Get All The Facts About Your Wood Roof in Calgary

Why wait for your roof to leak before installing a new roof? Give your shake roof proper maintenance every 5 years with Shake Experts Inc, and pay a fraction of the cost of a new roof!

What are the average maintenance costs?

This all depends on the pitch, manufacturer, length of time between services, and the installation quality. A ballpark figure would be between $350 and $1,000 per year.

Do you require our services?

Our simple DIY checklist can give you some clues:

  1. Curled shakes appear to be "lifting". Look from the street or out a bedroom window – do they lay flat? The shakes that are curled also expose the inter-ply roofing felt, and after time can jeopardize the roofing system.
  2. Decaying shakes appear "black" or a darker shade of grey than the other shakes on the roof, and may crumble when handled. Occasionally they form as a teardrop or vertical lines on the roof.
  3. Ridge cap staples working themselves loose. Look at the ridge cap from the ground or out a bedroom window and concentrate on the staples that hold the ridge cap together. Eventually, some of the ridge cap will crack and fall out not protecting the roofing system from the elements.

5-Year Maintenance

Pine has received very bad press in the past. Don't be intimidated into re-roofing! The fact is, all exterior wood products require some form of maintenance, and your roof is no exception. Pine is a fabulous product and will easily last for 25 years, provided it gets a little TLC every 5 years. A cedar shake roof can last up to 50 years with proper maintenance. Shake Experts Inc will provide a general check-up and remedy any problems that might affect the longevity of your roofing system.

An ounce of prevention = a pound of cure. Where a re-roof can run from $7,000-$18,000, an average five-year service call will only cost between $500 and $2,000. Shake Experts Inc will help ensure that your roofing system lasts for 25 years and possibly beyond. You can rest assured you have experts on the job!
