Cedar Roof Replacement in Flatbush NY
Dealing with a cedar roof can be a nightmare, and it’s a reality that many homeowners in Brooklyn and Queens have to deal with. Most houses built pre 1940 were built with a cedar roof, and many still haven’t been replaced to this day. It was common practice to add layers and layers on top, but now the only right thing to do is to replace it.
This gallery is a great illustration of what it looks like after we remove all the rotted cedar shake, and you’ll see why we have to install all new plywood over the existing lat strips. This is why it’s much more expensive to replace a roof with a cedar layer, for the added labor and material.
