I was just about to go to bed, but someone started posting all these really interesting questions. It's like driving by a horrible car accident, you really dont want to look, but thers something thats so tantalizing about the whole thing.

Carefully, when it's dry, free of mold and you're tied off appropriately. I've always been more afraid of slate, personally.

We don't have cedar shingles around here. People think they look stupid. They do have metal roofs though. And asphalt.

Corks or an articulate boom. I really do not like walking cedar shingles because most of the time they were not properly kept in good condition and will fall apart with weight.

2 surfaces not to use chlorine to clean...cedar shake roofs and metal roofs.

I did a ton of Cedar Roofs in the late 70's and early 80's. I use to mix a cocktail of Linseed oil, mineral spirits, japan dryer, and this nasty copper powder in five gallon buckets and spray with low pressure using wooden ladders that hooked over the ridges. I was a lot lighter then and never damaged a shingle. Now I see roof guys use bucket lifts and spay TWP or mop it on. We have a ton of cedar roofs in our market. They are big business and demand good money. Product of choice for our guys is the TWP as it is slow dry, good UV resistance, won't lap, and competitive. Pressure cleaning with a wood restorer and brightener is the prep for the most part. We did Stew Leanards Roof in Norwalk and Danbury and were 800 gallons each. Still look good after 7 years but it's time to do again.
