The life span of a cedar shake roof is 30 - 40 years. With proper shake roof maintenance, some cedar roofs can last for well over 50 years in Calgary.
Even if you haven't had any problems, it only takes a few “bad” shakes to compromise your entire roofing system. More often than not, 90-95% of the shakes on your roof are still in great condition, and only 5-10% of the shakes require maintenance. By simply replacing these “problem shakes”, you can prevent most future problems and DRAMATICALLY increase the lifespan of your roof…..for a fraction of the cost of replacing it!

These written inspections will tell you what condition your shake roof is in, what it will cost for ARCO to repair the damaged shakes, and give you a better understanding of why it makes more logical and financial sense to have us maintain and repair your cedar shake roof versus having it replaced prematurely.
