Shake Roof Replacement

At PWR, we understand that undergoing a roof replacement or renovation is a major decision. That’s why we’ve taken the time to do the research so that you don’t have to. When deciding on a type of roof, some homeowners opt for shake roofing materials. To help you through this decision process, we’ve included some advantages and disadvantages of cedar shake roofing. We source and provide the best of the best clear vertical grain (CVG) old growth (when possible) CCA pre-treated heavy shakes which are so beautiful when completed.
