Denver Cedar Shake Roofing: How they Differ from Shingles
If you’re looking for the best alternative when installing a new roof, you might have heard of Denver cedar shake roofing. But, what exactly is it? How does it differ from traditional wood panel roofing? And, what is the difference between Denver cedar shake roofing and traditional shingle roofs?
Not only can we answer these questions, we can help you determine if Denver cedar shake roofing is the best alternative for your home or your business, when the time comes to install your new roof.
What is Denver Cedar Shake Roofing?
Cedar shake wood shingles are basically similar in appearance to wood shingle/tiles roofs. Shake refers to the board on which the shingle is nailed onto when the installation takes place. The primary difference is that they are larger in size and have a more rugged appearance. Furthermore, they vary in size, shape, and dimensions. Therefore, no two roofs are going to look alike with cedar shake roofing
If you want something that’s rugged, can withstand the elements, appears natural, and is different in appearance, you’re going to want to consider Denver cedar shake roofing for your home or business.
Why You Need to Hire a Professional to Install it
Cedar shake roofing is extremely rare. Since many of the wood shingles are imported from Canada and other regions, it’s difficult to get these wood boards in high quantities. Apart from working with the right suppliers and manufacturers, we also guarantee the proper installation process. We will
- – Utilize the right equipment to fit the wood panels
- – Work with the right tools to ensure we properly place them
- – Work diligently to ensure the job is done properly and safely to protect your roof
Additionally, we have experienced roofing technicians who are familiar with the different grains of wood. We know how to fit the shingles, how to place them, and how to nail them safely, to avoid breakage or other issues during the installation process.
Why Choose Denver Cedar Shake Roofing
It’s different! The material not only looks good, it is durable as well. Cedar wood is long-lasting and sturdy. It is not going to warp easily, nor is it going to crack or damage under pressure. Furthermore, it can withhold its shape over time, and it doesn’t fade with UV rays. It can withstand the elements well, so even in the rough winters and bright summer season, you don’t have to worry that your new roof is going to get damaged.
Proper Fit and Installation
You can’t choose just any wood panels to install on your roof. They have to be properly measured. Remember, these panels are available in multiple sizes and dimensions. Therefore, hiring a roofer who will measure your roof, discuss the proper size, placement, and installation process, is the only way to ensure the job is going to be done properly. And, we will work with you so that you understand the installation process, how long it is going to take, and what steps we’re going to take, to ensure it is fitted onto your roof properly.
Preparing the Roof for Installation of Cedar Shake Roofing
Many roofers would simply place the cedar shake roofing on top of the current roof on your home or business. Not only will this cause it to shift, it can cause it to deteriorate over time. We will
- – Remove the current roofing material
- – Level your roof
- – Measure the Denver cedar shake roofing
- – Properly cut and fit the panels
- – Utilize the right materials and equipment to ensure it adheres onto the roof
When properly installed, your new Denver cedar shake roofing can last for 20+ years. Additionally, it is going to look great, and it is a roof that is going to look different than everything you see surrounding your home or business.
