Replacing Cedar Shingles Or Shakes

Some homeowners may attempt to replace an individual cedar shake or cedar shingle themselves or have a friend with roofing knowledge do it, this type of do-it-yourself roof repair could void your roofing warranty. Cedar roofing requires special skill and care during installation. Even if it’s just a few shingles, a cedar specialist, like NMC Exteriors, should perform the install.

Here are other key reasons why only cedar roof experts should replace your cedar roofing shingles and shakes:

  • We know the replacement requirements for your roof design. Even if only one shake is damaged, sometimes the entire row of shakes or shingles needs to be replaced to ensure proper performance.
  • We know the weak spots for different roof types and how to properly replace the cedar roofing to ensure that fasteners won’t fail and lead to roof leaks.
  • We can recognize if other roofing material is about to fail and replace it as well.
  • We know how to perform shimming and other roof repair methods according to the style of roof on your home and its condition.
  • We know the underlying problems to look for that may be causing damage to your cedar shingles or shakes.
  • We know storm damage from hail, wind, water and fire.  How to properly file a claim; meet insurance adjusters, supplement, and final bill insurance companies. To learn more go to our claims guide page.

Signs of Cedar Shingles or Shake that NEED replacement

If one or more of the shingles or shakes on your cedar roof are showing any of these signs, it’s time to swap them out for new ones.

  • Splitting - If the split has rounded edges and the interior is a dull orange or grayish color, then it’s a result of natural weathering. However, if the split has sharp edges and a light orange color interior, then it’s an impact split, probably caused by hail. You should contact your insurance company to see if the replacement is covered under your policy.
  • Curling or cupping - This occurs when a shingle or shake curls upward or looks distorted. Curling and cupping are part of the cedar wood’s natural weathering and aging process. They are signs of wood stress caused by the sun’s UV rays and rain. However, if you can see the roofing felt or roof deck, then other problems may exist. If significant cupping or curling appears right after installation, it’s a sign of a poor install. That’s why it’s so important to have a roofing company with expertise in installing cedar roof shingles and shakes, such as the NMC Exteriors, install your cedar roof system. Our precise installation methods ensure a correct install for the style of your roof.
  • Cracks or splitting - This is a result of the wood expanding and contracting over time from moisture and ensuing drying. Cracks and splits are part of the natural cedar roof aging process. When tiny hairline cracks get larger, cedar shake or shingle replacement is highly recommended.
  • Fraying - This is caused by bottom edge rot. The decay is often the result of microorganisms, like moss, lichen or algae, that are left untreated. Bottom edge rot is common on homes where the roof receives mostly shade and never dries out completely after a rainfall.

Perhaps the best feature of cedar roofing is its cost-effective replacement of individual cedar shingles and shakes with new ones as needed. This saves on purchasing a completely new roof. Another great benefit of cedar roofs is the visible signs that let you know it’s time to replace certain cedar shakes or shingles. Doing so in a timely fashion ensures your cedar roof system will outperform its life expectancy.

Benefits of cedar roofing

  • Cedar is the only roofing material that can be maintained to prolong its service life.
  • Cedar offers the highest R-Value (insulation) of any common roofing material, typically 4x that of typical asphalt shingles.
  • Offers the timeless authenticity of a natural material at a low price relative to other natural materials such as clay or stone.
  • Offers supreme wind and hail resistance.
