Roof is a very important part of a house and its maintenance and care is equally important as that of the other parts of a house like windows, walls and doors. People are usually unaware of the properties and features of the different kinds of roofs and the way one should take their care. The roof made of concrete may not need that much care and maintenance as the roof made of wood does. In fact the wood roof is made from the wooden shingles and shakes. The most important factor which should take into consideration is that the wood specie of which the shingles and shakes are constructed should be known.
Usually the wood roofs are installed on residential buildings. The first and foremost step in wood roof installation is the selection of the wood specie which decides both the warranty and life of the roof. In fact there are some wood species which get rotted and termites very quickly while others are naturally resistant. Therefore a special care should be taken while selecting the wood roof.
