Cedar Shake Roofing Replacement

The average life expectancy of a cedar shake roof is 30 to 40 years. This is slightly longer than asphalt shingles. However, the results vary depending on several factors such as climate and overhanging trees.

When your cedar shake roof reaches the end of its life, why go with any other material? We offer complete cedar shake roof replacement for homeowners in the Twin Cities metro area. We can completely remove the old roof and replace it with a brand new roof that will give you up to 40 years of protection. New cedar shake roofing is far superior to the old roofing you now have. You will love how it looks and how well it performs on your roof.

Signs Your Cedar Shake Roofing Needs Repair

While cedar shake roofing is quite durable and long-lasting, regular maintenance is required to ensure this material’s longevity. If your cedar shake roof has been neglected over the years, or if the installation was not up to par, your roof may be in need of repair or replacement. Here are a few things to look for:

Moss Growth

When cleaning is not performed regularly, cedar shake roofing may grow moss. This is because cedar wood requires airflow to remain dry. When debris is not removed from the roof, moisture and damp air are trapped, which creates an ideal environment for moss to grow. Residences that are heavily shaded are especially susceptible.

Sometimes the moss can be cleaned off by a professional, but if it has been allowed to grow for awhile, it’s likely the roof has some moisture damage that requires repair or replacement.


Because cedar shake roofs are made of natural wood, they sometimes warp a bit with age. Being subjected to UV radiation, rain, heat, and other elements can cause cupping or curling of the shingles. This becomes a problem when it’s excessive and exposes the underlayment between the shakes. If you see this happening, contact Paskar Construction for speedy repair. It’s best to take care of small issues with your roof before they turn into major leaks.

It’s also important to note that new cedar shingles may also cup or curl slightly, but extreme cupping or curling indicates poor installation. If you have any questions about the condition of your cedar shake roof, we are happy to send one of our experts out to conduct a thorough inspection. Call 612-290-0332 to set up an appointment.

Missing or Damaged Shingles

If your cedar shake roof has missing or damaged shingles, this is an obvious sign that you need to call a professional for repair or replacement. While cedar shake roofs are incredibly durable, they can’t properly protect your home from the elements with missing shakes and excessive damage. If you’ve experienced leaks inside your home, call us ASAP to make sure none of your shakes are missing.
