Bob Blanchette

“I was in the home remodeling business for over 30 years. I had just landed a job for a new roof, and the homeowner wanted to shingle over the existing roof, but there was moss and lichen on it. He said I could use his power washer to remove all that. I was thrilled with the way the roof looked and with not having to deal with permits, licenses, sub-contractors, inspectors, no trips to the improvement stores,” said Bob Blanchette, who has been operating Roof Washing Services for four years.
