When it comes to quality cedar shake repair or replacement, there are a few key pointers to keep in mind. First, never use a sealant on your cedar shake roof! This will capture the moisture that would otherwise naturally evaporate. It’s better to use a water repellant product. Before you use any topical product, however, it’s best to check with a professional roofing company. This is a job for the pros.

Secondly, cedar shakes need to breathe, so your roof needs to be kept clean, free of branches, leaves, dirt and any other debris. Also, caulk does not stick to unfinished wood, so for cedar shake roofing, it is only a temporary fix at best.
