The world’s most enduring roofing material was made by nature: cedar. Cedar is prized for its natural beauty and durability in tough climate conditions.
Installing cedar shakes is a little more complicated than roofing with architectural composition shingles. Roof Life has 25 years of experience installing what we believe to be the best quality roofing material for your home. Our workmanship will exceed your expectations and we’ve got the testimonials to prove it.
The real secret to cedar roofing is to find and use the highest grade shakes or shingles available. That’s not as simple and easy as it sounds because they are heavily guarded. In the roofing world they are like gold!
We bring them in from Canada on super big trucks and then we hand-deliver them to your roof using state-of-the-art technology.
Another secret to cedar roofing is to properly maintain the shakes to prevent algae growth prolong the roofs life.
The third secret to installing the best cedar roof in town is to match the components. For example, our underlayment is called Feltex. It is fifty times stronger than the industry’s thirty-pound shake felt.
Feltex will last as long as a good shake will, felt paper will not.
The bottom starter course on a roof stays wet longer than any part of the roof, so we use the best wood and have it pressure treated.
