Why Consider a New Cedar Roof?

One of our top priorities is protecting homeowners against the ravages of wind, rain, and hail. Winters in Birmingham, when most of our 56 inches of rain per year tend to fall, are especially nasty. Compare that to the national average of 38 inches, and you’ll realize that water damage is a real threat to your roof.

Cedar shakes are one of the best ways to defend your home from the elements. A cedar roof can stand against everything from hail to snowstorms and last up to ten years longer on average than asphalt shingles.

Pros and Cons of Installing a Cedar Roof

Like all materials, cedar shakes have specific perks and drawbacks. Homeowners should consider all the information before deciding on the style and material of their new roof.

Benefits of Cedar Shakes

  • A beautiful, traditional presentation. Cedar shakes add a rustic quality to your home, aging over time from a rich earthy color to a gorgeous silvery tone.
  • Longevity and endurance. A cedar roof is one of the longest-lasting roofs available, making it one of the most cost-efficient options on the market.
  • Weather-resistant. Cedar shakes are, of course, able to withstand the harshest rainfall and keep out the heat at the height of summer.
  • Added value. A cedar roof raises the appeal of your home and makes it significantly more valuable when the time comes to sell.
  • Eco-friendly. It doesn’t hurt that cedar shakes can outperform virtually every other roofing material in terms of sustainability.

    Problems with Cedar Shakes

    • Added upfront cost. Compared to inexpensive asphalt shingles, cedar shakes cost more per square foot to install.
    • Regular maintenance. Like almost any roofing material, cedar roofs require upkeep, typically every 2 to 4 years.
    • Synthetic cedar shake shingle alternatives are a superior option
