Cedar Roofs are one of the best looking roofing materials you can put on your home. If installed properly and maintained they can outlast and outperform many other types of roofing. Like any natural building material cedar shake roofing does require maintenance or you’ll severely cut down the lifespan of your roof and it’s appearance will suffer greatly from neglect.
Although cedar is naturally resistant to some molds and mildews it is still an organic roofing material and over-time can be overrun with organic debris such as leaves, twigs, pollens and other natural debris that contributes to the growth of moss and other molds and fungus on your roof. A regular cleaning program for your Cedar Shingle Roof will keep it looking great and performing properly for many years to come. Under normal conditions in the North East a cedar roof should be cleaned every 5 years and even more frequently if you have heavy tree cover surrounding your home or property.

There are many specific things we need to watch for when cleaning a cedar roof and one of the first things is that the felt layer beneath your cedar shingles is still in good shape. If your roofing felt layer is not cracked, dried out or otherwise in good condition then we won’t have to worry about any water damage being caused or your roof leaking. If your felt is beyond repair (we’ll tell you) then you may need to have your roof replaced.
Two Really Important Things To Watch For:
Do your cedar shakes have a grayish or whitish color tinge? Or how about a brown to blackish tinge to them? If so, these are signs that your cedar shakes are starting to be attacked by aggressive fungi known as ” white rot fungi ” or ” brown rot fungi “. Hence why your roof might appear to be changing it’s color.
