Cedar Roof Cleaning

Here is our first cedar roof! Pretty challenging as it was 3 stories, with a gazebo on stilts with no gutters, and the roof was basically vertical on the house

Good Job.. I appreciate

Architecture of your home is amazing and so is the roof. Cedar wood is long-lasting, making it an ideal roofing material. Cedar lasts at least 10 years longer than common roofing materials, like asphalt. Cedar wood shingles and shakes are also resistant to strong winds and are durable in hurricanes, heavy rains, hail storms, snowstorms and other types of severe storms.

Cedar wood roofs are also energy efficient, providing a natural insulation up to two times that of asphalt shingles. This allows you to conserve home heating and cooling costs, and significantly save on energy bills.

Not to be overlooked are the benefits of using an eco-friendly roofing material. The Shake Guys are diligent about the environment when we harvest western red cedar to make our cedar shingles and shakes.

Hahaha Appreciative no doubt...

I happened to see few good roofing designs online http://www.royalyorkroofing.ca/gallery/residential/. Take a look. It was helpful for me to decide which roofing to choose for my roofing renovation project. I finally chose cedar roofing for its elegance and long lasting feature. Also take a look at this pic of cedar roofing

That looks good for your first cedar shake.

Yeah, it is really appreciative. Cedar roofing is really good and it is resistant to the wind. It is less susceptible to moss growth and it gives an ideal look.

Nice to know about cedar wood roofs, I thought asphalt had best energy saving features being energy star compliant. Cedar roof seems to beat asphalt on every count and can bear vagaries of nature more effectively. Though i wonder if they would be fire resistant and then they could also be affected by termites.

Cedar roofs are a different animal, very difficult to walk and clean but very rewarding once completed

Yes, cedar roofs are a different animal. Iíve had success with SH Roof mix and a heavy rinse after to properly remove all the chemical. Then you must go over it with an oil type stain to reserve the wood and keep it from drying out.

We've done quite a bit of cedar over the years, both 3-stepped and stained, as well as single-stepped. Check out our website via the link in my signature below.

Very impressive!

minuteman 03-13-2018 03:47 PM

I have problems with vegetation die off from the SH.

We constantly rinse as we work but will still get some damage.

What do you think?

minuteman 03-13-2018 04:02 PM

How were you able to get a golden/cedar color when you were finished?

Do you use SH?

MarshallBennett 10-12-2018 02:27 AM

I also have the same question in my mind?

Sky_Roof_Cleaning 01-05-2020 11:35 AM

I don't have experience with wood cleaning but that's on my priority list this year. Do people have some resources for that

PS: Looking for Before and after a great job you did.
