Aesthetics:

Cedar roofs offer a natural, verdant beauty; they actually age gracefully, turning into a beautiful gray/silver tone. Because no two cedar cuts are exactly the same in color or texture, your roof will maintain a unique look even fromĀ other cedar roofs.

Durability:

Cedar wood shingles have a high resistance to the elements: wind, heavy rain, snowstorms, hurricanes, etc. It’s very long lasting, having a good 10 years more longevity than other basic roof materials such as asphalt.

Cedar roof offer about twice the insulation of asphalt roofs. Heating and cooling costs within the house are reduced, saving money on bills.
