There are many roof cleaners operating in Illinois. Cedar shakes and shingle roof owners know that their roof requires specialized attention. Not every roof cleaner understands that a no pressure cleaning process is the best method for cleaning lichen, moss, algae, and fungi from a cedar roof. Any other method has the possibility to damage the cedar shakes and shingles.

If your cedar roof has lost it’s golden hue and turned a brownish black color, it is time to have it cleaned. This unsightly color is evidence of organic material buildup, and if left untreated, could lead to an early roof replacement.

Roughly 50% of roofs in the mid west are replaced simply due to their ugly appearance or premature deterioration that could have been prevented! It goes without saying that replacing a roof is very costly.
