Shake Experts Inc got its start in February of 1999 by noted roofing expert, Chris Johnsen, who started in the industry in 1994. We proudly became the first roofing company solely dedicated to the care, maintenance, and installation of pine and cedar shakes. We took up this challenge due to the inexperience of many roofing companies with shakes that saw them as unrepairable. We also wanted to offer homeowners a viable, less expensive alternative to re-roofing.
We believe in our work. That is why we stand behind the many thousands of warranties we have issued, following our maintenance services for owners of Shake homes
Chris has extensive hands-on experience with pine and cedar shakes. He has earned Certificates of Recognition from Sintech Inspection Ltd for grading Western Red Cedar shakes, as well as the Quality Auditing Institute for grading Northern and Lodgepole pine. Chris is also a Haag Certified Inspector of Residential Roofs, examining numerous homes affected by Alberta's hailstorms.
Our team has over 85 years of combined experience in the shake roofing business. We continue to stay up to date with the latest advances and further our industry knowledge every year at the International Roofing Expo.
