Common Roof Problems:
#2 - Cedar Shakes/Shingles - Splitting and Breaking
Cedar shakes and shingles will tend to dry out and then cup or split. Once a cedar shake splits (typically in line with a nail hole), portions of the split shake or shingle may no longer be held in place adequately, and can be easily blown away.
It is not uncommon for sections of a roof to show signs of aging faster than other roof sections of the same house, depending on which part is exposed to the sun and wind the most.

Saving residents money repairing roofs is our specialty, but all roofs will reach a point when replacement makes the most economic sense.
