Cedar roof repairs in Lake Forest, IL should be handled by an expert right?

Luckily Lake Forest has a lot of cedar roofs... thus there are neighbors to ask for a reference and roofing companies that specialize in cedar shake as it is far different from asphalt shingle. My advice it to call and talk to Shake Guys no matter what!

I learned a lot about roofing and a whole lot about Cedar Shake quality. Turns out I can spot bad cedar now Shake Guys really take the time to educate homeowners. I double checked many of their claims and they were all true.
