Skywalker Roofing NC has installed hundreds of wood shakes and cedar roofs to make our customers’ houses stand out among others in their neighborhood. Many homeowners in the Triad NC have spoken to us about the lifespan of cedar roofs. While it is true that cedar roofs can last up to 30 years, it takes excellent craftsmanship and high quality roofing material to make wood shake roofs last that long. Skywalker Roofing understands the significant upfront costs of the expensive cedar roofs and hence we are fully committed with our excellent and knowledgeable crew to install cedar roofs that last long.
Wood shakes are manufactured from western red cedar, cypress, pine and redwood trees. Shakes are split from logs and reshaped by manufacturers for commercial use. They are thicker at the butt end than shingles; generally, one or both surfaces are split to obtain a textured effect. A split and resewn shake has a split face and sawn back. A taper sawn shake has a natural taper and is sawn on both sides. Shakes are basic wooden shingles made from split logs. They are used all over the world and here in North Carolina by Skywalker Roofing. Most wood shakes and shingles have been treated with fire retardant and chemical preservatives to make them less susceptible to fire or decay. They fight off moisture and are environmentally friendly because they are a renewable resource.
Skywalker Roofing can help you cut down the cost of your wood shake replacement. For a fraction of the replacement cost, we can restore your roof, if the condition of the shake and shingles allows for it. So how do we know if we can restore rather than replace, through a thorough roof inspection.
Once we determine if your Wood Shake Roof can be restored, we provide you with a written estimate of the work involved in cedar roof restoration. Once the work begins, we clean the moss, dirt, and debris using our environmentally-friendly cleaning process. After cleaning, a thorough inspection of your roof follows. Any damaged, rotting, lose or missing wood shakes are repaired or replaced. We then apply a rust preventive primer to valleys and flashing along with checking and curing any skylight seals and chimney flashings. Our crew ensures that we properly protect your surroundings before applying cedar shake preservative. This penetrating oil based treatment will restore water repellency, prevent the re-growth of wood destroying mold, mildew and fungus and protect the roof from photo-degradation and hydrolysis by sunlight.
Reliable Residential Roof Repair Company
Roofs not last forever, but if you have your roof inspected twice yearly, you can extend its lifespan and delay replacing your entire roof. Roofing contractors can perform inspections and repairs that will ward off any excess damage and save you the cost of a full replacement. A roof repair can be minor, such as replacing a few missing shingles that have fallen to the ground or large such as a hole in the roof, requires more time and labor from your Preferred roofing company.
