Cedar Roof Cleaning
Why is maintenance required?
Cedar does not decay on its own. Decay is caused by exposure to moisture combined with moss, mold, mildew, lichen, or fungi. Our soft-wash cleaning process stops the present deteriorating condition by removing the infestations. The cedar shakes are returned to their intended functioning condition, preventing costly repairs and premature roof replacement. The cost of treatment, in most cases, is less that 10 % of the replacement cost. We recommend that you have your cedar shake roof cleaned every 8 to 10 years to maximize its lifespan.
Our Cleaning Process
Our solution is biodegradable and breaks down into natural materials in the environment without causing harm. It contains a fungicide, mildewcide & algaecide that kills all wood-destroying infestations such as moss, mold, mildew, algae, lichen & fungi. It also contains a surfactant soap to help it cling to the shakes. Because the natural oils in cedar tend to leach out over time causing shakes to become brittle, we also use a steam processed oil (3%) to re-hydrate the shakes making them resistant to moisture, insects and decay. Our process removes stains, mildew, moss and brown rotfungus, and will not harm your family, pets or landscaping.
