Replacing your Cedar Shake Roof

Want the Cedar Shake look without the Cedar?

Cedar shake makes for a beautiful roof and has been a traditional roofing material for centuries. But it is expensive to maintain and repair, so when it comes time to replace the roof, some opt for a modern alternative. Today, there are several options that maintain that traditional look, but at a lower cost. Lets explore some of those options below.

GAF Ultra-Premium Designer Roofing Shingles

GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, has a large selection of shingles to choose from. Here are a couple that would be great wood shake alternatives.

Grand Sequoia® Shingles and Grand Canyon Lifetime Designer ShinglesGrand Canyon® Shingles are the ultimate choice for a rugged wood-shake look, offering incredible depth and dimension that will astound even the most casual observer. These high performance shingles also come with stain guard protection against ugly blue algae and holds a class A fire rating.

 

Glenwood® Shingles are the most authentic wood shake-look shingle you can buy, featuring an ultra-dimensional design that delivers all the natural beauty of real wood shakes. With the highest fire rating, and enhanced colors to choose from, this is an ideal choice. The Glenwood® features triple-layer design that creates a highly desirable ultra dimensional look with all the natural beauty of real wood shakes. Click here for more info.

Glenwood® Shingles

IKO Premium Designer - Armourshake Dimensional Shingles

IKO Premium Designer - Armourshake Dimensional ShinglesArmourshake Dimensional Shingles are a Top Choice for Any Home! Also boasting a class A fire rating, this shingle offers the same luxurious look of hand-hewn, random-cut cedar wood shakes but at a much more affordable price! Being easier to install than cedar shake, they save you time and money. Algae and mold are problems in the Pacific Northwest, and IKO recognizes that. That is why they engineered this shingle to help fight the growth of algae, mold and mildew, as well as helping to fend off damaging ultraviolet rays, keeping the color of your roof vibrant and beautiful.

Malarkey Roofing Products Windsor XL Shingles

WINDSOR® XL SCOTCHGARD™This shingle was introduced by Malarkey Roofing Products in 2014 as their first designer shingle line. This was a joint effort with contractors to offer the look of a traditional cedar shake roof with the more simple installation that asphalt shingles have to offer. “The new heavyweight shingles offer a more pronounced design on the roof while maintaining the fortified durability of their original shingle lines” Click here for more information on the Windsor XL shingle by Malarkey Roofing Products.

Owens Corning offers the Woodcrest and Woodmoor shingles that take on the natural look of wood shakes, but with less maintenance. Coming in eight colors that are inspired by nature, yet give your roof a pop that real wood can not provide, the only difference between these two shingles, is the thickness. The Woodmoor is thicker and a heavier weight compared to the Woodcrest, giving you even more of a designer look. Click here for more information on all that Owens Corning has to offer.

 

Certainteed

Certainteed-ShakeCertainteed offers several shingles that resemble the look of real wood shake. Let’s explore 3 of those choices. The Presidential Shake shingle is “the original luxury shingle created to replicate the look of cedar shakes with the performance of fiber glass construction”. And now there is Presidential Shake TL (triple laminate). This luxury shingle offers the look of cedar shakes and the performance of one of “the finest composition roofing solutions in the industry”. Triple laminate means that it has 3 layers of material, making it the industries thickest, heaviest shingle.

Landmark TL offered by Certainteed is another shingle with three laminated layers of the industry’s most durable materials. With the classic look of hand-split cedar, the random tab design, and unique natural shadows, this shingle gives a high-end feel to your roof.

Certainteed boasts that the Arcadia is the new standard in premium architectural roofing. Inspired by the iconic look of split wood shake, this shingle is formed from a high-grade blend of roofing asphalt. At a fraction of the cost, the Arcadia outperforms natural wood, is virtually maintenance free, and has a superior fire and wind resistance!

TAM skylights

“Tam Skylights are the best performing skylights on the market”

Who is Tam?

TAM Skylight replacement by Chase Construction

Tam industries was founded in 1970 by Louie Tam in his garage in Seattle, WA. He worked with a acrylic sheets, and eventually fiberglass. As the energy crisis hit the 1970s, he saw a need for energy efficient products and the evolution in the demand for skylights. Marketing to existing clients, and using material that he already had, he started manufacturing acrylic dome skylights. And the rest is history! In the ’80s, with the acquisition of a larger skylight manufacturing company, production capability increased, and Louie was able to establish his company, as one of the leaders in skylight manufacturing in the Pacific Northwest. Louie’s son Irwin now runs this family owned business in Seattle in a 50,000 sq ft facility. Tam Skylights have proven themselves to many local contractors and homeowners of the reliability and quality of their skylights.

Why we use Tam

We Proudly Offer TAM SkykightsOur clients depend on us to only choose the best material for their roofs, so when we choose a company to work with, we do our homework!

We have been partnering with Tam since 1993, and they have never let us down!  We have never had a call back for any leaks associated with the manufacturing of their skylights. Our clients love letting the outdoors in, and are always satisfied with their new skylights!
