Our Honest Review Of Zinc Armor Roofing Strip

PROS

  • Environmentally-friendly and it’s not harmful to pets, plants or humans.
  • Can be placed on almost all roof types
  • Lasts over 15 years
  • Once installed does not require additional cleaning
  • Looks especially nice on the roof
  • Does a good job of removing algae and mold 

CONS

  • Requires skill to setup
  • Usually costs more initially due to the need to hire a professional to install it
  • Can’t remove all the issues you can have on your roof
People who own a home and who are looking for ways to get their mold and dirt problem removed from their roofs usually turn to the many products that are used by mixing them with water and spraying them on the roof.

While these methods are totally legit when it comes to effectiveness, well some more than others, there are also methods that are more cost-effective as they can serve you up to 20 years, depending on which products you use. We are of course talking about the Zinc armor strips that do require some skills to setup, but once you place it on the roof its guaranteed that you have made a decisive step towards eliminating mold, algae and other invasive factors on your roof.

This product is especially useful in areas where there is a lot of humidity and rain, and while the algae and moss require water to grow and multiply, the Zinc strips also function based on the amount of water that goes on them. Namely, if you place it on your roof the water that flows over them and down the roof gets enriched with the zinc and with its moss-destructive power it not only stops further multiplying of said problems but starts to remove them slowly if they are already present.

However, there is one downside towards using this fantastic product on all homes, and that is that it requires skill to set up. While you can always call a professional to set it up for you, you can also learn from the many videos and manuals how to do it but be advised that you can damage your roof while you are trying to place the Zinc strips if you don’t know what you are doing

Zinc armor can be used on almost any type of canopy and roof, of which some include concrete, wood, metal, asphalt, tiles, plastic and shingles.

If you ever hear that a roof was not cleaned properly by using this product, those who did the cleaning did a poor job. Or in other words, the label on the back was not followed by the user. Therefore the operator error was at fault for not cleaning the roof of the grime and other stains. The manufacturer guarantees that the product can outperform over 80% of other products on the market and it is even made from nature-friendly chemicals.

Why you should use ROOF WASH


ROOF WASH has several benefits that can help both new users and veterans of the roof cleaning businesses. One of the reasons that everyone should consider is the ease of use. The product has a simple 5 step plan that everyone can follow. Following up on that the main reason why everyone that wants to clean their canopy or is business that cleans roofs should use this product as it’s made from earth-friendly hydrogen peroxide materials and will not harm your roof, your plants, or your pets.

Using the solution is pretty simple, all you need to do is add 1/2 cup per gallon of water.

The cleaning process takes in two ways and you can either use the mixed solution before a storm so that mother nature can help you clean the roof if you want to minimize the potential damage done by pressure washers.

  • 40 lbs. can safely clean up to 40,000 sq. ft of the roof area and you could make an approximate 160 gallons of the solution with it.

Verdict


We deal with a lot of products when it comes to cleaning roofs, and we can safely say that this product does a pretty decent job. We do agree that for some heavy-duty cleaning needs it does come up short, however for what it was advertised it actually performs up to the standard. That means that if you have a mild problem with Moss, Lichen, Mildew or even Black algae spots you can safely use this product and remove the stains.

On the other hand, once a sure buildup of moss has been achieved it will either take several coats to remove the problem, or it will fail at its task. That is probably due to its nature-friendly ingredients as you can’t have your cake and eat it too. Which means that for people that need to perform some heavy-duty cleaning of a roof that has not been cleaned for a decade, you will need to get to the scrubbing part if you plan to only use ROOF WASH. All in all, a solid product that will be more than enough for 70% of households that want to clean their roof.

The big positive side of this product is that many homeowners have pets like dogs and cats, and if they want to clean their roof with another product they have to keep them inside for several days until the acids and other toxic chemicals get absorbed. This product does not have such an issue as it is environmentally friendly. This also means that you don’t have to watch out where the water from the cleaned roof lands as your plants won’t get poisoned by this product and wither away.

TruCleanEX Deck and Roof Cleaner Review

Our In-Depth Review Of TruCleanEX Deck and Roof Cleaner

PROS

  • Can easily restore natural color to the wood surfaces.
  • Removes every last part of black streaks, mildew, algae stains and more.
  • Amazing cleaning strength
  • Won’t harm grass
  • Does not require additional scrubbing
  • Won’t damage shingles 

CONS

  • Not biodegradable

  • Can damage painted surfaces
  • Needs to be rinsed thoroughly off after application
Now and then we get a new product in the roof cleaning market that slowly pops up and gets picked up by a roofing business and then suddenly is dominating the market and everyone has a gallon or two in their shed. Meet TruCleanEX Deck and Roof Cleaner the product that ever since it has popped up has been dominating the market with its unique cleaning power and its overall presence through sheer quality.

As we take a long hard look at the roof cleaning market, we can notice that there are two kinds of products when it comes to keeping the top of your house cleaned. The ones that are biodegradable and the ones that are not. Even though we prefer the biodegradable ones, we also understand that there are some situations where it’s more profitable to have the non-bio degradable ones as they indeed have a reliable power of cleaning and they can usually clean everything down to the last microbe.

The TruCleanEX Deck and Roof Cleaner is one such chemical and believe us when we tell you we have not seen a more potent compound that can clean anything it touches. However, you might want to keep it away from falling into your garden as it is not biodegradable and therefore it can damage your plants and also keep in mind how you dispose of it as you don’t want your pets sniffing it or licking it from the ground.

Why you should use TruCleanEX Deck and Roof Cleaner


When it comes to cleaning power, we highly recommend you try this product as it has absolutely exceeded our expectations. We have tried and tested many products, and we can say with certainty that this is one of the top three products when it comes to raw power.

You can use it on log cabins, patios, fences, tiles and grouts, gutters, shingles, glazed tiles and also terracotta roof tiles. Basically, you can use this on everything but, since it is a potent chemical, make sure to always test it on the surface but somewhere far from sight before you apply it to the whole thing. We also used it on wood, and it has restored the natural look of the wood like it was brand new.

It also works well on concrete which makes it perfect for not just cleaning roofs, but other outside areas of the home as well. It comes in several different packaging sizes which makes it perfect for both people that want to take a lot for their business and for people that want to clean their roof once. The packaging comes in three sizes:

  • 4x1 gallon
  • 1x5 gallons
  • 1x55 gallons

How to Use TruCleanEX Deck and Roof Cleaner


The TruCleanEX is a concentrate that dilutes 9:1 so it’s pretty strong but easy to mix. Since you can use it on different surfaces, there are many ways you can use it. The general application methods are:

  • Give it a good shake before mixing with water
  • Once mixed apply a generous coat to the surface you want to clean
  • Wait 10-15 minutes, and pressure wash it down with all the dirt and grime it has cleaned.
  • Rinse again, so you don’t miss any dried-up spots
However, if applied on wooden decks or roofs the procedure is a bit different:

– Use the mix as a spray and wait 10 minutes maximum before you start to wash it down.  That will give your wood the “looks like new” shine.

One more thing to keep in mind is that painted surfaces should be protected from the TrueClean as they can damage the paint on some materials. For further details check the back of the packaging.

Outside of the painted surfaces, this product can be used on almost all surfaces outside the house, including:

  • Pool Decks
  • Fencing
  • RVs
  • Roofs
  • Garages
  • Patios
  • Playground equipment
  • Pots
  • Driveways
  • Siding and more…

Verdict


When everything is said and done, everyone that is serious about removing every spec of dirt from their canopy will get this product. We highly recommend it to businesses that want to leave a lasting impression when they go to perform a roof cleaning job as every customer will be amazed at the sheer quality of work you will be able to complete using this product. Another reason why we would recommend this product is that it’s straightforward to use and that it does not require any additional use of other chemicals.

The TrueCleanEX Deck and Roof Cleaner is a potent concentrate that is designed to fight pollen, mildew, algae, stains from weathering, grease, grime, and can be used on virtually any outside part of the house. With so many products that we have reviewed, we rarely find a product that stands out from the rest, but we can safely say that this product belongs in that bin. The reports also say that over 80% of American homes have at one point used this product and that a huge chunk of that 80% still uses it for their roof cleaning and deck cleaning needs.  If you want an easy-to-use product that can be applied every few years and still gets the job done better than half the other products on the market than look no further.

Don’t forget that if you have pets or a garden, you need to take extra measures to protect them during the time that you are cleaning your roof. Make sure that all the water is appropriately taken care of as the chemical is not biodegradable.

  • Easy to use

  • Environmental friendly

CONS

  • Has a higher price than some other products
Here we have another great product that can help you clean your roof from dirt, grime and other troublesome things that can make it look dirty and nasty. The name of this product is Spray and Forget, don’t forget it!

There are many reasons why you should use this product, but the one thing that we liked is that you can use it to spray your roof, and over time the stain will disappear, without you washing them down! That’s right; you can just let mother nature help you when it comes to cleaning your roof. Who needs to climb ladders and spend hours working, increasing the chances of getting injured, when you can use Spray and Forget Super concentrated roof cleaner? Reducing the life of your roof and your shingles can now be dealt with ease, and everyone can do it with just a few simple steps.

Make sure to water all the plants and places where the product could drain to or touch as a cautionary method.  If you are looking for a wholesome product that will be your go-to roof cleaner, then make sure to test this one as we found the results surprising and we think that every homeowner should give it a try. Spray and Forget can be used on all types of roofs, shutters, decks, sidings, fences and many other places around your home.

Why you should use Spray and Forget


When it comes to roof cleaning products, there are a dime a dozen. However good products are hard to find in every industry, that’s why when there is such a saturated market you have to consider only the best. This is one of those products that you should use and its due to the following reasons.

It’s easy to use, does not require additional chemicals to be used to achieve the same resolution. Another great thing to keep in mind is that the product is biodegradable, which means that it’s not poisonous to your plants, pets, and your roof. Furthermore, it requires no further scrubbing once the solution is applied and it has a long-lasting effect where you need to re-apply it again only after two years.

So, if you are new to the roof cleaning shenanigans or a veteran in this business, you can safely place your trust in Spray and Forget that it will get the job done and done right!

How to Use Spray and Forget


When we tested this product, we found that it was so easy to use, that even a child can learn how to use it. Disclaimer, don’t let your children use this, you never know what kind of trouble they can get themselves into. There are two ways how you can use Spray and Forget and it will depend on what size of canister you bought.

If you got the small one, you could attach it to the end of the hose, and it will disperse the solution equally over your roof as you water it down. If you got the bigger ones, than you need to grab 1 gallon per 6-7 gallons of water and once mixed it should be sprayed on the roof and either rinsed down with a high-pressure machine, or you can just let mother nature take care of the dirt and grime, as this product works perfectly even if left alone.

We tried both methods, and to our surprise, both of them left us satisfied on several occasions.

Verdict


For everyone that is looking to take care of a big roof or several houses, depending on the job that you are working on, we highly recommend this product. When it comes to testing several products in a few months, we have tested a lot of them, and we can say that this product performed above our expectations, especially when it comes to the forgetting about it part. We sprayed and left it on the roof, and for the next two days, it did not rain.

However, once it did rain the dirt and grime was washed down the next day we checked. Furthermore, the algae and the mold turned brown the moment we poured the product on the roof and for the next two months while we were still checking we did not saw any reform on the roof. The product advertises that it should be re-applied within the next two years, and we think that can be a correct assessment as for the six months that we have tested it we saw no returning problems.

The product has no poisonous chemicals which place it pretty high on our wanted list. We especially like that it has no bleach, lye, acid, phosphates or heavy metals, as we all have pets and we don’t want them getting ill from our roof cleaning expeditions. The product has only one negative side, and that won’t be a negative for everyone – the price. When compared to some other products on the market it may be a bit more expansive, but believe us when we tell you, it’s worth every penny.

If you want to save a few bucks on your roof cleaning product, you can get some other, and it might get the job done how you envisioned it. However, it’s almost a guarantee that this one will do it 100% of the time. You will probably end up spending more than you would by buying this product. Don’t hesitate, try it and we guarantee you won’t regret investing the few more bucks.

  • Has a long-lasting initial effect
  • Easy to use as it has two steps
  • Amazing at removing stains
  • Biodegradable so its environmental friendly for any home and surrounding

  • Economical

CONS

  • Comes in fewer size variations than the competition
  • Needs to be rinsed off after application
Another beautiful day outside and it’s time to start working on the house. The first thing we noticed is that we have to get the roof cleaned, and we believe you are here for the same reason.  Lucky for you we have reviewed several products, and today we have some fantastic stories to share with you when it comes to high-quality products that surpass our expectations. As a review site that has dealt with hundreds of products for roof cleaning we rarely find some that impress us with their efficiency and with their price.

DEFY Roof Cleaner Concentrate is one of those that impressed us. Namely what sets this product apart from the rest is that it removes those stubborn stains with ease, but let’s not stop there, it can also restore the appearance of tiles, asphalt, and cedar roofs without using any additional chemicals. That’s right if you want to get rid of the stains on your roof, and if you buy this product, you don’t need to invest additional resources in other products. We also forgot to mention that it is nature-friendly which means that it can be used safely on your roof without the danger of destroying your garden. Make sure to water the plants beforehand as a protective step.

The chemicals that make the product are a blend of sodium Metasilicate and detergents. That gives it a pleasant smell while it takes care of the dirt grime and other problems. It is truly a roof cleaning product that most homes should try, and own if they meet your standards. We found no downsides to using this product, and we highly doubt that once you try it that you will be anything but happy with the results. Comes available in concentrated 1-gallon containers.

Why you should use DEFY Roof Cleaner Concentrate


As with many products for cleaning your canopy, this one is also safe for your vegetation, but it has several other beneficiaries uses. First of all, it can be used on almost all surfaces, and not just on the roof. You can clean your pavement with it, just have a different mixture with a lower dose of chems on the asphalt. It removes algae, mildew, fungus, moss, black and brown stains, and everything we had on our roof for testing, that we don’t have now that we have tested DEFY Roof Cleaner.

Another thing to keep in mind is that this product is amazingly fast, as some will take a month to get rid of all the dirt and issues your roof may have, but DEFY will only take a couple of days and sometimes not even that long.

How to Use DEFY Roof Cleaner Concentrate


The coverage Rate for DEFY Roof Cleaner is 700 – 900 total sq. ft. per concentrated gallon when diluted. The usual mixture ratio for cleaning one’s roof can be 6:1. Each gallon of concentrate makes 7 gallons of excellent roof cleaning solution. You should get the mix right every time because the product will lose its cleaning power when diluted too much. You could dilute it more than recommended in case your surface problem isn’t very severe. In that case, a ratio of 7:1 or even 8:1 should be sufficient to get the job done.

This product can be used on virtually any outdoor surface including you:

  • Driveway
  • Siding
  • Patio
  • Pool Deck
  • Fencing
  • RVs
  • Roof
  • Garage
  • Playground equipment
  • Pots
  • And more

Verdict


If you are in the market to remove stains from your roof, then you will love this product. We highly recommend it to anyone in the roofing business. In areas where there are a lot of rains, and the roofs get often infested with algae and with moss, this product is a must-have for every homeowner. The DEFY Roof Cleaning Concentrate is biodegradable which makes it safe to use around pets, and a garden, as it won’t acidify the ground and make it poisonous.

Even though many products on the market also have similar benefits, we would still recommend this one as the default go-to product that every homeowner should get. All in all, a well-rounded product that is good for roof stains, and one that can be used for other parts of the house safely without worry of damaging the surface you want to clean. With so many products on the market when it comes to roof cleaning, it’s hard to pick your favorite, and even though we won’t say that this one is our favorite, we would use it again whenever we have any issues with our roofs. The only thing we noticed is that if it rains soon after we placed the solution on the roof than the results would be worse than if it rained let’s say in a week.

So, try and place this product several days before the rain as if you are aiming for maximum impact than you might as well go the safe route. Also, when it comes to the price range, we found that this product was ahead of the competition as the quality of cleaning power you get for the price is quite amazing. A good indication how the product has been accepted by users is that it’s now been used and maintains use by over 70% of Americans that own a home. Try it and you’ll see why it’s so popular.
