    Cedar shake Roof Cleaning, Repair, Maintenance

    Extend the Lifespan of your Cedar Roof

    The most important reason to maintain your cedar roof is to ensure that it lasts the expected lifespan of 30-50 years or more.

    Cedar shakes, like any other roofing material, are subject to mother nature’s elements and deteriorate with time. Although cedar roofs have a long life, it is heavily influenced by the environment. Proper care can prevent your cedar roof from deteriorating and extend the life and beauty of your cedar roofing.

    Cedar shakes and shingles are typically quadruple the price of standard asphalt shingles. Most homeowners, are unaware of the hefty repair expenses of cedar until it is too late. When this occurs, it is typical to replace cedar with standard asphalt shingles due to the huge cost differential and insurance carrier resistance to roof damage claims.

    Cedar Shake Roof Cleaning

    Why Clean Your Cedar Roof?

    Cedar is particularly resistant to insects and can withstand high winds if properly constructed. Cedar, on the other hand, is more prone to water retention from rain and shade coverage, which causes mildew, mold, and rotting. Tree sap and debris from overhanging trees increase bacterium growth, reducing the cedar’s lifespan significantly.

    It’s time to clean your cedar roof if you notice mildew, mold, or other organic material developing on it. SoftWash low-pressure power washing is the most secure, effective, and long-lasting approach.

    How Do I Clean My Cedar Roof?

    Because of the possibility of splitting, cracking, or being displaced, cedar shake and cedar shingle roofs it is important to call a cedar roof expert to clean your roof.

    Maintaining Your Cedar 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.


    Cedar Roof Repair

    Cedar roofs are extremely sturdy and are not easily damaged by wind, ice, or hail. The most typical cedar roof repairs are to transitional regions, such as around chimneys or other penetrations, where the cedar roof meets something (ie. skylight, vent, or other roof element). Roof flashing around skylights, valleys, or chimneys may also need to be resealed. Skylights are a common source of roof leaks because they are typically placed incorrectly.

    Cedar shingles have a substantially longer lifespan than asphalt shingles with proper installation and upkeep. Longevity is defined as a life expectancy of 50 years. Because of its weather resistance and strength, cedar is one of the world’s best natural roofing materials. Cedar shingles, due to their durability and tenacity, can boost the longevity and value of your home.
