A cedar and pine roof, when well maintained should last a homeowner at least 30 years. Having a wood shingled roof provides homeowners with many advantages including, durability, a high insulation rating, wind resistance and a high impact rating. However, in order to extend the life a wood shingled roof, it is important to properly maintain the wood. Braswell Construction Group offers wood shingle restoration, which is the process of cleaning and repairing broken shakes and severely curled shakes and then applying a specially formulated oil that is designed specifically for wood shake roofs. The formulated oil penetrates deep into the wood shingle to provide weather protection that ultimately helps prolong cupping, curling and decay. The oil is recommended to be reapplied every 5 years and is guaranteed to prolong the life of the wood shingles.
