Shake roof installation begins a outfitted properly installed roof deck ready for sheathing. Our experienced roofers will then typically apply cedar or synthetic shakes to ¾” thick plywood for ideal nail performance, followed by coating the entire roof deck with 30-pound roofing felt as recommended by the USDA. A layer of felt will be folded over the top of the ridge, where the two planes of your roof meet, and another layer will be interlaid with your cedar or synthetic shakes.
Our roofing professional will then proceed with the shake roof installation, ensuring 1/2″ edging along the lower edge of your roof. We will correctly space the shakes between 3/8″ to 5/8″, depending on the moisture conditions on the day of installation. This will help ensure proper fit , design, and longevity for your shake roof. We will make sure your roof is ready to withstand St. Louis rain, wind and ice.
