It depends on the age of the roof and condition its in.  Those natural "chemicals" leach out of the wood over time mostly due to the sun, not rain.  General soils and trees are acidic by nature, which also adds to its deteriorative state.  Most older roofs are going to require some sort of penetrating, pigmented protection from UV rays.  Most people up her opt for a clear coating, which in my opinion, does not last as long or serve the complete purpose of protection.  A clear water sealant could be replaced every season depending on it's (homes) location to the elements.

No question that applying a sealer helps, its just a matter of cost. To do it right costs $$$$$. That is why they use cedar. If customers were just informed on light maintenance, their roofs would last as long as they are supposed to. Most wait too long to get started. Amazing to me for something that is going to cost $60 grand on up to replace.

There should be a place just for cedar roof cleaning.

Also wish there was a place to share pics of job setups out of public sight for fellow roof cleaners to learn from.

You may want to Check out "Chevron shingle oil". If you come across some good information,it would be interesting to know. There does not seem to be a lot of knowledge about this product.
