Your choice of roof covering may be the most important component of protecting your home against extreme weather conditions. Interior water penetration from a neglected roofing system can result in thousands of dollars of subsequent damage. A properly cared-for shake roof is durable, functional, and can protect your home for 50 years. Maintenance is not only a cost-effective option, but also an excellent way to keep unnecessarily wasted roofing material out of our landfills.
