Cedar Roofing Damage

Has your cedar shake roof been damaged? If there are signs of splits in the wood, curling, moss growth, broken or missing shingles, your roof could probably use some expert help to prevent you from needing a total roof replacement. Don’t fret. Wear and tear, moss, and even damage from wind and storms can happen to any roof no matter what material it is made of. Luckily, cedar wood can be repaired with the help of experts like A.B. Edward Enterprises Inc.

The main kinds of damage a cedar roof is exposed to are environmental in nature. Storms, wind, and hail can loosen and even rip off shingles, or damage them with impact from larger hail stones or tree branches. Humidity and heat follow by drier weather can cause expansion and contraction of wood to the point it curls and starts to split. Moss and wood rot can take hold when humid conditions provide a good environment for fungus to live and grow.

These types of damage require cedar roofing repairs to be made to keep the integrity of your roof in tact and even protect the structures that lay underneath the shingles and the decking form damage. While the temptation for most homeowners is to try and resolve these issues independently, home remedies without the expert opinion of a professional can often do more harm than good. The intent may be to save money on cedar roofing repair costs however, hasty home repairs usually end up costing more.

If you see roof damage or moss occurring on your cedar roof do not try to seal the areas with caulk or sealants, or attempt to pressure wash away fungus – you will damage your roof further and end up incurring more costs than what you would have paid for just the initial damage. In some cases you may even need to replace partial sections of your roof or possibly the cedar roof in its entirety.

Cedar Roofing Repair Process

Edward Enterprises Inc. we will send one of our team members to your home to asses the damage. Leaks, loose shingles, and even rot can be deceptive to the untrained eye.

Most time damage does not mean you will have to replace the entire roof, except in severe circumstances.
