Why Orange You Going to Stain Your Roof?

Staining Your Cedar Shake Roof is Not a Great Idea…Here is Why

The Problem:

Your neighbor just had some stuff sprayed on his roof and it looks pretty spiffy. It looks almost like a new roof! But here is the problem with pigmented products when applied to cedar shakes: they fade in irregular patterns after one to two years. That’s why your neighbor is going to be pissed in about three years. It is possible to have your roof stained orange and have it be successful and long-lasting. We have done it. All else held equal, we advise our clients to steer clear of colored roof products. Here are five examples from local homes where the orange roof didn’t work out well. Done by others, of course.

The Solution:

Don’t stain your roof orange.
