Cedar Shingles & Shakes Roofing

Heather & Little has been the premiere choice for all cedar roofing needs for over 90 years, from new installations to repairs and replacements. Cedar roof shingles were the preferred choice for all roofing needs long before modern roofing options became available. Many historic buildings and mature government properties have made use of cedar shake roof and shingle options, and continue to reinstall them when replacement or repair is required. Cedar shakes and shingles offer a beautiful and traditional design opportunity for those looking to restore a building back to its former glory, or make use of a biodegradable and earth friendly option on a new property.

Why Cedar Roof Shingles and Cedar Shake Roofs?

Whether a new or centuries old property, many buildings can benefit from the beauty of cedar roofing shingles or shakes. Cedar is a naturally durable and accessible wood that has been used as a roofing material long before synthetic materials. Cedar shingles and shakes are naturally insect and UV resistant, and can easily stand up to harsh winds and weather. Cedar shakes and shingles are also treated to limit water absorption, protecting this roofing material from heavy rain or snowfall. When properly maintained, cedar shingles can last up to 40 years without repair, far longer than any synthetic counterpart.
