- Cedar Wood Roof Treatments – One of the specialties at Picone Painting is the cleaning and protective treatment of cedar roofs.Moisture and sunlight are the two significant problems for cedar roofs.
Over years rain removes the natural preservatives from the wood and leaves it vulnerable to depreciation. Water enters the wood and causes the wood to expand and contract. This expansion and contraction creates cracks in the wood and allows algae, moss and fungi to grow. Left alone their growth will lead to premature roof failure.
The sun’s rays break down the cells in the top layer of the wood which are then washed away by the rain. This then leads to the different shades of “greying” which is actually a visual sign of the deterioration of the wood.
Treatment of your wood roof will protect it from moisture and sunlight damage. Protecting your wood roof not only allows it to look great but can also double the life of your roof.
