Before you retain someone to clean your cedar shakes roof do your research. Cedar shakes roofs are expensive and require special care. There is a difference between those that clean cedar shakes and those that are cedar shakes cleaners. We are the latter. We have cleaned hundreds of cedar shakes roofs.

Here are just a few cedar roof facts.

Cedar is a natural insulator against the environment; competitors can’t come close to the thermal efficiency of wood. In fact, cedar has twice the thermal resistivity (R-value) of asphalt, 5 times that of slate, 8 times that of concrete, and hundreds of times that of metal and aluminum.

Cedar roofs don’t decay, but they do weather. It has natural preservatives that resist moisture, decay and insect damage. Although in warm, humid climates and on heavily shaded roofs, algae, moss, mold, mildew, lichen and fungi’s will grow, because these organisms retain moisture the cedar will decay in time if not maintained.

When new the shakes and shingles display the natural honey and cinnamon tones, and will later mature to a seasoned and distinguished-looking silvery gray when properly maintained.

If the shakes or shingles display a brown/dark brown to black tones, these are signs of harmful organism infestations and they need to be cleaned.

With a proper cedar roof maintenance program a cedar roof will last anywhere from 40 to 60 years.

We don't sell just a service, we sell results. Here are a few examples of our results:
