Let the GlennStone Experts Handle Your Wood Shake Conversion
Wood shingles look great, but they require more maintenance than other roofing systems. Since they are made from wood, they tend to be more vulnerable to water damage, mold, and insects. The additional and ongoing maintenance requirements associated with natural wood roofs can lead to an increase in long-term costs.
GlennStone has become well-known for wood shake conversions. Don’t trust your shake redeck project with just anyone. There are many factors to consider when converting from an old wood shake roof to a new composition shingled roof.
Shake roofs are installed over spaced decking. However, when traditional asphalt shingles are being installed, shake roofs require a solid deck surface. This is accomplished by installing 7/16 OSB over the existing spaced decking. It is extremely important that the new decking be spaced properly to prevent the decking from buckling as it expands and contracts over the four seasons.
Some high-end shingles require the use of a proprietary starter course. If not properly installed, the roof won’t match around the eaves. These shingles also often require a unique pattern of installation to achieve the proper visual effect. That’s why it’s so important to hire a roofing company that has extensive experience with wood shake conversions like GlennStone. We’ll help ensure your new roof looks great and won’t leak.
Removing wood and simulated wood shakes and shingles from your roof can be a messy process. At GlennStone, we pride ourselves on maintaining a clean job site.
