CEDAR SHAKE ROOFS INSTALL

The roof is not just a roof, and it is the first thing that people notice about your home. It is the look of your roof that develops the first impression of your home. There have been many materials in trend to give a chic look to roofs. Cedar shake roofs used to be common, but now, due to rising prices of cedarwood is not being installed that frequently. People are now more inclined towards cheap metal materials and the variety of colors it offers.

But nothing can beat the rustic look cedar shake roofs creates. It is also a tricky material to work with; not everyone can handle it and install it properly. Cedarwood has a natural quality of insulation. It keeps the home warm during winter NC months and cooler during summers. This wood contracts and expands with changing weather. So, if it is not installed correctly, it can cause leakages and damage your home. Cedar shake roofs tend to keep your homes quieter as compared to asphalt shingle roofs. It is also a natural hail resistance material. If installed properly, it can last up to 50 years or so.

Here is a quick guide to help you avoid a few major mistakes while installing cedar shake roofs.

• Let Is Acclimatize Before Installation

This is the major mistake people make while installing cedar shake roofs. As we have mentioned above, this wood expands and contracts based on the weather condition. Let the wood shakes acclimatize by leaving it outdoors, covered, and lifted from the ground.

• Use Proper Nails

It is best to use aluminum, stainless steel, or galvanized nails for cedarwood. Preferably, use ring shanks with the nails to prevent falling out of pins when the wood expands or contracts.

• Avoid Using Nail Guns

Nail guns are not advisable to use for cedar shake roofs as they fire too far into the shingle, causing it to break. Hand nail the shingles with two nails into each shingle.

• Allow for Ventilation

If you do not allow ventilation for the cedar roof, it can cause shingle warping and damaging. It is also necessary so that the shingles can dry. You can use a cold roof system for this purpose and to keep the temperature balanced.Cedar roof shakes are not cheap to install. Therefore, you must retainall of the above points in mind to avoid any mishap.
