Are Wood Shake Roofs Fire Hazards?

Traditional shake shingle roofs have been banned by municipalities in Colorado, California and other states who often face elevated fire risk. The roofing industry took notice and began manufacturing cedar shake and synthetic shake tiles specifically treated to be fire retardant. You have no reason to be concerned when investing in any of the products available on the market today. However aging shake roofs, made of untreated cedar, do pose an increased fire hazard. If you fear that your aging shake roof may be a dangerous, we encourage you to schedule a roofing inspection today!
