We were just contracted to clean a Cedar shake roof in Lake Stevens WA. It is not unusual for us to see some roofs that are pretty dark with black wood rot fungi. But this roof is the blackest I have EVER seen. it looks almost burned. or charcoal painted!  We should be getting some seriously spectacular before and after shots next week.

I have been to Lake Stevens plenty of times, and I have to say that is THE Blackest Cedar Shake Roof in Lake Stevens Washington that I have ever ever seen.

I haven't been back to the PNW since 1989, but I can only imagine how it has grown.

This is how this Cedar Shake roof is turning out after the first and second cleaning stages. Here is the kicker...this roof is 75 years old!

That roof is turning out great.  It would be nice to see a cedar roof that is that black, but not totally covered with moss and lichen. Ours always have carpet on them

Looks good. Like a lot of shakes we saw in Maine.

Tannin is what that is. Pretty easy clean though compared to lichen.

Though we get a lot of it in the Midwest.
