Professional Roof Cleaning

There are a lot of people out there who might think to pull out the power washer to get rid of the moss, mold, and bacteria that can grow and cause damage to the roof. Not only can it be dangerous for you to get on your roof with a bulky power washer, but it will also cause more damage to your roof.

When you (or a professional) pressure washes the roof, it blows away the granules that cover the roof shingles. These granules are there to protect the shingle from UV rays and make the shingles more fire resistant. By pressure washing away those granules, your roof shingles will become brittle and crack due to prolonged exposure to UV rays in the long days of summer. This means you’ll have to replace your roof earlier!

We look at the general surface condition and the condition of the butt ends of your shingles.

Fasteners

Nails and other metal fasteners can pull loose and backout with natural expansion and contraction that occurs with the changing of seasons. Loose fasteners weaken the integrity of your cedar roofing system. In some cases, the nails can be simply nailed back down.

Mold & Moisture

Do not power wash your cedar shake roof.

We know some people like the natural look of Moss and Lichen that forms on Cedar Shake Shingles. Most people do not realize that Moss and Lichen do serious damage to your Cedar Shake Roof. Moss and Lichen along with other plant types that grow on a roof holds moisture and rots out the shingles. Cedar Shake Shingles are supposed to get wet and then dry out but with all the growth on the shingles they do not get to dry out and begin to rot. You can hire a professional roof cleaner to professionally clean your Cedar Shake to prevent this kind of damage and prolong the life of your roof! We use a Soft-Wash System to clean your roof. What ever you do, do not power wash your Cedar Shake.

Debris

leaves and moss

Debris can cause standing water, or even draw water up the slope and around the shingles and flashings. Overhanging trees can deposit sap and other types of moisture which can promote the growth of Moss and Lichen and rapid decay. So, it is important to keep your cedar shake roof clear of debris as often as possible.

Valleys
