It must be down to unsavoury living, for last year I too Maguired my roof. Little or no evidence of my hard work now but I still live in hope that one day, someone will come forth eulogising about my sparkling roof.

I find that the cleaner that the roof is the more the seagulls use it for target practice. Haha

Looking good Rob, nice to see it without a covering of snow!

Think I'll wait until April, then FJ Mike can have the fun crawling about on the roof :whistle:

I should have took a before and after mate, was bloody awful to do to be honest but a lot of job satisfaction. I have got some lifeshine left over so might try that then maybe the worst will just hose off.

Our roof was as green as a cabbage at the start of winter but the subsequent frosts, snow and rain have cleaned it all off. Hurrah for crap English weather I say!

Just remember to be careful if you do wax the roof, I did part of the top from the side and boy was it slippery when I climbed up there to wax the bits I couldn't reach.

Don't want any accidents do we.

Van was lovely and clean in Spain last year till the pigeon used it for target practice, really know I shouldn't have used Daz but had tried everything else. They must have disliked the smell they kept away after that.

We've got a 'wall hung' one that we got when we had our static caravan to put on the roof and stop the ruddy pigeons there waddling about on the roof at 5.00 am!!!! Never got it put up before we sold the static so still have it ... it's similar to this, about 15" x 12" and flat on the back ... could 'stick' it to the roof I suppose! :D
