‘Shake’ Things Up With a New Roofing System

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: ExteriorRoofing

Many homeowners have found the Country Manor Shake (CMS) roof system to be an innovative yet cost-effective way to enhance the value and beauty of their homes. But the CMS roof may be an even better solution for a townhouse complex, subdivision or planned community, especially those that are currently covered with an aging asphalt composition, or “rent-a-roof.”

Asphalt roofs are unattractive and susceptible to weathering damage. They’re hot and require quite a bit of maintenance. They have to be replaced every 15 years on average, regardless of what the warranty claims, and they double in price every 10 to 15 years or so. Even though they appear to be low-cost, they’re actually one of the more expensive re-roof choices you can make.

Members of The Hawaiian King Home Owners Association (AOAO) have found that one of the best ways to save money while adding real value to their complex is to upgrade their conventional roof by selecting the Country Manor Shake roof system and having it installed by Aluminum Shake Roofing Inc. (ASR). The company has re-roofed more than a dozen complexes on four islands and has a reputation for getting the job done — on time and on budget. ASR can even set up a payment schedule in which you don’t have to put up a lot of cash before the work is actually done.

You will get the look of beautiful, hand-split cedar shakes, but without the drawbacks. Take a look at the photos on this page. Rust-free aluminum will never rot or blow off, can be walked on without special knowledge and the roof has the highest fire rating required by the building code. The finish is warranted not to come off or fade more than a very small amount for 30 years. Most of the time, the CMS roof can be installed right on top of a conventional roof, which saves the time and expense of a tear-off and keeps the old roof out of the landfill.
