Cedar roof resoration

excaliburApril 29, 2009

My roof is getting pretty old. It hasn't started leaking yet but I'm sure it's coming within the next few years. There is a company that had quote me to do a restoration on it. They said what they do is lightly preasure wash the entire roof, replace any shakes that are to far gone, replace the ridge cap and then seal the shakes with a tinted sealant. I asked a couple people loacally but haven't heard any one saying they thought it was a good idea. I have seen quite a few house done. Any thoughts or expertise would be great.

Thanx

My husband is in the business of restoring roofs and if done right, yes this will work. You may have algae on your roof as well and getting it cleaned and restored will actually add some life to your roof.
