Cedar Roof Treatments for
Licensed - Bonded - Insured
After all the prep work is completed, we pick up all debris from the repairs & hand scrape the organic growth from the roof
We then clean the roof using leaf blowers or compressed air (depending on the severity) to remove leaves, tree debris & organic growth.
We then apply our exclusive cedar roof treatment to your roof saturating all shakes & ridge-caps using a low pressure spray system to ensure a heavy & even application
The treatment is now locked into the fibers of the wood & the weather does the rest. Because of the cleaning action of our cedar roof treatment the moss, fungus & lichen are destroyed & will be kept away for a long time
Your shake roof will return to that silver grey color it had when it was just a few months old. The length of time to return the cedar roof to the silver grey color depends on the roofs age, condition and weather. Roof pitch is also a factor
It will not damage landscaping, stain your concrete, clog your gutter system and will not harm human or animal life.
We do not pressure wash cedar roofs since a pressure washer can range from 1500 to 3500 PSI which results in taking 1/8 inch up to 3/16 of an inch off the surface of the shake/shingle . Not to mention the possibility of causing a leak from loosening flashings & damaging the felt paper interlayment.
*Note while our treatment is not made for insect prevention we have noticed our treatment helps protects against drywood termites, carpenter ants, old house borers, powderpost beetles, wood boring beetles & silverfish…kind of a bonus to our roof cleaning & treatment
