Cedar Roof Cleaning

How Often Should Cedar Shingles be Cleaned?

Ideally, cedar roof shingles should be cleaned every 3-5 years, preferably during the mid-spring or early fall — after the last of the winter weather or before the fall of the autumn leaves.

Why Do You Need to Clean Cedar Shingles?

The biggest threat to the quality of your cedar shingles is the growth of organisms along the surface of the wood. If the shingles turn from a fresh or silvery cedar color to a dark brown or black tone, it is time to have your roof cleaned by a professional.

Depending on your roof warranty, you may be legally required to have the shingles cleaned on an annual basis.
In any case, the quality and appearance of your cedar roof depend on routine cleanings.

How we Clean Cedar Roof Shingles

We use a solution of sodium or calcium hypochlorite mixed with water and surfactant. As the mildew and algae are killed, they are removed by several factors, light rinsing while we are there, rain, wind and time. 

Please note; it may take several weeks to months for all of the organisms to come off your roof. We never mechanically remove items either by hand or by pressure washer. Doing this may lead to shortening the life of your shingles.
