Types of Cedar Roofs Roofs We Install

There are two types of cedar roofing to consider: cedar shake roofing and cedar shingle roofing.

Cedar Shake Roofing

Split and cut by hand, every cedar shake piece is unique. It’s a classic, eye-catching option that is the perfect choice to add charm to your home. Because of its variance in shape, an experienced roofer should handle the installation. If not done properly, the surface of your roof may be misaligned, leaving your home susceptible to leaks and damage.

Cedar Shingle Roofing

Cedar shingles are different in that they are sawed on each side. This cutting method makes them more uniform in appearance, but it leaves cross-grain saw marks. They’re a less expensive alternative to shakes and provide a consistent look to your roof.
