Cedar Shake Roof Treatment
Cedar shingles can start to dry, curl, and crack sometimes very quickly. The silver patina that gives cedar its weather-beaten look is essentially the start of fungal growth.
If your roof color has faded noticeably you can test it to see if it needs to be treated. Simply put some water on the shingles and see if the shingles absorb the water. If some of the water is absorbed it’s more than likely you need to have a cedar roof treatment applied.
Cedar shake roof treatments are highly recommended to preserve and help extend the life of your cedar roof. Always use a roofing professional to clean and treat your roof. Don’t settle for a painter that applies treatment as an added service. Cedar roofs are more delicate than you might think. The wrong methods can damage your roof even more.
