Cedar Roof Treatments
Cedar shingles are a favorite material for siding and roofs not only because of their aesthetic value but also because of their wide availability and ability to stay strong for many years. They have the ability to breath which keeps warm air in in the winter and cool air in in the summer which ultimately saves on heating and cooling costs. However, UV rays eventually begin to break down the wood. Sunlight, moisture and organic debris contribute to cedar decay. Untreated cedar roofs may last up to 20 years, but cracked and curled shingles have to be replaced regularly. Treating your cedar roof can extend the roof life by 35 to 50 years and minimized the need to frequently replace damaged shingles. Our roof treatment is EPA approved. It protects the shingles from harmful UV rays and resists water absorption that causes warping, cracking and splitting. It also protects against freeze damage which is important for us in Westchester and Fairfield counties.
