We Know the Job

Though there are several benefits of using cedar shakes in roofing, one of the most important things to consider is maintenance. Cedar shakes roofing requires periodic maintenance. To extend the life of the roof regular removal of tree debris, and trimming of excessive overhanging trees is necessary. If these roofs are not cleaned regularly, moss or mould might build up on the surface which will slow down the roof’s ability to shed water. Eventually, the shakes might rot much sooner than expected. Our experts can carry out roof repairs with utmost care and perfection.

Installing shakes is a tricky job and only an experienced roofer can help you with a neat job. When laying shakes, it is important to notice that there is no underlayment. Instead, cedar shakes require interlayment. We offer shakes in the following sizes:
