What Green Bay Homeowners Need to Know about Cedar Shake Roofing
A cedar shake roof is one of the most eco-friendly roofing materials you can choose because they’re entirely recyclable. In addition to lasting at least 10 years longer than asphalt shingles, they also look better and insulate better. For many homeowners, their extended lifespan makes them worth the higher cost.
Besides the higher initial cost, the only drawback to cedar roofing is the maintenance required. Moss, mold and mildew tend to grow on cedar shake, especially if the roof is shaded from the sun most of the day. We can apply treatments to inhibit the spore growth, but cedar shake roofs will still require cleaning from time to time. In most cases, getting on the roof and sweeping away the moss with a broom is sufficient.
Overhead Solutions does free yearly roof inspections on every roof we install. Rest assured if your cedar shake roof ever needs repair or cleaning, we’ll get the job done right.
Is there a difference between a shake and a shingle?
Although the terms “shake” and “shingle” are often used interchangeably, there is a difference. Cedar shingles are sawn on both sides and thinner at the butt than a shake, while a typical shake is split on one or both sides. There are exceptions, though, specifically: tapersawn shakes can be sawn on both sides, depending on how they’re made and their dimensions. Although shakes are made by hand, most manufacturers use power tools. There are two sizes of shakes: “medium” shakes measure a nominal ½" at the butt, while “heavy” shakes measure ¾" at the butt.
