Wood Shake Roofing Maintenance and Tips

Shake roofing is rustic, classic and beautiful. If you are an eco-friendly homeowner, wood shakes are also good for the environment! However, these roofs are also more prone to wear and tear. Below are some maintenance tips to keep your roof in good working order for a long time.

1. Clean It Regularly

Cleaning your roof is essential to good roof maintenance. Rid your roof of leaf accumulation. Make sure no debris is left lying around. You do not have to do it every day, but a routine cleaning and roof repair will keep your roof looking nice and neat. It can also avoid the expense and hassle when the debris you left piled on your roof causes you to call a roofer to replace the roofing system.

2. Regular Roof Maintenance

On the topic of regular cleaning, regular maintenance is also important. It doesn’t have to be all the time, but it should be consistent. Check it every few months or so. The great thing about regular maintenance is that it is preventive and can eventually save you money in the long run.

3. Treating Your Wood Shakes

This is a simple step that you can have your roofing company perform. Your roof is a part of your house that is subject to storm damage. Adding a preservative to them will help wood shakes to last a long time.
