Wood Shake Roof St Louis MO
Wood shake roofing tiles are a popular look in and around the St. Louis MO market. We love wood shake roofs due to the their beauty and the architecturally interesting aesthetic they bring due to the uniqueness of each tile.
Like other roofing materials, there are both benefits and drawbacks to using cedar shake roof tile as your primary building material for your new roof in St Louis.

Wood shake roofing has several benefits worthy of noting.
First, as stated above, wood shake roofing is pretty to look at. We like wood and it's natural beauty, and the uniqueness of each roofing tile just makes for a cool looking roof.
Second, cedar shake roofing works well with proper maintenance. You can expect to get at least 20 years out of a wood shake roof so long as you're okay with keeping up with needed maintenance to seal it against moisture and protect it against UV, wind, and pests. While maintenance can be expensive, it is nice not to have to replace your roof every few years.
Wood shake roofing presents a major fire hazard. In addition to the need for maintenance, one of the greatest drawbacks to wood shake roofing is the fire hazard present. When you have little pieces of wood adorning the roof of your home, you create a very large tinderbox. All it takes is a spark or an errant firecracker to light your entire structure on fire.
