Why Do you Need Roof Treatment for Cedar Shake Roof?

The only way to get the full life-span potential from a cedar shake roof  is to maintain it and have it cleaned.  Treating your roof will block moss and algae, and restore the wood’s color, making it look aesthetically appealing and new.

Just like any other wood material, cedar shakes are impacted by extreme weather and break down over time.  Ultraviolet light, humidity, shade and heat all effect on cedar. If left neglected  premature deterioration will result and you will end up replacing your roof.  Cedar is durable if maintained properly. You should have your cedar roof treated annually.  Each year the roof goes untreated you lose three years off its lifespan.

At Cedar Roof repair of Chicago Suburbs, we use one of the finest wood preservative and moss, fungus, and algae retardant treatments on the market.

Various treatments can be performed as part of the cedar shake roof maintenance every couple of years. This includes water repellents, fungicides, algaecides, and fire repellents. These treatments may claim a long life, but it is best to apply them every 1 to 3 years as part of the regular cedar shake roof maintenance.

A shake roof can last about 30 years, with the right wood shake roof maintenance. Maintaining this kind of roof takes a lot of work, and needs to be done regularly to avoid faster deterioration. Ideally, complete cedar shingle roof maintenance should be performed every 2 to 4 years. But, some of these steps should be completed more often. Here are a few of the frequent maintenance requirements of red cedar shake roofs.
