If you love cedar shake roofing, you aren’t alone. Many homeowners install wood shingles and shakes because they are resistant to weather, conserve energy and add natural beauty to their homes. Cedar shingles offer many benefits and are well worth the ongoing maintenance required to keep them functioning properly. One issue with this type of roof is potential warping and deteriorating as a result of UV rays, mildew and moisture infiltration. Rotting can also occur if certain organisms are allowed to thrive and build up. The best way to prevent these issues from happening is to get a wood shingle preservative from North East Roofing. Cedar shake roof preservation will add years to the life of your roofing, so it is certainly an investment worth making.
First, we will send someone out to your property to determine the integrity of your roof. We will see if there is any need for repairs, but if you have just had your cedar roof installed, then it will likely be in very good condition already. Next, we will apply a cedar restorer to eliminate any fungi or dirt. After that, we will apply our high-quality preservative that will allow your shingles to be suppler. This application provides a layer of protection against harmful sun rays and microorganisms. With this treatment, you will not have to worry about your roof wearing down for many years to come.
