This is our roof job.
There are two reasons for fixing the shakes rather then replacing them
with a new roof.
- This style of house, Craftsman, should have a shake roof.
- These are considered old growth shakes and are of a quality you would
have a hard time finding.
Rather then replace the shakes we had them treated.
These are the steps -
Here they have replaced broken or bad looking
shakes with new high quality shakes from Canada seeing the US is no
longer harvesting old growth redwoods.
Here the roof has been steam cleaned and a
few more shakes replaced.
Finally the roof is treated with a fire
retardent and sealer. It comes with an 11 year guarantee plus we were
told it should last much longer then that.
