Cedar Shake Roof Replacement – Great Falls, VA

In today’s customer journey, we get to explore one of the most luxurious roofing materials on the market: Cedar Shake

Alex S reached out to Schaefer Burdett Exteriors after doing extensive research on roofing companies in Northern Virginia that install cedar shake roofs.  Alex started the process after realizing his home suffered from storm-related wind damage.  Alex reached out to USAA and opened a claim.  USAA determined there was indeed wind damage to the existing cedar shakes, and worked with Schaefer Burdett Exteriors to cover the cost of the entire job.

Schaefer Burdett Exteriors knows how to appropriately build and file an itemized claim estimate in the insurance company’s format.  This process is often very tedious and confusing.  Hiring Schaefer Burdett Exteriors to work with the insurance company will often pay dividends, as we know how to properly build an itemized claim estimate according to the type of damage on the home, and the type of material present. The type and format of the insurance estimate is very different and much more complicated than a standard estimate produced for a homeowner’s review.

Alex’s new cedar shake roof will be completely installed today – the whole job took 3 days start to finish on a roughly 3600 square foot roof with two mansard sections.  Cedar shake is certainly more of a financial investment than asphalt shingles, but the look is timeless and classic.  Cedar shakes come in medium and heavy thickness, as well as hand-split and machine-cut varieties. On this particular job, we also installed copper valley flashing and counter flashing, giving the home an extra luxurious appearance. The mansard section of the roof really shows off the new shakes from the curb, and will maintain the curb appeal of this beautiful Great Falls home for years to come.
