Asphalt Shingle Marks On Vinyl Siding
« on: September 21, 2017, 07:54:37 PM »
Just had our roof replaced after waiting for months for the roofers to show!

1st day: One adult Hispanic and four 12-14(?) year old male Hispanics.

Could not communicate at all. :whistling:

Around 9 hours into the job, a leg comes through the master bath ceiling!
Nothing was said about the accident until my better half walked into the bath and started screaming. :lmao:

I had to go and get the older guy and 'lead' him to the hole. :rant:

I called the company and the hole was repaired the next day ... all except for me now having to paint the ceiling!

Day Two: Five adult males get to the job at 7am and finish everything by 4pm.

Roof looks great but that leaves the question ... How to get rid of the 'many' asphalt scuff marks that were 'somehow' left over all of my white vinyl siding??

I don't want to scrub the marks because I'm pretty sure that I will then have discoloration in those areas?

I've heard that WD-40 or a citrus cleaner will work?

How about a cleaner like GoJo?

Forget calling the roofing company back, I don't trust them to know what to do!! :mad:

Yes they are.

I found that Turtle Wax tar and bug cleaner does the job very well though.

Thank You for responding.
