Cedar shingles can crack or split due to weathering or a direct impact. They can curl or bow over time, too. It is best to replace damaged or bowed shingles instead of attempting to repair the shingle in place. For more information about cedar shingles and shakes visit the Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau.
