At Anchor Roofing, our goal is always to provide long-lasting, reliable roofing solutions for our customers. Wood shake roofing was long seen as a top choice for residential roofs, lending similar protection as traditional shingles while providing a beautiful, rustic aesthetic. However, as we and other Omaha, NE roofing companies can attest, wood shake is no longer a viable roofing solution for homeowners.
While it’s still possible to repair existing wood shake roofs, replacement is typically the most cost-effective option. With wood shake roofs being heavily disfavored across the country, manufacturers throughout the U.S. simply aren’t making true wood shake products anymore. This means materials are much rarer, and even a simple wood shake repair can cost several times what a comparable repair for synthetic shakes or asphalt shingles would.
As one of the few roofing companies specializing in wood shake replacement here in Omaha, NE, our goal is to provide the best possible solutions for our customers. We understand that many homeowners chose wood shake for their roof because of the unique look this roofing material provides.
Luckily, there’s good news: synthetic shakes have come a long way over the years, resulting in products that truly emulate the look of wood shakes without the risks. What’s more, these synthetic alternatives typically retain their color and appearance better than true wood shake, meaning you’ll be able to enjoy your home’s look for much longer.
