cheap and works sufficient.
    Even better if involves little effort(lazy sod) :thumbup:
    Either that or i'll start grazing :sheep: on it

    Suggestions please peeps?

    Was a thread recently about roof cleaning making it difficult to sell properties.

    Yes
    No pressure washer, will be a brush and a rainy day.
    Previously used tfr in conjunction with pressure washer, never tried with just a bucket of water....

    Jant A9 wheel cleaner.
    Put it on with a hand pressure sprayer. As soon as you have finished putting it on start washing it off again. Hose will be fine.

    If you are any wear near Frome I have got some algicide that you can spray over once its clean. Keeps the green stuff away for at least a year..

    Along time since had to remove green stuff and for the life of me can't remember if used anything special before.
    Not a fan of washing vehicles.

    Thanks for offer, unfortunately being north of the border your aim would have to be exceptional :laughing:

    Bit of g3 and a rag round a brush head ideally with a telescope handle , like a caravan cleaning brush , or cable tie a stick to a soft nylon brush and off you go , bucket of warm soapy water and a squirt of g3 , or the likes .
    I used to do the sides of my lorry that way , it soon gets to be hard work but the results were great . dont do it on a sunny day , cloudy and cool works the very best.

    if its had a quick blow over it gets tricky though you soon find out who didnt prep the roof .

    I thought it was a van you could stand up in , as in , low semi and high top , In the old days there were horrid fibre glass conversion kits , now that is going back a bit.

    Don't see the point of a van you can't stand up in.
    All mine have been hi-top.

    And yeah.
    Easier than writing lwb/mwb/lwb/xlwb/xxlwb hi-top. :)
