Cedar Roof Restoration Redmond

We recently completed a cedar roof restoration  Redmond, WA that offered us some very unique challenges. The pitch of the roof was a 9/12, one of the hardest pitches to clean.Safety was a serious concern and complying with industry rules on being harnessed off offered us some problems on quickly and safely restoring this roof.

Safety Issues

Here’s a list of some challenges cleaning steep cedar roofs offer that normal pitch roofs don’t:

  • Cedar is extremely slippery when wet.
  • Not enough safety straps or straps in the wrong area.
  • Power washing the normal way ( facing down is largely ineffective).

So meeting these challenges head on we come up with a customized safe solution to this cedar roof restoration Redmond, here’s how we dealt with the above issues:

Problem Solution
Cedar slippery when wet.  Korkers, shoes with spikes.
Not enough safety Straps. Installed double D-ring straps where needed.
Power washing downwards was ineffective.  Used a rock climbers belt along with safety harness.

The roof turned out perfectly and the job went flawlessly when planning was made a priority. In total  this cedar roof restoration Redmond was done on time, on budget and most importantly done safely.

Restoring a cedar roof offers some challenges that normal roofs do not especially when the roof has a steep pitch. These types of jobs aren’t the type you learn on as you go. To date we have safely, and properly restored over 60 cedar roofs.
