Cedar roofs – one of the most beautiful varieties of roofing – will give your home a timeless visual appeal and increase the value of your home. Cedar shingles and shakes provide excellent thermal insulation. As a protective barrier, they can provide up to twice the insulation of asphalt shingles and reduce your energy costs. They keep your house’s interior warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Because cedar roofs are resistant to storms and harsh weather, such as heavy rain, snowstorms, and winds, they are strong and long-lasting. Also, as they are wood products, they are naturally environmentally friendly.
With their pleasant smell and mite-repellant properties, cedar shingles are an attractive feature for prospective homebuyers. Once associated with a rustic aesthetic, cedar roofs are now common in modern residential architecture. Cedar shingles and shake come in a variety of shapes. They pair well with copper accents, such as valleys and flashing.
