The good companies will be able to offer and advise their customers on a number of different types of washes. This is very important for several reasons, the main one being that certain wash methods are not suitable for certain properties.

North Shore House Wash

North Shore House Wash

North Shore House Wash Right On The Beach

One of the things I love about house washing is the variety of properties you get to work on and this particular job was an absolute pleasure to complete. It was hard work to get it all done in the time frame we had allocated but we made it.

The views from the roof were simply to die for. Unfortunately though I didn’t have my camera on the roof with or I would have taken a couple of pictures.

The property is situated on one of the many beaches on Auckland’s beautiful North Shore. As you can see from the picture below, the beach literally starts at the end of the garden. We got to wash this one on a magnificently hot day in the middle of summer.

North Shore House Wash – Not For The Faint Hearted

Every square inch of this property got washed, even the tops of the plastered pillars which helped to form the pergola covering the second floor balcony. Luckily, the cross members were just wide enough to walk across but if you don’t like heights, then seeing the concrete tiled courtyard some 15 metres below might not be that comforting for some.

In addition to washing the actual buildings on this site we were also able to provide general water blasting services by cleaning up all the surrounding concrete paths, all the way down to the beach wall, the driveway and the courtyard.

The visible faces above the third floor roof line also posed a challenge but being the carefree adventurer that I am, really just adds to the excitement of the project.

All in all I’d have to say that this one is one of the best north shore house wash projects that we’ve been able to add to our portfolio.
