Care and preservation of cedar roofs.

Step 1 Provide you with a free initial inspection and estimate.

Step 2 Remove leaf material and debris from your roof and gutters.

Step 3 Clean your roof to remove dirt and fungus. The cleaning method to be used is assessed at the time of inspection based on roof condition and age. A low-pressure chemical wash may be used or a high-pressure power-wash may be used.

Step 4 Replace missing and worn cedar shakes. Re-nail or replace curled and raised shakes.

Step 5 Our craftsman use the superior cedar shim method to correct areas of exposed roof felt in between the keyways of the shakes.

Step 6 Re-nail loose nails and ridge caps.

Step 7 Caulk and secure flashing around chimneys and vent pipes.

Step 8 Apply oil-based treatment. Application of oil-based preservatives is recommended by experts in wood exterior maintenance. We blend paraffin oil with preservatives and apply with high volume spray for maximum restoration of your roof's beauty and resistance to damage from weathering and other causes. Our oil treatment provides additional UV inhibitors, fire retardants, fungicides and moisture- resistant barriers that minimize water damage.

Step 9 Wash your house and other property to remove solution and debris with hose and soap detergent.
