Cedar Shake Roof

In Crawford, Texas (near Waco) this homeowner faced a daunting challenge. His cedar shake roof had fallen into disrepair. The situation had become so dire that he had stationed about 20 buckets in the attic to catch rainwater and protect the home’s interior. This was more than an inconvenience; it was a liability, threatening damage to the roof structure and making his home uninsurable.

Cedar Shake Roof in Disrepair

Cedar shakes, while aesthetically pleasing, require a lot of maintenance to retain their integrity and functionality. Unfortunately, the homeowner’s roof was well past its “expiration date”, leading to extensive water damage. The roof’s poor condition not only compromised the home’s safety but also made it impossible to secure insurance coverage. The homeowner was left vulnerable, facing the unpredictability of Texas weather with a roof unfit to protect his home.

After inspecting the roof, it was clear that a complete roofing overhaul was necessary. The homeowner selected our Galvalume Class 4 Panel-Loc Plus metal roof, known for its durability, energy efficiency, and resistance to extreme weather conditions.

The Class 4 rating indicates the highest level of impact resistance, providing the homeowner with peace of mind against hail and other potential hazards.

Removing Cedar Shake Shingles

The installation process began with removing the damaged cedar shakes. Our experienced team then installed roofing felt before installing the Galvalume panels. Attention to detail was critical, as we had to make sure every pitch and valley was completely watertight.

The Galvalume roof transformed the home’s exterior, providing a sleek, modern look that instantly improved its curb appeal. More importantly, the new roof restored the home’s integrity and insurability, ending the need for rainwater buckets in the attic!
