A new Cedar roof is a big investment, typically involving thousands of your hard-earned dollars for 50+ years of lasting beauty. As with any big investment, knowing in advance what your warranty covers could save you thousands in the event that problems arise with your roof.
At Shake Guys we provide 2 warranties on new roofs:
Our 5 year warranty (industry standard) on new Cedar Shake Roof Installations protects against roof system failures due to improper installation. It does not cover damage due to natural causes such as animal, bird, termites or insect damage, hail, snow, ice dams, lightning, tornadoes, severe winds with peak gust speeds of 75 mph or higher, or other natural events that are considered acts of God. It also does not cover damage due to settlement, dry rot, improper maintenance or lack thereof by the homeowner, stoppage of roof drains, gutters or other conditions beyond the control of contractor which cause ponding or standing of water. Our warranty will become void if companies other than Shake Guys make modifications to the roofing system. The Shake Guys workmanship warranty allows Shake Guys, at its discretion, to choose to repair or replace the affected area of the roof with like kind and quality of material.
The GOOD NEWS is that the VAST MAJORITY of issues with workmanship show up almost immediately with few taking more than a year to come to light. Our 5 year warranty is truly more than you’ll ever need thanks to our expert workmanship and top quality products.
Manufacturer warranties on cedar shake vary little. The quality of the wood is what typically determines the length of time the shakes are covered. At Shake Guys, we only use Premium Cedar Shakes which come with 40 and even 50 year product warranties depending on our supplier! Because high quality cedar is rare and in demand we must source our Premium 90% to 100% Edge Grain from a half dozen of Canada’s Western Red Cedar mills.
We're invested in protecting what matters most to you.
