What You Need to Know About Cedar Roofs
While cedar is becoming a more common roofing material, many homeowners still have questions about it. Here are the most common questions that we receive.
What is the lifespan of a cedar roof?
A properly installed cedar roof can last from 30 to 40 years with the right maintenance and care. Climate, exposure and proximity to salt water can all impact a cedar roof’s longevity.
Is a cedar roof more expensive?
As you might expect, a cedar roof is a bigger investment than an asphalt shingle roof, but for good reason. Cedar will last longer and look better, improving your home’s comfort and curb appeal.
Are cedar roofs weather-resistant?
Cedar roofs hold up extremely well in inclement weather. They are practically immune to hail damage and can stand up to high winds.
How is a cedar roof installed?
Cedar comes in shingles and shakes, and doesn’t take any longer to install than a standard asphalt shingle roof.
What makes cedar an environmentally-friendly material?
Unlike steel, aluminum and plastic, wood is a renewable resource. Responsible harvesting of trees can help protect the environment from resource depletion.
