Benefits of Wood Roofing
With many different types of roofing options available it can be difficult to choose which one is best for you. Whether you choose concrete, asphalt or cedar shakes, each one has its own pros and cons when it comes to costs, features and durability.
The following are some benefits of shake roofing to consider:
It is long-lasting, more hail-resistant than asphalt, and can withstand extreme temperatures and wind speeds up to 245 mph when properly installed & maintained
It offers natural insulation (superior to asphalt) saving on energy bills
It’s a far more eco-friendly roofing material than asphalt. It can be recycled, and the untreated shakes are biodegradable
Cedar has natural oils that make it decay-resistant and protect it from insects
It enhances the aesthetics of your house
Its 2-ply installation system offer extra protection and peace of mind
The option to extend its lifespan with maintenance (rather than re-roofing) makes it affordable for long-term owners
