Cedar Shake Roofing

Cedar Shake Roofing

Cedar Shake roofing has been available from the beginning and was very popular before asphalt came on the scene. Cedar Shake is available in various thicknesses and offers a distinguished look.

A cedar shake roof should be serviced every three to five years removing bad shakes and sealing the roof. Cedar Shake is offered as a very high end product line and is often used for new construction in exclusive subdivisions.

Even with regular maintenance most Cedar Shake roofs will have a life of less than 25 years. There are new composite shake roofs of fiberglass that are being installed for those that want to replace their cedar shake with a similar look.
