While manufacturers have developed asphalt shingles that mimic the look of cedar shake roofs, nothing matches the natural beauty and energy efficiency of cedar shake roofing. Drawbacks? They cost more upfront, are more labor-intensive to install, and require regular maintenance to prevent moss and mold growth.

How Long Does a Cedar Shake Roof Last?

A properly installed cedar shake roof can easily last 30 years or more in Green Bay’s climate. The most important factor in the longevity of a cedar shake roof is maintenance.

Can Cedar Shake Roofing Be Installed Over An Existing Roof?

It depends. If you have only one layer of asphalt shingles on your roof and they’re not excessively cupped or deteriorating, it’s possible to install split or rough-sawn cedar shake shingles over your asphalt shingles. This requires installing a ventilating underlayment or a layer of battens, however, which adds to both the labor and materials cost.

What about installing cedar shake shingles over an existing wood shingle roof? We usually recommend against this because of the irregular surface and the impracticality of nailing through two layers of shakes. It’s almost always better to reroof (i.e. remove all the existing shingles and install new ones over the underlayment. In some cases, though, it may be possible to install new cedar shake shingles over an existing cedar shake roof, provided the existing shingles aren’t curled or deteriorated too much.
