Wood Shake Tear-Off To GAF Timberline HD Roofing System
This weeks job feature shows the transformation that comes from converting a wood shake roof to a modern asphalt laminate shingle. Wood shakes just aren't what they used to be. Back in the day wood shakes were made from old growth cedar trees, the grain of the wood was tight and lasted for decades without warping. Although there are some really great wood shakes out there still a lot of the current shakes provided are newer growth trees that are simply not made of the same quality. They curl and fail LONG before their life expectancy. In addition asphalt laminate shingles carry a superior class A fire rating and in some areas qualify for an insurance discount.
In the pictures below you will see the wood shake roof has already been removed, exposing the skip sheathing, the right substrate for wood shakes, which does not however work for asphalt shingles which requires a smooth solid substrate. In the center picture you can see that we began installing the roof deck with 7/16" OSB. On the right you will see a fully installed GAF Timberline HD roofing system with a new B Vent. The B Vent was painted with color matched paint to help put the finishing touch on the roofing systems. Many contractors do not use color match paint and leave all the galvanized accessories a complete mismatch. At Cougar Construction the fine details set our finished work apart from blow and go roofers in Kent, WA.
