Types of Cedar Roofs We Install
Cedar Shake Roofing
Cedar shake roofing is cut by hand, making each piece unique in shape. This offers a beautiful variance for your roof and can greatly add to the rustic look of your curb appeal. However, it’s essential to have your cedar shake roof installed by a professional, as the non-uniform quality of cedar shakes can mean gaps for leaks when not properly installed.
Cedar Shingle Roofing
Cedar shingles are factory-made and cut by machine, making every piece uniform and the same for a clean-cut roof. You can find panels of different sizes and widths depending on what you want your roof to look like. Because of the way they are manufactured, cedar shingles are less expensive than cedar shakes.
