Maintaining Your Roof: Non-Chemical and Oil Treatments (Part 5 of Homeowner’s Guide)

We have discussed the reasons you may want to apply a chemical preservative treatment to your roof. Some homeowners may not feel comfortable with the use of these chemicals, and want an alternative treatment.

When Should A Roof Be Cleaned

What Does Your Cedar Roof Look Like?

When new, cedar shakes and shingles display natural honey and cinnamon tones, and will later mature to a seasoned and distinguished-looking silvery gray when properly maintained.

Cedar roofs don’t decay, but they do weather.

Cedar has natural preservatives that resist moisture, decay and insect damage. Although in warm, humid climates and on heavily shaded roofs, algae, moss, mold, mildew, lichen and fungi’s will grow, because these organisms retain moisture the cedar will decay in time if not maintained.

When Should A Cedar Roof Be Cleaned?

Cedar is a natural insulator against the environment; competitors can’t come close to the thermal efficiency of wood. In fact, cedar has twice the thermal resistivity (R-value) of asphalt, 5 times that of slate, 8 times that of concrete, and hundreds of times that of metal and aluminum.

If the shakes or shingles display a brown/dark brown to black tones, these are signs of harmful organism infestations and they need to be cleaned.

With a proper cedar roof maintenance program a cedar roof will last anywhere from 40 to 60 years.

Watch the videos above, see photos, read reviews and determine if now your cedar roof should be cleaned. Why prematurely replace your cedar roof when we can clean it?
