In the past, Calgary was a dumping ground for low-grade cedar products that were unacceptable for other markets. The low-grade cedar cracks and curls easily, so many of these roofs installed only 15 years ago are already experiencing problems.
There are literally hundreds of cedar roofs in Calgary that have cracking, curling, or splitting shakes, but are in overall fair condition. These roofs can be repaired, and by choosing to repair, you maintain the look and value of your home while prolonging the life of your roof with fewer out-of-pocket expenses!
Chances are your shake roof has a lot more life in it, and Rush Roofing & Contracting is willing to guarantee it. We have a warranty for our repairs, covering the whole roof for 5 years—not just the replaced shakes. 95% of the time, your shake repair will cost thousands of dollars less than reroofing in asphalt and has a higher resale value.
If you would like to explore all your options for dealing with your cedar roof, request a free quote and we will be happy to inspect your roof and let you know if it's a good candidate for our 5-year warranty repair.
Although new pine and cedar shakes stand out from the rest of the roof after installation, they will fade to the same colour in about a year, giving your roof a seamless colour.
