Wood Shakes have been put on roofs for centuries. They can be used in elaborate patterns and truly make a beautiful roof. They were even used on George Washington’s MT. Vernon’s new roof.
Manufactures tout extensive warranty’s of up to 50 years,but buyer beware: read their warranties and you quickly realize it will never apply to you.
We love shake roofs and take lots of pride in laying new shake roofs to the best standards in the industry.
Expect 10 to 15 years maximum based on strictly on the quality of materials available
