Wood Shake Roofing Specialists Serving Tucson, AZ & Surrounding Areas
Wood shakes (also referred to as cedar or cedar shake shingles) are actually not limited to cedar. These can be made from any type of wood. It offers a classic, natural look that has both charm and character. With a rustic look, these will look great in Arizona. Part of the charm is because of the variations in cut, thickness, width, and color of the wood, no two roofs will ever have the exact same look. If you’ve noticed some shingles have become displaced and there could be possible damage to your roof, you’ll want to look into roof repair services similar to the likes of northern California roofing offer, local to you.
Shake roofs are environmentally friendly in the event that the cedar is processed and harvested in a sustainable manner. A sharp contrast to petroleum products for example, made from nonrenewable resources.
Building codes in certain communities do not allow shake singles. Especially in the Southwest, this can be a problem. However, pressure-treated shakes, infused with fire retardant, will meet national fire safety standards.
Shake roofing can be vulnerable to moisture, prone to moss buildup, and insect damage. That is why repair and inspection should happen at routine intervals. Even if a small problem exists, this means that it will not grow to become a much larger one later on.
