Cedar Shake Roof Cleaning.

Cedar shake is excellent roofing material. This tried-and-true roofing material has been used for centuries because of its impressive reliability – but only if the homeowner maintains it. Part of maintaining your cedar shake roofing material is having it regularly cleaned.
The moment you spot any of the following, it’s probably time for a professional cleaning:

  • Mold
  • Fungus
  • Lichen
  • “Zebra” stripes (white and/or black stripes)

The Process

Before getting started, our roof cleaners will place tarps over anything that could even potentially be water damaged, and of course, we wear OSHA-standard safety gear.

Our trained and certified team of professionals understand that your roof is an investment – that’s why we use a low PSI pressure washer to gently wash your roof. We don’t get too close to avoid breakage of your cedar shake shingles.

Full Inspection

In addition to cleaning your roof, we’ll perform a full inspection to see if any shingles need to be replaced. We’ll also pressure wash and flush your gutters, and before leaving your property, we’ll make sure that the exterior of your home is left washed and spotless.
