Five Important Tips for Maintaining Your Wood Shingle Roofs

Wood shingle roofs were once treated as one of the special kinds of roofing systems. They have now become a top choice for home owners who don’t seem satisfied with common roofing systems like slate or asphalt shingle roofs.

expert roofing contractors like affordableroofrepair.com often recommend some useful tips that would keep your wood shingle roofing in good condition and make it last a few years more. They are as follows: Tip 1 – Keep your gutter free of waste and remove any hanging tree branches from your roofing to keep the shingles in good condition. Use chlorine with water or any other cleaning solvent to clear molds, lichen and moss.

Tip 2 Whether your wood shingle roofs are made of red cedar or any other variety, don’t leave it uncovered. Apply preservative chemicals with a brush to prevent them from rot or damage. Also keep an additional bundle of wood shingles during roof installation so that they can be used later.

Tip 3 – Pull down and out all the shingles that can’t get repaired. Apply your fingers to move them and keep the adjacent ones unaffected.

Tip 4 – If there are small cracks on shingles, think of repairing them than going for a replacement. Take out loose chips and use galvanized roof nails to pin down the remaining large particles. Make sure the nail heads don’t pierce into the roof surface otherwise it might get damaged. Apply roof cement on both the nail head and crack on shingles.

Tip 5 – For large size cracks you should take a sheet metal for patching. Drive the metal sheet metal under the cracked wooden shingle, until the upper surface of the patch goes beyond the top edge of the leak or crack. Pin down the roofing particles with galvanized nails, being push them hard inside the shingle, otherwise the surface might get damaged. Cover the patched crack and nails with roof cement materials.
