ROOF MAINTENANCE

Should I clean and treat my roof every five years?

Treating a wood shake roof is a waste of time, money and in some cases, the treatment actually does damage to the roof, depending on how the treatment was applied, and depending on how the roof was cleaned. If it was cleaned with a power wash, you did more damage than good to the roof. Your best bet is to stop treating the roof. If you think the roof needs some repair, then ask some contractors to check it out. But make sure they are contractors who don’t do power washing and “treating.” The contractor will be able to tell you if any repairs are needed and how long you could expect the roof to last.
