Cedar is a great roofing option for homes because of its strength and durability. This practical material, if installed correctly, can result in a beautiful roof that will last for decades after it is put into place. A variety of stains can be used for the perfect color match to your home.
Cedar is an incredibly durable material – lasting an average of 10 years longer than common roofing systems. They are resilient to extreme weather conditions and are also incredibly energy efficient, which helps you (the homeowner) create additional savings on your energy bill.
There are, as with all types of roofing systems, some drawbacks to installing a cedar roof. The cost of a cedar roof is generally higher than asphalt and requires regular maintenance to prevent rot, mold or pest infestations. However, when considering the quality and longevity of cedar, you may find yourself preferring this top-quality material. And over time, cedar roofs yield a higher return on investment.
