The many benefits of Cedar

Although there are other woods available for shingles and shakes, we typically specify cedar. Cedar is the most cost-efficient option, possessing UV, insect and rot resistance, plus strength, flexibility, a fine scent, and can easily stand up to harsh winds and weather. Cedar shakes and shingles naturally 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 many synthetic counterparts. 

If you are interested in other types of wood such as redwood, cypress, spruce, pine and even teak, we can discuss the suitability and availability of these materials.

If you’re looking to have cedar roofing replaced or repaired on your upcoming roofing project, look no further than Heather & Little roofing. Our team of outstanding professional roofers will work with you to construct the optimal cedar shake roof for your property.
