Right now in early spring is the best time to wash away the grime of winter from your home—especially your vinyl siding—but you want to be careful how it gets done. Pressure washers are extremely powerful. The pressurized water can rip a hole in your arm as easily as it can rip the siding from your home.

That’s why you want to choose a professional service like Rick Winrod’s Rolling Thunder Window Cleaning & Pressure Washing.

“We’ve been cleaning siding, concrete, roofs and windows since 1997,” Rick says. “And we’ve learned a thing or two about how to do it effectively, yet safely.”

Rick uses just the right balance of pressure and detergent to get beautiful results without damaging your home.

“We use a low-pressure soft wash that will protect your siding, trim, gutters, and shingles,” Rick explains. “And our specially-formulated detergents are safe for your family, pets and flower beds. We’re like physicians who have taken the Hippocratic Oath. Our first rule is, ‘Do no harm.’”

Art and Science
Rick founded Rolling Thunder 22 years ago as a window cleaning company, but quickly expanded into other home cleaning services.

“Like so many things in life, power washing is both an art and a science,” Rick says. “It requires knowledge, experience, talent, attention to detail, and investing in—and knowing how to use—today’s best, high-tech equipment.”

Rick has a small team and he’s personally trained each of his technicians how to perform power washing to his own exacting standards.

“I take pride in my work and so do the people who work for me,” he adds. “They do it the way I want it done.”

The Rolling Thunder team has over 50 years of combined experience in window cleaning, gutter cleaning and power washing, which involves high-pressure equipment and ladder work. “Experience is essential,” Rick insists.

“We know how to keep your property and our employees safe. Our entire team is OSHA-safety trained and we are fully insured. If I can give your readers just one piece of advice, it would be this: Be absolutely certain that any company you hire carries all of the proper insurance. Insist on seeing copies of contractor’s Liability and Workers Comp insurance. Don’t be afraid to ask. It may seem awkward, but a professional home improvement company expects you to ask.”

Getting Started
Rolling Thunder is off to a busy start this spring because Northeast Ohio homes are especially dirty this year. The early winter meant that homeowners were caught off guard and didn’t get around to cleaning the dirt and grime we all know is still there waiting for us. Plus, 2018 was a wet year, creating more algae, moss and mold. As a result, it’s a good idea to call Rick and get on his schedule as soon as possible.

And if you get multiple quotes, Rick may surprise you. “We’re a smaller company with lower overhead, so we’re typically less expensive than the big guys. That’s one reason we win almost every job we bid on.”

More Than Power Washing
In addition to power washing, Rolling Thunder handles gutter cleaning and interior and exterior window cleaning.

“If you really want to brighten your environment, let us clean your windows,” Rick invites, “especially if you haven’t had it done in a while. The results brighten your home in ways you won’t believe until you see it.”

The Rolling Thunder Window Cleaning offices are located at 33480 Liberty Parkway in North Ridgeville, but the company services homes throughout Northeast Ohio. For more information or to receive a free estimate, call 440-897-6317. The website is
