You may wonder why you should use a roof treatment. It naturally blocks moss and algae, and restores the wood’s color.
Roof TopAs with any wood material, cedar shakes suffer from the effects of the weather and break down over time. A combination of ultraviolet light, humidity, shade and heat have a particular effect on cedar, and premature deterioration will result if left neglected, increasing the need for roof repair. The life of cedar, though very durable, depends largely on the environment.
Besides enhancing the look of your home, a roof treatment helps extend the life of your roof. In fact, every year it goes untreated, you lose three years off its lifespan. We use one of the finest wood preservative and moss, fungus, and algae retardant treatments on the market. Among the advantages:
- It provides year-round protection.
- It is a high solids wood preservative.
- It is environmentally safe.
- It repels water, reduces water damage, and limits contraction/expansion.
- It reflects heat.
- It is non-leaching.
- It includes a Class A fire retardant
Left unprotected, cedar suffers from many ailments: photo degradation caused by sunlight; shrinking and swelling caused by the absorption and evaporation of water within the wood; and discoloration caused by the presence of decay-promoting micro-organisms.
Through the interaction of sunlight and rainfall, cedar shakes and shingles can lose virtually all their natural protectants in a short time. After five years, most cedar shingles and shakes begin to show signs of cupping, curling, splitting, and decay. Unlike most materials, however, cedar shingles and shakes can be restored and maintained through proper care.
The type of roof treatment you use could mean the difference between life and death of your roofing material. We treat it right, using a 100% oil-based cedar shake preservative, which contains a moss, algae, and fungus retardant, as well as a water repellent and insecticide. We’re so sure of our treatments that we offer a written, four-year guarantee against moss, algae, and fungus.
The treatment is non-toxic and does not harm the environment. It is water-based and multi-purpose. It is cedar tinted and restores the beauty of your natural cedar roof. It also has a special coating that bonds to the fibers in the wood to naturally block biological growth.
Many companies use outdated, toxic treatments that require a commercial license to apply. Others use cheap and ineffective emulsifiable water-based treatments. These are not wood preservatives. They are low-cost fungicides.
