Cedar Roof Repair - Langley 006

We have the skills it takes to finish the job right.  No matter what the material is, we can work with it.  On this repair, the customer wanted to add another large room onto there house.  This will be the third addition.  1/2” tapersawn shingles were used on this 5/12 pitch tie in.  At the “dead valley” or “low slope area”, we chose to use a “2 ply torch on system” as well as “sand/base” for fireproofing.  After carefully tearing off the existing cedar shingles, and the nails, we were ready to start installing the new cedar.  One must be very careful not to damage the existing “felt paper” or “tar paper”, as it is a key factor in keeping the roof waterproof.  All and all the repair went very well.  It looks very nice and the cedar shingles will start to blend with each other after a few years.  New attic exhaust vents were added, these vents will ensure the roof lasts a long time.  It is important to have proper soffit ventilation as well.  The soffit is the area under your roof overhangs.  These lower areas are used for fresh air intake.

This chimney will never leak, we guarantee it.   Multiple layers of protection ensure the water flows of exactly the way we want it to.  For this chimney we had to use EPDM rubber combined with metal back pans on the rears sides.  All the water is guided onto the torch-on valley.  This torch-on is “stripped” in for maximum protection.  Both the smooth layer of torch-on underneath and the granulated layer on top are stripped in.  Later the siding will be finished.  We suggest having us come back to clean off the roof once a year.

Cedar Roofing

Cedar Roofing –  Truly the “Roots” of RoofRite

Back in the day, RoofRite started as a cedar roofing company.  The first project we ever took was a cedar to cedar re-roof in Ladner, BC.  That was all the way back in 1993 before RoofRite was even officially registered.  Since then, we have strived to install only the highest quality of cedar available.  Pictured above is a cedar re-roof we completed that covered almost 4000 square feet.  Using old growth taper sawn 7/8” thick cedar shingles, we came out with truly amazing looking finished product.

Old Growth Cedar

When cedar reaches a mature age it releases a chemical into the wood that helps to preserve the wood.  New growth cedar shingles are made out of 7 year old cedar trees.  Old growth should last 30 years when maintained and treated.  New growth cedar wears out in about 12 to 15 years in our experience.

Tar Paper

Between the shingles is a layer of tar paper or felt paper that is woven over the tips of every course (row).
