The Appeal of Cedar Shake Roofing
Aside from its timeless beauty, a cedar shake roof is also very durable, lasting for at least 10 years longer than common roofing materials such as asphalt. Cedar shakes also hold up well in extreme weather conditions including strong winds, heavy rains, hailstorms, snowstorms, and more. If you are looking to save on energy costs, cedar shake installation provides natural insulation that can give you plenty of savings on heating and cooling bills.
However, there are also downsides to cedar shake installation as with any other roofing material. They include:
High initial material and installation cost
Requires regular roof maintenance to prevent mold growth, insect infestation, or rotting wood
- Unrated by fire safety codes
In our over 12 years of service, many of our customers find cedar shake installation as a worthwhile investment with the advantages far outweighing the disadvantage.
Common Signs Your Cedar Shake Roof Needs Repair
Cedar shake is much thicker than cedar shingles, causing the roof to be more durable. But given the natural wear from external forces (weather, nature, etc), your cedar shake roof will require repairs from time to time.
Call our cedar shake roofing contractor team if you notice the following:
Cracks or Splitting: This can happen when the wood expands and contracts over time from moisture and drying. As the wood ages, more cracks and splits will form, weakening the roof.
Fraying: Bottom edge rot can cause your cedar shake roof to fray. Usually microorganisms such as algae, lichen, and moss are the culprit.
- Curling: If you notice your cedar shingles start to curve upward or look distorted, it’s time to call the professionals. UV rays and rain can stress the wood, causing it to curl.
If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to schedule a cedar shake roof repair. Our expert cedar shake roofing contractors are available in King County, Pierce County, Snohomish County, Kitsap County, and the surrounding area. We have the experience and tools necessary to ensure your cedar shake roof is strong and maintains its gorgeous appearance for years to come.
