Not every cedar roof that is due for replacement gets replaced with a composition roof. Many homeowners chose to have a new cedar roof installed. Considering that the premium quality cedar shakes used by All Surface ( if regularly maintained by our gentle methods and using our proprietary CedarGuard treatment) can reasonably be expected to last at least 30 to 35 years, re-roofing with cedar is a very viable option.
Here is an example of a typical, tired old cedar roof in Portland.
And here is the new cedar roof we installed after carefully tearing this old roof off:
You can see why the homeowner wanted to stay with cedar. The cost was only 10-15% more than if they had converted to a quality composition roof. However, the value of their home is now a little higher from having a cedar roof. Plus, cedar is now a well managed, renewable resource, making their roofing decision fairly green.
We would be happy to discuss the available options for you if you are ready for a new roof. Please give All Surface Roofing and Construction a call today.
