Beautifully rustic roof with a lot of advantages
Thinking about cedar shake roofing for your home? If so, you’re looking at a beautifully rustic roof with a lot of advantages. Depending on your area’s climate, the quality of the product and installation, and the care you provide to maintain it, cedar shake roofing can last anywhere from 30 to 50 years! Highly resistant to hail damage, cedar shake roofing makes an excellent choice for homeowners living in areas prone to such weather anomalies.
Preservative Treatment (otherwise known as CCA Treated or pressure treated) protects wood against fungal decay often associated with high heat and humidity conditions. This treatment has proven to prolong the life of cedar roofing or siding.
The CERTI-LAST label identifies cedar shakes and shingles that have been pressure impregnated with wood preservatives to the standards of the Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau.
Certi-Last is manufactured using Certi-Split cedar shakes, Certigrade cedar shingles, or Certi-Sawn cedar shakes.
Shakes and shingles are applied according to standard specifications of the Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau. The treating company or chemical manufacturer may have special requirements regarding flashing, fasteners, etc.
30/50 Year Warranty
Certi-Last shakes and shingles are warranted from failure due to fungal decay. The warranties are issued and backed by the treating company and/or chemical manufacturer. The product is sold under the Certi-Last trademark when treated to the minimum established standards.
Certi-Last is recommended for use on roofs in the shaded area of the map below, having a climate index of more than 65 as identified in the USDA Forest Service Research Paper FPL 109-1973.
