Our Goal

The job is never finished if the customer is not 100% satisfied with the end result. Installation of a cedar shake roof is a process that is the culmination of many years of perfecting the technique. Every project that Shake Guys take on is another demonstration of our dedication to the craft that has consumed our lives. All aspects are perpetually analyzed with the goal of perfection as the end result.

Attention To Detail

The life span of a roof is greatly affected by the technique that is implemented during the installation and that is why we insist on using the finest cedar shake wood. For cedar shakes & shingles the depth of drive is crucial. The single most important feature for a good pneumatic roof nailer is the ability to accurately dial in the depth that the nails are driven. Our pneumatic roof nailer lets us adjust the depth of drive with absolute accuracy & precision. Over-driving or under-driving any fastener will affect the integrity of the roofing system.
