More About Cedar Roof Restoration:

STA BRITE® is a pigmented, water-repellent, weather resistant treatment that is specifically formulated to provide lasting protection to cedar wood roofs, siding, and fencing from elemental forces.

It's natural earth-derived pigment system and additional protectants shield the wood from ultraviolet (UV) light, ultimately increasing wood surface life by preventing erosion and deterioration caused by harsh sunlight. The treatment's mild bleaching properties also help prevent build up of wood surface stains. Re-treating every three to five years will keep the wood beautiful, solid and intact.

Sta Brite R contains no heavy mineral or lubricating oils which may have an offensive odor and, when vaporized, represent an environmental hazard. Instead, Sta Brite® R prevents the splitting and checking of wood by limiting water infiltration and harmful sunlight. It is designed to work with the sun by reflecting harmful rays while simultaneously utilizing the sun's natural bleaching qualities to prevent unsightly stains.

The Maintenance Myth:

Although naturally occurring extractives make cedar more durable than other wood species, it is not immune to rapid discoloration from exposure to sunlight and moisture-induced degradation. Unfortunately, many property owners are led to believe that cedar/shake roofs and other exposed surfaces are relatively "maintenance-free" or that no worthwhile remedial treatment is available.

Beauty And Protection That Lasts:

Envirowash restores cedar roofs of all sizes of homes in all areas of central Virginia including Richmond, Hanover, Chesterfield, and Williamsburg. The renewed look and attractive appearance of a Sta Bite®R treated roof will last many years without concern for VOC emissions. Your treatment applicator will place you on a 4 – 7-year maintenance schedule suitable for your area. Basic maintenance involves periodic removal of leaves and other debris from the roof and re-treatment with Sta Brite®R. Properly maintained, your cedar roof can last 50 years or more.

Thank you for your interest in cedar roof cleaning and maintenance in Richmond Virginia. When architectural wood is properly treated, there is less stress on our diminishing wood supply. Your conservation and concern for the environment are important to future generations.

Environmental Responsibility:

Exterior wood treatment products are either oil-based or water-based. Proponents of oil-based products may claim that oil systems do a better job of controlling cupping and warping by replenishing the natural oils in the wood. Since these natural oils account for less than three percent of the total mass, there is not much validity to the concept of oil replacement. Both types of products can protect wood by preventing and controlling the degrading action of moisture, air pollution, and sunlight.

In recent years, however, government regulators have moved to decrease a number of volatile organic emissions (VOC's) compound evaporating into our air. Many of the oil based roof treatment products contributed to the air pollution and have been re-formulated to reduce emissions of VOC's – in many cases compromising their original effectiveness. Other oil-based products are limited due to their potential fire hazards.

COMPOSITE ROOFING


composite roofing 1 envirowash-composite-roof-cleaning

As a Class 'A' pressure washing company, Envirowash, Inc. has our own proprietary process using low pressure, heated water, and a mild solution to gently and safely remove roof stains without any damage to shingles. We guarantee it. Envirowash cleans your roof to remove stains, mold, mildew and all organic matter so your stained roof will look new again. Stubborn roof stains are cleaned easily by Envirowash's proprietary roof cleaning solution. Your roof may have ugly and damaging roof stains. We clean fungus, moss, mildew, and algae from your roof and add years of life to your roof shingles. Sunlight obstructions, such as overhangs, shade trees, or even a northern exposure provide perfect conditions for the unsightly build-up of moss, fungus, and algae on your roof.

Envirowash will extend the life expectancy of your roof by cleaning green, white, or black patches of fungus which will discolor the roof surface and break down its fibers. Moss, fungus and algae can penetrate wood or composition roof surfaces – weakening fibers, wearing off the shingles, and curling, rounding, or cracking off corners.

Envirowash will gently wash your roof using low pressure, mild detergents to effectively remove those stubborn fungus stains. This process will restore its original beauty and avoid early aging and premature roof replacement.

CONCRETE

concrete washingAs a Class 'A' pressure washing company, Envirowash cleans Concrete Surfaces in Richmond, Williamsburg Virginia and surrounding areas.

Pressure Washing Concrete can make a dramatic difference. Most concrete surfaces accumulate dirt so slowly that it is difficult to notice a change in their appearance. After cleaning the cement, however, many are shocked at just how dirty the cement was prior to the cleaning. Many people, as a result, will schedule periodic cleaning to keep their concrete patios, steps, and walkways clean appearance.

Envirowash, Inc. gently cleans your concrete surfaces and pressure washed with at least 3,000 psi with a flow rate of at least four gallons per minute. Many heavily soiled concrete surfaces may require higher flow rates of 5 or 6 gallons per minute, but generally, 4 gallons per minute is usually sufficient. Envirowash uses a proprietary chemical solution that is environmentally friendly, will not harm plants, pets or people and cleans stubborn concrete stains including oil, grease, dirt, rust stains, algae, and other tough stains.

DECKS

Deck 350  deck  deck1

Envirowash, Inc. will protect your wood deck with proper pressure washing, quality stain, and sealers. Decks, like all wood surfaces, need to be properly maintained. Decks are subject to the damaging effects of weather, so it is critical to have your deck pressure washed and sealed on a regular basis. Poorly maintained decks can quickly turn gray as it deteriorates due to dirt, mold, and algae which can gradually tear apart the surface of the wood. We will thoroughly clean and wash with a pressure washer to remove dirt, grime, and soil that has been embedded deep into the wood's grain. We clean or strip your deck's existing finish using cleaners that are safe around your landscaping. The result is a vibrate, bright deck which we then apply a sealer that will prevent future deterioration.
