Hand-nailed cedar shake roofs are most significant for their eye-popping natural good looks. Although, beyond their charm, cedar provides an entire host of practical benefits– eco-friendliness, sturdiness, and weather resistant. Cedar shake roofs do need a significant amount of care though in order to extend their life and durability. Ask about our full line of cedar shake roofing options.

About Cedar Roofs

The term “cedar” can actually refer to wood from a dozen or more types of trees, grown all over the World. Although red cedar traditionally been the tree most typically used to develop roof shake shingles, recently, white cedar has grown in popularity for roofing materials due to its lower cost and that it is cut from new-growth trees.

Depending on individual taste, cedar trees might be cut in the type of either shingles, cut on both sides, or “cedar shakes”, which are hand split and re-sawn to lead to a more rough-hewn, rugged texture.

Why Cedar Shakes Are Considered Eco-Friendly

Sustainable cedar shake roofs are environmentally friendly. View the certification of sustainability by the Forest Stewardship Council, it’s quite a document and they are serious about saving cedar trees, especially the wood used to make cedar shake shingles for homes.

Cedar roofs are durable. Generally warrantied for 20-25 years, they will usually last as long as 50-60 years or more if effectively set up, preserved, and brought back.

The life expectancy of a cedar roofing system can easily be extended by changing individual shingles and shakes that have distorted, used, or cracked. This saves the financial and ecological expense of installing a brand-new roofing.

At the end of the cedar roof life, discarded cedar shakes or shingles are recyclable as mulch.

Cedar roofs are naturally weather resistant, withstanding variations in temperature and freeze-thaw cycles with ease. Not that it matters in Northern Illinois, cedar shake roofs are likewise earthquake durable.

A cedar roofing shingle provides thermal resistance (a natural insulating result) many times higher than that of other roofing products such as aluminum. This conserves energy by reducing the necessity for heating and cooling.

Cedar consists of natural oils which withstand mildew or degeneration and ward off bugs. (Keep in mind Granny’s mothproof cedar chest?).

Cedar roofs are naturally beautiful, in a wide variety of discreetly varied colors and textures. They will acquire an unique silvery gray patina as they weather, allowing them to mix into their natural environments and look lovely on standard or contemporary design homes, country cottages, or beach houses.

    Reasons to Have Your Roof Inspected
    Your roof is constantly exposed to dramatic changes in temperature, rain, wind, and sunlight. This exposure, as well as normal wear, degrades roofing materials. Wood becomes brittle and weak, metal rusts, and shingles become loose, which can allow water to infiltrate your home. This can result in mold growth, structural damage, and a host of other problems.
    Find problems early – This proactive approach can lead to fewer repairs that are less expensive to fix as well.
    Prevent leaks – Wouldn’t it be great to catch a leak before it enters your home. Our roof inspection specialists know what to look for in any potential problem.
    Avoid water damage and mold growth – When we catch issues before they get a chance to fester, you need less mold remediation and water damage restoration.
    Predict when it is time for roof replacement– Knowing when to repair vs. replace your roof is paramount in saving as much as possible with your roofing services.
    Lower your utility bill – If you want to ensure that your roof isn’t contributing to you losing your indoor air environment, then contact our Chicago Area roof inspection specialists today.
    Maximize the life of your roof – If you want to maximize your return on investment for your roof, contact our Chicago suburbs roof inspection experts right away.

If a problem is discovered, you can have it fixed when the repair is easier and less expensive.

    Small problems can gradually progress until they undermine the structural integrity of your roof. Since our inspection is offered at no cost and with no obligation, there is no reason to let that happen to you.

    I absolutely recommend JnJ! They replaced my roof, and they were very professional, accommodating  and fast. There were no hidden fees and it was an extremely easy process to install our roof in the Chicago Suburbs.  Mike was so great to work with on our roofing project, and he would answer calls/texts, when I had some questions, even in the evening hours.

    We needed our roof done fast because of the storm damage to our roof in Glenview on the Northshore of Chicago. JnJ Restoration roofing and siding is the best value because they came right out, assessed the hail damage to our roof and siding, and then completed the roofing work in 3 days. Great quality roofing slate shingles from DaVinci ! We get so many compliments from our neighbors in Glenview, roofing will never be easier for you! We recommend JnJ Restoration for roofing and siding to anyone in Chicago’s Suburbs!” -Tom W.

    Best in the business. Jason and staff were not only professional, but very knowledgeable. We had a pretty bad hail storm which caused some leaks in a building I manage. They came out, gave me a very fair price and got the work done very clean and very fast. They were also very kind and patient to educate me on everything I needed to know about my situation.

    Jay T. – DaVinci Roof Installation DuPage County, IL

    JnJ Restoration roofing and siding company in Glen Ellyn made the DaVinci roof installation process on our house easy and seamlessly smooth! Jason, the owner of JnJ Restoration came out and did our roof replacement quote in Glen Ellyn, IL, was polite and courteous and always on time throughout the process. His roofing installation company crew was respectful of our neighbors, finished when the contractor crew chief said they would and cleaned up after the roof job site everyday. We also get many compliments on our DaVinci Roofing Shingles, Chicago’s best roof option, in my opinion.
    If you are looking for a new roof installation in Chicagoland, JnJ Restoration comes highly recommended! Next year we plan on doing a new vinyl siding installation to match our new roofing by JnJ Restoration. Overall, I would say JnJ Restoration is the best roofing company in Chicagoland, or at least Chicago’s West Suburbs!
