Weather is brutal on any roof but cedar shake with out proper care and maintenance usually leads to a very expensive roof replacement once the cedar looses its integrity, All cedar shake roofs  regardless of age should be inspected every few years. Soft washing your roof is not just to keep it looking good, when ceder shake roofs become discolored or have moss, lichen and algae growing its actually deteriorating the cedar so when you soft wash the roof your adding service life to the roof system by removing all of that, we do not recommend power washing the high pressure can do more harm then good especially on older roofs!
