Cedar shingles make a really beautiful and distinctive roof. One of the reasons that shingles, or shakes as they are also known, are so attractive is that they are made from natural materials rather than asphalt roofing tile or Spartan metal. Naturally resilient, they do, however, weather over time, leading to their eventual decomposition. The single most important factor in the repair of your cedar roof is to repair it immediately to prevent any further damage to the interior of your home.
Hopefully, you have been maintaining a regular schedule of roof inspections, at least twice a year, with a certified roofing company who has experience and expertise with cedar shake roofs. Prevention is the first step of repair. A severely neglected roof leads to irreparable damage that can result in the replacement of your entire roof rather than just a shingle here and there. Most companies will check out your roof and your attic for free and then give you a recommendation and quote for what they found.
If you have waited until there are signs of a roof leak showing up on your ceiling or walls, like a damp stain or even mildew forming, then immediately call a roof repair company. You can go up and check for a broken or missing tile, but how do you know where to look and determine whether that is indeed the source of your leak. Stains on your ceiling usually result from the water entering in through a breach in your roof and then travels sometimes the whole roof before it finds entry into the house. It is best to rely on the professionals who know how to repair cedar shingles.
