Beautiful Rustic Cedar Shake Roofing

Cedar Shake Roofing is as rich in it look as it is in history.  There are some differences however in how cedar shakes are made today.  Years ago cedar shakes were hand split and varied greatly in there thickness and dimensions.  Today cedar shakes are machined with one side sawed, but the other is split and left irregular preserving that rustic appearance that cedar shakes are known.

Cedar shake roofing is also different from cedar shingles which are flat and not as thick.  But whether you go with cedar shake or cedar shingles it is nice to know you are using an eco friendly roofing material.

Cedar shake roofing has many advantages, such as its durability and resistance to severe storms.  In general you can expect your cedar shake roof to last up to 10 years longer than an asphalt roof.  It is also very energy efficient providing insulation properties 2 times that of asphalt shingles, that translates to a noticeable difference with your home’s heating and cooling costs.  But, at the end of the day people love cedar shake roofing because it’s natural beauty and graceful aging.
