Hiring a roofing contractor to replace the roof on your home can be a stressful and daunting task. Your roof is one of the most significant investments to the exterior of your home, protecting your family and belongings from the elements. In the state of Maryland, one of the biggest things to consider before hiring any roofer is whether they are licensed. You’ll want to check to make sure they have general liability and workers comp insurance as this protects you if there is ever an injury on your property. You’ll want to ask them about their experience with your type of roof pitch and material to be installed. With the power of the internet, you should not only ask them for references but Google their brand to see what type of reputation and reviews they have online. Ask them how long it takes to complete the install, and how backed up their schedule is. Lastly, price should also be a major consideration. However, like with anything, you get what you pay for. A quality contractor should come in somewhere in the middle, as this reflects that they aren’t cutting corners being the cheapest, while also not price gouging with the highest price. A contractor that offers pricing that seems too good to be true … it very likely is.

Baltimore’s Premier Cedar Shake Roofers
Choosing the perfect roof for your home can be stressful especially since there are many options to choose from. When choosing a roofing system, it is important to consider the pros and cons of the material as well as your budget. It is also crucial that you choose a professional residential roofing company to help you install the roof properly. One of the popular roofing systems in Baltimore is cedar shake, also commonly referred to as cedar shingles.
Benefits of Using Cedar Shake as a Roofing System
One of the main reasons why homeowners prefer using cedar shingles as a roofing material is that it has natural appeal. Its beauty is aesthetically pleasing to the eye and the good news is that you do not have to paint your roof after installation. As the shingles age, they turn into a silver-grey tone that is beautiful to look at.
Another benefit of using cedar shake as a roofing system is that it is cheaper than most sloping roofing system. Cedar wood is also easily accessible in Baltimore, making it an ideal roofing material for residents of Baltimore. Apart from being cheap, cedar shingles are also durable, saving you a lot of money in the long run. Cedar is known to last more than 10 years when installed. It is quite resistant to weather elements such as strong winds, storms, heavy rain, hurricanes as well as snow storms.
If you are looking for an energy-efficient roofing material, you may also want to consider cedar shake. The roofing material provides natural insulation more efficiently that some of its counterparts. For example, in comparison with asphalt shingles, cedar shake can provide twice as much insulation. This means that you will not have to use a lot of money on energy to cool and heat your home.
Cedar Shake Roofing Maintenance
One of the downsides of using cedar shingles as a roofing option is that it requires regular maintenance as opposed to most of its roofing counterparts. However, all roofs need regular maintenance. All you have to remember when installing a cedar shale roofing system is that you have to bring in a roofing inspector every once in a while. This way, you will be able to detect and address any leaks especially after bad weather.

Below we’ve put together some answers to the most frequently asked questions
The answer to this is, “it depends”. There are many variables, and everyone’s situation is different. Not every roof needs to be replaced, but not every roof is a candidate for roof repairs. One of the most important factors is the age of your roof. The older your roof is, the more brittle it becomes, which means that repairing your roof may not be possible. Beyond just your roof’s age, you should also consider if your roof has missing shingles, if there are granules in your gutters, the condition of your flashing, if your roof is currently leaking and whether or not algae is blooming on your roof.
The only way to confidently answer this question is with a thorough storm damage roof inspection. Most modern roofs are designed to withstand the elements. However, even the strongest of roofs can begin to fail when exposed to prolonged hail, wind and snow storms. In many instances, your homeowner’s insurance can cover storm damage to your roof and exterior. To determine whether you have storm damage, a roofing contractor should examine your roof for broken and missing shingles, potential leak spots, and any hail indents or bruised shingles.
This is an extremely frequently asked question. There are many factors to consider when choosing between a shingle or metal roof. The most obvious is budget and cost. A shingle roof is one of the most popular roofing materials in the United States because of its cost. A shingle roof tends to be the short-term cost effective option, however a metal roof can be a more cost-effective long-term option. You may need to have a shingle roof replaced 2 or 3 times during the lifespan of a metal roof. Metal offers not only better durability, but longevity as well compared to asphalt shingles. There are also other considerations, such as does your HOA allow for metal, or strictly shingles.
This answer also depends on several variables, including the slope and size of your roof, as well as the type of material being installed. In most cases, an asphalt shingle roof can be replaced in as little as one day!
The lifecycle of a roof depends on the type of roof that you are installing, as well as additional factors like the quality of materials being used, and the craftsmanship of the contractor. Even the highest grade roofs can fail quickly if the contractor does not install the roof to manufacturer specifications. On average, a shingle roof will last about 15 to 25 years. A metal roof can last about 30 to 50 years. A tile roof can last from 50 to over 100 years. A cedar shake will generally last about 20-35 years. A slate roof tends to last the longest of any roofing material, from 50-100+ years!
