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 can lead to an increase in the long term costs associated with maintaining a roof made with natural wood materials.
GlennStone Roofing and Gutters has become well-known for wood shake conversions. Don’t trust your shake re-deck project to just anyone. There are many things 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 installing traditional asphalt shingles, they 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 during the expansion and contraction 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, so your new roof looks great and won’t leak.
Wood shakes and shingles can be very messy when removing them from your roof. At GlennStone, we pride ourselves on maintaining a clean job site.
