Wood Roof Repairs:
All maintenance and repairs should be left to the experienced. Walking on a cedar roof can be tricky and can also damage a roof -- even one in good condition. Contractors inexperienced with wood may damage surrounding materials. Individual damaged, loose, missing, cupped or curled shingles and shakes can be quickly replaced by an experienced roofing contractor. New materials can be blended with the old to some degree with this simple formula:
Dissolve one pound of baking soda in a half-gallon of water. Dip, brush or spray the replacement materials and lay them in the sun. After about 4 hours, the shingles should permanently turn gray.
