For A Natural Look
The beauty of a natural cedar shake roof is without question. When first installed the roof has a light brown-reddish colour but then weathers over time and turns to grey or soft silver.
Shakes are manufactured by wood splitting and have a rather rough-textured front surface and a smooth back.
Esthetics is not the only reason why people choose a cedar roof for their home. A cedar roof may help to reduce your heating and cooling costs.
The shingles and shakes with their natural wood fibres act as an additional layer of insulation to your home.
A wood roof can also be resistant to numerous moderate hail storms suffering minimal damage.
