CCA Treated Shakes

We were happy when the owners of this log cabin style home decided to replace their old shake roof with treated medium shakes.

These shakes are treated against decay and will perform better and look “fresh” longer than un-treated cedar. We use only the finest 100% clear edge grain premium cedar shakes available ensuring the highest quality roofing.

Sheathing Over Ship-lap Decking

Sheathing Over Ship-lap Decking

Sheathing over ship-lap decking, also shows the ridge opened up for ridge venting.

Ship-lap, a type of plank decking installed from the 1930s into the 1960s has been known to cause issues with composition shingles due to its irregularities. The ship-lap, or any other “solid” plank type roof decking, was typically green lumber (not kiln dried) and sometimes re-purposed up onto the roof having been used for concrete forms when building the homes’ foundation.

When new it was actually a nice tight roof deck system. Over time the wood dries out, splits and cracks form, knots fall out and the boards warp and pull free from fasteners. It is common to see a bulge in roofs where the end of a plank has sprung from its anchoring and is now curling away from the roof. Because these boards continue to expand and contract with temperature & humidity the problems just keep getting worse as time goes along.

Most composition shingle manufactures will not warranty their products when installed over old plank type roof decking.

The sure-fire fix is to simply install CDX plywood over the original plank roof decking, eliminating any possible issues in the future. We install the plywood using standard building practices with end seams falling on rafters to provide the strongest, smoothest quality roofing results possible.

 

Raw Cedar Shakes

This project is very fine example of “raw” cedar shakes. The customer, who works in advertising, coined the phrase “people love the sound of rain on our roofs.” Thanks, we couldn’t have said it any better.

Two Crews Working Side by Side

These pictures were taken at the start of the project and also mid-way through. We use our own dump trucks, not dumpsters. The typical re-roof project takes 2 – 3 days. Use of our own dump trucks allow the customer have their driveway back overnight, this is not possible if there is a dumpster parked on site for the duration. One of the little things we do to try to make the inconvenience of re-roofing somewhat less disrupting.

Roofing Rot Repair

Hillside Roofing Rot Repair

This picture was taken during our initial inspection. The roof itself doesn’t look too bad, right? Our first indication of a potential problem was the complete lack of attic venting.

Hillside Roofing Rot Repair

The lack of ventilation traps moisture inside the attic feeding various forms of nastiness. The attic structure is rotting from the inside out. The source of moisture is usually not from a leaky roof, but actually from the living spaces below, migrating up into the attic where if not properly vented it can condense on surfaces promoting rot.

Here we are repairing the damage due to insufficient attic ventilation, replacing the ridge beam and then moving on to the rafter damage. We have the skills to repair just about anything.

Always Remember:

"It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better."
