What is Cedar Shake Roofing?

Cedar shake roofs are wooden shingles manufactured from split logs. From afar, the Cedar shakes all look the same, but a closer look reveals that each one has a slight difference in thickness and length.

Benefits of Choosing Cedar Shake Roofing

This type of roofing comes with a unique set of perks including:


Cedar shake roofing is one of the longest-lasting natural roofing options with a lifespan of around 30 years.


Unlike metal or asphalt, cedar shake roofing is well able to maintain its original state in light of different temperatures and weather conditions. This, all thanks to the fact that it is made from low-density material which lies flat and stays put even in the harshest of conditions. It also has little to no shrinkage under humid conditions.

Resistant to External Forces

Cedar shake roofing contains natural preservatives that protect your roof against insect damage/infestation. Cedar shake roofs are also known to stand firm against UV rays even after prolonged sunlight exposure. This roof is also water-resistant and adapts incredibly well through all four seasons in a year.

Factory-made cedar shakes are further treated to make them fire, wind, and fungus resistant.

Additional Insulation

However, low temperatures get, especially during winter, with cedar shake roofing, your home will remain warm. Cedar works as a natural insulator keeping your home cool in warmer months and alternatively keeping your home warm during colder months.

Want to save yourself a couple of bucks in air conditioning energy costs? Cedar shake roofing is the way to go.

Aesthetically Pleasing

A home in the woods or the countryside with more modern roofing sticks out like a sore thumb. The best way to blend in with the nature around you is to install a cedar shake roof. Cedar shake roofing comes second to none when it comes to its natural look and finishes.

To make it more attractive, manufacturers develop various finishing options like stained Cedar and shake fine oil finishes. If you are going for a particular shade, there are cedar shake tiles with a combination of solid coatings and colored paints.

There’s no telling how much cedar roofing has in store for you if you are a free-spirited personality in love with nature. This type of roof isn’t just something you place on top of your home to keep the rain or sun from getting to you. Rather, it is a form of expression and aesthetic fashion statement.

We had a fabulous experience with Roof Works. The entire experience- from scoping the project with Sean, to the hard-working, polite, crew, who got it all done in one day (replacing the entire roof and underlying boards) including thorough prepping and clean-up! Highly recommend.

Roof Works did it all. We just had to write the check. When they left there was no sign they were ever there except the new beautiful roof.

I have to say when I called Sean I was pretty overwhelmed with being a first time home buyer and a month later installing a new roof. Sean let me vent over the phone and in person. He made this process for me easy and explained every step. The customer service was exceptional. Sean and his team are amazing individuals and I thank him for being there every step of the way. I would highly recommend this company to my friends and family.

Roof Works did a wonderful job replacing our hail-damaged roof. All of the materials were delivered to our home in Jackson about a week before, let me know what to expect and responded immediately to all questions, installed everything professionally, and cleaned up thoroughly after themselves. Roof Works made an extra trip to re-inspect to make sure there were no nails laying around for my pets to step on or for us to accidentally ride over. Should we ever need to have our roof replaced I will definitely hire them again.

We had damage from a storm and wanted someone to look at our roof. Our neighbor used Roof Works and highly recommended them. I reached out to Sean and he inspected our roof and knew exactly what needed to be submitted to the insurance company for review. Sean’s crew took the roof off and replaced it in one day! Having dogs I was concerned about nails, Sean made sure his crew walked the property periodically throughout the day to ensure their safety. We have referred Roof Works to a few friends already. Not only did my husband and I get a new roof but we feel like we made a friend. Thanks Sean for such a smooth process!

Sean was excellent. We had difficulty with the insurance company and coverage; he was very patient and professional. Showed up on-time and performed repairs on schedule. The roof looks great, they got most of the work done in just one day. I would highly recommend this company.

Loved working with Sean. He helped me through the entire process, and was more than patient with me every step of the way. He made sure we were fully taken care of as it was an insurance claim and we had no idea what all would be involved. We got our roof replaced, as well as some of our screens as well from storm damage. Sean helped us pick out colors for our new shingles, and picked out gutters that would match the siding and paint of our home. Everything went extremely well, and I would gladly recommend Roof Works.

Common questions

These are some of the most frequent questions we receive from NJ Homeowners:

If you have storm damage to your home, in many cases, YES, insurance will cover the cost to have your roof restored to pre-storm damage condition! This is considered an “Act of God”, and most homeowners insurance policies will cover this type of damage from wind or hail storms.

In many cases, in as little as one day! This depends on several factors, such as the size of your roof, the pitch, the steepness, and the material being installed. However, most asphalt shingle roofs can be installed in as little as one day!

Yes, absolutely! We are proud to work with financing partners that allow us to offer low monthly payment plans and financial options to those customers who need it! Please ask for more information during your free estimate!

We offer different warranties depending on the material and product that you select. However, we do offer lifetime warranties as well!

Clean-up is what separates our company from many of the others! We understand the importance of returning your home to pre-roof replacement landscape, and work diligently to protect your garden, yard and driveway free of debris and nails. We cleanup throughout the replacement process, not just at the end!
