Planning to reprint the Barth roof. I have a great pressure washer with several nozzles. Can I use it to clean my roof before I put the anvil on? Thought it might do a better job than a scrub brush.

Richard,
What is the psi of your pressure washer? Be careful where you use any pinpoint nozzle. You can actually dent or furrow the aluminum. You can also peel any dicor sealant either self leveling or no sag. You don't want to have to redo seals. Also be careful at any point of attachment. I used pressure washer but also scrubbed multiple times with an old heavy duty scrub brush on a broom handle with dawn dish soap and bleach from a bucket.

You don't want to be doing it again. Just be careful of high pressure washer.

I used a stiff scrub brush on a mop/broom type threaded handle. You can stand up and cover a good bit of ground.
