As a cedar roof cleaning contractor and service provider we have seen way to many cedar shakes home owners replace their cedar roof prematurely. Just because it looks bad doesn't mean it is bad! Most home owners were never told that cedar shakes have to be maintained. It is akin to having your teeth cleaned. Your teeth are organic and need to be maintained to reach their full life span. Cedar shakes are organic also and need to be maintained in order to reach their full life span. It makes common sense when you think about it. With todays cedar roofs, the underlining or what we call roof felt is the water barrier and the shakes protect the felt. As long as you keep the shakes healthy the felt will stay healthy. It is the algae, moss, mold, mildew, lichen and fungi e.g. white & brown rot fungi that cause the deterioration. Cedar on it's own will not decay. It is through these infestations, combined with moisture that causes the cedar shakes to deteriorate. Remove these infestations and you stop further deterioration. A good and proper cedar roof cleaning should last about 6 to 8 years subjectively. The good part is in most cases for less than 5% of the replacement cost you can have your cedar roof cleaned. Before you consider having your cedar roof replaced consider first the option of having it cleaned. Though we or our network members will not clean a cedar roof that is in need of major repair or replacement! Unlike a roofer who wants to replace your cedar roof, we want your cedar roof to last many more years, that's our service and besides we want to come back in 6 to 8 years and clean it again. So yes we have an ulterior motive to want to clean your cedar roof. So contact us today about having your cedar roof cleaned and extending it's life span.
