Cedar Shakes & Shingles
Cedar shakes & shingles are a classic and timeless roofing choice. Wood products are beautiful and distinct, providing natural characteristics unique to each roof. For many years this was the standard roofing material. With the development of asphalt and fiberglass products that are available with a warranty at a lower price point, cedar installation isn't as popular as it once was. However, we do install many cedar roofs each year and for many clients that want a classic, rustic or heritage look this is their clear choice.
An example of our cedar roofing is Victoria’s “Point Ellice House” (Federal Gov't Heritage Park). Cedar comes in many different mill cuts such as barn shakes, shingles, and taper sawn. Phil is an expert in recommending which cut will be appropriate for your project. The cedar itself can be "Treated" with preservatives and fire retardants, which prolongs the life expectancy of the wood and comes with a warranty. A standard untreated cedar roof would typically last approximately 20 years. Phil is a cedar expert and has installed cedar roofs on entire subdivisions in the 80s & 90s. It is critical that an experienced cedar installer work on the job to ensure that the installation is done properly and will live up to its life expectancy.
Metal is a great option for West Coast weather. It is very durable for our wet months but also fire resistant, moss/mildew resistant, and is environmentally friendly with about 50% of the of the material from recycled products. Furthermore, heat reflection rather than absorption enables the metal roof to keep your home cooler in direct warm weather.Couple that with the fact that it is almost maintenance free and comes with a 40 year warranty. Metal roofing is a great roofing choice
