   [60] METAL SHINGLES, LANGLEY B.C.


MY PRESSURE TREATED CEDAR SHINGLES ARE 20 YEARS OLD. THERE IS NO SIGN OF ROT, HOWEVER THEY ARE CUPPED AND CURLED AND CRACKED ALL OVER FROM EXTREME HEAT IN THE SUMMERTIME. I HAVE SPENT ALOT OF TIME PATCHING AND SHIMMING THE ROOF TO FORSTALL THE INEVITABLE REPLACEMENT. LEAKS HAVE FORCED ME TO TAKE ACTION.




I PERSONALLY WOULD NEVER WANT ANOTHER CEDAR ROOF. I LIKE THE LOOKS OF THEM, WHEN THEY'RE BRAND NEW, BUT TAKE A LOOK AT THEM 5 YEARS LATER. THEY ARE VERY EXPENSIVE TO INSTALL, AND A PAIN TO MAINTAIN.

 


THE THING THAT I HATED ABOUT CEDAR SHINGLES, WAS KEEPING WASPS, MICE AND SQUIRRELS FROM GETTING INTO OUR HOUSE THROUGH THE ROOF. A ROOF SHEETED IN WITH PLYWOOD WILL SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.

 


I AM REPLACING THE EPDM GUTTER LINER NOT BECAUSE IT WAS WORN OUT, BUT BECAUSE THE LAST INDO-INSTALLER NEVER TOOK CARE OF DETAILS. I HAD TO REPAIR EVERY CORNER AND EVERY DRAIN OVER THE YEARS.

 


I WAS HOPING THIS JOB COULD WAIT UNTIL SPRING, BUT WE CAN REROOF PRETTY WELL ALL YEAR ROUND. WE JUST MANAGE TO DO IT, A SECTION AT A TIME.

 


WE CHOSE THE METAL SHINGLE IN ENHANCED T-TONE, WHICH IS VERIGATED IN COLOUR. EDCO IS THE ONLY MANUFACTURER THAT I KNOW OF THAT MAKES A MULTICOLOURED METAL SHINGLE.

 


WE COULDN'T HAVE PICKED A BETTER COLOUR TO SUIT OUR HOUSE. I WASN'T TOO SURE OF THE COLOUR INITIALLY, BUT NOW THAT A GOOD CHUNK OF THE ROOF IS DONE, IT'S GROWN ON ME.

 




 


I LIKE THE APPEARANCE, AS IT STANDS OUT AT A DISTANCE. IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE YOUR TYPICAL METAL ROOF. PEOPLE ASK ME WHAT TYPE OF ROOF IT IS, BECAUSE THEY HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT.
