Cedar Roof FAQs

Q: What is it made from?
A: Cedar roofing materials are made from – unsurprisingly, cedar! Cedar is a very durable tree that once put to work makes a great roofing material.

Q: Does it cost more than regular asphalt shingles?
A: Because cedar shake is an all-natural material, unlike asphalt shingles, they require extra care and precision to install. As a result, it can be more costly to choose cedar, but the difference in quality is unmistakable.

Q: How many years will a cedar roof last?
A: With proper maintenance, your cedar roof will last up to 25 years, but it could easily last for longer the more regular your maintenance is.

Q: What is the most durable cedar material?
A: Western red cedar is the most resistant to rot and decay. It has one of the longest lifespans of all North American softwood cedar trees. It’s also the most abundant type.

Types of Cedar Roofs Roofs We Install

Cedar Shake Roofing

Very piece of cedar shake roofing is individually hand-cut, rather than mass-produced on an assembly line. This leads to more variation and non-uniform pieces, and while this often adds to the aesthetic of your home to provide a more rustic look, experienced installation is a must. If done improperly, the different-sized pieces can expose your roof to any number of gaps and leaks. Crown Exteriors will ensure that your roof is water-tight the first time, so you can relax and enjoy your new roof.

Pros and Cons of Cedar Roofing

When making your selection about the type of cedar roofing to fit your needs, there will be pros and cons. We have broken down the list for you:

Pros of Cedar Roofing

  • Curb Appeal: The natural wood look of cedar roofs makes it a unique and beautiful roofing choice.
  • Longevity: While 25 years is the expected life of cedar, you can get anywhere even more years of life out of your roof with proper maintenance and routine treatments.
  • Weather-resistant: When competing against severe weather conditions, cedar roofs stand up well to heavy rains, strong winds, and others. When facing storm damage, they require fewer repairs than other roofing types.

Cons of Cedar Roofing

  • Maintenance: In order to prevent moss and mildew formations, cedar roofs require a little more maintenance compared to other roofing types in order to keep them in tip-top condition.
  • Expensive: Cedar is considered a high-end option for roofing due to its natural variety. As a result, it is more expensive than other roofing materials.
  • Drying Issues: Since cedar roofing materials are made from cedar trees, they are more prone to drying out than other roofing materials. That means your home is more susceptible to fire damage, cracking, and pest issues.
