Pine Shake Conversions


When pine shake roofing was introduced, homebuilders and homeowners alike were delighted to discover a more affordable way to achieve the beauty of a wood shake roof. Unfortunately, what held out such promise turned into an ongoing financial nightmare. Roofs that were supposed to last 25 or 30 years were showing rapid deterioration after just ten or twelve years, sometimes even sooner.

Due to the rapid deterioration of their pine shake roofs, many homeowners have proceeded to replace their pine shakes with cedar shakes over the past few years. Many others, by far the majority, have chosen to replace their roofs with asphalt shingle roofs.

This can be done at a considerably lower cost than can replacement with cedar shakes, but it is more complicated than a simple replacement of wood shake for wood shake or asphalt shingle for asphalt shingle. It is important that this conversion from pine shake roofing to asphalt shingle roofing be done by a roofing contractor well experienced in pine shake conversions.
