Maintaining Commercial Cedar Roofs
Roof maintenance is best way to improve the longevity of your roof and save money by eliminating the cost and inconvenience of replacement. We help make sure that our clients’ roofs receive regular and effective maintenance. We also look for ways to be environmentally friendly, so regular maintenance also avoids the disposal of worn roofing into the landfill. Your maintenance plan with Shake Guys provides you with the information you need for ongoing personal attention whenever you call us. We provide free inspections, so you don’t have to wait until you have water leaking through the roof or mold in the attic. Our proven processes provide your cedar shake roof the highest possible quality protection. In addition to the support of our expert technicians, our website has up-to-date information available to help you with techniques and helpful tips that can be easily used between maintenance appointments.
Cedar must be able to breathe, and it’s important for the life of your cedar roof that it is kept clear of debris on the surface of the shakes and in the spaces between. Regular maintenance must include processes that will thoroughly clean the roof without the use of abusive cleansers. It is also important to give attention to the storm drains, gutters and downspouts, making sure that they are cleaned at least twice a year. Other preventative maintenance around the home can reduce how frequently maintenance steps are required. Tree branches should be trimmed to prevent overhang, which could keep moisture on the roof and lead to water damage.
