Wooden shingle roofs were prevalent in the early North American colonies. They remain an option for those seeking a different architectural vision for their property, a look that states classic quality, taste and timelessness. Aside from their aesthetic value, products are lightweight, as well as wind and impact resistant. Western Red Cedar withstands serious freeze/thaw cycles and its natural oils resist decay. Cedar is one of the only renewable roofing products on the market today. A truly green product that keeps your house cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
With natural preservatives that make it resistant to moisture, UV rays, and insect damage, cedar roofing is also wind resistant. Adaptable to tough and varied climatic conditions, cedar is less susceptible to moss growth compared to many other roofing materials. Regarded as one of the world’s toughest woods, cedar is a naturally durable roofing material. A smart investment for your home, it will also enhance the structural strength of your roof. Cedar is a natural insulator, allowing cooler temperatures inside in the summer months and warmth in the winter months. This will help save you money on heating and air conditioning.
Along with its practical benefits, cedar roofing offers a natural and timeless look that will enhance the curb appeal of your home.
