Cedar Shake Roof Replacement

Cedar shake roofs are without a doubt, beautiful and timeless. They don’t trap moisture, they allow air to flow freely, and improve interior comfort, making them an optimal choice for nearly anyone. 

However, as durable as cedar shakes are, they won’t last forever. If the roof has been compromised or repairs are not cost-effective, than it’s best to replace it entirely. It’s also wise to replace the roof if the cedar shakes have curled upwards because once this happens, they’re no longer effective at blocking out debris and rain. 

Replacing Cedar Shakes

In one situation, we had a customer who was having a home addition built that would dramatically change the roofline from the street view. They were concerned about not being able to match the color of the shakes that had been naturally weathered as part of the normal fading process the wood goes through.

To solve this problem, we suggested removing each shake shingle from the back of the roof prior to the remodel. We then packaged and stored them, and upon the construction project’s completion, reinstalled the weathered shakes on the front side of the addition so that the aesthetic look (from the street) was obtained, and the curb appeal wasn’t reduced. The rear side of the house’s roof was done in all new shake shingles and were allowed to weather over time, which was fine because no one could see that from the street.

Cedar Shake Roof Replacement Steps

  • We installed new shakes on the back of the house over the backside of the addition where they are hidden from view.
  • Installed cedar breather underlayment to ensure a longer life out of the cedar shakes, and installed copper flashing to match existing flashing details.

How do I find a reliable roofer in my area?

Ask up to three roofing contractors for an estimate. During the meeting, ask each of them which materials they would recommend you use for your project. Also consider getting recommendations from friends, family, neighbors, or a business association you trust.

How many quotes should you get for a new roof?

For the replacement of your roof, we would recommend getting at least 2 and a maximum of 3 different quotes from different companies. Keep in mind, that you're not going to get the same price from two contractors.

How long does it take to tear off and replace a roof?

An asphalt shingle roof can be torn off and replaced in one day. It's possible for a roofing crew of 5-6 to tear off and replace an average home (3,000 square feet or less) of asphalt shingle roof in a single day if it's a clear, hot day.

How often should roofs be replaced?

You'll get the longest possible roof life if your roof is properly installed, ventilated, and maintained. Depending on what kind of roofing material you have, you shouldn't need to replace the roof for around 20 years.

What are the benefits of local roofing companies near me?

Using a local roofing company can help to support local businesses and create jobs in the local community. In addition, local roofers are very familiar with the weather patterns in the area and what materials will be most suitable for those conditions.
