Types of Cedar Roofs Roofs We Install
Cedar Shake Roofing
Synthetic cedar shake roofing, like its natural counterpart, is cut by hand, unlike most roofing which is machine-cut. Each piece is made individually, granting more variance to the pieces through a non-uniform style. In addition, synthetic cedar will not suffer the same wear-and-tear that natural shake would, allowing you to enjoy your roof’s look for longer. While this can greatly add to the aesthetic of your home, an experienced roofer must handle the installation. If done incorrectly, the different-sized pieces can open your roof up to gaps and leaks. We have installed many synthetic cedar shake roofs and will make sure your roof is water-tight and given the rustic look you deserve.

The Pros and Cons of Cedar Roofing
Pros of Cedar Roofing
Curb Appeal: Cedar’s natural wood look makes it a unique and beautiful roofing choice.
Longevity: Proper care can ensure that your cedar roofing lasts for decades!
Weather-resistant: Cedar roofs require fewer repairs after inclement weather. They stand up well to heavy rains, strong winds, and other severe weather conditions.
Cons of Cedar Shingles
Drying Issues: Cedar roofing materials are made from trees, which leaves them more prone to drying out. This can leave your home more susceptible to issues like fire damage, cracking, and pest issues.
Expensive: Cedar is considered a high-end roofing option because of its natural variety, and as such, it is more expensive than other roofing materials.
Maintenance: To prevent moss and mildew buildup, cedar roofs will require more maintenance compared to other roofing types.
