While having some trees cut from over my house, the cherry pickers hydraulic line broke and spilled hydraulic fluid on my roof. Will it hurt my roof? He rinse it off and used some degreaser. The roof is about 5 or 6 years old. help

I'm not a chemist but I don't think it will hurt the roof. Just watch that spot and if you notice any abnormailities call the land scaper.

Why was he on your roof anyways? I will void my warranties if there are signs of excessive foot traffic.

The tree service was over the roof cutting limbs that were hanging over the house. While he was over the roof the hydraulic line to his cherry picker broke and spilled over the roof. He washed it off but certain times of the day you can see where it spilled. I was concerned that it would mess up my shingles. My roof is about 5 or 6 years old. thanks

My point was people shouldn't be walking on your roof. It's a great idea to keep the branches away from the roof so they don't damage it. I'm sorry I don't know how to clean that mess or if it will be a long term problem. I just wanted to point out a problem you didn't know existed, and that is they shouldn't be on your roof.

Thanks for the advice. I did call GAF and they said that the hydraulic fluid could affect the asphalt shingles causing premature gravel loss. Also like you said walking on the roof will cause gravel loss too. Thanks again.

Hydraulic fluid is one of the more corrosive oils that I know of. If it were me, I would make a claim againsty their insurance to get those shingles replaced. I will bet that the underside of the singles shows weepage from the oil soaking through already.

When Grumpy mentioned foot traffic, I think maybe he missed the fact that the tree trimming was done from a cherry picker

Excellence is its own reward!
