About Us

The creation of customized cedar shake roofs has been the passion of the Shake Guys for many years.  Our desire to create artistically unique roofs combined with our unparalleled work ethic is what has made us the preeminent symbol for performance, prestige and reliability.

The philosophy of the Shake Guys is rooted in our vocation and on the philosophical foundation that hard work and elegance go hand in hand. For over a decade, we have applied a high standard of craftsmanship to help homeowners protect the precious memories created inside their home with a roof that both serves a function while also being a uniquely crafted piece of art. As the decades pass, the roofs maintain an artistic dignity that is a testament to the dedication and passion put into the installation by the skilled craftsmen. Our dedication to creating a beautiful roof is matched by our desire to ensure that our customers are satisfied with the end result and therefore are involved with the process from the inception of a new project until completion.
The job is never finished if the customer is not 100% satisfied with the end result. Installation of a cedar shake roof is a process that is the culmination of many years of perfecting the technique. Every project that the Shake Guys take on is another demonstration of our dedication to the craft that has consumed our lives. All aspects are perpetually analyzed with the goal of perfection as the end result.
The life span of a roof is greatly affected by the technique that is implemented during the installation and that is why we insist on using the finest cedar shake wood. For cedar shakes & shingles the depth of drive is crucial. The single most important feature for a good pneumatic roof nailer is the ability to accurately dial in the depth that the nails are driven. Our pneumatic roof nailer lets us adjust the depth of drive with absolute accuracy & precision. Overdriving or underdriving any fastener will affect the integrity of the roofing system.
Strong… Dependable… Durable…
