Cedar Shake Ventilation Done Right 

EDR Roofing offers the top-of-the-line cedar shank and shingles coupled with the correct ventilation. One of the differences that separates us from other Houston roofing companies is we create the proper ventilation. Cedar needs to be able to breath in order to have the longest lifespan possible.  Without proper ventilation your cedar shake shingles can dry out causing them to weaken. Furthermore, if the cedar shank is untreated without a waterproof sealant, they will age and thus deteriorate more rapidly. In Houston cedar shake roofs are more susceptible to extreme heat buildup since Harris County stays above 70 degrees most the year and your roof must be able to release this heat.  In majority of cedar roof replacement, they were not properly ventilated.

Here are a few ways EDR ventilates our cedar shake roofs:

       Felt Underlayment’s


        Reflecting barrier Sheathing


        Correct Ridge Vents


        Additional Vents with the option to add fans.


        Adequate Insulation in the attic


In addition to making sure your cedar shank roof is has great ventilation before we install the roof, we will allow the cedar to acclimate to Houston weather, then we use alloy nails installing each cedar shingle by hand instead of using a nail gun. We also make sure to use the best fasteners and allow enough space for proper draining so that your cedar shake and shingles have the longest lifespan possible. Installing cedar roof shingles is a serious task that should be done the right way to preserve your investment as the smallest mistake can shave years off the life of your roof.
