What does Dry Rot Look like on a Ceder Shake Roof?
Cedar shake roofs are not as popular as they once were, but there are many homes that still have these types of roofs. Many times insurance companies will pay to replace cedar shake roofs which are damaged by the weather if its extreme enough.
Hundreds of years ago, cedar shake was the most popular roof on the market. That was of course before the invention of asphalt shingles. If a homeowner can budget it, sometimes its better to replace the old cedar shake roof with Asphalt shingles rather than try to repair a leaking wooden roof.
