Cedar Shake Shingles
Cedar is a beautiful choice for new roofs. The material competes well against other roofing options while providing great cost-effectiveness in weather-resistant durability and strength in a lifespan that normally lasts 30 years or more if properly maintained.
Reasons Why You Should Want A Cedar Shake Roof
They look great:
Cedar is rustic, natural, and beautiful in appearance. This is the deciding factor for many choosing the material, and it works especially well for older homes and those with particularly lively roofs homeowners want to enhance and show off. As it ages, cedar is known for taking on a pleasing silver tone.
They give great value for money:
Cedar shake shingles more than make up for their slightly higher price to asphalt shingles with an additional 10 years of longevity. They also have nearly two times better insulation value than their asphalt cousins, further benefiting your wallet with lower energy bills.
They are weather-resistant:
Cedar stands up very well to high-impact storms and hail, in addition to being very wind-resistant. Cedar is also more algae-resistant than asphalt. Although wood, the shingles are naturally resistant to both insects and UV damage from the sun. In humid areas, cedar expands very little and holds installations together despite temperature fluctuations.
