Cedar Wood Shake Roof

You might have noticed there are quite a few woods roofs throughout metro Atlanta. While the Atlanta roofers at KTM can’t say we’ve roofed all these homes, we can say that we are wood roofing experts and are often called upon when a homeowner is considering an Atlanta wood roof.

Did you know? Wood shakes are often mistaken for wood shingles?


Below is a Sample of Benefits for Wood Shake Roofing:
