Have your ever had your cedar shake roof inspected? If it is five years or older, it is due for a checkup and cleaning. Just like our teeth, cedar must also be cleaned and maintained. A well maintained cedar shake roof should last 40 to 60 years. However, if it is not properly cleaned and maintained, the cedar shakes will eventually decay.
Why Should You Care? Your cedar roof was expensive to install, will be expensive to repair and eventually will be even more expensive to replace. It’s in your best interest to maximize its useful life by scheduling a routine maintenance cleaning treatment before moss, lichen, mold, algae and fungi ruin your cedar roof.
Does your roof have dark gray, black or greenish color like this house shown below? Is there moss growing on your roof like on this house? If so, deterioration has begun and must be addressed immediately. Just like a dentist appointment, putting it off will only lead to further decay until it is too late and a costly replacement is the only option.
Fortunately the owners of this Naperville house called Advantage Roof Cleaning Company for their cedar roof cleaning before it was too late.
Do we use power washing? No. Power washing relies upon brute pressure to clean a surface. Cedar is a soft wood and power washing can do more harm than good. Our roof treatment offers a “non-pressure” cleaning process which is designed specifically for cedar shake roofs. Our non-pressure cleaning process stopped the present deteriorating condition by removing the infestations. The cedar shake roof was returned to its intended functioning condition. No costly repairs or roof replacement was needed. Cost of treatment, in most cases, is less than 5% of the replacement cost! To read more, go here. To contact us, go here.
