Cedar Shake Roofing Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Do Cedar Shake Roofs Last?

Your roof’s longevity depends on the materials used and how well you care for it. Generally, a cedar shake roof can last up to 30 years before needing replacement. For those living in ideal climates with high-quality cedar roofs, the life span can surpass 50 years.

How Are Cedar Shake Roofs Installed?

Cedar shake roof installation involves:

  1. Underlay: Your cedar shake roofing contractor will place a spaced sheathing underlayment on the decking boards beneath the shingles to prevent water damage and give the shingles room for ventilation.
  2. Interlayment:  This layer is placed in between each course of shakes.
  3. Spacing: Next, they will align joints, offsetting the shingles between rows to ensure your roof’s durability.
  4. Coverage: Workers will cover the entire surface of your roof, working around fixtures and chimneys as necessary. 
  5. Cleanup: After installation, they will clean up any debris left behind.
What Maintenance Does Cedar Shake Roofing Require?

Properly maintaining cedar shake roofing is essential for the durability and longevity of your home. To preserve your roof, you’ll need to ensure adequate airflow by clearing the branches, leaves and other debris. Regular roof maintenance, including preventing mold growth and repairing any damage that may have occurred, will help avoid the need for cedar shake roof leak repair. You should also maintain your gutters for increased drainage.

How Much Does a Cedar Shake Roof Cost?

A cedar shake roof may range between $7.50 and $12.50 per square foot, depending on the grade of the shingles you purchase. The most affordable grade is Common, followed by Select and 100% Straight Grain. The 100% Straight Grain shingles, the highest-priced of these options, offer the longest life span and best warranty of any of the grades, so many homeowners find them worth the extra initial expense.
