Why Professionals Are Choosing Cedar
Professionals are choosing cedar roofing for its strength, versatility, insulating properties, and of course, its beauty. Cedar can be used for classic rustic cottages to modern and contemporary architecture. Cedar roofing is extremely durable and it can withstand damage from many of our natural elements better than many other roofing products on the market. It is resilient in extreme weather conditions and can even absorb the impact of hail.
We feel comfortable providing warranties on our products because Cedar has truly stood the test of time and been through rigorous testing. Moreover, our cedar products can be pressure treated to protect against fungal decay or treated with fire retardant for added protection where a fire assembly is required.
Our high standards for quality mean our products not only meet the standards of the Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau, but are also backed by our 30/50 Year Warranty.
Introducing Alaskan Yellow Cedar
Alaskan Yellow Cedar is a far more durable and denser species than Western Red Cedar. Its uniformity in color allows it to weather into a beautiful one tone silver patina. There are no changes when it comes to Alaskan Yellow Cedar roof installation. A better product with no additional hassle!
