What is Cedar Shake Roofing?

Cedar shake is a roofing system made up of wooden shingles in a rectangular form, built-in overlapping layers of different thickness and length, with a waterproof layer.

Benefits of using Cedar Shake Roofing

You stand to gain many things when you choose to use a cedar shake roof over other roofing systems. Most of which include:

  • Durability: Cedar shake roofing boasts of a long life span of 30 – 50 years, which is quite a long span compared to asphalt roofs. Its life span and durability is also dependent on usage and maintenance.

  • Although they are made of wood, cedar poses high resistance to insect attacks, weather influence, wet Conditions, and storms.

  • Environmental Friendly: Cedar Roofs are good at insulating the house without radiating much heat or accumulating high temperatures in the home.

  • Exquisite Exterior: If you want your roof to stand out in the neighborhood, then you should consider getting a cedar shake roof. A cedar shake roof complements any building structure-whether traditional or contemporary.

  • Adds to property value: In comparison to other asphalt shingles, cedar shake roofing increases your property’s value-not because of its cost but because of its ability to last for a long time. The amazing aspect of using a cedar shake roofing is that the older it gets, the shiner it looks.

Things to Consider About Cedar Shake Roofing

Cedar Shakes are beautiful and durable, but there are certain things you need to consider before purchasing one. While trying to buy a cedar shake roof, you need to decide its size, shape, and quality preference. You may need the help of a professional Indy roofer to help you make the best choice. There are two types of cedar shakes: premium cedar shakes, wood shake and number 1 Cedar Shakes.

Both types are of high standards and durability, but premium cedar shakes are of 20% edge grain. But come in different price ranges, but a 100% edge offers more longevity. While purchasing a cedar shake roof, you need to confirm if it is treated with CCA (Chromated Copper Arsenate). CCA treatment helps prevent an attack from fungus, mildew, insect, and mold. Get a Cedar Shake Roofing estimate today. You will love your roofing repair and installation experience with us.

Common Roofing questions

Below we’ve put together some answers to the most frequently asked roofing questions that we receive:

It depends, however in most cases, yes. Your insurance carrier will typically cover hail damage as it is an “act of god”, and while the damage may not be immediately visible, it can lead to long-term issues. Hail damage can be difficult to detect with an un-trained eye, but over-time, as the shingle is exposed to the sun’s UV rays, your roof can experience rotting underlayment, decking, mold and water entering your home.


Absolutely! Many of our customers come to us from referrals of neighbors and friends that we have helped with their storm damaged roofs. We specialize in storm damage restoration, and are trained in how to identify and spot hail and wind damage. If you are looking for storm damage roofing professionals, you found the right company!

The answer is, “it depends”. If you have a 5 year old leaking roof, you may have a minor problem causing that leak spot. That may entail only an inexpensive and quick repair.  If you have a 15 year old roof that suffered hail or wind damage, it may require full replacement. Age is one of the biggest factors when it comes to roof replacement.

We use Owens Corning Duration shingles, and are pleased to be able to offer lifetime limited warranties! Ask a sales rep during your consultation for more information about our workmanship warranties, as well as material warranties! Not every company offers the same thing – we take pride in our premium warranty options!

One question we frequently get is what if the homeowner essentially does nothing. If your roofing system is compromised, you can begin to see water spots forming on your ceiling, and leaks entering your home. This can lead to worsening damage, as well as water damage and mold formation in your home. Wind damage can lift your shingles, and cause a break in the seals, as well as completely blow shingles off of your roof. Wind can diminish the effectiveness of your roof to divert water from your home, and is why insurance will typically cover wind damage as an “act of god”.
