Shakes to Shingles

Taking full advantage of the warm week with a few roof replacements. We removed all the cedar shakes from this roof in Germantown and installed Landmark Pro weathered wood shingles and it really gave the home a facelift. One of the more important details to pay attention to when removing a shake roof and installing new shingles is the wall flashing. Cedar Shakes are thicker than asphalt shingles so the spacing between siding and the roof deck is going to change when new shingles are installed, we have to make sure to use tall enough step flashing and/or install counter flashing to make up the difference. Another important reason to make sure you hire an experienced roofing contractor.
