Asphalt & Cedar Roofs
Similar in many ways to your exterior siding, your roofs no matter what material they are made from need periodic cleaning, and in some cases sealing. Like siding, the north side of your roof is the most prone to damaging mildew, mold, lichens, moss, etc. This is because it gets the least amount of sun. Then once these organisms take hold they act as a sponge in a sense, holding the moisture longer because of their lack of sun. This results in rot of cedar roofs and damage to the protective coating of asphalt.
When cleaning roofs using the Soft Washing technique is imperative. Otherwise you risk peeling off the protective coating on asphalt or blowing cedar shingles off. At the very least, you risk damaging the cedar shingles now there. Gentle cleaners that kill the root systems of moss, lichens, etc. are imperative. For cedar roofs again because they are so porous, a sealing/waterproofing is recommended. Please call us today for a free evaluation.

For 9 years Mildew Busters™ won Dan’s Papers “Best of the Best” in numerous categories because of the high quality of our work, and our customers dedication to us. After the 9th year we received a call from Dan’s informing us that other companies were complaining and wanted a chance to win. As a result, Dan’s created a new category called “The Hall of Fame” and Mildew Busters™ was the 1st. company to be awarded it, essentially retiring us from future competitions.
We were very grateful to Dan’s for doing this, but more so to our customers who made it possible. We now have numerous “Hall of Fame” awards, something we are very proud and grateful for.
