Cedar At A Glance
Cedar roofing has many advantages to offer to your home. Among the most valuable is its long lifespan and durability. Cedar can easily outlive an asphalt shingle roof by years if not decades if it is well cared for. Cedar shake has a much higher rating against storm, rain, hail, and wind damage than its asphalt counterparts. This means fewer repairs overall and a longer time between complete roof replacements for your home which can save you money in the long run.
Using cedar shake instead of asphalt is also more visually striking and aesthetically appealing – as well as unique! Due to cedar being a natural material, the variations in the woodgrain guarantee a unique look no matter what – and the warm color palette of ambers, reds, and oranges will brighten up your home and draw attention to it. We highly recommend adding cooper accents to your home if you choose to install a cedar roof to complete “the look”.
Choosing cedar as a roofing material is also financially beneficial. Adding a cedar shake roof to your home will help you save money on energy bills as it is a naturally insulating material. If you are considering selling your home soon cedar can also increase the amount of money you get for your house. The increased curb appeal will help your home sell faster, and if the roof is well maintained a roofing inspector is likely to give you a higher price for it as cedar shake has an excellent reputation.
Maintaining Your Cedar Roof
If you already have a cedar roof and expect it to last a long time, then it must be properly cared for. To do this, we recommend regular inspections and a short visual check for damage from the ground after storms. Look for cracked shingles, missing shingles, and fungal growth on the cedar shake and shingles. If you spot any problems do not attempt to resolve this on your own as natural wood requires special care and treatments to not further aggravate the problem or cause moisture retention. With proper care your cedar roof can look beautiful for decades so contact us for an inspection today.
