Top Reasons to Install a Cedar Shake Roof

Today, we will discuss the features and benefits of our cedar shake roofs.

Distinct and Naturally Beautiful Appearance

Authentic cedar shakes have a beauty that other materials find hard to match. Unlike other materials, cedar shakes age beautifully. A cedar roof will give your home a sense of history. Wood shakes are also the material of choice for many traditional home styles. For example, they look great on Cape Cod, Colonial and Craftsman style homes. A cedar shake roof is also a great choice if you have a gambrel, hip, and gable style roof.

Great Durability and Storm Resistance

As an experienced roofing company, we recommend this roofing material for homeowners who want to stay in their current home. This is because, with proper maintenance, a cedar roof can last for decades. You can also count on a cedar roof to withstand storms and hail. Many cedar shake manufacturers also treat their products with fire-resistant chemicals to make them safe. High-quality cedar shingles and shakes can also resist decay and insects.


Choosing cedar shakes for your home can also be good for the environment. Many manufacturers harvest and process cedar shakes using a sustainable process. In addition, cedar roofs have a long life span. This reduces the need for constant roof replacement, which can help conserve landfill space and reduce resource consumption. Cedar roofs also provide natural insulation, which can help reduce your utility costs.

Modern cedar shake roofing systems can compete with other roofing materials when it comes to durability and life span. They are an excellent option if you want a beautiful and long-lasting roof.
