Located in one of the most prestigious areas of Alabama, this Mountain Brook home sustained some severe storm damage to its cedar shake roof. The homeowners worked with our preferred Birmingham roofing company Authentic Restoration and their insurance company to get the approval for a complete roof replacement. The claim was approved except for the flat roof dormer in the rear of the home which had newer asphalt shingles.
The cedar shake shingles on this home were in rough shape. Cedar shake roofing has been a popular roofing choice for centuries. With that said, there have been little to no improvement to cedar shake, other than its manufacturing process. Homes that are covered by cedar shake depend on layers of felt to help shed water. That’s why Authentic Restoration presented Brava Shake as a roof replacement option. Brava Shake composite shingles capture the stunning aesthetics of real cedar shake, but offers a lighter weight roofing solution that is far more durable, and will last much longer.
Brava Shake Roof Replacement
This Mountain Brook, AL home required 44 squares of Brava Shake. When the original roof was removed, wooden slates were found. It turned out the entire roof was once re-decked with new roofing materials that complied with local building codes. This provided Authentic Restoration with a quality nailable surface to install Brava Shake. The homeowner also opted for ice and water shields and a high-quality synthetic felt to provide the ultimate leak-proof roofing system.
The installation results were absolutely stunning. According to Mark Craney, owner at Authentic Restoration, “the homeowners were ecstatic with their new Brava Shake Tile.” If you live in Alabama and are interested in learning more about Brava Roof Tile, contact Authentic Restoration.
