Roof Stain vs. Natural Shake Color

Posted September 9, 2010 by Patrick Morin
Let Us Help

Not all roofs are created or look equal, but Roof Life of Oregon helps bring out the all-nature look in your cedar shake roof. The all-natural, light ash gray color, is the healthiest possible state for your roof. When you stain, you feel the pain.

A dark rich colored roof may be more appealing, but we believe making your roof look good, last long, and work right is more important than simply having a good looking roof. The analogy I like to use to help explain the harm a stain puts on your roof is the example of tanning. You have the option of using a tanning bed versus simply using the natural light of the sun. They both provide an appealing hue, but one can lead to cancer and the other provides health beneficial Vitamin D. Which would you chose?

A roof stain is simply a way to cover up the problem areas on your roof without having to repair them. To you, the homeowner, it sounds like you’re getting a smoking deal when in reality you’re paying a roofing contractor to cover up the damage. It costs you more in the long run to have your roof stained because your roof will degradate at least twice as fast.

Help your roof move forward and slow the degradation process with the all-natural non-invasive roof maintenance system of Roof Life of Oregon. To learn more about our roof maintenance call (503) 925-0125 or submit a free roof estimate form.
