Why TWP® 200 Is the Best Option for Treating Cedar Roofs

Treating cedar roof shingles is vital for maintaining their natural beauty and strength. Our professionals at Cedar Roof Coatings only use Total Wood Preservative (TWP)® 200 Series to preserve and treat the wooden roofing materials of our clients. This safe, effective product will protect your cedar roof from damage and make it last for years to come.

What Is TWP® 200 Series?

TWP® 200 Series is a protective, deep-penetrating product that our experts use to treat cedar roof shingles or shakes. This professional strength, easy-to-apply treatment guards wooden roofing against the moisture and UV light damage. Our team can apply TWP® 200 Series to your roof to restore the life of your wooden roofing materials and prevent cracking, discoloration, erosion and water absorption.

This defensive agent is an eco-friendly formula that enhances the structural integrity of your roof. TWP® 200 Series also offers UV and moisture protection without producing a film or chipping on your roof.

Benefits of TWP® 200 Series Stain

Your cedar roof has natural oils that allow the color of the shingles to deteriorate naturally to an aesthetically pleasing patina. Over time, UV rays cause the moisture to evaporate, and your shingles will start to lose their brilliancy. You'll need to have an oil treatment applied, such as TWP® 200 Series, to properly restore the natural beauty of your roofing material.

TWP® 200 Series stain contains a unique lubrication substance that penetrates through the grains of wood shingles to enhance their durability and appearance. Paraffin oil provides your cedar roof shingles with enough moisture to restore the natural oils within the shingles to keep them looking their best. Instead of deteriorating from UV and moisture damage over the years, the wooden roof can maintain its natural beauty, thanks to the oils within TWP® 200 Series.

This high-quality treatment protects your cedar roof by:

  • Repelling water to prevent absorption.

  • Strengthening wood grain to guard against peeling.

  • Preserving the cedar's vibrant, natural color.

  • Preventing moss growth and other common cedar roof problems.

Using this method to enhance your cedar roofing's cellular integrity and appearance will improve your home's curb appeal and protect your investment. The semi-transparent, oil-based finish is available in various colors and finishes in case you want to change the appearance of your cedar shingles to complement the design aesthetic of your home.

Why Our Professionals Use TWP® 200 Series for Cedar Roofs

The professionals at Cedar Roof Coatings exclusively use TWP® 200 Series to treat and preserve cedar roofs because of its protective qualities that help lock in the moisture and prevent your cedar shakes from decay. Unlike some other cedar roof treatment products, TWP® 200 Series both protects and preserves your cedar shingles for several years. If your cedar shingles or shakes have taken on any damage or wear and tear over the years, we can bring them back to life with our treatment process.

We use the following system to make your cedar shingles or shakes look brand new:

  1. Clean: Before we apply the stain, we remove all the debris — including mold, mildew, moss and fungus — to restore the wood shingles to their natural color. We use Cedar Wash, an eco-friendly product containing hydrogen peroxide, to clean the stains that may have accumulated on your shingles. After we wash the roof, we'll inspect your property for any areas we may need to fix.

  2. Fix: If we notice any missing or broken shingles, we'll fix your roof before applying the TWP® 200 Series. We can replace up to 20 shingles included in the price of the treatment, along with advice about how to keep your cedar roofing looking its best. We may recommend that you clean your gutters or re-caulk loose columns.

  3. Treat: After a few days, we'll come back and apply TWP® 200 Series by hand for the deepest product preservation. This eco-friendly treatment method will guard your cedar shakes or shingles against future damage from moisture, insects or ultraviolet rays.

As a result of our treatment methods, your cedar roof should last for nearly half a century in ideal weather conditions. If you're new to owning a home with a cedar roof, you need a professional to help you navigate taking care of it. With years of experience in the industry, we'll give you all the information you need to make your roof last for several decades.

Long-Term Benefits of Cedar Roof Preservation and Treatment

Preserving and treating your cedar roof is essential for you to get the most out of this naturally beautiful material. If you live in a wet climate that experiences rain or snow, you should remove the excess water from your roof to prevent mold and mildew growth. You should also remove the debris around your roof so that mold doesn't grow.

There are several reasons why you should take steps to preserve your cedar roof, such as:

  • Extend your roof's life: Due to different types of extreme weather, cedar roof shakes or shingles can lose their natural preservatives within a few years. Oil treatments for cedar roofs prolong your shingles' vibrancy by restoring the moisture content and durability that they lost over time. You would know that you need to treat and repair your shingles if you notice warping, splitting, curling, mold or mildew.

  • Enhance your home's curb appeal: Cedar shingles and shakes have a natural beauty to them that attracts the eye of many potential home buyers. If you don't treat your roof, the shingles could suffer from discoloration or cracks, which could give visitors a negative first impression. Take the proper steps to keep your roof looking fresh before you need to replace it.

  • Protect the inside of your house: Your roof's job is to protect you and your family from the elements, but if it's not in good shape, you may have leaks or water damage in your home. Cracks in your roof could also invite pests into your home that cause destruction and contaminate your belongings. Instead, make sure you have a professional treat your cedar shakes and shingles, so the weather outside won't affect your indoor living space.
