Cedar Shake Restoration

Keep Your Roof Leak-Proof

Cedar Shake Roof Restoration

Cedar shake roofs bestow an air of distinction and grace to homes. With their classic beauty, they are an enduring choice for homeowners seeking style and longevity. However, owning a cedar shake roof comes with responsibilities, and Master Decker is here to guide you through it. Routine maintenance, performed every 8-10 years, is crucial for combating the buildup of algae, fungi, mildew, moss, and lichen. These organisms, not only tarnish the aesthetic appeal but also feed on the wood, compromising its integrity. When tended with care, your cedar shake roof can remain splendid for a staggering 40-50 years.

Master Decker’s Cedar Shake Roof Cleaning: The Epitome of Excellence

At Master Decker, we recognize that your cedar shake roof deserves nothing less than perfection. Soft washing is the only cleaning method that respects and preserves the integrity of the wood. Our carefully curated wood-friendly chemicals meticulously remove unwanted growth, such as algae, mold, and lichen. If required, our solution also tackles old stains and oils.

Caution: We do not employ high-pressure cleaning, as this can strip fibers and rob the wood of its natural oils, leaving it dry and brittle. Our soft wash process is gentle, akin to the stream from a garden hose. Post-cleaning, an acid is applied to the wood to balance the pH and brighten the shakes. The final flourish is an application of oil to rehydrate and revive the wood. The result? A cedar shake roof that looks incredibly vibrant and years younger.


Cedar Shake Restoration Benefits

Extended Roof Lifespan:

Cedar shake restoration goes a long way in prolonging the life of your roof. Over time, cedar shakes are prone to wear and tear due to weather exposure. Restoration ensures that any damaged or worn-out shakes are repaired or replaced, and a protective layer is added to shield against future damage. This means your roof will last much longer and save you from costly replacements.

Enhanced Aesthetic Appeal:

One of the most apparent benefits of cedar shake restoration is the instant boost it gives to the beauty of your home. Cedar is known for its rich and warm appearance, and restoration helps in reviving its natural charm. Whether it’s cleaning, repairing, or resealing the shakes, the restoration process can transform a weathered and aged roof into a stunning architectural feature that increases your home’s curb appeal.

Increased Property Value:

Investing in cedar shake restoration can positively impact the value of your property. A well-maintained cedar shake roof is often sought after by homebuyers for its visual appeal and durability. By ensuring your roof is in top condition through restoration, you’re not just preserving its integrity but also adding to the market worth of your home, which can be a significant advantage if you decide to sell.

Common Cedar Roof Restoration Questions:

Q: How much does a cedar roof cleaning cost?

A: The cost is contingent on various factors, such as the roof’s age, the amount of organic material buildup, the presence of stains or oils, the size of the home, and the roof’s pitch. On average, prices typically range from $2,500 to $7,500.

Q: Is the cleaning solution garden-friendly?

A: Our solution is designed to eradicate organic matter. We take diligent measures to pre-treat your garden. In some instances, we use tarps to shield delicate plants. While we cannot give an absolute guarantee against wilting, the majority of plants rejuvenate in the subsequent season. Rest assured, we prioritize the welfare of your garden.

Q: How do you estimate the cost?

A: In most cases, we measure your roof using satellite imagery and require a few photographs of different sides of your home to assess the type of growth on the roof. An on-site visit might be necessary but is not always required.

Q: What are the consequences of not cleaning my cedar roof?

A: Neglecting your cedar roof can drastically reduce its lifespan, as the bacteria on the wood will cause decay. There have been instances where cedar roofs needed replacement within just 12-15 years. The replacement costs are considerably higher; hence regular cleaning is an investment that extends your roof’s life to 30+ years, saving you in the long run.
