Cedar Roof Cleaning, Maintenance & Repair

westchester ny cedar roof cleaning

Westchester Wash and Seal’s cedar roof cleaning service is entirely Eco-friendly and cost-effective.

Our cedar roof cleaning services will not affect your home’s siding, cement, and bricks, nor will it damage your copper gutters or landscaping.

Westchester County is known for its picturesque neighborhoods, classic homes. Many homes are surrounded by lovely traditional landscaping, and all of this greenery plays perfectly off cedar siding and attractive cedar roofing. In growing numbers, Westchester County homeowners are wrapping and topping their homes in beautiful natural cedar; and we are happy to step up and fill the need for cedar roof cleaning, cedar roof staining, and ongoing Cedar shingle maintenance.

Westchester County Cedar Roofing & Siding Maintenance Plans.

Routine and timely maintenance of your cedar shake roof or siding should include inspection, cleaning, treatments, and repair. Staying on top of the care plan best suited for your cedar shake roof or siding will help protect your investment and ensure it lasts as long as it should (30 years or more). 

Neglecting a cedar roof will decrease its lifespan and enduring aesthetic value. 

Here in Westchester, we have a lot of weather to contend with gusts of wind, snow, and changing seasons; each takes a toll on cedar roofing.

Cedar roofs and siding are growing in popularity here in Westchester, NY, and that says something; cedar roofing is one of the oldest, most classic roofing types still used today. Unfortunately, our roofs, no matter their material, be it common durable asphalt, stately slate, or traditional cedar, are up against the worst of the four seasons in Westchester.

Cedar shingle maintenance must be timely and include protective treatments applied every one to three years.
These treatments should include steps to protect and preserve the roof:

  • Water Repellents,
  • Wood Treatments with UV Protection,
  • Fungicides,
  • Algaecides,
  • Fire repellents.
  • Vegetation Removal
  • Roof Cleaning

First and foremost, no roofing or siding material is a perfect solution, and while all roofing and siding types work to emulate natural wood, cedar can't be replicated. Even the best replication is just that a replication.

With that said, the biggest threat to cedar roofing and siding longevity is our extreme Connecticut weather. Be it the summer sun or a winter storm, Westchester faces some form of precipitation, and your cedar roof sits in a perpetual shifting state of wetness and moisture. Both the summer heat and the freezing temperatures of the winter take a toll on your cedar roofing.

How to Maintain Your Cedar Shake Roof & Siding

Protect your Cedar Roof and Siding with Regular Maintenance

As with all things, if you are looking to keep your roof looking and functioning at peak performance, the best defense is proactive upkeep partnered with a maintenance schedule.

Our Cedar Roofing + Siding Cleaning Process:

  • Our cedar roof and siding cleaning services start with a detailed assessment. cedar-roof-siding-cleaning-westchester-ny
  • We will come out, meet with you, and walk around your property; you can show us areas that concern you then we will review your home and present our findings.
  • After any needed repairs are made (typically simple calking and shingle replacement), we will proceed with our cedar roof or siding cleaning and treatment process. Note: we never use pressure on cedar, and no one should!) our eco-friendly cleaning solution takes half a day to complete, then a full 2-3 days to dry.
  • Once dry, we will come back and apply a protective coating (to help create a barrier around your home to keep up unwated moisture and the mold, mildew, and destructive natural elements that can damage your cedar roof and siding.) 

Our cedar roof cleaning and the application of the protective coating significantly enhances the home’s curb appeal. You’ll be surprised by just how good our process is, your cedar roof or siding, or both will regain some of its original luster and youthful hue.

Cedar Roof Cleaning

When it comes to cedar, you of course, want to be sure you are working with experts, and no team is more dedicated to modern technology and best practices than my cedar roofing and siding cleaning team. We take the time, do our research, and hire only the most skilled craftsmen.

  • Westchester Wash and Seal is committed to ecological solutions for environmental challenges. A good cedar roof cleaning can add years to your roof’s life. Of course, a roofing company will say you need a new cedar roof at the first sign of moss or mold – but this is not always true.

A strong roof is a necessity! 

A roof replacement is nothing to rush into; a roof cleaning and protective treatment may be all your cedar roof and siding need. Having your roof and siding inspected is another step to ensuring that a small problem today won’t become a big problem down the road. The saying ‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.’ Holds true here!

I’ve used other power washing companies in Westchester and Westchester Wash and Seal is far and away not only my favorite power washing company to work with – but also the most talented and professional! Last summer they restored my deck which was covered in mildew, making it look better than it ever has, and they did it all with the best price I found! This year they power washed my Westchester home and walkways! Thanks for the great job Jim!
