What is Cedar Shake Roofing?
A cedar shake roof is made of individual wooden, rectangular shingles that are attached in layers over a watertight under-layer. New cedar has a rich honey-brown tone that turns a golden ash color as it ages.
Benefits of Using Cedar Shake Roofing
Cedar shake roofs offer many benefits over other forms of roofing, including:
- Aesthetics – A cedar shake roof can transform the exterior of your home and give it a one-of-a-kind country estate look. Cedar roofs go with most architecture styles, from cottage to traditional. In addition, cedar shake roofing is very durable and a properly installed roof can last up to 50 or 60 years, sometimes longer.
- Longevity – Your new cedar shake roof may be the last roof you’ll ever have to put on your house. Even if you don’t intend to stay in your home for 50 years, installing a cedar roof can help boost your property value, as the prospective buyers will realize they won’t have to replace the roof anytime soon.
- Durability – Unlike many other types of wood, cedar is insect-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about your new roof inviting a swarm of pests to your home. Cedar shake also stands up to hail and storm damage, something that can wreak havoc with an asphalt roof and something Northern Virginia and Maryland homeowners are all too familiar with. Some insurance companies even offer a discount on homeowner’s policies for homes with cedar shake roofs.
- Energy Efficiency – Cedar also makes a good insulator for your home and the naturally soft color doesn’t absorb the summer heat like an asphalt roof does.
Things to Consider About Cedar Shake Roofing
As lovely and as durable as a cedar shake roof is, such a roof is not right for every home or every homeowner. For one thing, a cedar roof is quite a bit more expensive than an asphalt shingle roof.
