Some cedar treatments can do more harm than good. Here's how to keep your cedar roof in fine form for years to come
Replace damaged shingles regularly to keep your cedar roof looking like new
In recent years, an entire industry has developed around restoring cedar roofing. But a simple pressure washing isn’t going to fix everything. In fact, it may cause more damage, so it’s important to know how to make educated choices when dealing with cedar roofs.
Organic debris from overhanging trees, wind-blown leaves, dust and dirt combine with the spring rains to promote the growth of moss and algae on your roof. This has spawned an army of entrepreneurs offering to extend the life of cedar roofs with high pressure washing and other treatments while promising unrealistic warranties.
Desperate homeowners see these treatments as a way to avoid re-roofing for another 10 years, when in fact, the damage in many cases has already been done from years of neglect. And the industry is largely unregulated, in the case of both the products and the work force.
Cleaning is essential for roofing of all types, and especially for cedar maintenance. But high-pressure washing (with gas-powered pressure washers) can actually do more damage than good by removing the pulp of the cedar itself.
