Cedar Roof Repair and Oil Treatment Process
1. First we look over the roof and inspect for any damaged or weathered areas that
may be leaking. And look for any loose or missing shakes or ridge-caps. Also we check around for any holes caused by animals and checkout skylights, flashing, pipe jackets, vents, etc.
2. Second we repair the roof with quality grade shake whether it's heavy,medium or
perfection. We replace all bad or missing shakes. We replace all bad or missing ridge-caps. Patch any holes. Caulk skylights, flashing, pipe jackets, vents,etc.
3. Third we treat any moss,mildew or algae then scrub it with a brush. We don't
ever recommend power washing your roof. It peels back a layer of the shake shortening the life of the roof.
4. Last but not least. We blow the roof off. And treat the entire roof with a chevron shingle oil treatment. Unlike most treatments it penetrates down deep into the shake locking into the
fibers of the cedar. This treatment slows down the weathering process. Maintained properly your cedar roof could last 35-50 yrs.
ALSO ONE THING WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND IS TO NEVER POWER-WASH YOUR ROOF IT WILL DAMAGE THE SHAKE. IT PEELS BACK A LAYER OF THE SHAKE MAKING IT 10 TIMES MORE BRITTLE AND EASIER FOR WINDS TO DAMAGE.
