Are you considering installing cedar shake roofing? If yes, here are some things you should know first.
Seeing as cedar shake tiles are derived from tree logs, you are already assured that its durability goes unquestioned. Trees are known to live for between 15 years to 50 years or longer. Wood shake roofs tend to have a lifespan of about 30 years on average. With a cedar shake roof, you can be rest assured that you should receive decades worth of service from your cedar roof before requiring another roof replacement!
Ideal for Drier Weather
Austin is a fairly dry area save for some months of the year when it can be rainy or humid. While modern cedar shakes can be treated or coated to make them water-resistant, the original untreated cedar shake tiles tend to age and wither albeit prematurely in wet or humid climates.
Wood Shake Must be Cleaned and Maintained Frequently
To keep your cedar shake roof looking clean and ever vibrant, it must be regularly cleaned and well maintained by an experienced Austin cedar shake roofing contractor. Every 4 to 5 years, your cedar shake tiles may need professional polishing.
However, if you notice a loose shingle, water leaks, or other faults on your roof, it’s advisable to get the issue addressed promptly. This way, you can get more out of your cedar shake roof and avoid premature aging.
May Cost More in Insurance Premiums
Wood shake shake tiles typically come out of the same material people use to feed a bonfire or campfire. For this reason, if a fire breaks out, cedar shake roofing suffers a higher risk than say slate or metal roofing varieties. To protect your home against such uncertainties, insurance companies may charge higher premiums. Understand this before choosing a cedar shake roof.
Lack of Maintenance May Lead to Shortened Roof Lifespan
Cedar shake roofing requires a thorough inspection from an Austin roofing professional at least once every year. The goal is not only to find damage or signs of tear and wear but to also look for insect infestation, rot, or algae and moss growth.
If you skip your annual roof inspections, you risk exposing yourself and your loved ones to health risks brought about by the presence of such hazards.

Texas' #1 TRUSTED ROOFING COMPANY
These are a few of the most frequently asked questions that we get:
Yes! With Austin’s violent storm patterns and yearly inclement weather, the majority of requests that we receive are for storm damage and insurance claims. We provide 100% free estimates and storm damage roofing inspections. We can provide a no-obligation inspection and give you an honest assessment on the health of your roof. Between wind damage from tornadic activity, and hail damage, we have found widespread storm damage across Austin.
Absolutely! One of the most frequently asked questions that we receive from homeowners is “do you offer financing?”. We work with several different financing companies allowing us to offer affordable, low-cost payment plans to our customers. In some cases, you may have the opportunity to defer payments for several months, as well as no money down!
The answer to this question is it truly “depends”. The lifespan that a roofing system will last depends on the roofing material that you have installed on your roof. While an asphalt shingle roof can last 15-20 years, a metal roof can last 40-50 years, while a tile or slate roof can last 50+ years! More than just the roofing material, there are also variables like the grade/quality of material that you used, the craftsmanship of the contractor, as well as any storm activity your roof has been exposed to.
“Should I repair or replace my roof” is one of the most common questions that we get. This answer also depends on each situation, with age being one of the largest factors. A leaking 7-year old metal or shingle roof may have flashing or a section that needs to be repaired. This may be a minor repair. However, a 17-year old leaking shingle roof may require a full replacement if a repair can not made to extend the useful life of your roof.
This depends on the size of your roof, and the roofing material that you decide to go with. In many instances, an asphalt shingle roof can be installed in as little as one day!
