Cedar is known for its longevity, strength, and natural beauty. Cedar is typically grown in a domesticated fashion and harvested with the utmost environmental responsibility. The natural elegance of cedar has earned its reputation and standing as such a prevalent material for home construction and roofing. With proper maintenance and care, cedar can last a lifetime - and much longer.
However, even a great wood like cedar will wear over time. If you have any damaged cedar on your home or building, it’s time to call Cedar Savers. We can address the causes of the problems you are facing, share our ideas for solutions and estimate the costs of repair with accuracy.
Whether you have damaged wood or you are simply interested in preserving the wood that is on your home, Cedar Savers can get the job done. Let's talk about it.
Cedar Signs of Trouble
There are obvious signs that your roof is in need of attention and maintenance. Ignoring the clear cries for help of a compromised roof can lead to bigger and more costly problems for your home in the future.
Cupping & Curling
If shingles begin to "cup" or curl, your roof needs rehydration. A properly hydrated roof is a healthy one.
The ridge cap shingles at the peak of your roof last 8-12 years, and should be replaced to prevent your roof from leaking.
Moss & Fungus
Moss and fungus must be prevented from growing on your roof. The effects on your cedar roof can be devastating.
An untreated cedar roof absorbs 4-5 times more water than a treated roof when it rains, adding extra weight that can weaken the roof's structure.
