De-sap and wax the roof

Iíll admit that I havenít waxed the roof in a couple of years. We have cottonwood poplar trees that drop messy yellow sticky sap balls. Iíve found they the best way melt it is with Krud Kutter. I spray about 2 square feet at a time, let it sit, then scrape with a credit card until it feels smooth. Many hours later, itís now de-sapped. Phew. Now to waxÖ.
Btw, whoever mentioned the pool noodle on the ladder hack, thank you! I can reach all but a few inches in the center from the sides this way. Attachment 1Attachment 1
